New car, old tyres

Question : IS it normal for a new CKD ( completely knocked down ) car to be fixed with old tyres ?

For example, a 2009 car fixed with 2006 tyres ?

How can we confirm that the car we buy actually assembled in the same year we buy it ?

Answer : Under normal circumstances, the year of registration is usually the year of manufacture, unless you buy a car in January or February when it may have been produced the year before.

If you are fussy, you can ask to see the original documents when the car was released from the assembly plant and that will show the actual date of manufacture.

However, be warned that not many people will give you that information because it also shows the ex-plant cost.

If you say the tyres fitted on your car are year 2006, then it is possible it was assembled in 2006 or 2007.

By the way, don't forget that if you buy an imported car it can be as much as six months old before you actually register !
