Tips for Buying a Used BMW

Get the Quality, Save the Money

When you’re in the market for a vehicle, you may be able to save a few dollars if you’re willing to forgo the new car sticker. You shouldn’t, however, sacrifice quality. If you follow a few simple tips, you won’t have to. You can still get a great BMW even though someone else drove it first. Rocco’s European Garage (Buckhead location) in Atlanta, Georgia, can offer a little consumer advice. Once you bring that slightly driven beauty home, schedule an appointment with us for the routine preventive maintenance services and repairs your luxury model will need.

Tips for Protecting Your Investment In a New-to-You BMW

Buying a used car can actually be a smart move as long as you protect yourself and your investment. The vehicle may be great to drive and new to you, yet it comes with a diminished price tag. But how can you be sure you’re getting a good deal? First, make sure you’re doing business with a reputable dealer. Check out their ratings at local commerce agencies such as the Better Business Bureau, particularly if this is not a BMW dealership (i.e., an independent car lot). If this is indeed a BMW franchise, opt for a certified used car. This will ensure that the auto you choose meets strict criteria to earn that label. Also, ask to see the car’s history report. Check for accidents and bodywork, but be observant and trust your instincts even if nothing is showing up in the history. With a BMW, make sure to inquire about the service and repair records, too. Some particular models and years are prone to problems. For instance, do your homework as to whether the vehicle has had cooling system repairs, as this is a known issue for the manufacturer. Beyond these items on your buyer’s checklist, use common sense. Make sure the price of the vehicle aligns with your budget and that you have an idea of what the insurance will cost. Finally, never buy a car you haven’t driven.
