How Much Does An Used Car Inspection Cost?


A used car inspection generally ranges from $100-$250 and can cover from 50-200 points in the vehicle inspection. Here at Uchanics we do not carry the expensive overhead of a shop, so that allows us to pass the savings on to you.



A pre-purchase inspection/ used car inspection is a vehicle inspection performed by a licensed mechanic, who will give the vehicle a thorough inspection to determine if it is in good condition in three important areas-

How it looks (no rust, dents etc)
How it performs (no mechanics defects)
How safe it is (no critical damage)

During your used car inspection, your mechanic will pinpoint any existing conditions and highlight potential issues that could arise in the future. They also make sure any previous damage has been properly repaired. By learning more about what's happening under the hood, you could end up more confident that you’re making a great purchase, move onto another vehicle, or negotiate a drop in price or have the repairs done before you buy the car.

Why You Need a Pre-Purchase Inspection

  • Provides a 150 point comprehensive end-to-end evaluation for your vehicle

  • Saves you thousands in unexpected future repairs.

  • Puts you in the “driver's seat” so you have more control.

  • Gives you peace of mind and confidence in your buying choice.

  • Gets you the maximum value for your money.

Do You Really Need A Car Inspection?

If you want to drive with greater peace of mind, knowing you’re unlikely to have any surprise breakdowns or repair bills, a pre purchase car inspection is definitely for you.

While dealers, private dealers or sellers, will often give you a history report, they don’t have to report on all the issues that may cause problems in the future. Additionally, not all vehicle accidents are reported, meaning there is no paper trail if the parties involved decided to settle the matters between themselves. Only a pre-purchase inspection can uncover these hidden and other issues so you don’t end up with a costly surprise.

Veteran personal finance columnist at the Toronto Star, Ellen Roseman says, “it's smart to pay for a vehicle inspection by an independent mechanic before signing a purchase agreement. Its worth every penny to get an objective view of the car's condition”
