I did a search and found since forums saying dealers and many cars have their mileage rolled back.
If buying a used BMW, a mechanic inspection at the dealer is $3500. Not cheap and they claim to check the engine and transmission with a computer but I'm wondering what they actually look for and how accurate their inspection.
Keen to get people's experiences buying used cars, what to look for, would you consider a high mileage car (over 100k), etc. Does it matter if you can get a high mileage car for 50k less when you aren't even sure if the mileage on the lower mileage car?
Anyone know how dealer consignments work? Are the dealers holding the car or did they officially buy the car at a bargain to resell it?
I've contacted some owners who couldn't answer basic questions and asked me to contact their car salesman. They didn't know what engine they had or how many kilometers done.
Thanks for your input!
