Buying Old Cars To Note What
Hello everyone, today the driver will bring you a content that we think will be very helpful in the upcoming Lunar New Year, with the current price of the car is probably not very suitable. With the income level of Vietnamese people, buying used cars I think is a fairly popular choice today, and now we will introduce you to simple and useful tips to discover a car model. How old is called quality?
First of all, I want to mention the exterior of the car, the front of the car is an area where there are frequent collisions and we can find out whether this model is used a lot. or not? Then does it have heavy collisions? The first point I want you to notice is that the ribs, the ridges like this, after the collision and the owner restores, it is often difficult to pull the veins back to their original form. like the original, besides the scratches or the areas that need to be covered with atit, need to repaint, the paint part will often be thicker than the adjacent areas, you can detect by looking closely, then the openings like this are also where the impact marks are quite obvious, after restoration often these gaps are no longer regular. , which means there will be places that are wider, but where the gap is narrower.
Next is the coupling parts, such as the car's light here, the car's light here as the model you are watching is probably the owner of the car has also repaired quite a lot and removed inserted many times, since this makes the head of this lamp no longer really matches the head of the car, it will have very wide gaps, in some places the gap is narrow, another area. I want you to care about is the front bumper of the car, the front bumper of the car where the collision is very frequent, and similar to the bonnet when the its face will no longer be regular, in addition to this front bumper is also the part that manufacturers often do not make it too hard, and so when we have a strong impact reinstall it there will be no more articulation, it will probably be rickety like this, so it is the model you are looking at here, the end of the front of the car, I want you to check the bodywork.
Similar to the front of the car, the body of the car also has ribs like this, these are the areas that leave the mark of the collision quite clear, in addition, if you pay attention to the slot. the door here after a serious collision, the car owner will often have to remove the door to ... to recover and after reinstalling often these slots will not be regular anymore, the front door slot, the rear door gap the gap , it is no longer the same width or above and below it is no longer the same, which is a sign that you can find this car may have been hit badly or used for a while. long time and need to take apart to fix. In addition, the body of the car you can also discover many other details on the inside of the car door, similarly, please check the ledges here, the embossed mark here. . After the road is restored, it will not be as sharp as the original, besides, an area that people often ignore when injecting, that's the inside of the door. hey, you can open it to check if the welds here are still original or not.
Another area where you can spot traces of repairs is the screws that hold the doors here, the ones that are closed here are painted the same color as the bodywork and if the car is affected. If the car is removed, the brain will lose its paint color and that is a sign to find out that this car has been repaired a lot, after the bodywork, we will go through the rear of the car.
Yes! while the rear end is also an area where you can check the same details as the front end, that's the gaps in the ridges or the joints here, that's where ... if the car had an accident or a lot of repairs would have left traces that were irregular gaps, no more sharp edges, no more original, paint parts could be thicker. the area next to it or the joints here are irregular, the entrance is wide or the space is narrow, the rear of the vehicle is now going to check the interior space of the car . The first thing when I check the interior I want to show you is let's park the car in the sun, remove the artificial scents like the essential oils here for example, after a while. close the door and wait for us to open the door and get in the car, when the cars are flooded or there are strange signs it will be very clearly displayed through the smell coming from the leather seats or from the car floor.
The second point is that we check the faces that are often subject to friction, such as the gear lever, the knobs or the control lever and the wipers here. are the areas where the model's age will show very clearly, as the model you see here, the owner of the car probably uses a lot of light control and therefore the plastic part here is more polished and the ones that have lost their original paint colors, besides, just like the model you are looking at, the gear lever part is probably over used and Therefore, the car owner has replaced a completely new gear lever, these are the signs for you to raise questions to an older model. In addition, the leather seats or the armrests here are also places that often rub and leave very clear signs, as the armrests here are very high gloss, proving that the model This car is also a high age, the leather seats have been completely changed, continuing a suspicious sign about the car's age.
Next, I want you to check out the floor and the underbody of the seats, these are the places where when the car is flooded or the car has a high age will also show very clearly, with the car floor, they we have to skip the second floor that the owner has installed and need to lift the plastic from this tank and check the original floor, the original floor here is felt and from here they Can we discover whether this model is flooded or not? Has it been rusty or not, is the metal part under the floor of the car or is it felt here? Those are signs of flooding and have been repaired. Besides, under the seat here is also a place where the flooded cars show quite clearly.
The armrests here are not made by manufacturers so that it can withstand the weather and therefore any model that has been submerged will have rusted under the seats. . After checking for such interior parts, now we can go through a little inspection in the engine compartment and proceed to run a simple test, with the engine compartment, the first thing I want to mention That is, you carefully check the engine part, the engine will show the age of the car through the details of metal whether it has been rusty, has it been discolored? ?
Has it darkened yet? Also, like the engine you can see here, the engine is quite problematic since it has the moisture of running oil, this is a sign that the engine is no longer good. In addition, in the engine compartment, you can easily see the welding welds of the manufacturer, which are the welding that private production facilities will not be able to repeat when the car collides. If the impact has been affected by the engine cavity, the parts of this weld will be no longer beautiful, it will not be as intact as it was.
Of course, when we open the engine compartment cover, you should also start the engine to hear whether the engine is in the state of gallons whether it is even or not? So when we throttle the engine, how does it react? Is it smooth or not? Let's try it right now, as you can also hear it is the engine start, the engine is old just like the car when we start to witness it as soon as it starts. here it has shown an anomaly, the "squeaky" sound just now that could be emitted from the cords that signaled that the engine was already old, besides that during the test We should also step on the gas pedal to see if the engine sounds evenly, and then when the gas comes down, will be out of breath? There are simple signs that help people can detect whether this engine block has ... had serious problems or not? Then whether we buy this car and have to bring it to maintenance, costly with it or not? Of course, after checking through the details like before, it is indispensable that we will need to run, to check the performance of the gearbox or the ability of the steering wheel. details, other scrubs in the car.
Let me discover now, a test drive is very important in the process of finding a good old model, you should operate the car at all levels to ensure that the gearbox is slippery. howl, it's smoother, because usually when we try an old car, users will often have a habit of just checking at a short distance, then running at low speed, not using up all the levels number.
In addition, in the process of using the car we will also be able to know whether the car's steering wheel is still ... still strong enough, still accurate enough or not? As for the model I am testing right now, maybe my age is already quite high, making it very dirty, similar to what I have previously tested a model, we can shake the steering wheel like this and the car is still going straight, without changing direction, besides that during our test drive, we should also check all the other details, other contents such as are lights, for example, or is the air conditioner here considered to be in good working condition? Does it cause gas bursting phenomenon? Can cause coincidence….
Duplicate the engine down or not? Other details such as plastic or mirrors and buttons ... etc ... in the car, it's easy to show its longevity when we go to bad roads, to check that, I encourage you to go on the roads ... brick roads or concrete roads then make the bends at a relatively high speed so that these plastic details show it more clearly, the creaking sounds of the old interior will be more clearly visible.
