What’s the right used car for you?
Deciding which vehicle you should buy will depend on your needs, your budget and personal preferences. Consider which features are necessities, and which are luxuries. Evaluate a car’s make/model, price, fuel economy, safety rating, size, driving experience and resale value.
What’s the car worth?
Not sure if the car you’re interested in is priced fairly? Though there are many factors that can influence the value of a car – accident history, maintenance, weather damage – using the Mahboob Traders can help you find the average selling price of similar vehicles in your area, giving you an idea of where to start.
How do you perform a proper test drive?
A 30-minute test drive is essential to evaluate how a car runs in a realistic setting. Plan a familiar route and test actions you would typically do; hit the brakes, put it in park, take a corner, accelerate, merge and change lanes. Get a feel for the car’s accessories and ensure they work.
Why is a pre-purchase inspection so important?
A pre-purchase inspection is essential to determine the cosmetic, mechanical and safety condition of a car. A mechanic can help pinpoint any existing conditions as well as highlight potential future issues. This information is critical and can help provide negotiation leverage.
How do you find out the history of a car?
A Mehboob Traders History Report provides you with important information that’s critical to understand when buying a used car. Most importantly, it uncovers whether the vehicle you’re interested in has been in an accident and whether there’s a lien registered against the vehicle.

What to ask before buying your next car
Take the intimidation factor out of buying a used car by asking the right questions. Ask why they are selling the car, if it’s had regular service and maintenance and if it’s still under warranty.
How to successfully negotiate a used vehicle purchase
Before you negotiate, make sure you know the vehicle’s Value Range, and educate yourself on the other factors that impact a vehicle’s value. This will help you make a confident offer based on your research and budget. Keep your emotions in check and be prepared to walk away – a successful agreement will benefit both parties.
How to get the right car insurance
Upgrading your used car is a great time to reassess your insurance needs and make sure you’re getting the right coverage. You’ll need to update your insurance before finalizing the sale, so shop around and see what’s out there in terms of prices what your premiums will cover. There are lots of great discount programs out there too.
How do you finalize a used car sale?
Each province has different regulations for finalizing the sale of a used car. We’ve compiled the steps and information that you need to know, as well as provided links to the appropriate websites. When in doubt, contact your provincial government to ensure you and the seller have covered your bases.
