And one thing I notice is how often it seems to be in the shop.
Finally, it always amuses me when people point out the original price of a used car. If the car is being sold for 60% what it sold for 3 years ago - is it really that much of a bargain or is there a reason it lost nearly half its value that quickly?
You could get a 1998 7 series for about 5% of what it sold for new. It doesn't mean you should.
According to carfax report, the bmw was in the shop every 6-8 months. I don't consider that very often. May be some people think. I think as long the dealer has a free loaner, it is not that bad. I hate waiting at the dealer...
