I live in Florida, but found a car I was interested in purchasing in Arlington, VA. Looked at the various reviews of shops in Arlington in Judysbook.com and selected Baird Automotive to perform a pre-purchase inspection. Even though the owner (Joey) has his own list of items he goes through, I sent him my own list of all the things I wanted him to look at. For $90, Joey performed an outstanding inspection, and then spent about 20 minutes going through every issue he found. Highly recommended.
