Should I Buy a Used Car from a Dealership?

Yes. While there are several other sources where you could look for used cars for sale -- including everything from the local classifieds to the latest online car-selling websites -- your authorized dealer will offer professional sales support, used car financing solutions, and a wide selection of models to choose from. That's exactly the case at Hoffman Porsche, where we strive to offer shoppers a full array of Porsche sports cars, sedans and SUVs. With our diverse selection of used and Certified Pre-Owned Porsche models, it's no wonder local enthusiasts turn to us for a premier used sports car shopping experience.

What Questions Do I Ask When Buying a Used Car?

When you begin to shop for a used Porsche in East Hartford, there are a few key questions you'll want to ask your sales consultant. The most important questions will regard the vehicle's service history, general condition and recent maintenance or repairs. We also encourage you to ask about any notable safety features and -- for newer or CPO cars -- if the factory warranty is still valid. Here are a few basic questions that our Porsche sales consultants will happy to answer for you: 

  • 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?

Generally, lower mileage is more ideal, as a vehicle that hasn't seen as much road time will usually have less wear and tear compared to a high-mileage car. That said, well-maintained vehicles with higher mileage are often available for a highly competitive price point, making them a great choice if you're looking for an affordable, reliable used car in Connecticut. Due to the typical usage of sports cars like the Porsche 911 and 718 Boxster, we often have low-mileage models in excellent condition from a wide span of model years. We're also known for carrying used Cayenne and Macan models that are ready for your next family road trip or adventure.
