Instructions for car buyers
The beauty of a used car is its uniqueness. No other brings together the same mileage, the same accessories, the same condition and the same price. Following are few important tips for used car buyers in Dubai.
Once you have established your criteria and the intended use of this stopped vehicle, be sure to identify the trends and more importantly, the market value of the vehicle. At this time of year, it is easier to negotiate the purchase of a convertible or a sports car than a full-wheel drive vehicle.
Classifieds and Dealers
The time has come to go hunting. To find the right deal, check out the classifieds and plan pilgrimages to the grounds of many dealers, used car dealers, garage owners and homeowners. Do not neglect any avenue, even if there are sometimes considerable price differences.
If you are looking for a recent opportunity, a stop at the dealer. The dealer is generally not cluttered with older vehicles (more than four or five years) or unpopular. His stock refreshes regularly, but prices are generally higher than the rest of the market, especially if it is a vehicle bearing the brand represented by the dealer or a certified opportunity. Dealer benefits from an additional limited warranty and a more rigorous inspection, and all recalls that may have been overlooked have been completed. However, this does not guarantee that the vehicle will be free of problems.
The second-hand vehicle dealer sometimes offers a wider choice. Recent and older opportunities are sometimes jumbled together. As at the dealership, second-hand vehicle dealers generally offer financing opportunities and, where applicable, a guarantee. Depending on the establishment, the quality of the products is variable and the prices are generally more competitive, apparently than at the dealers. Some even specialize in some very specific categories (hybrid, electric or only SUVs).
Buying a used vehicle from an individual has the advantage of paying only one (provincial) tax, as opposed to two for a merchant, and getting a better price. But this last statement is partially true. Some individuals have a high regard for the market value of their vehicle, under the pretext that it is unique. Are not they all? No real guarantee is offered, and the buyer to find his own financing.
To end the extended warranties
Considering the increased reliability of vehicles, the informed consumer has every interest in declining any proposal for an extended warranty. It is offered at a prohibitive price, does not generally cover all components of the vehicle and is sometimes subject to certain restrictions. It is better, like the owners of a condominium, to provide a contingency fund to deal with possible repairs.
