It’s natural to be a little anxious when you buy a used car: you worry that it has something wrong with it or that it hasn’t been well maintained. If it’s possible, bring the vehicle in to Rich’s Auto Center for an inspection. We can tell you if there are current or emerging problems. The peace of mind is well worth the price of the inspection service.
It’s also a good idea to get on track with the maintenance schedule at Rich’s Auto Center and stay on track. If you don’t have maintenance records for the vehicle, assume the worst and get started with an oil change. The inspection by a qualified Fort Wayne service technician that comes with a full service oil change will reveal basic problems. Be sure to bring up any specific concerns with your friendly and knowledgeable Rich’s Auto Center service consultant.
A more intense inspection at Rich’s Auto Center can find hidden problems like body damage and sealer in A/C units which can be major expenses down the road. Purchasing a Carfax report may let you know if the Fort Wayne vehicle’s been in a major accident and give you a title history. You can find out if that ’71 Barracuda really was owned by a little old lady who only drove it to church on Sundays. If you’ve bought well, there’s no reason to believe that with proper maintenance your “new” used vehicle won’t last a long time.
At Rich’s Auto Center, we’ve been providing professional, quality automotive services (including used car inspections) for years.
