What Questions Do I Ask When Buying a Used Car?

The most important questions you'll want to ask concern the vehicle's maintenance history, condition and warranty coverage. Don't be afraid to ask if the vehicle has paperwork documenting prior BMW service, and be sure to confirm whether the BMW factory warranty is still in effect. Also, discuss with your sales consultant the condition of the vehicle's mechanical features, including brakes, tires and fluids. We also suggest you follow up your inquiries with a used BMW test-drive in Waterbury. Here's some questions to get you started:

  • Does the car have a clean Vehicle History Report?
  • Are there maintenance records or receipts to verify any prior servicing?
  • What safety features and other technologies is the car equipped with?
  • Is the vehicle still covered by the factory warranty? If not, is it eligible for an extended warranty?
