Is It Important to Get a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

With the surges in the automobile market, it seems like pre-purchase inspections are more worthwhile now than ever. You don’t want to get sucked into buying a car that you have headaches and stress over. That is why it is important for you to get a professional pre-purchase inspection before committing to a car.


When buying a vehicle, you want to get the most bang for your buck. A quality pre-purchase inspection will protect you from buying a car with underlying problems. Here is what the inspection encompasses:

  • Diagnostics - You can always expect a full and thorough diagnostic inspection with every PPI. We will go from bumper-to-bumper to gain a better understanding of the vehicle’s health. Additionally, we will inspect fluid levels, engine health, and other systems to check the condition of particular components.
  • Test Drive - A good and effective pre-purchase inspection will include a test drive. During this run, our tech will look for any squeals, grinding, skips, stalling, and other signs of trouble.  

A car is one of the biggest purchases you’ll make in your lifetime; therefore, you MUST be careful and 100% sure about the decision. Our team does this for a living, and we can help you save time, money, and trouble. So think of a pre-purchase inspection as a small investment that can save you so much more. 


At Sil’s Complete Auto Care Centre, we can help you find the best vehicle that suits your needs. At the end of your PPI, we will provide you with a full report, indicating any underlying problems we find. We can include an estimate of the services or repairs if they are dire. And you can return to the seller for re-negotiations.
