Safety Certificate 2001 Toyota Prius

A newer customer had come in to have an safety inspection done on a 2001 Prius. The inspection passed and it felt like the owner took good care of the car. The owner had found a buyer who, before buying the car, wanted the Toyota dealership to re-inspect the safety (about a month and 1000km after our inspection). After the Toyota inspection the owner was told that there are suspension issues that need to be done before a safety can be issued (approximately over $700 estimated).

Comprehensive inspection 2008 Honda Civic

A regular client of ours decided it was time to replace their car and was looking at a used 2008 Honda Civic (with about 59000km on the odometer) from a Honda dealership. Before going any further, the purpose of this is to highlight the importance of a comprehensive inspection and not to put anyone down. When doing these used car inspections we try our best to assess the cars current status and if there are any problems beyond a safety “certified” vehicle. After checking the car out, there were no obvious problems. The car was very clean and running well.
