We understand the need to be fiscally wise in today’s economy. Often, the best solution for your budget is buying a used vehicle. One of the downsides to buying a used car is not knowing an extensive history of the car. Many dealerships offer services like Carfax and other used vehicle service reports to inform you. These pre-purchase reports are helpful as they list the service history of the vehicle and let you know if proper preventative maintenance has been taken.

What information those reports omit is important. A report cannot always tell you if the car is safe to drive now. Are all parts and critical driving systems in good condition? What is the life left on items like belts, hoses, engine mounts and other key engine parts? At Christian Brothers Automotive, we want you to be safe in any vehicle you choose to drive. Let an expertly trained, experienced, ASE-certified technician conduct a pre-purchase inspection on the vehicle you are considering purchasing.

A pre-purchase inspection is highly recommended if you are buying a vehicle without a warranty. When you buy a vehicle without a warranty, you are assuming all the risk. In this case, a pre-purchase inspection makes financial sense. Trust Christian Brothers Automotives with your pre-purchase inspection. There is not an industry standard for pre-purchase inspections, but Christian Brothers Automotive will provide you with a comprehensive review of your prospective vehicle.

Spotting problems before your purchase the vehicle can save you a lot of money. If problems are found early, you could use this information to negotiate a better price on the vehicle. If there are problems that are too costly or make the vehicle unsafe, you can avoid the vehicle altogether and find something safer for you and your family.

If you are shopping for a used car, before you purchase, be sure to visit Christian Brothers Automotive for a pre-purchase inspection. We want to help you make a safe and financially responsible decision.
