3 days ago,paid the first EMI of the car too.
Not everybody is lucky like you and very few lucky deals happens this way. The crux of dealing with used car is with financial matters, If you really like the car and the owner sounds genuine then only an advance should be given and this too is the buyer's choice. The seller should readily agree to get his car checked in service center for it's service intervals (Off course the fuel expenses to be borne by buyer), do not agree for deals without inspecting the car in person and at broad daylight.
