Don't Buy A Lemon, Have DME Perform A Pre-Buyers Vehicle Inspection
Before Your Next Used Vehicle Purchase

Are you thinking about buying a used car? With our years in the auto industry, we have seen used car buyers get taken advantage time after time. The old story of someone coming in the shop with a big problem after just purchasing a used vehicle is one we hear all too often.

Before you purchase your next used car bring it by DME Auto for a Pre-Buyer Vehicle Inspection. We’ll check the Carfax, road test the car for drive-ability concerns, and perform a series of other checks to ensure your not buying a lemon.

With a DME Auto Pre-Buyer Vehicle Inspection, or any other service, you’ll receive a DME Auto Safety Check. We’ll look inside, outside, under the hood, and underneath the car, then explain the findings and give you a written report.

While you’re there, let us perform a DME Auto Safety Check, which includes a visual check of the following items:

  • Engine air filter
  • Brake fluid
  • Power steering fluid
  • Automatic transmission fluid
  • Coolant/antifreeze
  • We'll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations for replacing these vital fluids and filters
