Buy a second-hand car? The 10 things to keep in mind

Category : Uncategorized

What to consider before buying an old car?

  1. Decide which car to buy. Here are some things to know from the car dealer. For example, how many years has the car been used, when the car was built, and now how the mileage is being provided means that a liter of fuel goes the way.
  2. Keep your budget in mind when choosing a car. At the same time, you need to calculate the amount of fuel per kilometer you can use when using a car. That is, the budget is not just a car, but also a car expense after buying.
  3. You also need to know the current price of the car you have chosen. If you walk around a few showrooms, you will understand the market prices. You can also go to the second-hand car showroom.
  4. However, it is better to buy directly from the user than the old car showroom. Bought from someone better known. Because, in this case, it is possible to know exactly how he used the car.
  5. Now take a good look and find out if there is any fault with the car. Whether there is a broken or scratched spot on the outside or inside. Find out why.
  6. It is important to know why the car is being sold, whether it has caused an accident or not. It is best to seek the help of a known mechanic to determine if there is a problem with the vehicle.
  7. Before buying a car, you must test-drive it. While driving, be aware that any unusual sounds are heard. Even at this time, a partner should be kept who is aware of car.
  8. Check the car’s papers. Find out how long the tax is credited. Find out if the vehicle has an accident-related case and the owner or driver has a history of crime. Never buy papers if insurance, pollution control etc are not right.
  9. Know the safety and security of the car you are about to buy. If an older model car is going to buy, know if their car parts are available in the spare parts market, you should also find out.
  10. If you buy a car from the dealer, seek at least one year warranty. And if you have any doubts about the car’s license, contact the BRTA office to find out.

Government car is being wasted under the sky in Sreepur

In Sreepur’s cotton research, training and seed extension farm in Gazipur, several cars are now on the verge of collapse after falling under the open sky. Authorities did not take any action to protect these vehicles from years after years. The actual number of these vehicles or information related to them is not stored.

According to data from Sreepur’s Cotton Research, Training and Seed Extension Farm, the government of Bangladesh formed the Cotton Development Board at 1972 to expand cotton cultivation in the country, since the country’s independence, the main raw material of cotton producing was stopped. Currently, the work of expanding cotton cultivation through five regional offices is underway across the country.

Of these, the 152-acre area is one of the central farms of Sreepur in Gazipur. For a long time the mechanized damaged cars of these farms were brought to this farm in Sreepur, due to lack of storage space at various times.

However, the authorities have not made any decision regarding these cars. Authorities have not been able to provide the exact details of the vehicles, according to the documents, although 22 vehicles have been found under the open sky at present. The cars include jeeps, minibuses and trucks. That market value is several million takas.

GM Farhad Hossain, a Crop Agri farmer at Sreepur Cotton Research, Training and Seed Extension Farm, said the vehicles were brought here from other farms at different times after the farm was established. But we have no information about these cars. Though the cars worth crores of takas fall under the open sky, no decision has been made on the cars yet.

7 main reasons why your car may not start

What to do if the car suddenly stops on the road? Or some of the main reasons why your car may not start: –

  1. The main reason for not starting the car may be the absence of battery charge. Many times, keeping the engine off of the car for long periods of time, keeping the lights on, or turning on the AC or running a CD DVD, the battery may end up charging. If you still see the horn sounds, head lights can on and you think the battery charge is low then you can start the car by jumping on the cable from the vehicle’s battery by requesting the driver of another vehicle on the road.
  2. Due to problems with the ignition switch many times the car may not start. In that case, with the shift lever in the left hand, you move from P to N and N to P, and continue to start the car in the right hand.
  3. The starter motor of the car can also be the cause not being started many times. The vehicle starter motor may become jam or the connection may lose. The car’s starter motor is likely to be jammed after running 1,000 km. In that case you can start the car with the help of one. With a range or iron rod in your hand, attach the body of the starter motor to the engine body and gently hit one and letting the engine start working can be done.
  4. If the Push Start car has remote key, the car cannot be start when its battery damaged. In that case you can bring the remote key to the monitor and push it and see if the car starts. If it does not work, enter the remote key to the push button and start the car slowly. Later change the battery of the remote key.
  5. When the engine over hits, the car will not start but how do you know that the engine is over-hit? Look at the engine meter where the meter indicator is. If the meter indicator is between C and F, then the engine overheats, and then restarts when the engine cools down.
  6. There may be other reasons why the car is not started, such as the dirt trash on the Exhaust pipe, or if someone closes it himself.
  7. There are many other reasons such as there is no fuel in the car, no engine oil, no mission oil.

Can Asia junk cars for bicycles and buses

Can Asia junk cars for bicycles and buses?

Sprawling mega cities from Bangkok and Manila to Jakarta and New Delhi Must curb over reliance on the privately-owned car to decongestant increasingly clogged streets and create more livable cities.

