Pre-Purchase Inspection

Don’t Risk Buying a Used Car Without a Pre-Purchase Inspection

Before purchasing your next used vehicle, be sure to receive a pre-purchase vehicle inspection at your nearest AAMCO Central Florida Location. A used vehicle can look pristine and perfect on the surface but, under the hood, it may tell an entirely different story.

There are many less than honest tactics that can be employed to make a used vehicle appear in better condition than it really is, and, sadly, the average car buyer is unaware of what these tactics are.

However, an experienced and trusted AAMCO Mechanic can quickly spot anything problematic that should be brought to your attention. You can potentially save thousands of dollars and countless hours of headaches by avoiding the purchase of a lemon.

The Benefits of Receiving an AAMCO Central Florida Used Vehicle Pre-Purchase Inspection Include:

  • Protecting yourself from buying a used vehicle that may need costly repairs
  • Ensuring the used vehicle is safe to drive
  • Paying the right price for your used vehicle
  • Knowing the vehicle won’t break down in the near future
  • Verification of the equipment and options on a vehicle

Understanding Your Car: Transmissions

Inspect Now, Save Later

There are a few major problems that can be spotted during a pre-purchase inspection. Frame damage can indicate a vehicle has been in an accident. A damaged frame makes the vehicle significantly less safe in a future accident and can dramatically affect a vehicle’s performance and longevity.

Repair work that had been performed previously may have been improperly done which can affect many things on a vehicle. Bodywork that has been performed and incorrect installation of various modifications can make the car unsafe to drive, or cause damage to the vehicle in the future.

Even things you may not consider such as flood damage can be spotted by a trained vehicle inspection expert. A car’s systems and performance overall will be severely affected by any flood damage. Much of this can’t be spotted visually, and any performance or functional issues will come out over time – probably sooner than later after you buy the car. A good pre-purchase inspection by an expert mechanic will spot engine, transmission, exhaust, radiator, and other issues that are likely caused by flood damage. This will save you from having to constantly take the care to the mechanic for diagnosis and repairs for problems that will continue to show up in the car.

At AAMCO Central Florida, these potential problems can be avoided by getting your pre-purchase inspection with one of our expert mechanics.
