Used Cars in Brisbane can offer big savings compared to buying new! Although, you need to make sure the vehicles are in good condition and not falsely advertised. The following tips help you deal with used car sellers and teach you how to spot signs of trouble.

5 tips you need:

1. Do Your Research

If you’ve seen a pre-owned car you’re thinking of buying, find out if the price advertised is fair by looking online and in classified ads. Keep in mind that the cost of the car will be impacted by its age and condition, and that prices can vary in different parts of the country.

2. Stick to Your Budget

Don’t be tempted to spend more than you budgeted unless you can comfortably afford to. When purchasing Used Cars in Brisbane consider services and repair costs to improve a older style car. Also take into account the higher running costs if it has a less efficient engine than your previous car.

3. Ask Questions

If the seller is not open to answering questions, this should make you suspicious. Ask their reason for selling the car, how long they have had it and whether it’s been involved in any accidents. Understanding their motives for selling and the cars past will give you a better understanding of your purchase.

4. Inspections

If you’re not experienced at checking cars, ask if you can bring a mechanic to give the car an inspection and check for any potential problems not identified by the seller. Mosley’s Automotive can check on Used Cars in Brisbane and make sure you are getting what you pay for.

5. Test Drive

This is a crucial step and should not be skipped! Nothing gives you a clearer idea of how the car will handle than taking it for a spin and performing a number of manoeuvres before you sign anything.
