Pre-Purchase Used Car Inspection Los Angeles


Have a certified third-party auto repair shop perform a comprehensive pre-purchase car inspection for the following reasons:

  1. Knowing the real value of the car, may get the seller to come down in price. Knowledge is Power.
  2. Get a  heads up on immediate issues with the vehicle, and budgeting info to prepare you for car expenses down the road. Steer clear of lemons.
  3. Less stress, knowing you did your homework.


We provide a few openings where the car needs to be brought to our 10,000 square foot auto repair shop at 2511 Glendale Blvd in Los Angeles. We are right off the 5, 2, and 101 (Hollywood Freeway), directly across the street from 365 Whole Foods in Silver Lake. We lift the car to conduct a 56 point inspection. We look at the interior, exterior, paint and check if the vehicle was in an accident. We review the structural soundness. Scan all computer control modules, test in-cabin controls, and all mechanical and peripheral systems. Once our testing is complete we provide an itemized report of our findings with an assessment for all current and future needs. Used car inspections are billed by the hour, starting at $128/hour.
