Working with cars and their mechanics for the last 20 years has given me a comprehensive
understanding. My father is a mechanic, and therefore I spent most of my childhood helping him repairing cars. I got my first job as an apprentice when I was sixteen years of age. I served many years working on cars and light commercials. Later I went into administering mechanical workshops and car sales.
Many times over the years I have been asked by my friends and colleagues to advise them with their used car purchases. It made me realise that people really need assistance when purchasing used cars. I have noticed that people generally seek help from their local mechanic. Yet, I know how reluctant mechanics are to commit their time off. In addition, no matter how awkward and frustrating it can be to find a mechanic, buyers only get a vague idea about a car they wish to purchase. That is because, most of mechanics are generally trained to repair cars rather than inspect them, they do not apply proper structure when inspecting a vehicle, and thus such inspections are insufficient. Unstructured inspection can leave out critical components and result in purchasing a car that is unreliable and could cost you a lot of money in future repairs.
