Once you've decided to purchase a pre-owned vehicle, either a car, truck or SUV, you need to have confidence that you've made the right choice. When buying from a private party instead of a dealership, you can save thousands of dollars, but you have no way of knowing the true condition of the car. It may look good and drive smoothly, but what hidden problems may be lurking under the hood.

Our ASE-certified mechanics will perform a thorough inspection of 91 critical components of the car and give you a written report on their condition.
