How to choose good used Cars

A person who is rich can easily change cars in just a short period of time, but of course how many are they in this world? Average people especially in the 3rd world countries often change their cars minimum of 5 years and maximum of 2 decades depending on the financial capacity of the person and the life span of the car.

Because of this habit, people develop the sentimental sense and as the car ages they often find it hard to sell for two reasons:

1. The car has a very low value which a smart buyer would not take the risk on wasting his time finding obsolete spare parts for the car.

2. Sentimental value is another hinder to which a person finds it hard to let go of the vehicle. Funny,sad,romantic and sometimes tragic memories or moments linger to the leather seats of the car which when at the precise moment a person tries to sell, it all comes back to them and begins to whisper.
