There are many benefits to buying a secondhand car including cost-friendly prices, less vehicle depreciation, and a faster loan pay-off. But one challenge that secondhand buyers face is that buying used means that you might have to conduct a more thorough evaluation of the car that you’re eying compared to if you were to buy brand new. With information being as readily available and accessible as it is today though, making an informed decision has never been easier. 

In the infographic is a checklist of what to look out for when buying a secondhand car, regardless if it’s being purchased from an independent trader, an approved main dealer, or even privately. From thoroughly checking the car across all fronts to taking it out on a test drive, this used car checklist gives secondhand buyers a quick overview of all the bases they need to cover.
