They put the car owner in a loss of 100 thousand liras

With the approach of the summer months, the increase in the interest and prices for second-hand vehicles has started to increase the frauds performed in automobiles at the right rate.

In Turkey, where the second-hand vehicle market is active, a large number of second-hand cars are bought and sold in one day. Buyers who are looking for the most suitable one among thousands of cars are also the victims of the sellers from time to time. Sometimes due to false reports and sometimes due to carelessness, buyers take the cars that were filled after the airbag exploded, whose parts were changed, which were not registered even though they were damaged, and which were equipped with resistors to prevent warning lights, and they experience material and moral problems by noticing these errors later. From time to time, buyers may even come across that the front and the back belong to two different cars after purchasing the vehicle.

‘DETERMINATION OF PAINT PROTECTS DAMAGES OF 100 THOUSAND TL’

Cihan Emre, who said that a 2019 model B segment car, which was appraised recently in Istanbul, was bought by the owner from his friend as original and unpainted, but 4 doors were installed as a pull-out. ‘When we look at the paint measurement, our technical team detected paint on the middle pillars and chassis of the vehicle, whose body appears to be unpainted, although there is no record of damage, it was understood that the 4 doors were installed as coming out of an accident vehicle. This vehicle, which can be sold for 280-290 thousand TL, was purchased for 355 thousand TL. Even if there is no history of damage, only paint control is not enough, disassembly-installation and detection of paints in interior parts protect consumers from a possible loss of more than 100 thousand TL.’ made the statement.

In a 2019 model car, which was appraised in Istanbul Esenyurt recently, 4 doors ’emergence’ The replacement of the car with a door caused an average of 60 thousand TL of damage to the owner of the vehicle. Pilot Garage General Coordinator Cihan Emre made an assessment on the subject and made a series of suggestions to those who will buy second-hand cars.

THE BIGGEST CHEATS ARE DONE BY ‘KNOWLEDGEMENTS’

Emre pointed out that a significant part of the grievances experienced by consumers when purchasing second-hand cars are caused by ‘acquaintances’. ‘While purchasing a vehicle in our country, our tendency to buy by trusting our spouses, friends, relatives, acquaintances, and their owners, unfortunately brings with it an illusion as there are too many fraud cases in the market.

Unfortunately, many of our citizens buy the car from a friend without a comprehensive check-up and appraisal. Our advice is to have the car you buy thoroughly checked at a TSE certified corporate appraisal point of your choice.’ said.

‘MORE THAN A LOST PIECE, WRONG DECLARATION IS LOSSING THE CONSUMER’

Emre, who commented on the vehicle with a spare part, ‘When we look at the paint measurement, our technical team detected paint on the middle pillars and chassis of the vehicle, whose body appears to be unpainted, although there is no record of damage, it was understood that the 4 doors were installed as coming out of an accident vehicle. This vehicle, which can be sold for 280-290 thousand TL, was purchased for 355 thousand TL. Even if there is no history of damage, only paint control is not enough, removal-installation and detection of paints in interior parts protect consumers from a possible loss of more than 100 thousand TL. The vehicle you bought may be damaged, it may be changed, it may be paint, it may be a spare part. The important thing here is whether you pay more than the original value of the car, in this case, the wrong and incomplete statement of the person selling the car, rather than the spare part, puts the consumer in harm’s way. All four doors of the car, which was purchased as original, were installed on this vehicle from four different same-colored vehicles that were scrapped and taken out of traffic in the past.’ he said.
