Pre-Purchase Truck And Car InspectionsIn this culture today, car buyers must always be on the lookout for a scam. Unfortunately, scammers can easily capitalize on buyers that are not as well-informed on the status of a vehicle and the way that it runs. So, when you are making a vehicle purchase, consider bringing your potential vehicle in for a pre-purchase inspection at Clark Automotive.

A pre-purchase inspection is exactly what it sounds like. Whether you are planning to purchase a truck or vehicle from a dealer, a private owner, or even another mechanic, being smart and confident in your decision is imperative. At Clark Automotive, we offer pre-purchase inspections for your peace of mind. A pre-purchase inspection ensures you are not going to pay over-priced for the vehicle, it ensures that you aren’t going to be scammed with a clunker, and it may even tell you if you are getting a great deal! Not only can it help determine that your vehicle is safe, it may also allow you the opportunity to negotiate your price. Should our mechanics find something wrong, you can easily go back to the seller and negotiate a more realistic price based on our findings. If you are buying a car, a pre-vehicle inspection from an outside party is always recommended.

The Pre-Purchase Inspection Checklist

At Clark Automotive, we want to give you the most out of your money. So, when you come to Clark Automotive for a pre-purchase inspection, you can expect a thorough job well done. First, our mechanics will examine the general exterior of the vehicle. We will make note of any body dents, scratches, paint inconsistencies, glass, windshield or mirror issues. We will also take note of the overall look, condition and quality of the vehicle. Then, we will look under the car. Raising your vehicle up, we will be able to observe any leaks, rust and general look at the exhaust and brake system.

Once back on the ground, our certified technicians will check under the hood, assessing fluid levels, checking out the overall performance and ensuring quality belt conditions. Moving from the hood, we will look at the interior. We will observe and take note of any upholstery, seat belt and sensor issues. Additionally, we will test the heat and air to ensure that is working well. Lastly, we will take it on a test drive of our own, taking note of the driving conditions and warning signals. Asa precautionary measure, we even will perform a computer scan and provide a list of codes and recommendations that might be there.
