When we say “comprehensive” at Welsh Automotive Specialties, we mean it! Our full-service pre-purchase inspection covers a complete list to get you a full overview of your potential car’s health.
Here are some key areas our certified technicians pay particular attention to during your pre-purchase inspection:
During our inspection, we thoroughly examine the bodywork and structure of the vehicle to see if there were any signs of misalignment or damage from previous accidents or repairs. We'll also check the condition of the lights, windshield, and mirrors to make sure there are no visibility issues.
We'll look closely at your tires and wheels to ensure it's safe to drive. We examine the tires to make sure tire rotation has been completed regularly and look for uneven wear, as this could hint at suspension issues or alignment problems.
We make sure to carefully examine all of the important engine fluids, such as the oil and coolant, to identify any potential leaks. Additionally, we conduct a thorough inspection of the engine belt and hoses, which are crucial components that impact the overall performance of the vehicle. With regular oil changes, your vehicle should be in great condition.
In many areas, having an up-to-date emissions inspection is a legal requirement for car registration or renewal. We can ensure your car meets emissions inspection standards and will earn an inspection sticker.
These systems are crucial to vehicle safety and functionality, so we'll meticulously check the condition of your prospective car's transmission, braking, and suspension system to ensure it's ready to drive off the lot.
From the vehicle's air conditioning to the computer system, we also verify the functionality of integrated electronics, including the car's diagnostic systems.
