    • I have never driven automat and I never will. It seems so boring and easy. It's something for girls. Real men drive stick only. 
    • What other hobbies and interests do you have, besides cars? 

      My favorite pass time activities/hobbies are reading, doing sports whenever I have some free time, like playing soccer, basketball and ping-pong.
    • How did you find this forum? Was it through google search, my profile at Ipb, through the word of mouth or some other way?
    • How tech savvy are you about cars? At first, when I started to drive I knew nothing at all. But after a while I thought that it would be better if I started to learn a thing or 2. I asked my father, who is a pretty tech savvy when it comes to cars and I learned the basics such as read a dipstick and changing the oil, changing a flat tyre, jump starting my car, measuring and setting the correct tyre pressure, buff out minor scratches and other minor stuff of that nature.
       
    • Feb 27, 2018, 04:53 pm 1. Choosing the right car.

      Always research first so you can buy the car that best suits your needs and your budget.

      2. Protect yourself.

      Shop around as many dealers as possible. It is risky to buy from an unlicensed dealer or a private seller. They are unregulated and there is little legal protection in the event of a problem. 

      3. Check the car. 

      Walk around the car. Check for scratches, rust, missing pieces, etc. Look inside the car as well and make sure that everything is working properly.

      4. Test drive.

      Don't do more than the most perfunctory test drive, be that for a new or used car. While driving the car, pay attention to things like how the steering feels in your hands, how the vehicle feels as it's turning and how the brakes respond. Does it make strange noises? And things of that nature. Make a note of anything that you notice.

      5. Negotiate.

      After you have found the right car, do not be afraid to negotiate the price.

      6. Get an independent inspection.

      Always have a used car inspected by a qualified mechanic before you buy it. Most importantly don't accept the car unless you are satisfied with its condition.

      7. Check your contract.

      Never sign an incomplete contract. Always read and be sure you understand it before signing. Also be sure it is the car you want, can afford and that it is in  a condition you will accept. 


      Do you know any other tips for buying a new car? Please do share them.
