Pre-Purchase Inspection

Buying a used vehicle from a private-party posting on Craigslist or another advertising medium can be a daunting endeavor. But having the auto mechanics at JW Auto Care in the Scottsdale and Tempe area give the car a thorough pre-purchase inspection before the purchase can help ensure that you don’t get stuck with someone else’s problems--and auto repair costs.

At JW Auto Care, near Scottsdale and Tempe, our auto mechanics will perform a highly detailed pre-purchase inspection, starting with running a paint meter over the vehicle to see if it has been in an accident. Then they go through the car with a fine-tooth comb, including a test drive and photographs. At completion, we’ll give you an itemized report, including an estimate of the cost of any needed auto repairs.

This pre-purchase inspection performed by our auto mechanics can help you in the negotiating the price of the car with the seller, or it can alert you to some hidden problems that preclude the purchase. Cost depends on the vehicle and level of inspection, but it’s money well spent.

Here’s what a recent customer had to say about our auto mechanics performing a pre-purchase service on their vehicle at JW Auto Care, local to both Scottsdale and Tempe:

“What a great experience! Scot was upfront, honest, and thorough from the start. He really took my concerns and budget into consideration, and communicated throughout the process, even taking care of a temporary registration pass while all the details and repairs worked out.

Price was great, service makes this an easy recommendation. If you need an oil change, more significant work, or even an inspection before buying a used car - get in there now!

They even came and picked me up at work when my car was done. Great experience all around, and we'll continue to bring our vehicles in whenever service is needed.” --Mike M.
