Are You Considering Buying That Next Vehicle?


Sedan or truck? Economy or luxury? Pink or Green? New or Used? These and a number of other questions will need to be addressed as you begin your search for that next car, van, SUV or truck.

Choices, Choices, Choices

There are a lot of choices when it comes to buying a new or used vehicle. New cars offer all the latest bells and whistles, factory warranties and that new car smell. They also can come with a pretty hefty price tag.

Used vehicles can provide everything you need at a substantially lower price, but how do you know you are not inheriting someone else’s problems?

Pre-Purchase Used Vehicle Inspection

Having a used vehicle inspected by a certified technician prior to signing on the dotted line is a great way to learn about the vehicle you are interested in and gaining some degree of peace of mind. By checking out a vehicle prior to buying it you can assess..

  • How safe is the vehicle
  • The vehicle’s reliability
  • Maintenance history and future maintenance schedule
  • Need for potential future repairs

Having this information can provide some “bargaining power” when negotiating the final deal.
