Cairns Mechanics Federation Automotive, Draper St, Cairns is the place to go for a pre-purchase vehicle inspection on that car you are thinking of buying.


When looking to purchase a car most people rush straight to the test drive, not realising that there can be many hidden faults. The Cairns mechanics at Federation Automotive Cairns can give you a pre-purchase car inspection.

Federation Automotive has been in the car service industry a long time and their car mechanics know all the tricks that many car sellers may try.

The mechanics in the service department at Federation Automotive will check:

The Compliance plate and make sure the identification numbers matches up with all relevant paperwork.
Check that the vehicle mileage is genuine with the vehicle documentation.

Check for signs of excessive wear -- heavily worn interior, pedal rubbers, worn seat belts and buckles, worn armrests and controls, a shiny steering wheel and gear-lever knob? Are these parts too new compared to those around them? Does the driver's door or seat sag?

Check for signs of excessive paint chipping around the front of the car and driver's door, scratches under the door handles, even chips that have been touched up? Check the boot and spare wheel as these are often overlooked.

Look for rust, sun damage and bad car repairs.

Look for oil and fluid leaks.

So for your piece of mind and before you hand over your hard earned cash take that car into Federation Automotive and know you are investing into a road worthy car and not something that will keep swallowing your wages for the next 6 months!
