Are you looking to buy a new used vehicle? Before you add a new car to your family, schedule an appointment at Next Generation Auto for a pre-purchase inspection. At our auto repair shops in Baldwin and Hudson, our auto mechanics will perform a thorough inspection.

Regardless of where your potential vehicle is coming from — whether from a dealer or an individual — you should enlist the help of a qualified auto mechanic to perform a bumper-to-bumper inspection. At Next Generation Auto, we perform exactly that. Called a used vehicle inspection, we will examine both the interior and exterior of the car. Our technicians will take it for a test drive to ensure the vehicle isn’t pulling a certain way or making odd noises, and is driving completely safe. We will also inspect the tires and undercarriage. This pre-purchase inspection is truly a bumper-to-bumper inspection, as we want you to maximum negotiating strength.

We are fortunate Baldwin and Hudson vehicle owners are taking note of our efforts to provide exceptional auto repair, pre-purchase inspections included. Take a look at this recent five-star review from one of our happy customers about their experience at Next Generation Auto:

“I’d been looking for a local auto repair shop that I could trust to be honest and do good thorough work. I found Next Generation through a mailing I received. I took my car in for an oil change and inspection as I was going to sell the car. Next Generation did a great job!! They produce great documentation showing the results of everything they inspected along with recommendations on what needs to be addressed now vs. holding off and addressing later. My vehicle came back in great condition with all the items I requested completed. I’ve definitely found my new repair shop!” — Lean M.

I went there for the first time the other day. I was impressed with the staff and their knowledge. They brought me out in the shop and showed me what was wrong with my vehicle! Definitely will be going back!

They were able to take a look at my car right away. I really appreciate the detail that Steve was able to provide. He explained the repairs required and the cost was reasonable; actually better than I expected. I will consider them for future work.

Melissa at the front desk is so incredibly friendly over the phone and in person. I appreciated the overall car inspection. It was so nice that it could be sent via text message to make it even more convenient. Overall, it was a excellent experience with such nice people!

Had a great experience here in the Fall of 2019. Head gaskets replacements in our Duramax… Since it was a huge job, I researched shops all over the twin cities area and Next Gen didn’t disappoint. Worked with Melissa and Cody and felt well informed through the whole process; they helped us identify other opportunistic items to work on. Very responsive to all my questions. They provided us a loaner car through the couple weeks our truck was in the shop. The truck has worked well over the past few months. Great work, i’m grateful to have a reliable truck again during these odd times.
