LEMON SQUAD USED CAR INSPECTORS
THE NATION'S LEADER IN PRE-PURCHASE AUTO INSPECTIONS
We service all the major metro areas in California, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose, San Diego and everything in between.
Cruising down Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills would not be quite so chic if your classic roadster broke down, or if that beautiful new car you bought from some guy in downtown Los Angeles turned out to be a lemon. What if your brakes gave out while you were parked on Lombard Street in San Francisco while taking a photo of “The Rock” in the distant bay? You have got to know what you’re getting into when buying a used vehicle! From Sand Diego to San Luis Obispo or San Jose to San Bernadino, don’t be caught driving your new used car without first getting a reliable used car inspection service to check it out.
The Lemon Squad has one purpose: to prevent you from spending your hard-earned money on a lemon. Don’t get ripped off!
Every used car inspection we do – whether a current or classic model - includes a thorough, bumper-to-bumper sight inspection, with a detailed report that includes 20 to 50 photos. Each of our used car inspections goes well beyond the 155-point standard inspection, giving you a comprehensive evaluation of every component of the vehicle, both physical and mechanical.
The Lemon Squad is trained to look for bumps, dents and dings, check the paint condition, and look for evidence of body filler and any sign of a previous collision. We are on high alert for rust, corrosion, fluid leaks and any other obvious signs of sub-standard repairs.
No used car inspection can be truly complete without a test drive of the vehicle. Our inspection includes a four-to-five mile test drive, during which we can evaluate all aspects of the vehicle’s engine condition: transmission, brakes, drive train and suspension, as well as steering performance and vehicular noises. We evaluate the ride quality, drive line and wheel/tire vibration, wind noises and do a visual inspection for collision, flood or corrosion, functionality of cruise control, air conditioning, heater and all electrical accessories. Air conditioning is not checked with diagnostic equipment or for amount of refrigerant in system - only for visual inspection of compressor operation and visual leaks noted.
