Pre-Purchase Inspection Checklist
A few of the things that we look at during a pre-purchase inspection include:
- Overall condition of the vehicle – When you are buying a used car you typically have to take it on good faith that the vehicle is in the condition that the seller says it is. Don’t. Let us give it a look to verify that it truly is running well, has little wear and tear, etc.
- Equipment function – You want to know that all the bells and whistles of your new-to-you car are working properly.
- Diagnostics – If your potential vehicle shows a long list of error codes, you certainly need to know that before purchasing or even bargaining.
- Hidden issues – There may be issues with the vehicle’s frame or engine that you can’t easily spot or check, but we can.
- Previous repair work – If the car has been repaired before you’ll want to know if the work was done correctly or if it could pose a potential issue further down the line.
When you choose Smog Man®️ Test & Repair for your pre-purchase inspection, you will be able to go back to the seller confident in your decision to purchase the vehicle or continue your car shopping journey.
