A Pre-Purchase Inspection of a previously owned vehicle is highly advisable. You would do this for any major purchase such as a house or a piece of property. The boating world calls it a Survey The value to you of a Pre-Purchase Inspection is the saving of time and money by providing you with the information that you need to make a good decision. The Inspection starts with general visual and auditory cues and a road test, followed by a computer scan with printout. Then the undercarriage is inspected and fluids are evaluated. The process starts with the simplest items so that as soon as a disqualification is discovered it is at the point of least expense. Any issues are documented for use in negotiations. The value of the vehicle is also part of the advisories provided for vehicle ownership consideration. The goal is to have the best out-come for you. If a dealer or private owner will not allow you to arrange for an Inspection of the vehicle provided it is feasible to do so: DO NOT BUY IT.

Disclaimer: Please bear in mind that our assessment is based on our experience and that includes assessing the meaning of test numbers. AutoWerks cannot assess unseen elements, such as internal transmission parts. As with any type of inspection, the purpose of a Pre-Purchase Inspection is to help you avoid buying a vehicle with known defects. It is not a warranty against future failures of systems that can only be said to be operating correctly at the time of inspection.
