Tips when buying a used car

 

Carhistory.com.au provides the following tips for Australian consumers to consider when making a second hand car purchase:

  • Inform the seller you intend to do checks on the car.
  • Obtain the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and go to www.carhistory.com.au to get the car’s complete history (your VIN number can be found on your engine, on your registration papers and sticker, or on the inside of most car doors).
  • Get an independent mechanical inspection.
  • On the day you take ownership of the vehicle, purchase a PPSR Certificate to protect you against repossessions. You can buy a PPSR Certificate at www.carhistory.com.au.
