Know the Purpose
The very first thing is to be clear on why you want a car. Is it just for making your city commuting convenient or you want it as a second car or you are looking forward to trips during the weekends etc. Once you are clear on the purpose of owning it, you can narrow down your choices appropriately.
Certified or Non-Certified
If you want complete peace of mind when buying a used vehicle in a new city, CPO vehicles are always the best choice. Buying from strangers and non-certified dealers have chances of getting fleeced. The CPO vehicles are slightly pricey than their non-certified counterparts, but then you can be sure of the quality as they pass through stringent tests before deemed worthy of selling. So, the deal for used Mahindra XUV500 in Bangalore will cost slightly more if it is certified, but you can be certain that it won’t pose any problem for you in near future.
Buy at the Best Time
If you are not in a hurry to buy the car, always wait for that perfect time to get the best deal. The dealers have quarterly targets when they need to shift cars and as such, they are ready for better negotiations and offer lucrative finance packages. Try to close a deal in the last week of March, June, September, and December.
These tips will help you pocket the best deals.
