It’s natural for drivers to be a little anxious when they buy a used car, you want to save money but also want a safe and reliable vehicle. You may not know what to check for when buying a used car, even if it comes with an inspection report. Common used car concerns are that it has something wrong with it or that it hasn’t been well maintained.

Once you buy a used car in Des Moines, bring the vehicle in for a used car inspection at All Pro Servicenter to make sure everything is looking good! Your friendly and knowledgeable All Pro Servicenter service advisor can tell you if there are current or emerging problems. The peace of mind is well worth the price of the inspection service.

It’s also important for all drivers to get on track with a regular car maintenance schedule and to stick with it. If you don’t have maintenance records for the vehicle, assume the worst and get started with an oil change at All Pro Servicenter. The inspection by All Pro Servicenter that comes with a full-service oil change will reveal any basic problems. Be sure to bring up any specific concerns with your service advisor. A more intense inspection can find hidden problems like body damage or sealer in A/C units which can be major expenses and long-term damage down the road.

Purchasing a Carfax report may let you know if the vehicle’s been in a major accident and give you a title history. You can find out if that ’71 Barracuda really was owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sundays in West Des Moines. But, a car report or even a test drive doesn’t always uncover underlying issues that can be of serious concern. A full inspection is the best way to ensure that your used car receives any necessary car repair and maintenance to keep you driving safely.

After your initial used car inspection, there’s no reason to believe that with proper maintenance your “new” used vehicle won’t last a long time. Give us a call today to schedule your car inspection!
