It’s necessary to get a pre-purchase inspection done before buying a used car because you don’t want to end up with a vehicle full of expensive to remedy mechanical and safety issues that are not evident to the casual eye. Finding minor flaws with a used car can also be helpful to negotiate a better price with the previous owner, or request that repairs be done before you purchase the vehicle.
When we perform a pre-purchase inspection we make sure to look at your car from front to back. A full multi-point inspection will be performed, as well as a diagnostic test of the cars trouble codes, and control modules. Some items that we will be able to identify while doing a pre-purchase inspection is, visual problems with the body/frame, leaks or broken components, poor repair work, flood damage, and much more.
