-Check the engine plate on the car corresponds with that given on the registration documents and that it has not been tampered with or changed.
-Never buy a car without test driving is yourself.
-Always inspect the bodywork in good light. Look for corrosion or rust. Look for rust at the top and rear of the front wings, along the side sills, below front and rear bumpers and the bottoms of the doors.
- Check the odometer, if the numbers are out of line the mileage may have been altered. Look to see if the mileage corresponds with the general condition of the car. A worn brake pedal and wear marks on the gear lever indicate a car that might have done more than 60,000 miles. A worn or sagging driver's seat and carpet are other signs of high mileage.

Any more tips from your side?
