I have waited a week or so before writing this review, just in case Danny missed anything. He didn't! We were buying a car located in Yorkshire when we live in Surrey, so it was essential that the inspection was thorough, professional and error-free. It was all of that. He arrived just before the allotted time and immediately had the bonnet up to check that the engine was cold (a lot of problems can be hidden with a warm engine). He took around 2 hours to give the car a really thorough going over (including checking for any fault codes in the on-board computers) and could find no faults, apart from a few stone chips on the bonnet. The dealer had mentioned an intermittent minor fault with a noisy starter motor and he tried very hard to replicate the problem, starting the car more than 30 times, without any problem showing itself. The dealer (whom I should also give 5 stars - JCT32 Autocentre in Castleford) was very impressed with how thorough Danny was. Danny phoned me as soon as he had finished his inspection and

Disapppointed. Having paid for the premium pre purchase inspection level of service I found myself most unsatisfied and with no confidence in the report sent to me as the engineer gave only 62 minutes from the possible 150 mins to examine the C6 I was considering for purchase. Having used carexamer on two previous occassions with no issues I found myself very disappointed on this occassion paying the premium cost but receiving a very basic level of the inspectors time.

Better then possibly expected.

Process for booking was good. Staff pleasant and polite. However the objective facts are when I went to pick up the car to drive it home, the driver's heated seat didn't work, the heater itself didn't work, the wheel alignment was miles out (pulling to the left badly and steering wheel way off centre) and the final nail in the coffin was 22 miles into my ownership the engine let go, stranding me on the motorway with the coolant being dumped onto the hard shoulder. I may as well have stood in the rain and torn up £168. Appreciate that perhaps the engine issue may have let go after the inspection but there is no way the alignment, heater or heated seats failed between the test and when I arrived. The report shows all the above were fine along with the interesting fact that the auto/kickdown was working. It was a manual. Seems like a lot of copy/paste rubbish. So this is by any objective analysis a very poor service and not worth it.

Carexamer are great! Very good communication and a fair and accurate inspection of the car. Really easy to deal with. Would definitely use again.

Excellent all round. Danny clearly knows his stuff and communicates fantastically well. It helps that he told me exactly what I wanted to hear 😎. Very pleased with the whole experience.
