20130126_122654 (Medium)Buying a used car can save you a lot but one must be really careful when deciding to buy a used car otherwise it would turn into a nightmare, it’s like hunting for a fresh fish in a big sea of fishes and there are many things to consider such as the car year of manufacture (newer is better), distance drove in KM (mileage, less KMs is better), car place of purchase (locally, GCC, or somewhere else?), exterior body condition (any dents or accidents?), interior condition, engine performance, warranty still valid or expired, and of course price. Recall I told you I was looking for a used car at Al Rai area the other day, I saw there was a new big center selling used car called CarMax, I think total area was over 4,000 sq.m so I decided to have a look inside and see if they got any attractive deals.

20130126_123050 (Medium)Inside it looked like a supermarket for used cars, there were several car brands and models but mostly American and Japanese and some European, I noted they classified cars based on buyers budget. Some cars seemed to be in good condition but some looked relatively old, I checked the prices but I’m not sure if they are the best because I didn’t compare with other places yet. I’m considering either a German or Japanese car-makers preferably SUV but I’m not in a hurry so I’ll take my time to hunt for a hot deal. Those who are considering to buy used cars must also make sure to have them inspected/checked from a trusted place such as the official car dealers, I also heard Al Remal Al Thahabiya at Al Rai area is a good place. So questions are, which places do you recommend for buying used cars in Kuwait? Online like Q8Car or Q8Showroom? Haraj? and what are the most important factors to consider in your opinion.

    Q8car online is a good place to find the right car for you and also people prefer places like sahala and aayan but I would suggest Q8car or take a look at mustafa karam also… Btw whats your budget?

    • El Toro says:

      Thanks Tuan my budget around 8,000 – 12,000 dinar and I’m seeking SUV.

      • Tuan says:

        I would suggest an Audi Q7 or an Escalade as I am not sure if you would like Tahoe`s… You can get an Audi Q7 (2009) for about 9000Kd Or an Escalade (2008) for about 9500Kd. Check out Q8Car!
        But remember for your budget, you get get a brand new Tahoe.
        Good Luck in finding a vehicle….

    Hi a friend of mine is looking for a used car. He has limited budget and he cant be able to pay cash, he can give around 40-50% DP and the rest will be installment. Is there any used car dealers who have this mode of payment. Let me know. Thanks

    • Tazmania says:

      I think Aayan used car dealers use this was, but usually when buying a used car people pay the down payment then use one of the facilitating companies (such as banks and Commercial Facilities Company) to pay for the rest of the amount, then the outstanding amount is paid via monthly installments usually over 2,3,4 or 5 years.

    there is an app from PM called usedcar car checklist, ITS AMAZING. Also there are many instagram profile that are specifically for used cars.
    Tip: NEVER buy a used car from a dealership that stores it outside.

    What also existed then was the electronic ignition system. but it was inside a plain box whose contents most people do not know. Electronic ignition gave off better spars and was almost maintenance free. But such was only found in higher end cars and were generally not present in most compact cars.,
