Pre-Purchase Inspection

Buying a Used Vehicle?  One tip can save you Thousands!

You’ve been scouring the internet for your next vehicle…..

You see one that really catches your eye.  Whether its on a lot or posted on craigslist, (or any other website), it appears to be in great condition.  The owner says that all the miles are highway miles (which take less toll on a car) and when you ask for information, they tell you they’ve never had a single issue with the car.  They say, “It just the breaks my heart to have to sell it.”

Great!-How Lucky!- Right? ….

Maybe…but maybe not !

Sure, deep down we want to believe that most people are honest, but its also important to realize their goal is to sell the car.  If only there were a way to really, really know if they were telling you the truth.

Buying a used vehicle can be a stressful process, but there’s one strategy that can alleviate the short term stresses and provide you peace of mind about your potential purchase.  A pre-purchase inspection with a local auto service center will examine mechanical safety, and appearance aspects, such as the vehicles:

– Tires

– Frame

– Suspension

– Glass

– Lights







-Body Condition

The Benefits of the Good, Bad (and sometimes Ugly) Reports

-A positive report should give you confidence to move forward with the vehicle

-An average report giving you a heads-up on upcoming maintenance issues can help you negotiate a better price or give you enough hesitation to walk away.

-A negative report will help you turn around and run as fast as possible from an endless money pit, and you’ll feel  proud about how smart you look for getting an inspection.

You wouldn’t dream of buying a house without having a building inspector provide an analysis of its condition… don’t do it for your vehicle, either!

If you’re looking for a local and knowledgeable team to perform a pre-purchase inspection for you, our technicians at All Phase Auto Repair will be happy to guide you through the process.

The All Phase Auto Repair Advantage

Our technicians use Ipads and capture photos of all the inspection points throughout the process and email or text you a full report, giving you a true, first-hand insight of the vehicles condition.

Unfortunately throughout the years, we’ve seen many customers-way more than we’d like to admit – who’ve scheduled a service after they’ve purchased their vehicle, where we had uncovered several mechanical or safety issues that required thousands of dollars of repairs to simply boost it to the condition they believed it to be.

“Auto A/C Repairs and Recharge”

Why does my A/C blow warm? Many customers have experienced A/C problems usually at the worst possible time, when its time to go on vacation with the family, office travel commute, and or the first 90 degree day of summer. All Phase Auto Repair knows how to correct A/C REPAIRS no matter what the A/C PROBLEM is. A/C SYSTEMS can generate leaks due to lack of use which can cause seals and gaskets to leak when they are not properly lubricated from compressors. Cant blame anyone for not using A/C with gas prices so high, A/C  systems decrease fuel economy and power when running. All Phase Financing options allow you to CHARGE YOUR A/C REPAIRS when CHARGING YOUR A/C SYSTEM.
