A pre-purchase inspection on a used vehicle is only as good as the experience level of the mechanic and his knowledge on each and every system. Today's cars are so technologically advanced that most professional automotive technicians specialize only in a few automotive systems.
Most Technicians are ASE Certified. ASE stands for National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (www.asecert.org). Technicians can be tested and certified on any of the 8 general automotive areas. A Technician that has passed at least one area is ASE Certified. A Technician that has certified on all 8 areas is know as an ASE Master Certified Technician.
The Inspectors at Auto P. I. Used Car Inspections are ASE Certified Master Technicians. This means they are certified on every mechanical and electrical component and system. Auto P. I. goes one step further, our ASE Master Technicians are must also be specialists on all structural body and frame components. A technician must be certified in frame systems as well as mechanical and electrical systems to properly inspect today's used vehicles.
To become an Inspector for Auto P. I., a Master Technician must pass a 20 page proficiency test and then complete an intensive 2 week training program. Our Inspectors use their vast experience, combined with our advanced training, to determine existing problems and detect the signs of potential problems.
After the inspection, the Inspector will give you an in depth consultation, in plain English, so you will know the true condition and can make a better buying decision.
Equally as important to experience and training, Auto P. I. inspectors are unbiased. Auto P. I. does not perform any type of repairs, and will not try to sell you aftermarket services or warranties. This means Auto P. I. Inspectors have no conflict of interest when reporting the true condition of the vehicle. As a result, the general public has come to rely on the experience and knowledge of the Auto P. I. Inspectors for accurate pre-purchase vehicle inspections.
