Hi.

(PFA, payment receipt for this question)

I am a newbie to cars and need help from an expert / technician who can thoroughly inspect / conduct 2 inspections - first being before final payment and second being a PDI right before delivery.

Could you please point out the best way to get such a technician / service in Pune city? Or would it be ok to go without technical inspection and pay up the full amount? (his might sound completely stupid but what can I do right now?)

Please help

Greetings !!

There is absolute no need of any one else to get technical inspection as essentially a new car does not need that

However, its important to carefully perform some steps so as to ensure smooth experience as few owners regret been missed on same and been later on observe a foul play from dealer side.

1. Ideally, One can make payment equivalent to upto ex-showroom price of car after discounts and may hold in amount equivalent to Insurance and road tax. This is just to ensure that dealer do not do registration or insurance without customer inspecting the vehicle and giving go ahead.

In rare case - even if making complete payment, its important to ask dealer and take in writing to not to bill the car and neither do insurance / registration without you inspecting the car in person. Only once you go ahead post inspection and satisfactory consent then can the dealer to register the vehicle

2. As part of inspection - some basic checks
a) To Check VIN Chasis Number so as to decode in actual manufacturing date of car By Manufacturing date means Month, Year of Manufacture. After 17 Digit VIN (also called as Frame number) (Eg : MBJ11JV4007509076 ~ 0918) are the last 4 digits which indicate in Manufacturing month and year, Last 2 digits (i.e. 20th and 21st Digit) indicates year. It should be 18 indicating 2018 while 18th and 19th Digit indicates month 01 for January, 02 for February, 10 for October, 11 for November, 12 for December

VIn Frame Stamp can be found on left side or right side in the engine compartment bay (attached)

b) To always inspect the car in broad day sunlight and check for uniform paint on exteriors, doors, boot lid without any scratch or paint touch up mark. Also inspect in windshield closely.

c) Check Odometer reading. Ideally should be under 50 Kms. If more than 50 and less than 100 - ask in dealer for reasons. Anything more than 100 Km should be avoided unless as very strong reasoning given which you can share with us

d) Inspect Tyre closely, Tyre also should be of same brand and there is a way to decode Tyre Manufacturing date too. Refer this easy guide on How to Decode Tyre Manufacturinghow to decode Tyre Manufacturing

e) Ask Sales Personnel to give you a brief demo. Check all lights, indicators, horn, steering, turn on the Engine - should be working easily. Have your friend or family member to be outside when you checking light, horn, engine noise.

Once satisfactory can make balance payment and schedule in delivery.

Hopefully by doing all these basic checks you should be good to go with your new car.
