Hmmm ... I've never done one *before* buying the car. I guess it has to do
with the price ... in my case, the cars I buy are cheap enough that I have
to snap them up before someone else comes along! Based on my friend's
experience with pre-purchase inspections by mechanics -- most of which
failed to turn up what I consider to be rather obvious problems -- I'm not
sure it's money well spent unless you don't do any of the work on your cars
yourself and/or have no mechanical aptitude. YMMV, of course...
