Used Vehicle FAQs


Should I Buy a Used Car from a Dealership?

Yes. A trustworthy car dealership such as ours is a full-service business dedicated to providing customers with transparent information, after-sales support and product expertise. These qualities simply cannot be replicated by online car-selling websites or private sellers, as they don't have the facilities, know-how or operations to provide such a personalized customer experience. If you want to schedule auto service or buy a CPO VW in Connecticut, trust a local dealer like Central Volkswagen to take care of your every need.


What Questions Do I Ask When Buying a Used Car??

The most important questions you can ask about a used car will revolve around its service history, maintenance records, current condition and more. We suggest you keep in mind the following questions the next time you take a used Volkswagen Atlas or Golf GTI test-drive:

  • 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?

How Many Miles is Good for a Used Car?

A Low-mileage VW is preferable, but even high-mileage cars are great options if the vehicle was properly maintained. In fact, high-mileage vehicles can often offer years of trouble-free service at a highly competitive price point, making them popular among shoppers looking for used cars for sale under $15,000 or $20,000. No matter what you purchase, pay closest attention to a vehicle's overall condition, not its mileage. The general wear and tear a car may exhibit is often more telling of a vehicle's likely reliability than the odometer alone.


Which is the Best Used Volkswagen to Buy?

The answer is dependent on your lifestyle. Many Connecticut VW fans want to buy a used Jetta, Passat or Taos for their fuel economy and affordability. Some buyers want a CPO Atlas or Arteon for its size and opulence. Models like the Tiguan and Atlas Cross Sport also have a loyal following among nearby VW enthusiasts.
