Request Appointment

Professional car dealers ensure inspection of used cars by a certified specialist before allocating to the buyer. The common car buyer, if not mechanically oriented, may not know the state of the vehicle and cannot really be truly informed during the purchase process. A thorough check is necessary to be sure the car is in the condition that the seller is claiming.

You should have the inspection done by a professional mechanic and also test drive it to an area that has bumps and hills to observe the mechanical performance and issues of the car. Have a third-party check the car. Of course, there is a lot of information about the vehicle on the internet but what you need is information about that particular car, so a professional examination of the vehicle will show the mechanical and hopefully any electrical issues and the state of the car.

WHAT IT COSTS, WHAT IT COVERS

Almost all auto service facilities, ranging from chain repair shops to independent garages and dealerships, offer some kind of pre-purchase inspection which usually costs $100 – $200. A number of repair facilities can give a description of the covered points in the inspection – usually above a 100 and an explanatory detail of how the inspection was conducted, although not all findings of the inspection are usually guaranteed.

Most Automotive experts agree that a good inspection serves several functions. It:

  • Builds confidence in the value of the vehicle.
  • Checks trouble codes that can reveal mechanical or electrical problems.
  • Confirms the condition level of the car, including such things as tire wear and the condition of the brake pads.
  • Reveals hidden problems with the body, frame or engine.
  • Verifies the functioning of equipment, including options, on the car.

Major problems that can be spotted by a good inspector include:

FRAME DAMAGE
If the frame indicates damage, that means the car may have been in a serious accident. Unless it had proper repairs, the wheels certainly won’t track well. As a result, the vehicle will be out of alignment causing premature tire wear and decreased fuel mileage. A case of poor repair work could also include improper engine service, sloppy bodywork, poor accessories or modification installation.

FLOOD DAMAGE OR FIRE DAMAGE
A car can get red-flagged if it has been in a flood or fire accident except if the title has been forged or falsified. You may not be able to identify a fake title, but it certainly will not pass the eagle eye of a professional inspector. Some other issues like hidden rust, burned-out bulbs, suspicious odors, fluid leaks, and overdue maintenance procedures can be revealed upon inspection.

MOBILE OR GARAGE INSPECTION?
Lots of people tend to find it hard deciding whether to have a mobile inspector check out their car or take it to the mechanic workshop for inspection. Although the most important thing is getting the right inspection, each method has its pros and cons.

A mobile inspection is quick and convenient, you get visited at home by your inspector for the onsite inspection and you are given the report on the spot. Photographs of any damage are taken from different angles.

For inspections carried out with more specialized equipment, you may need to visit your local mechanic (like Auto & Fleet Mechanic) or the service department of a dealership with your type of vehicle. For instance, your car can be put on a lift to make the examining of the underside easier.

BUYING FROM A DISTANCE
The internet has bridged the gaps between worlds, thereby providing people with a variety of vehicles. Without disregarding the importance of online car-buying sites, a car purchased from far away might include a number of potential problems that are not limited to out-and-out fraud, paperwork difficulties, inability to scrutinize the car before purchase, and payment issues. To avoid this, always order a pre-sale inspection.

If you find a car you fancy but it is from another part of the country, you should ask for a number of closely taken pictures and a vehicle history report like a CarFax™️ report. In fact, you should ask for a car history report on any pre-owned vehicle you purchase. However, a professional inspection will provide an extra level of insurance that you aren’t buying trouble, and that is very important. Plus arranging an inspection that will take place elsewhere isn't that difficult.

Without a doubt, it wouldn’t be wise to expect the seller to select the person performing the inspection. If you are acquainted with anyone in the area where the car is, you can ask them to recommend a trustworthy and professional mechanic or you can contact us and we can provide you with a multipoint, pre-purchase inspection. If you are unable to do any of the above, a separate dealership that sells a similar model of the vehicle can normally be trusted to provide a sufficient and exact assessment. If you are the one ordering and paying for the inspection, the report should be directly sent to you and not through the seller.

HOW CAN WE HELP?
Auto & Fleet Mechanic have personnel on the ground to provide you with a thorough inspection of the vehicle; they can also provide you with recommendations that will help you decide if the vehicle is ready to be purchased. Our technicians have, over the years, worked on a variety of cars and can easily tell a car that has been in flood, fire, or in a fatal accident. With the advanced equipment and current technology we have at Auto & Fleet Mechanic in Modesto, Ca, we are bound to provide you with the analysis you require on your proposed purchase. Give us a call now or schedule a meeting with one of our expert certified technicians.
