Most of the dealers offer price less than market price so buying used Volkswagen Polo in Bangalore is affordable.
Evaluate the physical condition
Always evaluate the car in adequate light so that you don’t have to repent later on. Check under the hood for smell of burnt oil, leaks or other sings of poor maintenance. Turn off the engine and look under the oil cap, if you see lots of carbon deposits that means the car was not regularly maintained. If you have limited knowledge about functioning of car it is better to bring along an expert for better guidance.
