How You Can Make Sure You Get the Right Car

When looking at buying a second hand car it is very much a case of caveat emptor - Let the buyer beware! There are certainly some things that you should always do though in order to make sure that you end up with a genuine and suitable motor.

Firstly, and this may seem obvious, make sure that you give the car a really good test drive and that you are completely happy with not only the way that the car handles, but also that you feel comfortable driving it. Make sure that when adjusted for you, the driving position gives you a good clear view of everything around you and that you are happy and confident driving the car. Although this does sound blindingly obvious it is one of the most important things. After all, you don't want to end up with a car that you don't enjoy driving or struggle to control. You'd be amazed at how many people have regret buying a car later because they didn't spend long enough in the initial stages checking that they were happy driving it and that it suited their needs.

When test driving the vehicle also take the opportunity to check out all of the electrical systems - sunroof and so on.

You need to not only make sure that you are happy with the way that the car drives, but that it is actually suitable for any particular needs that you have too. For example, if you have young children, will a pushchair fit in the boot and does the child's car seat fit properly? If you need a car with a good deal of storage space, does it offer this? Will the rear seats fold to allow you to carry more luggage, for example?

Secondly, take the time to check all of the paperwork very carefully and don't feel rushed doing this.

This paperwork includes the V5C registration document which should show that the person selling the car is the named legal owner. You should also ask to view the service history that should show how regularly the car has been maintained and whether major services have been carried out which might include changing things like the cam belt/timing belt. The service history should also give you a general indication about how well maintained the car has been.

You should also try to ensure that the handbook is present and that keycodes for any audio system or alarm system are provided, if possible, as this too can save you a lot of hassle and possible expense further down the line.

Following these tips along with some of common sense will help ensure that buying a used car is pain free.

Perhaps the best tip of all is to remember that if something appears too good (ie. cheap) to be true, then it almost certainly is!

What kind of tools do modern mechanics use to help them do their job

There's certainly no doubt that with the proliferation of electronic control units in vehicles nowadays a mechanic's job has evolved into something far more complex than it ever was when cars and trucks were much simpler pieces of machinery. A variety of systems in a modern vehicle might make use of one of these computers or ECU's. These include powertrain and power steering.

Some modern cars, coaches and trucks have up to around 80 ECUs. To enable him to do his job fully a mechanic therefore now needs to use diagnostic tools that can communicate with the embedded computer units and diagnose any possble faults so that the mechanic knows what needs to be worked on.

So, as you can see, the old image that you have of a mechanic is very much out of date. It is no longer a job for someone who is just quite handy with a spanner, but now requires at least some understanding of computerised technology and how to use vehicle diagnostics tools.
