A car is generally the second largest investment we make in our lives after a home, yet on many occasions we are willing to trust the sellers opinion of the vehicle with our money! Would you buy a house without getting an inspection first? Not likely – most mortgage companies insist upon it. So why would you take the risk to purchase a vehicle without getting an independent opinion of it’s real condition?
For little more than an hour and a few hundred bucks you can get peace of mind by ensuring your car is a good investment and understand what service items you will need to spend money on in the near future.
Many consumers bring us vehicles that they’ve just bought, only to find there’s a whole host of problems they were unaware of. Don’t let this happen to you. This is why we strongly advise you take the time to have a used vehicle inspected with our PPI Service. See first hand from one of our customer’s experiences below:
“I was looking at purchasing a used Audi A4 and I wanted to make sure that everything checked out and I was getting what I paid for. First, I should point out that this vehicle said it went through a 120 point inspection. (which it technically did, but when shown the paperwork all I saw was a checklist full of “ok’s”. So that’s good… someone did inspect it, but how do I know what “ok” means. What is their standard of “ok”?
After seeing the inspection report provided from the dealer I decided I wanted to have another set of eyes check it over. With the PPI I found the tire tread was at 4/32, which means I would need to get a set of new tires before the upcoming Winter months (approx. $500) and I would need to have the rear brake pads and rotors replaced in the next 3,000 miles. (approx. $400) I was even lucky enough to view the undercarriage of the car myself and check if there were any rust spots or signs of wear and tear.
Having the PPI made me feel much more comfortable in my decision to buy the car and it also gave me leverage to go back to the dealer and get the price lowered. Not only did I get them to knock some money off, but I am now aware of the vehicles current condition and can plan for upcoming service priorities. This was money well spent to me!”
