If you are planning to buy a pre-owned vehicle anytime soon, but aren't sure whether you are getting a bang for your buck, a pre-purchase inspection may help. The beauty of a pre-purchase inspection is that it can help you avoid buying a lemon (aka getting scammed)! To maximize every dollar you spend, we welcome you to Marc Yount's Tire Pros for an honest and thorough assessment of the vehicle you are eyeing.
There are generally 3 main portions of every pre-purchase inspection. They include:
Part #1 - Digital Diagnostic
A pre-purchase inspection will include a complete vehicle diagnostic inspection. Your auto mechanic will not only use our eyes and expertise, but we will utilize the latest technology and diagnostic scan tools to give you a crystal clear, inside-out picture of the vehicle's true condition.
Part #2 - Physical Checks
Next, your trusted technician will physically inspect the parts of the vehicle that can’t necessarily be scanned by technology. Some examples include exterior wear and tear, fluid health, and the engine’s belts. This portion of the test is to identify any imperfections and easy-to-miss issues that you might not know how to spot. This allows us to determine the overall condition of the vehicle and assess whether it meets the asking price set by the seller.
Part #3 - Test Drive
A dependable auto service shop will test drive the vehicle as a final check. During the test drive, your tech should look for unusual sounds, such as squealing, grinding, skipping, stalling, etc. Overall, they will check whether the vehicle drives well, without issues.
At the end of your inspection, our techs will go over all the details with you and address any concerns you may have. If we find anything concerning, you can use the information to negotiate a better deal or drop the idea of buying it entirely. We are an unbiased team that can help you save time and money on a major investment. Otherwise, an unexpected lemon can cause you thousands in repairs and breakdowns in the long run.
