Checking over the car
With the initial first look at the vehicle, make sure you take with you an NRMA Used car buyers' inspection checklist, which will help you assess the condition of the vehicle.
In helping you make an informed decision, we recommend you have the vehicle inspected- NRMA MotorServe and NRMA selected approved repairers can thoroughly inspect your vehicle and provide you with a comprehensive report.
