Our professional car buyers from Sydney Car Buyers were happy to give us a more detailed explanation. Yet, we came up with the basic answers that did not involve too many terms that would be difficult for a layman to understand. Let us have a look at their answers.


  • Is it okay to buy a car that has been in an accident

    It is okay to buy your car if it has been in an accident? It totally depends on the amount of damage that has happened to the car in the accident. If the engine of the car has been damaged, it might not be a good idea to buy this car.


  • Is it okay to buy a car that has a lot of miles

    Yes! Again, its only a matter of the condition of the car. If the car has been maintained well, then go for it. It’s always a good idea to conduct a PPSR check in order to find out what went on with the car that you’re looking at buying. You will get complete details of how many times the car has been bought, sold, damaged, repaired, etc.


  • Is it okay to buy a car that has been a rental car in the past

    Buying a car that has been a rental is like making a gamble. If you have hygiene issues and are concerned about who might have been there in the car, it’s better not to buy it. If you want to buy this car to convert it to an Ola cab, then it’s not such a bad idea.


  • Is it okay to buy a car that has no title

    This shouldn’t even be much of a question! The answer is NO! It’s not okay to buy a car without a title because you don’t know whether the car seller is legally permitted to sell the car. These kinds of unregistered vehicles usually end up being a part of a fraud or a scam.


  • Is it okay to buy a car that has a salvage title

    This one’s a no, too. A salvage title essentially means that the car was damaged to the extent that repairing it would cost more than the original vehicle. Any such vehicle can only be bought once it has gone through inspection, and has been safe to be run on the road. Paying to get one such vehicle is not exactly a smart move and we would not encourage you to make it.
