Giving a Pre-Owned Car as a Graduation Present? Here’s What to Do First


It's officially graduation season. Are you planning to get your high school or college grad a used car? If so, buying a used car can be complicated. While a car may look great on the outside, it could be very dingy on the inside. It is especially second nature for us, parents, to worry and want the best of the best for our children. To ensure you get what you pay for, we recommend that you get a pre-purchase inspection on the pre-owned vehicle you have your eye on.


At Pro Auto Care, we can assist with your pre-owned used vehicle inspection. The process can ensure that the vehicle you want to gift is in a proper and safe condition for your kid to ride in. Our certified technicians will help identify any underlying concerns and provide you with a thorough report of any repairs that we feel are necessary. Our examination is also digital, with photos of issues found, and we can give you a copy once we complete the inspection.


After the pre-purchase vehicle inspection, we can help you decide whether the car is worth it—or whether you should simply step away. We will continue to put your vehicle on file along with our inspection results, so you can effortlessly keep a record of what we discovered was needed with the car during the pre-purchase inspection. A Littleton pre-owned vehicle inspection will give you peace of mind that you are making the right choice financially for your little one.


In addition to the inspection, we also recommend that you also conduct outside research. With all the available resources you have, we hope you stay informed and make smart decisions to avoid extra costs.
