Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe hatchback?
The diamond-cut alloy wheels on M Sport cars can corrode. This usually originates from kerb damage that allows road salt to react with the exposed metal. If this is left untreated, damage could spread. And since repairs to this type of alloy wheel are slightly more complex than standard alloy wheels, it can be quite expensive to fix. Make sure you’re not the one footing the bill for damage caused by the previous driver.
What are the most common problems with a used BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe hatchback?
There has been a recall regarding the fuel pump, relating to components in the pump that haven’t been nickel-plated correctly. The excessive friction that may result could cause the pump to fail, which either means the car won’t start or that the engine stalls due to a lack of fuel. Affected vehicles built between 2 September 2014 and 1 April 2015 will have had their fuel pumps replaced. Check with your BMW dealer if you have any questions.
