Pre-Purchase Inspection

"A trained eye can help you avoid serious problems"

Now that you've found the right car, you need to know if it's reliable, safe, and ultimately, worth the amount you're about to invest. How can you avoid buying someone else's headache? Simple - get a pre-purchase inspection. A PPI is a detailed assessment that determines the cosmetic, mechanical, and safety condition of a vehicle prior to purchase. At German Auto Repair, Inc. we offer 2 PPI options performed by competent, qualified technicians who are familiar with common trouble zones and know what to look for when inspecting a pre-owned vehicle available for purchase. We also inspect for accident damage (frame, uni-body) & paint & body work.
