At Landmark Auto , we feel that the only one who needs to know your car isn’t new is you. Each vehicle goes through our rigorous 110-point Quality Assurance Inspection, which includes a road test and a thorough check to make sure our high mechanical, detailing and appearance standards are met.

Landmark Auto technicians complete any necessary repairs, maintenance and reconditioning to try to eliminate unnecessary out of pocket expenses for our customers. While all vehicles need on-going maintenance as recommended by the manufacturer, we believe this inspection, combined with ensuring the vehicle has been in no accidents as verified by Landmark Auto and is still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, should give you new-car assurance at a fraction of the cost of purchasing new. Just another way that we deliver that new car feel without the new car price!
