Whether you decide to purchase through a dealer or private party, the description could state one thing and the vehicle itself could be informing you of something different 🤔 Wouldn’t it be great if someone trusted checked over the vehicle and then honestly informed you of all it’s current repairs and future concerns, before signing the title? A Pre-Purchase inspection by a trusted mechanic can provide the peace of mind needed before committing to the major purchase a used car or truck. What we look at:
🚘 Exterior – glass, paint for fade, scratches, dents, Seams where the trunk and hood close and Seams where doors and fenders meet are properly aligned, Headlights and directional lights.
🚘 Tires – same make, free of any cuts, bubbles or cracks, alignment and suspension concerns, spare tire, jack and lug wrench on car and fully functional.
🚘 Engine – Free of fluid or oil leaks, Battery terminals free of corrosion, inspection of fluids, filters, belts.
🚘 Interior – condition of seats and carpet, doors open and close freely, trunk opens and closes freely, gauges, dashboard warning lights, stereo, heater, AC, windshield wipers, seat belt safety, windows operate properly.
🚘 Brakes – verify pad life, condition of rotors, inspect brake lines.
🚘 Suspension – inspect shocks/struts for leaks, check suspension bushings for abnormal wear.
🚘 Test drive – dependent on seller, test drive to run the transmission through all the gears, verify if vehicle is driving straight or pulling (alignment issues), check performance of brakes and suspension and overall verifying how vehicle drives and if that matches visual inspection.
Does distance or scheduling make the vehicle too difficult to get to? Rocco can contact the seller directly, schedule the meeting and perform these inspections without the buyer having to be onsite ✅ With each inspection, Rocco provides a detailed report including emailed photos (if necessary). He will also provide an overall opinion of the condition of the vehicle. Don’t get stuck purchasing something you aren’t 100% sure of!
