BEFORE BUYING A CAR

5 things you should do before making a downpayment on a car

1 Price

If the price is too good to be true, it probably is. Car dealers TNP spoke to said the prices of cars are at most $3,000 cheaper than the market average.

2 ACCREDITATION

Some car dealers are members of the Singapore Vehicle Traders Association, which does its own background checks. Such associations ensure that dealers are credible.

3 LOCATION

Car dealers in car malls are safer, according to dealers TNP spoke to. This is because background checks are conducted on them before they can rent a shop at these locations.

4 BRANDING AND ESTABLISHMENT

A dealer who has been in the market for a long time will be better able to deliver. He would also have a large customer base, so there is little reason for him not to.

5 REVIEWS

If a dealer has yet to deliver a single car, it is best to wait. Online reviews will show the quality of service and product.
