Let’s Take a Look Before You Open Your Checkbook.

Buying a car can be an overwhelming experience, and buying a used car requires extra vigilance and preparation.  Focusing on five important physical categories before purchasing your next used car will help ensure you cover all of the most vital areas - and getting the best price…especially if it is your first German car.

Here are some things that we will inspect BEFORE you buy –

1.  The entire exterior
2.  Check all of the tires
3.  How does the interior look?
4.  The engine and transmission, of course
5.  The suspension and steering

We are The German Car Shoppe located in Littleton, CO.  Having your potential used German Car purchase completely inspected ahead of time could be one of the most important decisions you can make.  We will take a thorough look and give you our unbiased opinion.  Call (303) 798-2287 or stop in at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive.

What is Volkswagen TSI?

If you have kept up with improvements to Volkswagen vehicles throughout the past few years, you have probably heard of Volkswagen TSI engines.  So, what is this Volkswagen TSI, exactly?  The least complicated answer is that it offers higher performance with less fuel consumption.  That’s great news as long as it is maintained.

You might wonder what TSI stands for (it seems like everything is an acronym these days).  It stands for “turbocharged straight injection” and was inspired by the technology of Volkswagen’s TDI Clean Diesel and FSI direct fuel injection engines.  The engine allows for higher torque at lower RPMs, which translates into more power with less fuel usage.

Keeping your Volkswagen in perfect working order is the job of The German Car Shoppe.  They are located at 5115 South Santa Fe Drive in suburban Littleton.  We have taken pride for many years at being the Denver area choice for quality, affordable, and reliable German Car repair.  Call ahead for an appointment for your VW at (303) 798-2287.

Buying a Used BMW 3 Series

If you are familiar with BMWs you know that the 3 series is a highly-coveted and popular choice among Americans.  If you are in the market for a used BMW 3-Series you want to keep in mind that maintenance will play the largest roll in cost of ownership for an aging BMW.  We want you to be informed as you search for the perfect one.

Here are some things to check -

Power window regulators.  They are mounted inside of the door frame.
The Cooling System.  The belts will often become brittle.
The Secondary Air Injection System.  It may illuminate the check engine light.
Rear frame damage.  If the rear sub-frame is damaged it may be unsafe to drive.

All of these inspection points and more are essential to look for when considering a BMW 3 series.  We are here for you to inspect all of these areas and more.  We are The German Car Shoppe of Denver and we pledge to take care of your beauty providing top-flight maintenance for years to come.  Call (303) 798-2287 for an appointment at our Littleton location.
