If you are looking to buy a used luxury car it is important to make sure you are not getting screwed over by the seller. Trying to identify what might be wrong with the car can be difficult and very time consuming. That is why we are here to help. To help you evaluate any used luxury car, here is a checklist of things that you should consider. 

First and foremost, you should confirm the car’s warranty coverage. Check if the seller has skipped or extended one or more maintenance intervals. Check to see if the seller has modified the vehicle with generic parts or engine management software. If so, there is a good chance that the seller has compromised or voided the vehicle’s remaining warranty as well.

The next thing you should do is get a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI). Doing so will make sure that you are not about to purchase a used luxury car that needs expensive repairs. Here at Midtown Autoworks, we offer a thorough check of major systems, body, chassis, suspension, brakes and engine on pre-owned Porsche and Mercedes vehicles for your peace of mind. Getting a PPI is a great investment towards trouble-free ownership. 

The last thing you should do before you decide to purchase a used luxury car is to find out whether any software updates may be outstanding for the specific vehicle you are looking to buy. If the car does not have the most up to date software the car might have a multitude of irritating problems internally and externally. Try and make plans to have the software updated and have them performed before you purchase. 

Buying a used luxury car is not easy and you have to be careful because there are some bad sellers out there. Do your research, follow these tips, and consult us here at Midtown Autoworks if you have any questions!
