MyUsedCarBuddy is an independent vehicle inspection company owned and operated by 5C-Enterprises, Inc., a Florida corporation. We are not associated with any seller, selling dealer or service facility and we do not sell or service vehicles. We are a team of corporate and contractual professionals. The purpose of the pre-purchase inspection is to identify the working order of the vehicle by an experienced professional automotive inspector. The inspector will document items and damages and will test the working condition of the vehicle including the equipment, accessories and powertrain systems. The exterior body panels are checked electronically for repair (where applicable). Computer scan testing on most models. We provide a top-side visual inspection and do not remove the wheels or use a lift to inspect the undercarriage unless it can be provided by the seller. This is not a safety inspection and cannot be used to represent one. All pre-owned vehicles exhibit some wear, scratching and scuffs from normal use for their age and mileage. Damages or malfunctions can occur at any time, and without warning after the inspection visit which may include lot storage and transport services. Some options listed may not exist on all vehicles.  We are not responsible for any leaks or computer fault codes that may develop. The images may contain additional information not itemized in the report and supersede any details within the written report. The images are a vital component of the report; they remain the property of MyUsedCarBuddy and cannot be copied or redistributed without prior consent. The report is valid for no more than thirty days as the condition of the vehicle continues to change. There is no warranty expressed or implied with the report.
