Filed Under Auto Tips | Comments Off on Things To Check Before Buying A Used Car
Although buying a used car is economical it involves a lot of inspection before you decide on buying it. You do not want to end with something that is nothing more than a junk so, a careful inspection of the car is very important. There are certain things that you need to know that must be checked in the car before you buy it. Visiting and analyzing the car in good light maybe during daytime is a good idea. Be familiar with the car and do not rush through the inspection. It is much more challenging to buy an old car as it needs a lot of effort to check it condition and usage details.
• For starters check the run of the car. You should know how old the car is and how many years it has been used. Usually a car that 3-5years old is a good and decent buy. The mile-o-meter in the car can be helpful for calculations but it is very much possible that the mile-o-meter of the car has been tampered. So, make sure that you do not get fooled.
• The next and most important thing about the car is its engine. Check if the engine of the car is not noisy and runs smoothly. A healthy engine is essential for the car to last. An engine that is good is not very noisy and does not emit bad smoke.
• Certain things such as a tyre that is in good shape is also a plus point. However, if the tyres do not look very good you could bargain and negotiate with the price. You are sure to get reductions.
• They car owners might even try tricking you. They could have re-painted the car to hide the damages. So, be sure that you buy a car that has been well maintained. The bonnet area can be checked for scratches and any wear and tear. A good maintained car will be free of all this.
• The battery of the car is an integral component. Check that it is in a good running condition. If not there is always room for reductions in price.
• The electrical components, lighting, dippers, working music system are also important. If you see any of them not up to the mark you can demand reductions. If the car that you are looking at has air-conditioning facilities, check that it is working well.
• Once you are done with the inspection of the car you now need to make sure that all the documents related to the car are in proper condition. Ensure that the car you are buying from is the first owner of the car and no middlemen are involved. Check the registration certificate of the car and its authentic papers. Also check that the numbers on the engine and the papers match.
• Make sure that the car you buy has been registered in that very state if not, you do the proper documentation. Also check for the insurance of the car. Make sure that you know about the accidents and claims if any have been made for the car.
• Check if you can find cheap auto insurance for your new vehicle. You can visit comparison sites like cheapautoinsurance.net and get a few automobile insurance quotes for your new ride. Don’t make the mistake of buying a car without checking how much it would cost you to insure it. Some autos can be cheap to buy because it is expensive to insure. You have already blown the budget on it. Next thing you want is to find out you cannot pay the insurance premium.
Once you have checked all of the above you are in a good position to buy the car.

Filed Under Auto Tips | Comments Off on Purchasing Second-Hand Car Parts Online
In the early days it was very difficult if someone wanted to purchase second hand car parts. It was said to be something which would go on for a number of days until most parts were got at the most reasonable bargain from ten different shops. However nowadays it has become very easy to shop for second hand automobile parts and other accessories. Thanks to computers and the internet this has become something which is not so difficult after all. Now spare parts and second hand parts can be easily bought sitting in the comfort of your own residents without shedding even one drop of perspiration.
However this process is not as easy as it sounds. Before you sit for shopping in the first place always remember to keep your VIN pin (Vehicle Identification Number) ready. This helps in searching for what you’re looking for faster without much delay especially when it is a new engine that you’re looking for. When you sit online for purchasing and looking for a good deal, don’t get so lost in the technical descriptions of a part that when it arrives at your doorstep you realise that’s not what you went looking for firstly.
Also remember to ask the prices in the vehicle repair place near your house first and then go for online research. Sometimes online websites offer a price which is much more compared to the ones you get for real. This is because you don’t have to go looking for what you need and that much effort is not spent. A prior inquiry in such cases is always a good option. Never ever overlook the descriptions and details in the purchase brochure and always ask for a warranty even for the second hand purchase made online.
With the fast degrading environment, awareness is fast spreading and thus environment friendly things are becoming more and more adequate and their sales too is going up. However is best you know about eco friendly cars as much as you can. It is very common fast indeed that eco friendly cars are called so because they are way less harsh on the environment than the regular vehicles. The emissions are lower thus causing a lesser impact on the environment. Another thing about these cars is that if you get stopped at regular intervals due to red lights and traffic jams the gas engine turns off on its own kicking in the electric motor. However there is another advantage of parking as far as these vehicles are concerned. Parking is free for green vehicles by the government law. Bio ethanol vehicles are also available as green vehicles not only the electric engine ones.
However inspite of the various advantages the major con is the price. These vehicles are super expensive and might not be affordable by everybody. Since the technology used is very high standard not every garage may be able to repair your vehicle and the ones which are able to will charge a very expensive rate. The parts of this car are expensive to obviously the repair or replacement will be quite a pinch on your pockets. Insurance might be on the expensive side too for eco friendly vehicles. Fuel availability for these green cars can be tiring and not there in most places (bio ethanol).There are a few safety issues too, In case of an accident the electric engine tends to shut off.
If you do have an eco friendly car, maintenance is something which is of great importance. Washing the car weekly with minimum amount of chemicals and taking the least possible time helps a lot.
