Hi Rachid,

Thank you for your interest in our pre-purchase inspection! During a pre-purchase inspection, the mechanic performs a standard 150-point inspection that includes a visual inspection of the fluids, body, brakes, cooling system, suspension, HVAC, tires, and overall external appearance. The mechanic may scan the car’s various computers for trouble codes and test drive the vehicle if it’s safe and operational and if permission from the owner has been given. If the mechanic inspecting the car is not given permission to test drive the car or it is unsafe to test drive the car, the inspection will be completed without the road test portion.

As the pre-purchase inspection is a visual inspection that assesses the condition of the car at a specific point in time, it is not guaranteed or covered under our 12-month/12,000 mile warranty. The inspection is completed while the car is assembled so the mechanic is not able to see the inside of the engine or transmission. Our mechanics do not take the whole car apart to check every component in the car. Thus, there are possibilities of impending failures that are not evident at the time of inspection.

You can learn more about our Pre-purchase Inspections and full Warranty Policy online.
