you guys are great! your inspection helped me decide and gave me the needed second opinion on the curent status of the wrangler. i strongly recommend an inspection like this. any seller who doesn't agree to do one is hiding something. seller and myself were present during the inspection, still the inspector did a professional and honest job. many thanks! next car will be checked by you guys again! By Christoph Meier for 1995 Jeep Wrangler in El Segundo, CA
Great, all around writeup, the focus on paint blemishes is appreciated but a little more focus on the mechanical aspects of the car would have been a little better. the general summary was great though, rather than give a checklist of things the inspector gave a general "feel" about the condition of the car, which helps a lot when you're several states away and can only generate opinion based on a coupe dealer photos. Directly addressing a few of the big things i added in the "additional notes" section was great too, since i was mostly worried about those bits. 'twas prompt too, i was fully expecting to have to wait until monday for the report (which would have been perfectly fine) but getting it on saturday is a nice plus! By Joseph Kitchin for 2003 Bmw 540i in Carneys Point, NJ
What a great experience! The inspector, Steven, was always polite, courteous and made every effort to work around my hectic schedule. He inspected the vehicle at my work place, which really saved me so much time and hassle. The inspection was thorough and I now know much more about my purchase than before. Lemon Squad over delivers what others merely promise. Prompt, courteous, efficient, flexible and thorough are all the right words to use when describing my experience with Andy,Steven and the Lemon Squad team. I can now drive my new used vehicle with confidence, knowing what it's current condition is and what I may expect in the future. This was money well spent. Job well done, Lemon Squad! My thanks and my very best to you...Ted Guice By Ted Guice for 2006 Lexus Rx 330 in Palm Springs, CA
Great service, extremely polite staff,and a detailed report with specific pictures of area of concerns. Just hired them again for another, and will do the same in the future. By Victor Elmur for 2005 Bmw X3 in Round Rock, TX
Very thorough, made sure to review the service records as I asked them to, and took photos of the service record summary. Very good job. By David Jones for 2012 Audi A4 in Englewood, NJ
Great service. Caught a big money fix(that the dealership said they are going to fix). I would have never known. The service is very thorough. I would highly recommend it! By Farouk Salem for 2011 Mercedes E350 in Pembroke Pines, FL
Thank you so much for doing such a great job inspecting the car. The price was very low compared to comprable cars and it seemed too good to be true. I appreciate you noting your concerns with the car and I will be using this service in the future. Thank you again. By Gary William for 2013 Lexus Es 350 in Cumming, GA
This is the second time I have used Lemon Squad in the past week. I am very impressed with their customer service and professionalism. I am purchasing from a smaller market, Little Rock, Arkansas so I am looking at surrounding larger metro markets like Dallas and Houston due to needing a very specific car. I can look past normal ware but when it comes to poor body damage repair and multiple small issues that combined would equal substantial expenses that are not seen in dealer pics or on the Carfax this is what I really appreciate from Lemon Squad. The final report I receive is very detailed and I love your grading system! Thank you again for saving me time, money and countless frustrations.

