Before you buy that car and subject yourself to “had I know?”, and a lifetime of headache jumping from one mechanic workshop to another, why not schedule a vehicle pre-inspection.
We will conduct a thorough visual and operating inspection of the vehicle. Our practical knowledge is combined with the use of specialist diagnostic equipment to provide an independent assessment of the vehicle’s condition at the time of inspection. That puts us in a great position to assess a vehicle from an unbiased standpoint.
We will inspect the following
Exterior : We will the chassis & panels for rust, dents, scratches and accident damage.
Interior: We will check interior trim, dashboard & instruments for condition and operation including the air-conditioning system.
Driveline: We check for correct operation of all drive train components including the transmission, differential, CV joints etc.
Engine: We use specialist diagnostic equipment to assess the general state of the engine including a relative compression test.
Cooling system: We inspect the cooling system’s general operation including pressure testing for leaks and the coolant fluid condition.
Suspension & Steering: We inspect steering and suspension components for effective operation, damage or fluid leaks.
Brakes: We test brake performance under normal load conditions and check all visual brake components including brake linings where visible.
Wheels: We inspect wheels tyres for tread depth and general condition.
Vehicle condition: We test drive the vehicle to assess the overall performance and drivability. We check aspects such as the transmission shift quality, general engine performance, drive line vibration, brake performance and road handling.
