CAR CARE FINANCING

Have you found that can’t-live-without vehicle on Craigslist or Facebook but it sounds too good to be true? As with any used car or truck, there’s a potential for damage to occur over the years that even the seller might not know about. At Lake Gaston Auto & RV we can inspect a vehicle before you purchase it so you know what kind of repairs you will have to make to it before it’s road-ready. This can help you decide if that ‘deal’ you got is such a good deal or just a distraction.

Who Is Lake Gaston Auto & RV?

We are a full-service auto repair and maintenance facility with credentials to work on import and domestic vehicles, as well as RVs. Our master mechanics provide quality and professional service to ensure a quick and thorough inspection.

Components of a Pre-Purchase Inspection

A Pre-purchase inspection will ensure that any used vehicle you purchase is in the condition that the seller claims it is in. The majority of inspections will include first an external examination of the car-from signs of old dents or scratches to the frame of the vehicle for signs that there had been any damage.

Our technicians will check under the hood and under the vehicle to find possible damage or worn out components of the vehicle including:

  • Belts
  • Radiator
  • Suspension
  • Battery
  • Brakes
  • Fluid levels and condition

The Road Test

Most people would never buy a new vehicle without taking it for a test drive, and the same should be done with a used vehicle. It is helpful to have someone with you when you drive, as there are many things you might miss while your attention is on the road ahead. Plan the test drive just before visiting us for an inspection and take note of things that might need to be checked by our technicians. Listen for clicking noises, look for signs of smoke and take note of the smell of oil or anything else you might be concerned about.

A Pre-Purchase Inspection from the technicians at Lake Gaston Auto & RV will guarantee your purchase of a used vehicle doesn’t become one big mess of repair work and lost money. Give us a call to set up a time for your inspection and make sure you’re getting what you’re paying for.
