    Used cars bought from anywhere in the market need careful inspection. No matter how trustworthy your dealer may be, we strongly suggest you get your car inspected before you make the final deal.

    Buying from an owner might get you a better deal in terms of money but it will attract a lack of professionalism and hassles ahead. You need to go to the RTO for registration and other legal formalities which the dealership would have done for you if you would have bought from them. No doubt you will save on the costs but is it worth it? You decide!
