Quality, in-depth, pre-purchase, used car inspections are one of the many ways Brown Motor Works has earned the trust of motorists in Northeast Columbia. The inspection includes a complete diagnostic scan tool report showing all the diagnostic trouble codes, plus the visible observations of our auto mechanics, so you know the actual issues the used car has before you commit — inside and out.

Brown Motor Works believes you deserve an accurate assessment of the vehicle you are considering for your family’s reliable transportation — whether the used vehicle is 3 years old or 12 years old. No used car is trouble-free, so expect there to be some level auto repair and service needed. By ensuring you know the exact condition of the used car you are considering, with your permission, Brown Motor Works provides you with documentation that allows you to be fully informed beforehand and better positioned to negotiate at the car dealership or with a private seller. Our customers know that their safety is our top priority, and it shows:

“They've always treated me right and taken good care of my Volvo. Their shuttle service really saves the day. Last but not least... they are THE place to go rather than the dealership!” -- Mary Ann H.
