Used Car Pre Purchase Inspection Center in Alexandria VA

Are you looking to buy a used car? If so, bring it to Import Auto Service, Inc. for an impartial vehicle inspection. We can help you to make an educated buying decision. We will thoroughly inspect the car and let you know whether it is a smart buy or not.

Question: How much is the car worth?
Answer: The best way is to check the blue book value on the Internet at Kelly Blue Book or Edmund Auto. We have a blue book in our shop and can give you the estimated value of your car.

Question:What kind of things can you spot that should worry me?
Answer: We will drive your car and lift it to spot things like excessive oil leakage, anti-freeze leaks, wear and tear on brake shoes, damage from previous accidents, body panel rust, damaged or worn parts like muffler or CV boots, or check alignment for tire wear.

If you find some problem does this mean I should not purchase this vehicle?
Answer: Not necessarily! We will prepare an estimate for you the things your car needs including parts and labor. You can decide if it is a good buy for yourself.

Question: Can I find out whether this car is Lemon.
Answer: You can go to the LemonBusters web site and pay a nominal fee to find out whether this car is Lemon or not.
