AutoReportCard: Has your car been graded?
We provide independent third party pre-purchase used car inspections to both buyers and
sellers of used cars to ensure peace of mind to both sides. We want to make the
experience of buying and selling used cars easier and help you avoid buying the wrong car.
We want the process to be faster, more convenient and frankly, more trustworthy by
providing accurate information on the current condition of the car.
Our inspection is comprehensive and detailed using the latest analysis technology,
including electronic diagnostics of the car’s computer.
AutoReportCard vs. Vehicle Inspection Reports:
Vehicle history reports provide information on the car’s history, like the number of owners and
whether an insurance company has ever written it off as salvage. AutoReportCard provides
information on the current actual mechanical/electronic condition of the car.
When purchasing a used car, we think both are important.
National Standardized Inspection Procedure:
Our inspection procedure is standardized across all garages and mechanics so your report
is meaningful when compared to other cars we have inspected and graded.
Comprehensive and In-Depth Inspection:
Our inspection is comprehensive. Unlike other inspectors we place particular emphasis
on mechanical details like the engine and engine computer, not just the body.
The skill and tools necessary to thoroughly inspect a car can best be found in a repair
garage. Amazingly, some inspections don’t even put the car up on a lift to look
underneath and see if it might be dripping oil or transmission fluid.
The best way to get a proper inspection is in a garage.
Our Garages - Mechanical Diamonds in the Rough:
We only use local, highly rated, independent auto-shops that pass our standards to
inspect the car. Not only do we vet the garages ourselves but we also make sure the public
agrees with us. If you know of a good garage, we’d like to hear about them.
Easy to understand Report Card:
The inspection results are summarized in a report that explains the car’s condition at a glance.
There is an overall grade for the car, and individual grades for each important category like
brakes, engine, exterior body, etc. For those who are mechanically inclined, the report also
includes details that satisfy the most particular “car person.”
