We understand the need to be fiscally wise in today’s economy. The best solution for your budget is often buying a used vehicle. One of the downsides to buying a used car, however, is not knowing its history in detail. Many dealerships provide services like Carfax and other used-vehicle reports to inform you. Pre-purchase reports like these are helpful, as they list the service history of the vehicle and can tell you whether proper preventative maintenance has been taken.
But the information those reports omit is also important. A report cannot always tell you if the car is safe to drive now. Are all the parts and critical driving systems in good condition? How much life is left on the belts, hoses, engine mounts, and other key engine parts? At Central Texas Auto Care, we want you to be safe in any vehicle you drive. Let an expertly trained, experienced, ASE-certified technician conduct a pre-purchase inspection of the vehicle you are considering.
A pre-purchase inspection is highly recommended if you are buying a vehicle without a warranty. You are assuming all the risk, so an inspection only makes financial sense. Trust Central Texas Auto Care with your pre-purchase inspection. There is no industry standard for these inspections, but Central Texas Auto Care will provide you with a comprehensive review of your prospective vehicle.
Spotting the problems before you purchase the vehicle can save you a lot of money. You can use any problems you find to negotiate a better price for the vehicle, and if they’re too costly or make the vehicle unsafe, you can avoid buying it altogether and find something safer for you and your family.