Super Awesome and THOROUGH!!! inspection. I really appreciate this inspectors work! By Melvin Kuo for 2009 Bmw M3 Sedan in Pleasanton, CA
I asked that the wheel base be checked that it was 124.4". It was not in the report. Otherwise I feel the report and pictures were complete and the turnaround time was very good. If I need inspections in the future I will contact this company. By Frederic Bedore for 2008 Jaguar Xj Vanden Plas in Conshohocken, PA
Thanks. Your inspection saved us from buying a car that would have been a considerable disappointment. Your inspector's fair but critical eye is much appreciated. By Howard Cohen for 2007 Saab 9-3 in Parsippany, NJ
I own a transportation company and I'm very impressed with this service. This is my second time utilizing Lemon Squad, and if it's anything like my experience, you will be very pleased. The staff is always polite, professional, and they really care about me making a great purchase. I'm searching for a Mercedes SL55 AMG, and the inspections give me a great piece of mind, they're extremely detailed. I was going to make a purchase out of state. Lemon Squad saved me money on the trip and vehicle. The car had a vast amount of problems that the dealer did not list online. I will continue to use this service for all my vehicle purchases. Thank you, Andy, Jeff and the whole Lemon Squad staff. Larry P. St. Louis Mo. By Larry Purley for 2003 Mercedes-benz Sl55 Amg in Davie, FL
Thank you for the thorough review of the vehicle. The summary was very helpful, and with the related pictures, addressed all of the concerns I had. This inspection was extremely helpful (and necessary) and helping me make my decision to purchase. By Jason Danielson for 2005 Bmw X5 in Mundelein, IL
Inspection was extremely helpful. Items that could be seen in the photos on the listing but were overlooked were identified as potential issues during the inspection. Since this vehicle was out of town, it was great having "boots on the ground" to provide an expert inspection to help me make my purchase decision. I decided to pass on this particular vehicle and I will definitely be using lemon squad again. By William Wilson for 2004 Mini Cooper in Irving, TX
You guys rock! Thank you so much. The dealer didn't tell me that the panel was bent, so I'm glad you did. I really appreciate the timing on this too. The inspector went out the next day and that really made my day. By Shana Soberanis for 2013 Lexus Es350 in Orlando, FL
My father said he had an excellent experience with the man who came out to inspect the vehicle. The inspector was able to come around 6:30pm on Thursday evening and had the report entered and ready for us by Friday. Very professional and courteous as well as pleasant, dad states they chatted for a bit and the inspector apologized for how long things were taking. We have been attempting to complete the process of me purchasing the car from my dad for about a month now and this was by far one of the simplest things we've had to deal with. Inspector called to set up an appointment, was able to come out that same day and had everything ready to go for us in less than 24 hours. I sincerely appreciate the excellent customer service we were provided with in addition to a prompt inspection. Thanks so much! By Kara Moone for 2013 Nissan Cube in New Castle, DE
Excellent service. Great price for a comprehensive review of a used vehicle. I was looking at a 7 year old vehicle that looked to be in excellent shape, but tremendous mileage. I had LS check it out and they confirmed it was in really good shape. Great for piece of mind. By Mike Fitzpatrick for 2007 Ford F150 King Ranch in Sunland, CA
Awesome review! I did not expect such attention to detail be paid to the tiniest of flaws. I really truly appreciate this honest review. I will be using you guys again soon as this vehicle was purchased by someone else. Thank you! By Alexsis Lunn for 2011 Hyundai Sonata in Carrollton, GA
I want to thank the Lemon Squad and their professional staff for the excellent job that they did in evaluating a vehicle that I was dead set on purchasing, based on an Ebay presentation(written description and many photos). As a potential out of state (internet) purchaser, I would have been extremely unhappy with the truck upon its delivery(I was going to have the vehicle shipped from Ohio to my home in Colorado]). Being a very picky person, the condition of the truck would have been totally unacceptable to me. Kudos to the Lemon Squad for saving me a lot of mental anguish and money on a used vehicle purchase. I highly recommend the Lemon Squad. I will use their services again when the need presents itself. William in Colorado By William Eckley for 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 in East Liverpool, OH
My first review with LemonSquad and I am impressed! Great information and super helpful. I appreciate the thorough approach and all of the information makes it easy to decide my next move with this car. Thank you! By Rob Roesler for 2005 Volkswagen Passat in Stamford, CT
I was so pleased with the inspection that I received from Lemonsquad.com. The car was inspected yesterday, the day after I ordered it, and I received the full report this morning. The photos are report were very comprehensive. The inspection was clean except the brakes pulsated suggesting that the rotors may be warped. There was also a small scratch that didn't bother me. The dealer is replacing the rotors and brake pads and I will buy the car tomorrow. Many thanks Lemonsquad!! By Terrell Mcdermid for 2013 VW Touareg in Monroeville, PA
Michael was really nice, called me right away 10 minutes after I made the appointment, and spoke to the representative who was very nice herself. He came early driving all the way from Fredericksburg. Gave him the keys he did his thing, and great turn around on the report which I have already forwarded a day earlier then I thought. Thanks for coming out and taking care of me I appreciate the assistance and top quality service ! - Jason C. By Jason Conner for 2013 Hyundia Veloster Turbo in Reston, VA
