If you are looking into purchasing a used vehicle from a dealer, mechanic or from the previous owner, be sure to be smart about it and test drive your possible new car to Clark Automotive today. Call us at 763-784-7944 to schedule an appointment. Normally, we will let you drive right over. When you’re buying a car and you’re not a mechanic it is hard to debate if what the seller says is truthful. A pre-purchase inspection will ensure you are not paying overprice, being scammed or it might show you’re getting one heck of a deal. A lot of the time, spending $90 on a pre-purchase inspection at Clark Automotive can save you more on the overall price you pay. If one of our mechanics puts your vehicle the air and notices something that isn’t a deal breaker but is important, you can then go back to the seller and negotiate price based on your newly found knowledge of the vehicles condition. Clark Automotive will give you an unbiased, professional 3rd party opinion for any vehicle make and model.

- Exterior – Our mechanics will examine at the overall look, condition and quality of the exterior of the vehicle, which includes body dents, scratches or other damages, tire, paint, glass, windshield and mirror conditions.
