Why Should You Pay for a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

Why Should You Pay for a Pre-Purchase Inspection?

Simple. Peace of Mind. Not every Dealership, small or large, will be honest about the condition of a vehicle, most large dealership have guidelines as to what a vehicle should be for "Safe" driving, example if the brake pad has at least 50% of life left then they are deemed "Good". 50% life on brakes, depending on your driving conditions, could cost you a brake job by the 1st year of ownership. The same thing applies to Brake Fluid Flush, Coolant Flush and especially Transmission Fluid unless you know how the vehicle was driven, normal speeds and long drives or fast and aggressive in heavy stop and go traffic, you may end up responsible for transmission due to early deterioration.  The disclosure "AS IS" means either the price was lowered to minimum profit or negative profit (that can be a red flag!) or there’s a problem/problems with the car. If they do not offer you a warranty, there’s a good chance they may be hiding ... read more

WHY DO I NEED TO FIX OIL LEAKS IF I DON'T SEE OIL ON THE GROUND?

Have you ever had a shop tell say that you had an oil leak, but yet you've never seen any oil on your driveway or in your garage? It makes you wonder what they are looking at. If you are a client of USP Euro Car Care, we will send pictures so you can see what we see. Just because an engine or transmission has oil leaking doesn't necessarily mean it will travel and hit the ground.  Sometimes oil leaks are slow seepage vs a constant drip thus coating the sides of the engine or transmission and when enough dirt and debris coats the oil it causes buildup grim. So why do shops recommend repair work when oil is leaking? Because when the oil gets on any rubber components, like control arm bushings, engine mounts, or strut bushings, it will cause the rubber to deteriorate. Other times oil is leaking onto other components such as water pumps or alternators that will cause them to fail. Today in most cars have oil sealing gaskets that are made out of rubber. They do a fantastic jo ... read more
