How to Inspect a Used Car Before You Buy

How Does a Dealer Inspect Its Pre-Owned Vehicles?

Before arriving in our used vehicle inventory, all cars are obliged to clear a meticulous, multi-point car inspection checklist of all minor and major automotive systems. An inspection includes many minute criteria which usually differ from one dealer to another. This ensures that each pre-owned vehicle is in ideal condition. Many, if not all, components may typically be put into 3 primary categories: mechanical, electrical, and service. Find out what it takes for a checklist for a pre-owned vehicle inspection.

Mechanical Inspection

Mechanical Review

From the brakes to 7-speed DSG transmissions, updated mechanical components control every function of today’s cars and it’s vital that they are functioning properly to avoid accidents and costly repairs. An exhaustive inspection should review these items and others such as the engine, CVT transmissions, 2WD or 4WD systems, the battery, the exhaust, and cooling systems (hoses and the radiator). If the vehicle is either a hybrid or an EV, the drive battery can only be serviced and inspected by a trained professional.

Electric Review

Electric Inspection

Now more than ever, modern vehicles feature complex electronics like emissions computers, dashboards, touchscreens, navigation systems, and cameras. So it’s crucial that they receive and pass the same rigorous tests as the mechanical components. A comprehensive inspection of the electronics includes all internal, external, and emergency lighting, as well as digital displays and running lights. Most important, however, are the proper functions of any onboard computer systems and any other systems controlled by electronics, like the ignition, engine performance settings, the brakes, safety tech, and mobile phone integration.

Service Check

Vehicle History Report

A comprehensive inspection can uncover any current concerns, but it could miss some issues that occurred previously. To fully appreciate the life of your car we use vehicle history sources such as AutoCheck and CarFax. These services find the full history of a vehicle and can typically bring to light information such as oil changes, title problems, previous accidents, warranty service, and mileage inconsistencies. Recognizing the entire history of the car or truck you are about to buy lets you make the best decision you can.
