Pre-Purchase Inspections


Inspect that used vehicle BEFORE purchasing. No piece of car buying advice is more often ignored than this: Have Harry’s Abbotsford AutoPro conduct pre-purchase inspections on every used car before you buy it. Why do buyers plunk down thousands of dollars on a car with little more than an around-the-block test-drive and a glance under the hood?

Experts agree that used cars must be inspected before the final negotiation for purchase. The ordinary car buyer, even if mechanically savvy, really can’t do it justice. “A stem-to-stern inspection, if it’s been done right, can tell you if you’re about to buy a great used car or step into a nasty set of problems.”
