Thinking About Buying a New Car?
Nothing feels better than slipping behind the wheel of a new car. The steering wheel feels sleek under your hands. The mirrors need adjusting from the measurements of the previous, shorter owner, and the click of the seatbelt rings in your ears. After turning the ignition, the engine roars to life, and the gear shifter fits your hand like a glove. You exit the parking
space, and put the car in drive.
As you jam out and sing every lyric to the song on the radio, you click the button to roll the windows down. You crave the wind blowing through your locks and the sun’s warmth on your skin. The window is stuck. Whatever. No big deal. The radio still sounds great.
Between songs blaring out of your new car’s speakers, you hear a strange clunking sound, unlike one you’ve ever heard before. But, the car is still rolling, so it must be fine. A few miles down the road, a strange knocking noise comes from the front of the vehicle. The disturbing noises that did not sound during the test drive distract you. The temperature gauge continues to rise unnoticed. Suddenly, white smoke pours through the engine compartment of the vehicle, and the engine overheats.
Your new, used car leaves you stranded on the side of the road.
Our Pre-Purchase Inspection Saves You from Inheriting a Headache.
Purchasing a used car comes with risks, especially if you do not have a lot of automotive experience. Technical terms and the amount of components to check before buying a vehicle can feel overwhelming. Both parties just want to get the best deal possible, so biases come into play. The buyer wants to leave with a good deal, and the owner wants the most profit for the vehicle, despite some of its flaws. A killer deal and the excitement built around buying a car often clouds judgement, and small warning signs get overlooked by the buyer.
At Hopewell Tire & Auto Repair, we offer a Pre-Purchase Inspection that serves to protect used car buyers from inheriting another person’s problem. We want people to know about potential trouble before buying a vehicle. The buyer should never have to find out preexisting mechanical problems such as broken window regulators, transmission trouble, worn idler pulleys, or engine overheating after purchasing a new, used vehicle. Your new, used car should be your new daily driver, not a headache that leaves you stranded on the side of the road.
Our Pre-Purchase Inspection includes a comprehensive inspection of the entire vehicle so that the potential buyer can make the best purchasing decision. We look under the hood and check the battery, the engine, the radiator, and the tune up components. Our auto technicians check all of the belts, fluids, and hoses for wear and tear and replacement needs. We make sure to check the lights and the condition of the wiper blades. The tires, wheels, brakes, suspension system, and the exhaust system receive a thorough inspection.
At Hopewell Tire & Auto Repair, we make sure that the customer is an informed buyer before leaving the shop. We would hate for your new car to be an inherited list of problems. A $25 Pre-Purchase Inspection can save thousands of dollars and headaches in the long-run. Never be disappointed by a used car again. Enjoy purchasing a thoroughly inspected, road ready, reliable vehicle.
