As we shared before, buying used Hyundai cars actually makes for a smart investment for all those who are purchasing their first vehicle or wanting to add another set of wheels to the family. But should you buy one directly from an owner or should you look for an authorised Hyundai dealership instead?
Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) is country’s largest passenger car exporter and the second largest car manufacturer. Even they recommend buying from an authorised dealership instead of personal referrals, the internet or brokers.
Here’s why you should buy used Hyundai cars from authorised Hyundai dealerships and service centres only.
1. Expert Technicians
Expert technicians of authorized service dealer will look at the car properly and will make ensure that there is no major wear and tear in the engine, transmission, ECU, brakes etc. This assures the new buyer of a vehicle that runs as smoothly as a new one.
But when you buy from an individual, you can never be assured of the vehicle’s health. And once you make a purchase, the original owner can’t be held accountable.
2. Certified used Car Program
Hyundai India has come up with its certified used car program under the brand name “H-Promise“. It is to ensure that only the best quality of used Hyundai cars are sold to customers. Through this program, the customer is assured of trust, transparency, convenience and peace of mind, from the car manufacturer himself.
When you buy from an authorised dealership, a certified engineer goes through 147 checkpoints to verify the vehicle. The dealership also covers a warranty of one year or 20,000 km (whichever comes earlier) and 2 free services.
On the other hand, no other purchase portal offers any of this.
3. Hassle-free process
If you are buying a used Hyundai car from an authorized dealership, you can be guaranteed of a hassle free paperwork process. The in-house experts will guide you through it all and even assist you in getting the vehicle transferred in your name, without any delay. But when you purchase from an individual or an online portal, you end up doing everything on your own and without any guidance – increasing the chances of mistakes.
4. Maintenance and service
If the used Hyundai car is purchased from an authorized dealership, you can also avail maintenance services under the H-promise program. You are eligible to get two free services from expert technicians at the service centre who check the vehicle for even the smallest of wear and tear.
5. Insurance assistance
Moreover, they also offer insurance services on all used Hyundai cars. The experts guide you in buying the right insurance policy for your vehicle, covering any wear and tear or damages in an accident. But any other purchase portal, does not offer you this.
Simply put, buying used Hyundai cars from an authorised dealership will assure you that the vehicle you purchase is as good as new. You wouldn’t just save yourself some money, but also will be assured of great quality.
