Southampton Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections

Navigating the bustling streets of Southampton, PA, in search of the perfect used car can be an exhilarating journey. The used car buying process can be fun, but it is important that you know about any potential problems before they occur. This can potentially steer you away from a bad buy or build confidence in a good one – Auto Tronics specializes in Southampton pre-purchase vehicle inspections to help you build confidence in your purchase.

When it comes to buying a used car, the term “as-is” can be more than a simple forewarning – it’s a siren call for due diligence. 

The allure of a seemingly impeccable car at an affordable price might con you into overlooking some underlying problems (or encourage you not to go looking for them in the first place). 

This can quickly convert what first seemed like a sweet deal into a sour investment. 

Here at our Southampton-based shop, Auto Tronics, we understand that the key to a happy car ownership journey begins with a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection. We make sure that every purr and roar of your potential ride is assessed – and accounted for.

Whether it’s a bright red sports car or a trusty family sedan, your dream car may hold an unpleasant history that only a thorough inspection can unravel. 

That’s why pre-purchase vehicle inspections are pivotal in helping you to avoid the plot twists of costly repairs – and giving you peace of mind along with your new purchase.

Our Comprehensive Inspection Process

Secrets are fun when you’re talking about birthday gifts and surprise parties – not when it comes to buying a used car. That’s where our Southampton car inspection process comes in. 

From the engine and transmission to the braking system, suspension, and electrical components, our inspection process and car history check leaves no stone unturned. 

We scrutinize the structural integrity, fluid levels, tire conditions, and overall performance to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your vehicle’s overall health and functionality.

​​Our 120 point inspection is nothing short of meticulous, providing a deep dive into every aspect of the vehicle:

  • Exterior: From bumper to bumper, we scrutinize paintwork for signs of a rushed respray, assess body panels for hidden damage, inspect glass for chips that could spider, analyze lights for dimming issues, and so much more. We’ll even make sure that tires and wheels aren’t just for show and the tread and mechanics are both sound.
  • Interior: The space you’ll occupy while driving around should resonate with comfort – not hide concerns that will rear their ugly head as soon as you drive off the lot. We check seats for springs that have seen better days, upholstery for the stories that only spilled drinks can tell, controls and electronics for their functionality, and, of course, the dashboard for anything that looks amiss.
  • Under the Hood: As you likely know, it’s what beats beneath the hood that really counts. Our thorough inspection under the hood thoroughly evaluates the engine’s health, fluid levels and potential leaks, the integrity of belts and hoses, and the myriad other components that keep a car running smoothly.
  • Underneath: The unseen shouldn’t be overlooked, either. We examine the frame’s fortitude, the suspension’s resilience, the brake’s responsiveness, and the exhaust’s emissions to make sure everything is functioning in tip-top shape. 
  • Test Drive: Feel is everything, and while you can’t beat the experience of taking a car for a test drive yourself, we’ll give it a whirl to make sure everything is functioning properly. We take each car we inspect to the streets to ensure performance meets expectations, the handling is tight, and all systems are a go.
  • Full System Scan: Invisible gremlins in the electronics and computers are no match for our diagnostic prowess. Should they try to hide, we’ll seek them out with our full system scan.
