HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT CAR
Wherever you choose to buy, always prepare well as this is a huge investment. To those who are new at buying cars below is a list of things you need to check:
Get insurance quotes; any work that might be needed (used car); Shop around for good finance deals if you are getting a loan.
Compare similar cars in the various classifieds websites so you know as much as you can about the value of different cars to avoid being overcharged.
Avoid viewing a car in the rain, in poor light or at night so you can see all the angels as you might miss condition of the car e.g. scratches & dents
This might be difficult to establish especially if a car has been imported but you can check on inspection report to ensure the car has been graded.
This will give you a feel of the mechanical condition of the car.
If a deal looks too good to be true then it most likely is. Get a proper mechanic to inspect the car and ensure you also check the log book with the relevant authority (KRA).
Agree collection or delivery arrangements; Confirm exactly what's included in the price (warranties); Confirm any work that the seller has agreed to do; make sure you get a formal agreement showing vehicle details, price, terms of sale and the seller's details.
