Used car dealers revealed the often strange – and sometimes downright bizarre – requests they have received from customers.
CarGurus has compiled a list of the strangest questions asked when buying a used car after surveying thousands of dealers in its network.
Among the oddest was a customer who wanted to take a car home to check if his dog liked it before he committed to buy, while one consumer wanted to know if he’d be able to fit a coffin in the back of a Ford Mondeo.
While the survey results show a common theme of buyers asking questions around price and payment terms, below is a list of the ten weirdest questions asked by consumers before they decided whether to buy a car.

|Will a coffin fit in the back of a Ford Mondeo?|
