Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection for Your Vehicle

Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection for Your Vehicle – Downey Auto Repair

Buying a car is usually exciting, especially if it’s a brand-new car. It does take some work, of course. You have to search for the right car, and you might have to do some price haggling. But when you drive away with the car you want, it feels pretty good. Whether you buy a brand-new car or a used vehicle that’s “new” to you, getting a good, reliable car is always the most important thing.

Obviously, when you buy a new car, it’s a safe bet that it will be in good shape. Even if it’s not the highest quality manufacturer, it is still brand new, so it should be reliable for a few years at least. On the other hand, when you buy a used vehicle, there are usually no guarantees. That’s why getting an affordable pre-purchase vehicle inspection is a really good idea.


Trusted Downey, CA Vehicle Inspection

What does this service include? When you find a vehicle you like, and you want to make an offer, just ask the owner – whether it’s a private party seller or a dealer – if you can have a mechanic look at it. If the current owner says no, then you probably don’t want the car anyway. If they say yes, then they likely have nothing to hide. However, that doesn’t mean the mechanic won’t find anything wrong. It’s always possible something is wrong the owner doesn’t know about. 

On the plus side, if the mechanic does find something wrong before you make an offer that could be helpful. If it’s a major problem and expensive repair, then you might not want to go forward with the purchase. It’s also possible the owner will agree to fix the issue before you buy the vehicle. The owner might also lower the asking price instead of repairing the problem, which pay for the pending repair. So whatever case, if the vehicle has issues, you come out on top. The last thing you want to do is pay for a vehicle with problems.

An affordable pre-purchase inspection includes a detailed and thorough check of the vehicle to be sure there are no issues, including the following:

Mechanical issues

Fuel system

Exhaust system




Tires and wheels

Coolant system

Belts and hoses


And more…
