How to Choose a Good Used Car

Most people eventually decide that it would be wonderful to purchase a car or trade in their current vehicle for something newer or more suitable. Of course, purchasing an automobile is a very personal decision that is influenced by a variety of factors. We shall make an effort to offer some broad guidance in the hopes that it may simplify this task.

The best way to try this or that car is to rent it. By renting a car of the same model that you want to buy, you will be able to get acquainted with all the nuances, pluses, and minuses of this car. Also, rental companies can give you the opportunity to drive the best cars from around the world. It will be very easy for you to rent a lamborghini in Dubai. Yes, the Lamborghini is one of the most expensive cars in the world, but you can even rent a Lamborghini Gallardo. A huge car rental company’s fleet will allow you to choose exactly the right car for hire and don’t pay a lot of money.


What should be the dimensions of your car?

Obviously, it should not be too long. If you live in a city, then maneuvering in traffic is more convenient and easier in a small car. 

For citizens who rarely travel outside the city and use the trunk a little, a hatchback is recommended. This is a compact, maneuverable car, which is easier to park in a narrow courtyard, and in a low price.

Sedan cars are good both in the city and on the highway, thanks to a long base, but they do not tolerate bad roads very well, due to low ground clearance and soft suspension.

If you have a large family, and you often have to carry several people with luggage, you should look towards station wagons.

Automatic transmission or manual transmission?

An automatic transmission will surely be more practical for you on city streets with heavy traffic, traffic congestion, and traffic lights at every intersection. True, it won’t be simple to rebuild if you go to manual in the future. There are several reasons why a handbook is chosen. It is first thought to be more dependable than an automatic machine. Second, it enables you to “rock” the vehicle when it becomes immobilized in mud or snow. Thirdly, a car with a manual transmission uses somewhat less fuel.

Engine capacity

Which engine size to choose is a simple question. If you drive around the city more often, it is better to take a small one, 1.2-1.6 liters, anyway, most of the time you are stuck in traffic jams. If you often have to drive on country roads, you can take 1.8-2.5 liters, power will come in handy when overtaking, and in a driving mode without frequent acceleration and deceleration, fuel consumption will not be very expensive, besides, the resource of an engine with a larger volume is greater.

Car propulsion selection

Choose rear or front wheel drive. Of course, with little experience it is better to take a car with front or all-wheel drive, they are easier to manage on a bad road, if not taken to extremes, and getting out of a snow or mud captivity is much easier.

Сar brand

As for a particular brand of car … there are a lot of manufacturers, each is bad in some ways, good in some ways, there is no universal advice here.

The Japanese are reliable, but in inexpensive trim levels, they often suffer from cheap interior plastic.

The Germans are expensive and comfortable, but they like to be well looked after and do not forgive poor maintenance and spare parts.

The French differ in design both internal and external, but sometimes they suffer from the reliability of suspensions and automatic transmissions.

In general, choose for yourself what is closer to you – to drive a plastic toy and not stand out among hundreds of the same ones in your city, or to drive a live, but much richer and more pleasant car.
