Hi brandon arneson president of champion strategies and spokesperson for shopsmart autos, giving you the best information we can when it comes to your next automotive release or purchase.
Today, we would like to take a look at the customers who test being sold by a private party.
Now getting the most out of your test drive is very crucial, considering whether it is being sold by a car, dealership or a private party.
But how can you be sure the car you are purchasing from a private party is the right one from you.
So here’s a few things just to consider if you are buying a party from a third party, the first thing: don’t let yourself fall in love with the car before seeing it or driving it.
Maybe you don’t always want it, a sports car, but you see what looks to be a great deal on your perfect car somewhere out on social media.
Whatever you do go into the test drive for any car with a completely open mind, don’t let yourself be swayed by your nostalgia for a vehicle or your awe of the status of the effectiveness or the lines.
If you drive the car and you notice that things are not sounding right, listen to that little voice in your head telling you so, in other words, set your standards for what you want in your next vehicle, narrow down your choices.
Maybe you can’t decide between a sedan or an suv and that’s fine make sure to test plenty of cars that fit what you want in your time.
This will give you an idea of how different vehicles of that class handle if nothing else, and can help you make an informed decision on whether to purchase one inspect the vehicle before you drive it.
So before you take a vehicle out on the road for a test, drive go through an inspection of it open the hood.
Take a look at the fluid levels, make sure you know what you’re looking for first to see if there’s any red flags, if the oil is thick and sludgy, for example, that usually means that it hasn’t been changed often and can be a bad sign for you.
Going further check the fan belts hoses for cracks check.
The vehicle tires for tread depth check the tire pressure.
It’s always easy to get one of those handy tire pressure checkers with you visually inspect the vehicle’s exterior for fillers that may be hiding under the paint.
This could indicate that the car had been into an accident.
We want to make sure that the vehicle you spend your hard learning for is the vehicle that you need now we’re going to continue tomorrow on what to look for when you’re buying a vehicle privately.
Once again, brandon hardison president of champion strategy and spokesperson for shop, smart, auto as always in parting, you go out and you make it a champion day.
