Easy Tips to Buy Subaru Car



Subaru vehicles have always been unique, and the modern lineup is no exception. These capable all-wheel-drive cars are excellent candidates for drag racing, auto crossing and rally racing. Its versatility, along with their unique styling and practicality makes Subaru so popular. But sometimes, people choose the wrong vehicle without checking its functions and features which causes future issues.

To avoid frustration, remember to ask questions when you call before viewing. Also, go through the current values of the model you’re interested in or the price guide booklets available to the public. After getting the stuff, follow the below points and make your purchase a wise investment.

Schedule a visit: If you like the model displayed online, make a visit. Believe me, it is going to be worth travelling to view the car. You can find two things; either the car in better condition than expected or a car in worst condition.

Check the Seller: Find out if the car is being sold by its owner or by a trader. It is better if the seller is the owner because he might have all the history whereas a dealer may have more limited knowledge of a car’s history. But a dealer may offer warranty/guarantee and finance.

Ask the reason for sale: Do make it one of the first questions. Why the car is being sold and how long has it been with the current owner?

Conditions: Ask for an honest appraisal of the car’s condition. Your inspection should include the following:

On the initial examination, check that the paintwork is glossy and consistent. If you found any irregularities go for another car. Irregularities may reflect some level of repair work, a poor re-spray or both, so check the paperwork. On the whole, there should be little or no evidence of rust. Also find out any odds or excessive panel gaps, overspray on other areas of the bodywork and marks under the paintwork. If there is obvious signs of repair, then make sure the documentation matches the explanation. If in doubt, walk away.

Now it’s time to check the interior. While talking about interior, I must mention to check the gearbox. Subaru gearbox should be in good condition. If there is any fault, ask the dealer to replace it. Gearbox is the main part of a Subaru car. Then switch to seat, look for wear and tear and any sagging. Similarly, check the foot well carpets, door trims, gear knobs, pedals and seat belt tension. Also expect to find different steering wheels, gear knobs and an array of gauges on the dash or the pillar. Also make sure they have been properly installed.

Paperwork/ownership: Get the full Subaru service history that proves the car has received the necessary mechanical examination at the requisite times. Examine the service book and receipts to ensure that servicing has been maintained. The car’s identification number is stamped onto a plate located in the engine bay. Make sure the VIN number displayed matches the number on the registration document.

Check all the above things and select the car that suits your needs and personality.
