3 Red Flags You Must Watch Out for When #Buying a #UsedVehicle From a #CarAuction
#Onlinecarauctions sites are a great place to find good condition #usedcars at #affordable rates.
When #buying a #usedvehicle, check the #car for any signs of rust. Used cars that have been subject to cold climates, run the risk of rust more than those that have been used more in areas with moderate climate. To check the car, get the car lifted and check for any signs of rust on the underside. Check the major #parts such as wheel wells, suspension, exhaust and frame rails. Once done checking the underside, check the doors, the #engine area and the trunk.
Not all #carauction #dealers are upfront about selling a car that's #flooddamaged. As a result many #usedcarbuyers end up buying a #flooddamagedcar, without even knowing that they bought one. To make sure that you don't make the same mistake, look out for water damage signs such as stained or discolored car fabric, dashboard and other interiors. Another way out is to check the carpet. If the carpet is loose or doesn't match with the upholstery on the roof and the doors, then chances are that the car is flood damaged.
Leakages such as dripping oil, hissing exhaust are easily detectable and you may not need an expert to tell you about the leakage in the car. However, when inspecting the car don't just pay attention to the external leaks that are visible to the naked eye, but also look for the ones that are difficult to detect. For example, carbon monoxide leaking inside the car is not easily detectable as it is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas.
