Things to keep in mind before Buying MG Hector

 

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

    Popular used car MG Hector

    Ex-Showroom price ₹12,84,000
    The Hector is big, looks rich, is feature-packed, has set a higher standard for in-car technology, rides well and is a comfortable five-seater. However, there is no diesel automatic and this can be a deal-breaker for some. Yet, the Hector is capable to persuade many prospective buyers who are looking for a spacious and luxurious SUV.
