Tips on buying a used car

1️⃣ Set a budget & research

In this age where all information is at our fingertips, you can easily do a research on your dream car. At the same time, you can also set a budget according to your financial feasibility for the car you are intending to purchase.

2️⃣ Decide between a PARF or COE car

You’ll need to know the difference between a PARF car and a COE car. A PARF car is aged 10 years old and below and is usually eligible for both COE and PARF rebates upon deregistration. A COE car refers to car that has renewed its COE. You will only get the COE rebate when de-registering.

3️⃣ Check the car thoroughly

Always insist on doing a test drive of your chosen car. In this way, you will be able to get a better sense of the cars’ overall condition.

4️⃣ Check interior and exterior condition of the car

Request for the car to be checked at a workshop of your choice. A pre-purchase vehicle inspection is not mandatory, but it will help in assuring you of the car’s condition before you make a commitment.

5️⃣ Decide In-house vs Bank loan

Before you begin your application, you must verify your car loan eligibility, have a good credit score and prepare the documents you’ll require. Remember to also check and compare interest rates and loan tenures to find out which loan is more suitable for you.
