rolls royce in dubai

UAE is an automotive haven where there is always a tempting deal awaiting everyone. It’s a place that lets even those on a diminutive budget, purchase wheels that command a terrific snob and aspirational value by providing them access to an umpteen variety of cars from used car dealers and private sellers who regularly list second hand cars for sale in the UAE.

However, as rosy as it may appear, the process to select and finally striking a deal which quenches the thirst of both the opposites, head and heart is an operose. A major reason behind this is that luxury cars are extremely intricate machines that need to be inspected by someone with hawk eyes so that the dream of owning one doesn’t transform into a nightmare once it migrates to its new owner.
Here’s a checklist for all those looking to buy a luxury second hand or pre-owned car in the UAE.

  • RESEARCH ABOUT THE CAR

If you’ve set out to purchase a luxury used car in Dubai, chances are you’d have given it a brief thought on the model that etches you and brings about a grin on your face. It is crucial to research about the car’s various aspects such as reliability rating, production years, spare parts availability, common problems faced by other consumers and an average estimate of the value that a decently maintained car would procure.
Luxury cars usually suffer from electrical or mechanical problems, and hence, should be meticulously dabbled with for peace of mind in the future.



  • TEST DRIVE THE VEHICLE

A conspicuous task to perform is taking the vehicle for a comprehensive test drive on serpentine roads, bumpy asphalt, rough terrains and freeway. Such tests will allow to effectively appraise the car’s suspension and bushes, chassis, gearbox shifting, braking and engine’s efficiency. Do note if any eerie sounds are produced from the suspension, while braking, rapidly changing gears, under hard acceleration or from the interior trims when moving with normal gait.

  • EXPERIENCE MOST OF ITS BELLS AND WHISTLES

Luxury cars are bound to come laden with comfort features to pamper its occupants. The more expensive these exotic machines are, the more nannies they would be loaded with. However, consensus has it that these features, operated using sensors tend to give up after a few years. Hence, features such as massage function, ambient lighting, sunroof opening and closing mechanism, electric recline for the seats, sunshade and keys on the dashboard to access menus should be tried.
It is for these features that people give predilection to luxury cars when buying a used car over mainstream ones. So if these gadgets are out of order, the car will automatically vilipend in its value.

  • PAY HEED TO THE CAR’S DOCUMENTS

Special attention must be imparted on the car’s documents such as accident history, service history and so on. This will unfurl, not just whether the car has been involved in any serious accident, but also if it has been maintained gingerly.
Poorly maintained cars are easy to recognize from their profusion of faults but many times, accidental cars are atoned to their original shape to launder explosive amounts of money from innocent buyers. In this case, the picture may seem beautiful but often remains reticent in revealing vital details. So beware!

  • TAKE THE CAR TO YOUR TRUSTED MECHANIC

Our vision only extends till the tip of the iceberg, not beyond it. The examination which an experienced mechanic will be able to carry out, simply won’t be our cup of tea. Hence, it is recommended to take the 2nd hand car for sale to a mechanic, you have utmost fidelity for.
Once he connects the car to his devices to rummage for faults, an exacting post-mortem report can be acquired. The device will provide a substantial picture of mechanical and electrical flaws and will strengthen your inkling towards reaching a desirable conclusion.

  • ASK THE OWNER THE REASON TO SELL

While many owners don’t provide the exact reason behind putting their car up for sale, if he’s believed to be genuine, this question should be asked. If his response is logical and satisfactory, there shouldn’t be much reason to relinquish the purchase. However, if from his expressions, tone or answer, if there arises a certain magnitude of apprehension, it is advisable to refusing the purchase using a diplomatic language.
If the used car in Dubai is in acceptable condition, the outgoing owner is likely to remark, ‘I am looking to upgrade,’ ‘I am migrating’ or simply would want to make a distress sale. Such conditions are normal. 

In a nutshell, the life of a luxury car owner can be a two-edged sword. On one, lies the sublime experience of something extraordinary that dares to stand out in a crowd and gives a feeling of utmost gratification, while on the other, lies the struggle to earn its overwhelming upkeep costs and being constantly wary of components breaking down anytime.
However, most luxury car purchase decisions are driven by emotions than by reasoning self and when it is the maiden attempt of owning one, the seesaw would certainly tilt towards the purchase side.
