Rivers Edge Services Automotive Tips: Used Vehicle InspectionDec 16th, 2015
It’s always exciting for any of us Prince George drivers to get a new car, even when it’s used. But it can feel like you’re going out on a limb a bit when you buy a used car. I mean, drivers sell vehicles for a lot of reasons. Maybe they just wanted a new car, maybe there was something wrong with it, and maybe there was something really wrong with it.
It’s vital to order a report from a vehicle history service. This can uncover title troubles and may reveal serious accidents or flood damage as well as any recall notices for the car. Maintenance and repair records are a plus, but most used car sellers don’t have them.
Of course the best thing is to get your Rivers Edge Services service advisor to perform a used vehicle inspection. The inspection will go much deeper than just how good the vehicle looks and drives. You’ll get a feel for the vehicle’s overall condition, the status of major safety systems, and an indication of how well it has been maintained. You’ll get a good idea of any work that needs to be done and that will help you determine an appropriate value for the car.
It’s pretty easy to see how an inspection is worth the cost. If troubles are uncovered, you can either steer clear of the car or bargain for a better price. If everything is OK, you’ll have a plan for addressing any routine services that should be done, not to mention a whole lot of peace of mind. It’s easy to fall in love with a vehicle, just don’t let your feelings cloud your judgment. Have Rivers Edge Services in Prince George carry out a used vehicle inspection so you will know if you’re getting a peach, or a lemon.
