All private vehicles have to undergo physical mandatory inspection to certify that they comply with all the rules and regulation prior to transfer of ownership. Under the amendments, effective June 15, all used vehicles for sale will undergo Puspakom's 18-point inspection to ensure their road worthiness. Does that mean that buying 2nd hand car is now 'safer' than before with the puspakom report on condition of the car? Is this reducing the risk of getting a 2nd hand car?

You don't test drive it? Puspakom 18's point check covers the followings:

1. Glass area
2. Condition of the body
3. Wheelhouse
4. Pillars
5. Cut and joint
6. Floor
7. Type of fuel
8. Chassis frame
9. Tyres
10. Engine mounting
11. Air-condition system
12. Odometer reading
13. CNG system for NGV
14. Side-slip test (to check the alignment of two front tyres)
15. Emission
16. Suspension
17. Brake system
18. Under carriage inspection that consists cut and joint, floor, chassis frame, engine mounting, exhaust system including muffler and gearbox (visual inspection for leakages etc).

Most of them are visible inspection. Perhaps from there, they are able to pick up some fault or quality issue but I think driving the car is still a must to test something that the 18-point inspection doesn't reveal.

Who is responsible to arrange for Puspakom inspection, is it the seller or buyer?
If you are trading in the car to a 2nd hand dealer, would the inspection be done by the dealer?
Is there a validity period of the inspection?

Let's say you as the seller is selling your car to the second hand dealer.
You got your car inspected and obtained the Puspakom Inspection Cert. As it is valid only for 30 days and the car might be with the dealer for more than 30 days before it finds a new buyer, do it mean that there is need to have another inspection when the new buyer takes over the car?
Then, who has to pay for the 2nd inspection?

As published in the papers, cars sold to 2nd hand dealers are recorded temporary with JPJ and will officially transfer name after the cars are sold. The temp arrangement is only applicable for limited period but I cannot remember the exact number of days. No report of 2nd inspection, I think we have to ask the dealers or JPJ for clarification. This is all I can remember.
