Buying a used car is supposed to be a simple and straightforward affair, but it can be otherwise. If you’re lucky, you’ll come across a problem-free used vehicle that hasn’t been tampered with, but a lot of the time, that’s usually not the case.
Unless you are absolutely sure what you are looking for, there are many pitfalls for the used car buyer. Usually this involves being unable to spot red flags, problems or potential problems, most of which may be hidden in plain sight.
Take, for example, vehicles damaged by flooding. Given the high frequency of these due to the wave of flash floods lately, a major concern for many buyers when buying a used car is whether the unit that ‘they are considering is free from such damage. After all, repairs can hide this from the average person, enough that they can’t tell.
This is where buying a used car from a reputable and trusted dealer who can certify that the condition of the car is free from such damage makes all the difference, as it eliminates any guesswork and, more importantly, worries.
MyTukar is one of those companies promising to have zero flood-damaged cars in their inventory. It uses rigorous checks and processes to ensure that vehicles sold under the company’s banner have not been involved in flooding.
This involves a rigorous 160-point inspection, from understanding the car’s complete history to inspecting every nook and cranny under the bonnet – nothing is left undone to ensure that all cars are free of major accidents and floods, so you get a quality ride.
The extensive 160-point inspection includes engine, steering, brakes and suspension, transmission and clutch, exterior and interior, and underbody and hood checks . If any corrections or repairs are needed, the necessary is carried out by myTukar’s refurbishment center, which ensures that the repair and replacement of parts are carried out correctly to make the car look like new.
The state-of-the-art refurbishment center carries out rigorous and detailed work inside and out, including body and paint correction and detailing and hygiene processes, in accordance to “myTukar Certified Pre-Owned” standards. Upon completion, this gives the vehicle a myTukar certified badge.
Another known problem practiced by used car dealerships is mileage falsification, which a buyer will not be able to verify. Here, myTukar stands out by openly stating that the cars it sells all show original mileage. The company guarantees that all mileages of its myTukar-certified cars are not tampered with, meaning what you see on the odometer is what the car actually recorded.
Additionally, the company provides greater peace of mind to buyers by backing every vehicle it sells with a free warranty and service, which sets it apart from other used car dealerships. Used cars are often sold “as is”, usually without warranty or after-sales service.
However, all myTukar certified cars come with an extended one-year warranty that covers both engine and gearbox, plus 2X free service. Standard with every car sold, this provides peace of mind to customers and makes their car ownership hassle-free, as the car’s maintenance cycle and the hassles that come with it are taken care of by myTukar.
Along with all these cutting-edge features, the company also offers a five-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee policy if you’re not happy with your purchase. All this makes buying a vehicle from the brand absolutely worry-free.
