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.
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.
