The Need For A Pre-Inspection

When your average Joe goes to buy a car, they can be easily distracted by shiny wheels and a fresh paint job. While aesthetics is always a nice benefit to a vehicle, if the car doesn’t get you from point A to point B, looks aren’t really going to matter much. Therefore, a pre-purchase inspection is always recommended before you buy a car. Unfortunately, there are people out in this world, and even some seemingly credible dealerships, that are looking to manipulate you and make a deal on a vehicle that is subpar. So, if anyone tells you they had it inspected and it is good to go, how can you believe them? At Clark Automotive, our longstanding history of honesty and integrity speaks for itself. As a third party looking at your potential vehicle with fresh eyes, we have no skin in the game and have no reason to provide you with a false report. At the end of the day, there is never a reason not to perform a pre-purchase inspection before you make the vehicle purchase.

What Does Our Pre-Purchase Inspection Include?

When you bring the vehicle in, our ASE certified mechanics will first look at the exterior. We will examine the overall look, condition and quality of the exterior. We will take note of any dents, scratches or other damages, taking notice of the tires, paint, glass, windshield and mirror conditions. We will then raise the vehicle up and look under the car. This is an opportunity for us to look for any leaks, rust and examine the overall quality of your exhaust and brake system. Naturally, we will then look under the hood, examining the engine, checking fluid levels and evaluating the overall performance and belt conditions. Once that is complete, we will evaluate the condition of the interior, checking the upholstery, lighting, seatbelts and sensors. Lastly, we will take it for a test drive and see if anything looks amiss. Before you drive off with your vehicle, our team will finally perform a computer scan, checking to see if it’s up for recalls and looking for any codes or recommendations.

Overall, we provide a thorough way for you to have peace of mind in buying your vehicle and even knowledge to potentially get a better deal. For more information about our pre-purchase inspection services, give us a call today. Contact Clark Automotive today at (763) 784-7944 or by emailing
