It is important to protect your investment when you spend a lot of money. When buying a home, you ask questions about the residence and neighborhood, just as you inquire about vehicle history and reputation of the auto dealer in St. Charles before purchasing a car. This is even more applicable when you are looking to buy an auto “as is.”

“As is” used VW cars for sale or any other make have a required inspection at the dealer prior to putting them into the sales inventory. The condition must be rated as safe to drive through written documentation and should be available for all prospective buyers. Even with this certification, it is best to have your potential purchase appraised by a mechanic whom you choose. This valuable service will likely cost a little but can help you in the long run. A knowledgeable technician is usually able to locate problem areas that may have been overlooked. Obtaining a copy of the vehicle history will also let you know if regular maintenance has been conducted on schedule or if the vehicle has been crashed.
