Pre-Purchase Inspection in Santa Cruz

Pre-Purchase Inspection

It is best to do a Pre-Purchase Inspection before you buy a used vehicle. It will save you time and money. It could give you negotiating power. We do a full bumper-to-bumper inspection, test drive, check interior and exterior components as well as underneath the car. We combine digital with other inspections and produce a clear picture of what needs repair in order of importance. Plus, we give a rough estimate of how much the repairs will be.

Pre-purchase inspections by our team of ASE-Master Level Certified Automotive Technicians at Water Star Motors in Santa Cruz can save your wallet from unexpected auto repairs, improve your negotiating power during the purchasing process and, most importantly, help ensure you buy a safe / reliable vehicle.
Whether conventional vehicles, hybrids or full electric, domestics or foreign, older or barely used,  AAA-Certified Water Star Motors will provide a full bumper-to-bumper pre-purchase inspection, with digital inspections and a full report of what automotive repairs are needed now, soon and can wait. In addition, our ASE Certified Automotive Technicians and Advisors will provide an approximate estimate of how much each of the auto repairs will be, so financing and timing can be aligned.
Our customers really like the pre-purchase inspections service performed by our Clean, Green Automotive Repair Team. In particular, they enjoy visiting our on-line operating system where they can view the images that our automotive technician has uploaded and commented on.
