150+ Point Inspection

150+ POINT INSPECTION

WE GO OVER EVERY INCH
SO YOU CAN COVER EVERY MILE.

You might not worry much about the condition of your hose clamps or the vacuum system or the brake pads. You'll never have to, either, with one of our GM Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles. Before they reach the sales floor, each one of our vehicles is meticulously looked over by a licensed mechanic. That means by the time you look at them, every single vehicle has passed our painstaking 150+ point inspection.
