Some tips to follow when inspecting a second hand car you are interested in buying; Have the car mechanically inspected, if you're not comfortable doing so yourself, take someone with you, who knows about mechanics or alternatively have the car inspected at a workshop.
Ask to see the service book if it's not in the cubbyhole of the vehicle and inspect it for any discrepancies, the general rule is that any car should be serviced at least once a year or every 10 000Km to 15 000Km.
Then, inspect the body, make sure to inspect every panel and look for signs of overspray and that the colours of the panels match. Keep in mind that front bumpers and bonnets are often resprayed due to stone chips but look for signs of repairs inside the bonnet as those are a possible give away that the second hand car you are interested in was involved in an accident. Common repairs and replacements to look out for are broken headlight clips or recently replaced headlight units, you will notice if the headlight unit's plastic looks much newer than what is to be expected of a second hand car, other replacements to look out for are a recently replaced radiator.
When inspecting the inside of the used car, remember to test everything, adjust the seat so it is comfortable for you, test the front and back electric windows, if applicable, and adjust the rear-view mirror. Also remember to test the aircon when you take the second hand car on a test drive and keep the radio switched off on the test drive so you can listen for any unusual noises that could indicate problems or repairs needed.
It is also a good idea to ask the sales executive for a list of known defects as the Consumer Protection Act requires a used car dealer to declare any known defect of a used car to a potential buyer.
