Why Getting a Pre-Purchase Inspection Is Important

If you’re in the market to buy a pre-owned vehicle, there are several things you should be wary about. A car is a major investment, and you should make sure every claim that the seller makes about the vehicle is true. To avoid getting scammed into buying a car with troubles, we recommend bringing your car to our auto repair shop for a pre-purchase inspection.


A pre-purchase inspection can give you the reassurance you need before buying a car. It can save money in the long run by avoiding a potential scam. Our auto repair shop will act as an unbiased 3rd party in the inspection. We have skillful mechanics who can pay close attention to all aspects of the vehicle you are intending to buy. We’ll let you know if there are any services or repairs that the car may need in the foreseeable future.


At every pre-purchase inspection, our technicians will look at all the vehicle’s important systems. We will go over the following components:

  • Car body
  • Engine
  • Transmission
  • Brakes
  • Exhaust System 
  • Suspension
  • Steering System
  • & More!

Additionally, our team will take the car for a ride to get a feel of how it drives. A test drive will allow us to detect any unusual smells, sounds, etc.


Following the pre-purchase inspection, you will be handed a detailed report of the car’s condition. If we detect any trouble, we can provide you with all the details and the estimated cost of services. With this information, you can make a more confident decision on whether you want to buy the car.
