看二手车时该怎么看

购买二手车是削减驾驶成本的好方法,因为大多数新车在第一年就损失了其价值的40%。

But there are risks so it's important to take your time rather than rush into any deal, and to buy as far as possible with your head rather than your heart.

Pitfalls to watch out for, when buying a used car
Clocking

时钟是绕过高级汽车上的里程表以提高其明显的价值和要价的非法实践。每1,000英里拆卸每一英里大大增加值。

Car cloning

有时,通过用几乎相同的车辆(相同的制造,型号和颜色)替换数字板来替换数字板,从而获得另一辆车的身份。

``剪裁''

This is when the remains of two or more cars, which have usually been accident–damaged and written off by insurers, are welded together, then illegally given the identity of one of the wrecks.

The cosmetic work is often outstanding, and it's usually very difficult to spot a 'cut–and–shut' from the outside.

For absolute confidence, invest in aCar Data Checkto unearth the car's history.

General advice
Budget carefully

如果您要借钱购买汽车,那么在出去查看任何汽车之前,最opebet平台d好获得贷款报价。这样一来,您就会知道您负担得起的东西,并且能够判断出经销商提供的任何资金是否符合价值。

Do your homework

Check price guides and compare similar cars in the classifieds so you know as much as you can about the value of different cars to avoid being overcharged.

Websites likewww.honestjohn.co.ukand model-specific forum sites can be a useful source of information on 'common' faults and 'what to look for' tips but bear in mind that the few who've had a poor experience are likely to be more outspoken than satisfied customers.

Don't view a car in the rain, in poor light or at night

如果是湿的,您将无法正确检查汽车的状况 - 水隐藏了划痕,凹痕和其他问题。确保您可以清楚地看到车辆。

Ask about service history

Most cars require some work during the year so the owners of a car a few years old should have amassed quite a sheaf of garage bills for work or parts as well as previous MOT certificates, and records of regular servicing.

  • 如果没有历史,请问为什么
  • Does it look like there might be a persistent fault that still may not have been fixed?
  • Does the history tell a consistent story
Check for outstanding finance

Buying, leasing or hiring a car on finance is more popular than it's ever been. This means that a large proportion of vehicles on the road are actually owned by finance providers until their customers, the driver or keeper, pay off the finance agreement in full.

If you buy from someone who's not paid off their finance agreement, the finance provider could recover the car, potentially leaving you out of pocket and without a car.

This makes it more important than ever to carry out aCar Data Check, particularly if you're buying from a private seller or online auction/advertising site. Most reputable dealers will have carried out a vehicle check before putting the car on the forecourt, but we'd advise you to check with the dealer that it's been done.

V5C registration document

Insist on seeing the V5C vehicle registration document - this shows the registered keeper and not the legal owner.

Is the present keeper the person selling you the car? If not, then why are they selling the car for someone else?

The V5C shows the details of previous keepers too. Why not contact them to find out more about when they owned the car, what work was done and how many miles they covered?

Previous keepers have no vested interest so you should be able to rely on their comments

  • 做they service it regularly?
  • 做they do much mileage in it?
  • 做they have any major servicing work done it?
  • 做they modify the vehicle in any way?
MOT

If the car is three years old or more make sure there's a continuous series of annual MOT 'certificates'.

如果您知道车辆的注册号和V5C上的文档参考,则可以检查车辆的MOT状态和历史(back to 2005) online too.

Recorded mileage should increase steadily with age and be consistent with the service record. If it doesn't then you'll want to hear a good explanation as to why not.

买家当心

Be wary of anything that seems like a real bargain, or has a very low mileage for its age. There are bargains to be had but in general, if a deal looks too good to be true then it most likely is.

If you know what you're doing then use our DIY inspection checklist to help make sure you look the car over thoroughly.

凸轮皮带

以及普通(通常是一年)维修的主要项目,例如制动液,防冻液或者凸轮皮带续订汽车制造商应在一定年龄或里程中进行指定。

如果凸轮皮带破裂,则可能会损坏几千英镑,通常是新的发动机是最经济的选择。

Some engines have a chain instead of a belt and these normally last the life of the vehicle but if your car does have a belt you must make sure it's replaced when due.

If a belt change was due but the service record doesn't show clearly that it was done then the belt will have to be renewed as soon as possible for peace of mind.

Handbook

确保手册在汽车中,因为如果不替换,它们可能会很昂贵。

Look to see how the security system works – and check that it does – and find out what keys were provided when the car was new. Modern car keys can cost £100+ to replace so if you need more than one key and there's only one available you'll need to bear that cost in mind.

Coloured 'master' keys provided by some manufacturers to programme new spare keys for the car are even more expensive to replace.

There's no legal requirement but cars are generally sold new with at least one spare key. If there's not a spare now ask why not.

试驾

The test drive is your only opportunity to check the car's general mechanical condition and to find our for sure that it meets all your needs:

  • 驾驶位置舒适吗?
  • 您可以轻松到达/操作所有控件吗?
  • 孩子座椅适合吗?
  • Does the golf bag or pushchair fit in the boot?

More test drive advice

仔细看

Misaligned panels or mismatched colours on doors, bonnet and tailgate can indicate that the car has been repaired after a shunt. Traces of spray paint on door handles, window seals and mouldings can indicate repairs too.

If the engine bay looks like it has recently been power-washed clean the owner could be trying to remove evidence of fluid leaks. A check under the bonnet after a lengthy test drive should reveal any problems.

Seats and carpets

座椅和地毯始终可以清洁,甚至可以更换,但是内部织物头上的污渍无法完全去除。

如果安装了座椅盖,请在其下面检查是否有损坏的迹象。您可以更换座椅,但这可能非常昂贵,尤其是当它们包含电动机或安全气囊时。

锁轮螺母

用于锁定轮螺母的适配器有一个习惯失踪的习惯。如果安装了锁定轮螺母,请检查以确保工具包中包含所需的特殊适配器,并适合螺母。

不要压力购买

总会有其他车辆,因此,如果这是不正确的,那么该走开了。

Be wary of and don't be swayed by 'sob stories' like change of job, break-up of relationship, moving aboard, new baby on the way and so on. The bottom line is that you're buying a car to help yourself, not anyone else.

在您交出任何钱之前opebet平台d
  • Agree collection/delivery arrangements
  • 确切确认价格中的内容
  • Confirm any work that the seller has agreed to do
  • Make sure you get a receipt showing vehicle details, price, terms of sale and the seller's details.
