Buying any kind of car in U.A.E generally, and in Dubai specifically is considered a hassle for some due to its complicity, a joy for others for what they meet along the way, and a hunt for the majority, where you have your best buddy by your side and you're ready to take down manipulative salesmen who want to convince you to buy their "flawless cars".
Prepare your baskets because I am about to drop in some knowledge. Luckily, for you, you got me by your side to walk you through the steps of buying a new used car, and yet make you enjoy your "hunt".
DO YOUR RESEARCH
Never, ever walk into a dealership "just to see what they've got." Before heading to buy the car, you have to read up. It's like homework, and if you failed to prepare for it, then you're more likely preparing for failure. You have to have the mindset to what you're looking for, regarding the price, type and model in order to know better.
Maybe you would choose to go to the car dealers, or let them come to you by visiting http://www.carmudi.ae/ where you’ll find all types of vehicles you need and from trusted people and car dealers.
Maybe you would like choose a Toyota for its great mechanics, a Kia for its optimized fuel efficiency, or even a Chevy American muscle car for incredible engine power. This way you know where you're headed and your brain will automatically gray-out the unnecessary car options and make your built-in Search Engine Optimization pick what suits you best.
Here comes the good part, even if you know nothing about cars, don't pick the car, let the car pick you. Sounds strange? No, cause as much as you're part of it, it’s part of you. Just like falling in love from the first sight, you gaze upon the car of your dreams and begin inspecting it from every angle and flip the hood open to see the inner beauty, and once you feel confident enough, take the car to the experts car inspectors and let them play their role to show you the pros and cons of choosing a car.
Once you're inside the car, phase out; don't listen to anyone or anything but yourself and the car. Ask yourself, do I see myself driving this in the future? Test the car's gear, break, and acceleration responses, take the test to the limits to see its true potential, do not overdo it though, and remember that it is a used car, so there might be some minor problems, but as long as they are not major, it is nothing to worry about.
GOING BACK HOME
After picking your target and being satisfied with the offered price, be ready to debate to save as much Riyals as possible before you present your cash, so you can feel that this car hunt was worth it in terms of search, price and experience.
If you followed this guide to the letter, you'll find it easier to pick a used car from now on, stay away from the random Salesmen talk who wants nothing but your money, and listen to the sound of reason and the sound your engine's chosen car, and to avoid all the hassle visit the Carmudi website as that will enable customers to easily find or sell their car, motorcycle or commercial vehicle online.
