Pre-Purchase Inspections

If you're considering the purchase of a pre-owned Mercedes, a pre-purchase inspection is a wise expenditure. We can give you a clear picture of the car's overall condition and point out specific issues that will need to be addressed. The two most obvious benefits to you are:

  1. We can protect you from purchasing a misrepresented vehicle with hidden problems and / or requiring expensive repairs.

  2. We provide you with knowledge that will help you negotiate a sensible price with the seller.

For 1996 and newer vehicles, we will perform a complete diagnostic scan, road test, and visually inspect the vehicle for about one hour, and consult with you for another 30 minutes to discuss our findings.

Beyond the basic inspection described above, we can investigate specific items in greater detail if needed. Let's say, for example, you've found a car you like but the air conditioning doesn't work. The seller tells you, “it just needs a Freon refill.” Do you believe him? We can test the A/C system thoroughly and tell you what the problem really is. Such services will be billed to you on an actual-time basis at an hourly rate of $110.00.
