You need a car and you are willing to buy a second hand car to fulfill your need, but you also want to make sure that the car you are buying is worth every rupee that you are spending on it. If you are buying from a dealer then you have nothing to worry about, but buying from private sellers can be a little tricky. Price for used Honda City in Bangalore is not your only concern; you should be worried about the quality of the car as well. Here are some questions that you need answered regarding the maintenance of the car that you should ask when you visit the seller and inspect the car.

What kind of oil is used in the car?

You need to know whether the car you are planning to buy is well maintained or not. Asking about the oil is important in this regard. There are only a few ways that a seller can answer and each answer will have a different significance. If he or she answered quickly, it probably means that they did the oil change themselves and also took care of the overall car maintenance..

Did you sell any used cars before?

There are a lot of people who like restoring or refurbishing old cars and then selling them for a tidy profit. So, this question has a lot of significance. If the seller is one such regular seller of used cars, it’s possible that they are good at fixing up the cars and have done the best job possible. But there are some unscrupulous sellers who are more interested in the profit than in fixing the cars. You most definitely don’t want to buy a car from someone like that.
