Top Items to Fix Before Selling A Car
Here are a few items you can fix to help get the most value out of a car resale.
Foggy headlamps and burnt out lights– Foggy headlights are easy to fix and cleaning the headlamps will give your car a fresher look. Make sure to check all your lights and replace any bulbs that have gone out. Most buyers will test out a car’s headlights, brake lights and turn signals.
Tires— To get a sense of overall wear and tear, buyers may look at your car’s tires. Worn out tires are one of the easiest things to spot and could lower the value of your car. If your treads are worn or uneven, it may be best to replace them with matching used tires.
Top off the fluids – Be sure to check and top off your oil, radiator, brake fluid, transmission fluid and windshield-washer reservoir.
Wiper blades - Make sure your wiper blades are in good condition. If they are cracked or dried out, replace them with a pair of inexpensive wipers.
Brakes - Worn brakes are expected on any used car but if brakes are heavily worn, and will make a grinding noise as you come to a stop, this will need to be replaced.
Windows – Make sure your car’s power windows are in working condition as this will be one of the more common things a potential buyer will check.
Perform an Oil Change - Even if it isn’t due for a few thousand miles, it’s best to perform an oil change on a car you’re planning to sell so that potential buyers will see clean oil in the engine if they decide to check. Keep a receipt of the oil change to prove maintenance was completed.
