Prestige car inspection Melbourne

Buying a luxury car? A prestige vehicle check is a must for any car enthusiast!

Owning a prestige car is a life goal for many people.

Unfortunately, a luxury car also comes with a luxury price tag!

Want to get the best of both worlds? Get one step closer to that dream: buying used is a great way to get the prestige of a luxury car at a fraction of the cost.

However there are a few considerations you should be aware of before your search begins…

What do we look at during a luxury car inspection?

Maintenance and parts

It’s true that older, luxury cars can often cost more to maintain, while parts can also be more expensive.

A prestige car inspection can uncover these problems and alleviate your concerns, so you completely understand any potential costs you might face in the near future.

And knowing these costs gives you the ultimate move when purchasing a car: bargaining power!

Added unique features

As you’d expect, luxury cars are often equipped with more advanced and unique features.

These include electrics like climate control, sat nav (GPS), reverse & forward cameras, steering wheel button controls, and digital displays for vehicle statuses, all of which require checking.

These features are just another aspect that we will need to investigate when we perform your prestige car inspection.

Air bag suspension

Most cars use steel coil springs and shock absorbers, while “air bag suspension” is becoming increasingly popular in luxury cars (and SUVs).

As such, it’s important that we inspect this modern, unique feature.

Common problems include leaking air bags, compressor issues, rust, or moisture damage.

Interiors

When preserved well, leather can last for years, but a poorly maintained car can lead to cracked leather or colour damage.

While not necessarily a deal breaker, a comprehensive interior inspection can help you negotiate a fairer price due to any damage that we can help you uncover.

Many luxury cars are also fitted with high-quality interiors including heated leather seats, as well as other electrics.

Tips for buying a used luxury car

Did you know that a new car’s value can depreciate by an astounding 10% as soon as you drive it out of the dealership?

And that figure doubles to around 21% during its first 12 months!

No wonder around twice as many Australians are purchasing used cars rather than new ones!

While they’re something many people strive to purchase, a higher price tag often makes owning a luxury car an aspirational – but perhaps not so realistic – dream.

It comes as no surprise why people turn to used cars to fulfil their goal on a budget.

Looking to buy a used luxury car? You’re in luck: the market is huge!

However while it might be easy to find your dream car, what’s more difficult to determine if it’s in good working order – and if it isn’t, uncovering what kind of trouble (and cost) you might run into down the track.

Here are some proactive tips you should take on board during your search:

  • Don’t be afraid to negotiate – after all, what’s uncovered in your pre-purchase car check will give you bargaining power!
  • Buying from a dealership? Consider visiting at the end of the month – when they’re trying to meet their quota and may be more receptive to your bargaining skills!
  • Do your homework – check out performance data and reviews from previous models online to get a clearer understanding of the car you’ve got your eye on
  • Check if the car has any factory warranty remaining, or if you will receive a statutory warranty (and make sure you understand what is covered)
  • Ensure you book a pre-purchase car inspection on-site – remember that we come to you!

Don’t be deceived by the shiny exterior – ensure you have a full understanding of the car from all angles, that it fits your budget, and you’ve booked a pre-purchase car inspection.
