In the past, I’ve warned you about buying used cars “as-is” and pointed out how doing so can leave you without a remedy if the car is defective. But what about used cars sold with warranties? If those turn out to be lemons what can the buyers do?While most used cars sold in America are sold as-is, some used cars sold by dealers are sold with warranties. For the purposes of this discussion, I am not talking about late model cars which come with the remainders of the first owner’s new car factory warranty. I’m talking about a five-year-old three-owner car with 100,000 miles on the clock. Suppose you buy that car from a dealer who offers it with a 3-month/3,000 mile warranty. And it turns out to be defective. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below This is a call I get all too often. But the good news is that you are better off than the person who bought the same car as-is. First, the state Lemon Law will not apply because the car is not new and I don’t … [Read more...] about What Happens If Your Used Car Is a Lemon?
Car dealers are becoming quite adept at sneaking things into purchase documents, to the point where car buyers today have no idea that they signed away many of their legal rights – until it is too late. Here are the top five things most car buyers miss in the paperwork they sign when buying a car. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below Arbitration ClausesMany dealers are now slipping binding arbitration clauses into their purchase agreements. Do you later think that the dealer defrauded you? If so, you might not be able to sue them. You may have to file an arbitration claim with an organization hand-picked in advance by the car dealer. Guess whose side they are on?Shortened Statute of LimitationsMany car dealers are now taking advantage of a little known section of the Uniform Commercial Code that allows them to shorten the statute of limitations on any claims against them to one year. If you found out later that you had somehow been ripped off you’d better get to an … [Read more...] about Five Things Shady Car Dealers Try to Sneak on Used Car Buyers
The UK used car market remained buoyant in 2017, with a decline of just 1.1% across the year and 8.1 million cars changing hands. The apparent stability across the year was marred by a sharp 5.1% decline in the fourth quarter, in line with the 5.7% decline in new car sales across the year. The fourth-quarter results could be a forecast of things to come; the used car market is usually a few months behind the new market in responding to trends and changes. Automotive analyst Cap HPI recorded a drop in used car values of 1.1% in December, indicating greater stability in the market; values declined by 1.6% the previous December. Cap HPI Black Book senior editor James Dower said: “Historically, used car activity starts to improve after the Christmas period and values begin to strengthen. The used car market is likely to increase in volume due to the historic levels of new car registrations but, with the decline in new car … [Read more...] about Used car market remains strong as uncertainty looms
In its consultation meeting on January 18, the GST Council revised the prevailing rates on trade of used cars, which fell in the highest 28 percent tax slab and had almost derailed the organised pre-owned car industry in the country over the past six months.With implementation of the GST regime in India since July 2017, trade of used cars had been kept in the highest 28 percent (excluding cess) tax slab, similar to the tax levied on new cars. This effectively meant exponential rise in the amount of tax payable by registered dealers on used car sales as compared to the pre-GST scenario, where the tax stood significantly low and varied between 1-5 percent for most states and in some cases like Delhi, a 12.5 percent VAT was applicable on the difference between a dealer's cost of procuring (buying price - BP) of a second hand car and the invoiced selling price (SP) to its new customer.Along with the applicable tax being low, the methodology also differed from state to state … [Read more...] about 28 percent GST on used car trade slashed to less than half
“It’s good-looking, handles well and has accurate steering and a decent interior”: an Autocar road tester describing the Hyundai Coupe SIII 2.0 in 2007. A five-star car, then?Alas, no. He criticised the engine for being unwilling to rev but what really got his goat was the price: £17,236. See Hyundai Coupe for sale on PistonHeads Fortunately, the used car market has the answer to that little problem, as ‘One we found’ (right) shows. The 2007-reg Coupé 2.0 SIII in question is being offered for £2200 and, let’s face it, the seller is likely to accept £2000. That’s a bargain, even if Hyundai’s Click To Buy valuation service gives it an auction price of £1100.It’s a bargain because an SIII is still a good-looking car with a stack of kit, including leather, air-con, a sunroof and alloy wheels. Also, because it has been serviced regularly, and assuming there are no issues with the body … [Read more...] about Used car buying guide: Hyundai Coupe
Was it really 22 months ago that I first encountered the fleet-customers-only 2016 Chevrolet Malibu? Indeed it was — and although the rental companies were quick to take advantage of what was presumably an absolutely massive discount on the General’s leftovers, they have not been in a hurry to release their inventory of these cars into the auction lanes.That’s particularly true in the case of our local National Car Rental franchisee, which is actually a Chevrolet dealer in disguise. Which explains why Danger Girl’s final car rental of the year turned out to be a rather well-worn and thoroughly undistinguished example of the fleet-spec ‘Bu LTZ.Why review this car yet again? Simple. You’d never guess it, but my review of the rental-spec Chevrolet Captiva turned out to be one of the biggest articles in TTAC history. A lot of people who were looking at ex-rental Captivas in the used market ended up reading it and (one hopes) learning something about the … [Read more...] about 2016 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ Rental Review – Your Next Used Car?
If you think Lamborghini Gallardos are crazy, you want to meet their owners. Like the lurid shades many of the cars are famously painted in, there’s not a shrinking violet among them. See Lamborghini Gallardo for sale on PistonHeads The model attracts all sorts, from the track-day hero who roasts the car’s brakes to the vinyl fetishist who wraps it in ‘chrome’. It’s why you need to be extra vigilant when buying one, especially given how, when that bull mascot hoves into view, the heart can take over the head.A more sensible soul might pop to a Porsche showroom for that most rational of supercars, a 911 – a 2013- reg S PDK with barely 10,000 miles on the clock is yours for £75,000. The same money will just about buy the rare and sought-after manual Gallardo coupé, but it’ll be nine years older than the Porsche, have covered 32,000 miles and be powered by the less well regarded 493bhp 5.0-litre V10, not the much-improved … [Read more...] about Used car buying guide: Lamborghini Gallardo
Marion Caunter on Instagram. Using your mobile phone while driving? Don’t. Just don’t. Doing so not only endangers yourself, but other road users as well. Countless studies have been carried out on this subject, all with similar conclusions. Distracted driving, be it from being on the phone with someone or God forbid, texting, significantly increases the risk of getting into or causing a crash. Readers, drivers, please be aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Most drivers think that the act of talking on the phone is not such a big distraction, but the reality is, engaging in the visual-manual tasks (such as reaching for a phone, dialling and texting) associated with the use of mobile phones is the biggest offender. Volkswagen’s Eyes on the Road video below explains this very well. In Singapore, it is now illegal for a driver to use or hold any type of mobile device while the vehicle is on the move. Texting or making a call on a mobile phone has always been … [Read more...] about PSA: Do not use your mobile phones while driving
Using a mobile phone while behind the wheel of a vehicle is indeed dangerous and fool-hardy, besides being against the law. While talking on the mobile phone while driving is dangerous, it is even more so when drivers text, surf the internet or generally faff about on the phone while driving. In Singapore, this dash-cam footage shows that the traffic police in the island city-state mean business when drivers are caught using a mobile phone. As can be seen in the video, uploaded by Facebook user Adam Abdul Rashid, a traffic policeman on a motorcycle spies a driver on the phone, and pulls up along side. The policeman then confiscates the phone from the driver, placing it in the storage box behind him, before motioning the driver to pull up on the side of the road. According to the Singapore police force website, a person convicted of mobile communications device (MCD) driving as a first offence is liable to a fine of up to 1,000 SGD (RM3,100), or jailed for up to six months, or both. … [Read more...] about Singapore traffic police don’t mess around when it comes to using a mobile phone behind the wheel
