Get a Pre-Purchase Car Inspection Before You Buy!

Thinking about buying a new used car? You are preparing to invest in your stallion, and you should make sure that it is in the best condition possible before you buy. The easiest way to make sure your new used car is in tip-top shape is to receive a pre-purchase vehicle inspection at your nearest AAMCO Bay Area. A used vehicle can look pristine and perfect on the surface but, under the hood, it may tell an entirely different story.

The Benefits of Receiving an AAMCO Bay Area Used Vehicle Pre-Purchase Inspection Include:

  • Protecting yourself from buying a used vehicle that may need costly repairs (“buying a lemon”)
  • Ensuring the car is safe to drive
  • Getting a fair price for your car
  • Peace of mind – knowing your car won’t break down
  • Verification of the equipment and options on a vehicle

Get a Prepurchase Inspection – Save on Repairs Down the Road

There are a few major problems that can be spotted during a pre-purchase inspection. Frame damage can indicate a vehicle has been in an accident. A damaged frame makes the vehicle significantly less safe in a future accident and can dramatically affect a vehicle’s performance and longevity.

Repair work that had been performed previously may have been improperly done which can affect many things on a vehicle. Bodywork that has been performed and incorrect installation of various modifications can make the car unsafe to drive, or cause damage to the vehicle in the future.

A good pre-purchase inspection by an expert mechanic will spot engine, transmission, exhaust, radiator, and other issues. This will save you from having to constantly take the care to the mechanic for diagnosis and repairs for ongoing problems with your new used car.

At AAMCO Bay Area, these potential problems can be avoided by getting your pre-purchase inspection with one of our expert mechanics.
