Buying A Car
Start searching for a car by using the search box on the homepage. Just select the criteria of the car you have in mind and click the ‘Search' button to begin your car buying process.
You may also click on ‘Advanced Search' located below the ‘Search' button to narrow down the search results to find your ideal car.
You can contact the seller by clicking on the yellow ‘Contact Seller’ button on the ad in the Search Results. The yellow ‘Contact Seller’ button can also be found in the Car Details page under Seller Information.
Once you have made an appointment with the seller, you can request to view and test drive the car.
For new car purchases, the car dealer usually manages and prepares the documentation, processing all the paperwork on your behalf.
For used cars, car owners are by regulation required to send their car to PUSPAKOM for a full inspection prior to selling it.
Once the car has been approved by PUSPAKOM, the buyer will have to be present at the bank with the car registration document to apply for the loan.
Prepare the necessary forms for the transfer of vehicle ownership. You can download the forms from the JPJ website. The forms you will need are the following: JPJK3, TM-1, TM-AB (and a photocopy of the buyer and seller's ICs).
Go to JPJ and submit all the forms together with the original car registration card and a copy of the new buyer’s insurance cover note.
There is a processing time period for the completion of the transfer of name ownership before you will be able to collect the name-transferred car registration card.
Some car dealers may accept trade-ins with a new purchase from their dealerships. You should explore this option with your dealer to offset against the price of your desired car.

Naturally, ads featuring items are prohibited from sale by Malaysia laws, Those kinds of ads are not allowed on iCarSuite. They include but are not limited to stolen items, pirated items, and counterfeit items.
To protect our buyers, we reserve the right to decide which ads are unrealistic and to reject them. This includes advertisements with extremely high or low price.
We also reserve the right to reject ads that seem misleading.
Misleading ads often misrepresent the following details
- Loan amounts or percentages;
- Down payment amounts or percentages; and
- Interest rate amounts or percentages
We highly recommend that you include a statement such as "upon the bank's approval" or "subjected to the bank's approval" in your ad if you wish to include those details.
One ad will not grow your buyer and increase your sales. Frequency is the key to successful advertising. Next, you need to stay consistent with your ads. For instance, you should not list RM70,000 in the title and yet mention RM80,000 in the description. Such inconsistency will make your ad a prime candidate for rejection.
Relevance itself refers to how much useful your information is to buyer’s search. Your ads details need to be relevant to the advertised car. For example, pairing a Honda Accord image with Proton Perdana title and description will result in your ad being rejected.
Keyword stuffing does not help in promoting the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) ranking of your car dealer website. It works better if you consistently target a concise list of keywords, instead. Regular keyword research for search volume, coupled with the right mix of long-tail keywords can deliver amazing digital marketing returns, translating not only into higher search ranking, but also more leads, prospects, and ultimately, sales.
In the event that your ad is rejected due to non-compliance with our rules, you will be given up to 48 hours to make the necessary alterations. Regrettably, if no changes are recorded after 48 hours, your ad will be deleted from our database.

Safety & Security
All transactions between buyers and sellers are mutual agreements.
Please do not make any kind of payment before meeting with the seller to view the car. To further protect yourself, please obtain and verify the details of the seller before proceeding with any meeting or transaction
Have your guard up if a deal sounds too good to be true. Always check on Carlist.my to verify the market rate of the car in question before making a purchase.
False enquiry scams are also known as buyer scams as they often involve fraudsters posing as buyers feigning interest in the car for sale.
Details vary from scam to scam, but typically fraudsters will pose as interstate or overseas buyers keen to buy the advertised car without showing up in person. They are unlikely to negotiate on price and may even offer to pay more than the asking price.
In order to provide a secure platform for the Sellers and Buyers to chat with each other, we not only verify their accounts and information attached with it but also constantly update it for the better experience of both the parties.