But urbanizes, incessantly plaued by traffic jams, should be offered fast and efficient transport alternatives, bus, light rail, subway, bicycles to wean them away from their cars.

“Developing a mass transit system, with its effective use of space and lower per passenger pollution levels,” is a top priority option for the 21st century, says an Oxford University publication: World Resources 1996-97.

The caress urban poor rely on buses as their transport Choice because of affordable fares. Buses can carry as many as 80 passengers during peak hours. Yet, they take up space of no more than two cars.

In 1980, an estimated 600 million trips daily were made buses in developing world. This figure will double by year 2000, World Resources cautions.

“As long as buses run on the same congested streets as other vehicles, they will never be an attractive alternative for those who can afford a car, “the study says. It proposes the option of creating a dedicated bus lane” to increase bus ridership. Such a lane “can move twice as many people per hour as buses operating in mixed traffic and 40 times as many people per hour as cars.”

This system of combining exclusive bus lanes and high-speed network already has a track record of considerable success in: Curitiba, Brazil; Abidjan in cote d’Ivoire; plus, Ottawa and Ontario in Canada. These have proved flexible in serving low to medium density urban areas.

But bus services in Asia’s metropolises fall far from this standard. Unconformable and unreliable in Asia. They also tend to be noisy and polluting.

World Resources insists on regular maintenance to help improve their safety and reduce emissions.

In dense Asian cities like Manila, the light rail transit has become another increasingly attractive and viable transport alternative to city residents. Bangkok’s LRT is nearing completion.

Terms and trolleys can move more people 6,000 per hour in mixed traffic and up to 36,000 people per hour with five or six car trains. They consume fearless energy and emit fewer pollution.

Subways can also decongestant crammed city streets. They promise high mobility and can be built under valuable urban land and are less polluting.

“Subways are not for sleeping” Construction operating and maintenance costs are heavy about $40 million per kilometer in Santiago, Chile, $64 million in Osaka, Japan and $ 117 million in Caracas, Venezuela. In comparison, a surface light rail system in Tunis, Tunisia cost only $29 million per kilometer.

“Cities should resist temptations to per sure flashy advanced technology solutions when lower cost approaches such as buses might be adequate” the study says.

Existing public transit service can be upgraded. Bus service could be privatized and deregulated. In SriLanka, deregulation allowed bus owners to compete with the public bus company substantially improving service coverage and quality.

Informal transit services such as the jeepney in Manila, the kabus-kabus in Lagos, Nigeria and dolmus minibuses in Ankara, Turkey should be integrated into existing transport system since they cater to the urban poor, World Resources adds. Their trips are more frequent. And their small size allows them to maneuver through narrow, winding streets.

“Bicycling and walking” the study notes, “are often the only means of transportation available to the poor in many urban areas particularly in Asia.” More than half of the world’s 800 million bicycles are estimated to be in Asia. China, where 50 to 80% of urban trips are by bicycles, has more than 300 million.

Bicycles can boost public transport services by linking outlying settlements with public transit routes.

Thousands of bicycles parked outside train stops are common sight in Beijing and New Delhi.

Governments need actively promote bicycle commuting by offering subsidies to those cycling to work and allocating extensive and separate urban street space to bicycle traffic. In Havana, Cuba bicycles helped reduce car traffic by 35% and bus traffic by 50%, world Resources notes.

Where urban populations grow rapidly, demand for transportation skyrockets. And cities need to reexamine urban transportation demand and devise new strategies that provide maximum access at a minimum total, cost study concludes.

Which car you should buy-old or new?

Are you willing to buy a car? But you can’t decide which car will be bought? New or old (recondition)? Then know some important information before your buying old or new car.

Old cars

The businessmen are saying, the old car may not be beneficial though it will cost lower at the beginning. Because, there is no after sale service. There is no guarantee for certain period.  So evaluating different matters it will be better to buy new car than old and it will be better for long term. Besides new one is better than old one if we think about environment.

The distributor company of Toyota Bangladesh Navana’s head of the sales Hamidur Rahman let us know, “The car which we imported, those cars are imported after thinking the situation of our country’s roads condition, environment condition, oil condition above all several situation keep in mind. For this reason you will get better service from a new one.”

According to Hamidur Rahman, various kinds of switch, device, boards etc are used in the car like electronics products. So these kinds of parts’ longevity doesn’t remain same after few days. Besides, the old vehicle is harmful for the environment. Because, led or sisha comes out from these cars. And comparatively led or sisha will be fewer in the new cars. For this reason at the developed country, they have to pay high taxation for renewal of these cars. For this reason the Japanese don’t use these kinds of cars and we imported those from them.

In this matter, the head of the Honda sales department says, it is better to buy a new one than old one.
