  • Carvana Pre-Purchase Inspection

    Posted by Tom Ham on February 3, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    If I understand it correctly, one cannot get a pre-purchase used car inspection on a car from Carvana.

    Our general rule of thumb for customers is that if you cannot inspect BEFORE buying, regardless of who the seller is, don’t even think about it.

    We have not yet run into a Carvana situation. Looking to see if anyone else has and is it true about no inspection before purchase.

    I just had my first carvana car here from a good customer for an inspection. Carvana through a third party was ready to pay out $3,000 in repairs that I recommended on the BMW. It would have costed the customer nothing. They were ready to pay for the maintenance that I also recommended via CBS.  The customer decided that they didn’t want a car that needed that much work and were worried about future repair costs so they sent the car back to carvana. I’m not sure if carvana reimbursed the customer for my diagnostic charges.
