Best places to buy secondhand car

Postby mortlock2005 » Wed, 20 Aug 2014 10:50 am

I am looking to buy a 2010 hatchback car. Can anyone recommend the best places to look for cars? I'd be keen to hear about anywhere with good dealers and a decent selection.

West Coast Car Mart has half a dozen dealers and full hard-standing. Next to Westway Mall, opposite Haw Par Villa MRT.

Go to, http://www.sgcarmart.com/main/index.php, decide on the model and visit the places that sell it. There are many many, neither good nor bad, you will get sufficient idea when visiting them.

Thanks for suggestions. I've been looking at Sgcarmart today, and I wasn't sure if that's the best way to go.

We bought our car this way. The site gathers advertisers from many "marts", bigger ones like in Turf city or Ubi Automart but also many smaller ones. At the end of the day these are just individual dealers or owners and I don't think there are some particularly good or bad places.

Though there are many second hand cars and suggestions are also there but even then it needs to be the utmost priority to check the vehicle and its papers thoroughly to avoid any problem especially from safety and legal point of view.
Furthermore the condition of the vehicle and price are the decisive one to buy the second hand car.

Yes it is but I liked him liking my thread on the patterns in driving so I could not do anything for half a day but now he is gone.

He needs another profession. He'll never make it as a spammer. :?
