Before making a large purchase like buying a pre-owned vehicle, it is a good idea to have an expert check it out. In fact, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission even recommends it, advising people to “consider hiring a mechanic to inspect the car” whether buying from a dealership or a private seller.
A pre-purchase vehicle inspection from Master Auto Repair of Webster Groves will go through the cosmetic, mechanical, and safety portions of the vehicle and make sure things are in good, working order. We will go in-depth and look for signs of damage or problems so you can feel confident that the car you are considering buying won’t break down on you next week. We’ll check for signs of undocumented accidents, flooding, and other events that can cause serious long-term problems in a vehicle.
At Master Auto of Webster Groves, we care deeply about cars and the people who drive them. If you are having any doubts or concerns about a car, you’re thinking about buying, please contact us to have it inspected to ensure you are not getting ripped off. As long as the car runs and looks ok to the naked eye, you may think everything is all good. In reality, something could be seriously wrong. Our mechanics know what to look out for and how to tell what exactly what is wrong (or right) with a vehicle so you can make your purchase with peace-of-mind. We can also help you estimate potential maintenance and upkeep costs, so you’ll know what to expect down the road.
