Traditionally, purchasing a used or pre-owned vehicle has been filled with pitfalls and fraught. Fortunately, ABS Unlimited Auto Repair offers a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection designed to provide you with superior insight into the mechanical functionality of a vehicle. During the pre-purchase inspection at ABS Unlimited Auto Repair, our ASE-Certified mechanic will perform a detailed assessment to best understand:

  • The cosmetic condition of the vehicle
  • The mechanical condition of the vehicle
  • The safety conditions of the vehicle


We leverage the latest and most advanced electronic diagnostic equipment to reveal maintenance shortcomings and other hidden conditions. However, electronic vehicle diagnostics is only the beginning. Our experienced
mechanic will place your vehicle on a hydraulic lift to dig deeper into the vehicle. Specifically, we will check for broken components, leaks, and more. Then, we will perform a detailed road test where we will:

  • Listen for any awkward noises,
  • Check the braking components,
  • Test steering and suspension components,
  • Conduct specific vehicle pressure tests,
  • And more.


Once complete, we will provide you with a comprehensive digital report that includes pictures and video when applicable. You can use your report as a bargaining tool with the dealership or as a determining factor for whether you purchase said vehicle or not. Our
mechanic goes the distance during every pre-purchase inspection, so your newly-purchased pre-owned vehicle can go even further.
