U should get the car inspected by a reliable workshop for an independent report of its condition. The AA recommended workshops or STAR workshops are reliable. They would be able to tell if the car had been involved in accidents or display symptoms of major problems.

Places to view 2nd hand cars
1. West coast car mart
2. Kallang car mart
3. One down at Ubi, & Leng Kee or Alexandra. Cant remember.
Things to look out for? Too many!! But some of the important ones are mentioned by other CSers above. Bst to bring a friend along when you go for a test drive.
Happy car shopping.

One important thing to check is any accident signs. Try open and close all doors and boots. They should free very smooth, and the door alignment is correct. Otherwise suspect there was a major accident previously. You either look for another car, or negotiate for a much lower price.
