Do I Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

If you're currently looking to purchase a used vehicle, a pre-purchase inspection may be a service worth getting. This type of service, offered by Bud's Auto Repair & Transmission, serves to help you understand the actual condition of a pre-owned vehicle. Often, a seller will declare no issues with the car, and a pre-purchase inspection can help confirm whether their claim holds true or not. All in all, a pre-purchase inspection will help dictate whether or not the car is a good investment. 

Bud's Auto Repair & Transmission is your number one source for honest car services and professional pre-purchase vehicle assessments. 

A pre-purchase inspection will:

  • Help you determine the value of the vehicle

  • Uncover any underlying issues or needed repairs

  • Identify any error codes

  • Recognize faulty or deteriorating parts

  • Give you an overall view of the vehicle's condition

  • Provide you with an estimate of recommended services that the car may need in its imminent future

When you bring the vehicle to our auto repair shop, our professionals will perform a series of tests to understand the car. We can even check to see if the vehicle has ever been in an accident. Another crucial part of a pre-purchase inspection is running engine diagnostics. We also do a complete bumper-to-bumper check and test drive the vehicle to figure out if the car needs any repairs soon. 

Once you get the full report from us, you can use your findings to make a more educated purchase decision because you'll know the financial burden that the car may bring. You'll also be able to return here knowing what repairs are needed and the costs of getting them done if you decide to buy the car. 


You can have confidence that our certified technicians always provide honest and accurate vehicle inspections. If you need a pre-purchase inspection in the Marysville, WA, area, please bring your vehicle to our auto repair shop soon.
