I just received a copy of the pre-inspection and work done on the car i intend to buy by the dealership. It details some work done and a pre-inspection as well. Would this be trustworthy?
The dealer may have biases that would cause them to overlook certain aspects or decide that it is not cost effective to fix items before selling it to you. I would still get the vehicle inspected by an independent mechanic if you haven’t already done so.
They will not have ties with the dealership and their pre-purchase inspection may uncover items that were not noted for in the report. Double checking this with a independent mechanic is a relatively inexpensive way to ensure the condition of the car in proportion to the magnitude of actually purchasing the car.
