Remember, if the car has restrictions on registration activity or is wanted, then it will not be put on the account in traffic police, — says Alexander Vasiliev, head of service history check car

My friend specially went to the neighboring Chelyabinsk to buy a second-hand Mazda 6 for a lower price than in our city. Came to the traffic police to put the car on the account, and she was taken to the impound lot. The car was in custody and the other could do nothing. Lost money and transport, — says Roman Neustroev from Yekaterinburg.

Car-drowned, and after the fire

I would not have bought the car after the fire and after she sank. If there is a short circuit in the wiring in the car, the burning smell will be difficult to derive and this problem is periodically to remind myself. After full or partial immersion in water, the car will be unpleasant smell of slime and algae that is hard to withdraw, says Artem Egorov, replaced for your driving experience over 30 used cars.

Cars with technical faults

The most costly damage — box and engine. The first manifest themselves in the form of kicks and jerks, and the second noise and knocking in the engine. If the seller says that the transmission “kicked” because it had not changed the oil, and the engine is knocking because it is “as it should be,” from such a machine should be abandoned.

Car that owner does not sell

But there have been cases when people before buying we checked the car and found the data about the hijacking. One of the latest reports in our database — history Mercedes—Benz ML350 2012.

A car with more than 6 owners

The car is a long — term acquisition, and, if the new owner gets rid of it in a short time, perhaps the machine has a serious problem.

— In my memory, the largest number of owners in the database were on the car Volkswagen Passat 1998, — says Alexander Vasiliev, the First owner owned it for 16 years, 10 months, and 42 were changed every 10, 5 or even every 2 days.

Chinese car loses in value from the moment he was outside the gates of the dealership, says Nikita Orlov — Stock of their durability lasts for a maximum of three years.
