Used Vehicle Inspections and why you should have them done before you Buy!

Feb 19th, 2017 - See our Blog Here for more Articles. 

It’s always exciting to get a new car – even when it’s used. But it can feel like you’re going out on a limb a bit when you buy a used vehicle. I mean, people sell vehicles for a lot of reasons. Maybe they just wanted a new car, maybe there was something wrong with it, and maybe there was something really wrong with it.

It’s a great idea to order a report from a vehicle history service. This can uncover title problems and may reveal serious accidents or flood damage as well as any recall notices for the vehicle. Maintenance and repair records are a plus, but most sellers don’t have them.  Warning: Be careful or third party online independent Reports, only an inspection can completely cover you.

Of course the best thing is to get a professional to perform a used vehicle inspection. The inspection will go much deeper than just how good the vehicle looks and drives. You’ll get a feel for the vehicle’s overall condition, the status of major safety systems, and an indication of how well it has been maintained. You’ll get a good idea of any work that needs to be done – and that will help you determine an appropriate value for the vehicle.

It’s pretty easy to see how a used vehicle inspection is worth the cost. If problems are uncovered, you can either steer clear of the vehicle or bargain for a better price. If everything is OK, you’ll have a plan for addressing any routine services that should be done, not to mention a whole lot of peace of mind.  

At Local Heroes Auto, we charge between $75.00 & $120.00 to do an inspection,  It takes almost an hour and we provide a detailed report on everything found, the good and the bad.  Over the past year we have had least 15 customers come to us after their car purchase only to find out they need hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of repairs, the kind that are not easily seen at time of purchase.  We have also performed over 30 Inspections for customers, of which over 1/2 of them did not purchase the vehicle.  

We are here to help you make an informed decision and usually we will fit you right in and we do not mind the dealer or individual owner party coming along with you.  We can do this both of our locations in Petaluma as well as our location in Santa Rosa. 

It’s easy to fall in love with a vehicle – just don’t let your feelings cloud your judgment. Have us perform a used vehicle inspection so that you’ll know if you’re getting a peach, or a lemon.

Happy car hunting -
