It's always a little uncomfortable buying a used car. Whether you are at a dealership or negotiating with a private seller, it's hard to know exactly what the vehicle has been through and how good it will run over time. Sure, you can get a Carfax report or a dealer's however-many-point inspection assurance and make sure it hasn't had any major work done. However, that still doesn't tell you what the future holds for the vehicle.
Get a Third-Party Opinion
Get the peace of mind you need by bringing it into Schultz Auto and Truck Repair. As a buyer, you have every right to seek a third-party opinion. The automotive service and repair experts at Schultz can perform a detailed vehicle inspection and provide you objective feedback based on what we find. We can let you know if the vehicle is in good shape or if there are problems you should be concerned about. We can also pinpoint minor issues that may not be a problem now, but could develop into something later. You'll walk away knowing exactly what you need to know before making the decision to buy.
If problems are found, Schultz Auto and Truck Repair will provide you with a breakdown and repair estimate that you can take to the seller. You may be able to use the information as negotiation leverage to get a better price or to get them to make any urgent repairs before selling it to you. Some people may still buy the car at a good price and then bring it to us for the immediate repairs and service. Sometimes, it is just good to know what needs to be done in order to make an informed buying decision.
The Information You Need to Know
In most cases, pre-inspections performed by reputable dealerships are fairly trustworthy. Some places won't put a used car or truck on their lot without a thorough inspection and some maintenance work already performed. Sometimes it's even backed by a warranty, which is great. Still, it never hurts to get a second opinion. When dealing with a private seller, it is very much recommended that you seek an inspection by an expert auto repair shop like Schultz Auto and Truck Repair. You deserve to know exactly what you are buying and if the purchase price is warranted.
Whether you come in for a pre-purchase vehicle inspection or for ongoing repairs and maintenance on any car or truck you purchase, you can count on Schultz Auto and Truck Repair for the professional service and personal care you deserve.
