Buying a used car can be risky because you’re not always sure what you’re getting. You might not know everything about the car’s history, or if there are any hidden issues lurking under the hood. That uncertainty can make buying a used car feel like a gamble.

In a recent viral TikTok video, @bro_wong was approached for assistance by a woman who claimed she was scammed after the used car she purchased broke down just a week later.

“This is the only car I have”

Being a used car dealer, Wong took it upon himself and agreed to visit the woman at her home in Johor to investigate the issue with her car.

In the video, the woman explained that she had owned the used car for 3 months, but just a week after purchasing it, the car broke down.

“I don’t know what else to do, since the car won’t move anymore. I’m also a single mom. I tried contacting the person who sold me the car, but he wouldn’t answer or even reply to my messages,” she added.

She bought the car without a warranty

Upon inspecting the woman’s car, Wong asked her about the year and model the used car was supposed to be. She revealed it was advertised as a 2014 model, but upon further inspection, it was actually manufactured in 2013.

As he dug deeper into the details of the purchase, surprising information about the car came to light. The original price of RM35,000 skyrocketed to RM51,790 due to additional fees.

Not only that, the single mother was required to pay RM1,107.73 each month with a 9% interest rate.

Wong then pointed out to the woman that the calculations done by the salesman were not accurate, and the monthly payment amount was unreasonable.

“If you look at the details on the paper, it says that for a loan of RM51,000 at a 4% interest rate, the expected monthly payment should be RM825. But, it shows a payment of RM1,107 here, with an interest rate of 9%,” he explained.

He then assured her that he would help by arranging for the car to be taken to his friend’s workshop, where it could be thoroughly inspected and any necessary repairs made.

“For everyone else considering buying a used car, it’s important to think carefully before making your decision. If you do decide to go ahead, make sure to always ask the seller for a warranty to prevent such issues,” Wong advised.
