The more kilometres clocked by a car the lower is its resale value. The odometer will tell you how much the car has been used but beware of the fact that the meter can be tampered with. The best thing to do is to buy a second-hand car with a pre-owned car warranty from a reputed multibrand car service centre like MyTVS, so you can rest assured that you’ve got the best deal.
As you search for your dream car, you will be surprised to see that some of the cars on sale are just a few months old, while yet others have been on the road for more than two decades! Remember, a newer car will mean better features and less wear and tear.
• Fuel Type
Your usage or monthly running should decide the fuel type – petrol, CNG, LPG or diesel. A diesel car is a better choice if your usage is above 1200-1500kms per month. If your usage is limited to weekends or occasional family trips, a petrol car should serve the purpose. On the other hand, a car that comes with a CNG kit could prove to be a worthy choice and also reduce your fuel bills. Installing a CNG kit in a used petrol car however could probably cost you in the range of Rs 20,000 – 45,000 depending on the brand and type of kit.
Evaluate the availability of gas stations, fuel efficiency and price per kg/l to check if it is the most viable fuel option for you. Car maintenance needs like car oiling and car check up have to be a priority, irrespective of the fuel type.
• Certified Centers vs. Local Car Garages
It is important to ensure that you buy a used car from a certified and reputed center. Pre-owned cars may burn a hole in your pocket in terms of maintenance and car repair, if they haven’t been inspected and serviced properly.
