The emirate is known to be housing some of the grandest and most luxurious items. Ranging from grand resorts, ultra-luxury apartments and penthouses, villas that resemble miniature castles, and most of all, exotic and luxury cars.
Dubai is nothing if not famous for having sports cars on its street almost everywhere at any given time. Since you can buy almost any make and model at a discounted rate, you’re spoilt for choice. The trick is not to buy a new one as they’ll be very expensive. Going for used cars for sale in the UAE though will definitely take almost half the price off. Besides, how many times have you gone up to anyone standing next to a sports car and asked them if it’s brand new? Exactly. No one knows and no one can.
So, how do you verify a secondhand car for sale? There’s much to know but to help you get started, here are a few things you should check:
Check the Engine
From the number of miles that the car has driven to the fluids of the engine, you need to check everything. The engine is the main component of the car and while everything can be replaced with new equipment, you can’t easily change the whole engine. At least not without it costing you a ton of money. Moreover, since everyone usually resells their car after a while, you’d want yours to have a running engine to get a good value.
The first thing you’ll notice in a car is the exterior. All supercars tend to have this overwhelming effect on people but you need to brush it off. Look at the car as you would any other normal vehicle and check for any damages. Whether the car has dents, scratches, combinations of both, or any other sign of wear and tear, it’s all going to affect its overall cost. As long as the damages are easily repairable and won’t lead to the body succumbing to rust, the car is good. Just make sure that the ride doesn’t need a paint job.
Just because you’re the only one who’s going to be sitting in the car doesn’t mean that you can compromise on the interior. From multimedia controls, condition of the leather seats, the sound system, gearbox, and steering wheel to the air conditioner, make sure to check everything inside the car to avoid maintenance issues from spurring up. Bottom line is, you can’t have a car that will require maintenance costs in the first year.
The Fluids and Tires
Check all the fluids of the car you intend to buy. Depending upon the car, you’ll have to check the engine oil, coolant levels, brake fluids, etc. While it may not cost much to have them replaced or refilled, it’s best that you know their condition beforehand. The last thing you want is to take your ride out and land yourself in trouble. The same can happen if your car has worn-out or damaged tires. From road traction, grip, alignment to even the mileage of the car; everything is affected by the condition of your car’s tires.
So, now that you know a little bit about buying used cars in Dubai, you should start checking out showrooms. Get professional help from mechanics if you need certified opinions.
