Buying a “New-To-You” car is exciting. But before you get too emotionally attached, you should get a pre-purchase inspection done by a qualified mechanic PRIOR to committing to the purchase. Why is this important?
When you purchase a pre-owned vehicle, chances are, you are receiving the car as-is. This means that the moment you complete the sale, all of that vehicle’s problems are now yours. A pre-purchase inspection can provide you with the insight into the car’s obvious mechanical issues. If there are minor or severe mechanical problems, you can decide whether you want to opt out of the sale or negotiate the price to make up for repair bills.
Let’s face it, not everyone in this world is honest. When the seller tells you the car has never been in an accident, or that a previous accident’s repairs were completed, you should be able to verify this. A pre-purchase inspection will tell you if there are any unrepaired damages to the car. In the event the car has been in a serious accident, unrepaired mechanical parts, frame and body work could cause safety risks. Being aware of these risks can prevent you from purchasing a vehicle that could cause harm to you or others.
