Hey all,

I recently closed a deal on my first car (yay!) and need to have it inspected before we can transfer the title. However I've heard soooo many horror stories about this and could really use some recommendations on where to go.

I'm not looking for a place to overlook any actual problems with the car. I'm just looking for a place that WON'T tell me the wipers are bad when I just replaced them a few months ago.

There HAS to be a half honest place somewhere around here right? Here being Baltimore city & surroundings though I live in Owings mills so that area is preferable.

Thanks for the advice!

I have had 2 cars inspected at Mr. Tire in Owings Mills; one of which was 10 years old (but in good shape). They didn't try to rip me off on either car. I have had my car serviced there several times as well and the manager there strikes me as an honest guy. They are on Reisterstown Road where it intersects Owings Mills Blvd.

Got it, thanks for the reply - they're pretty close to me. Did they ever try to fail you because of tires?

Actually no, with my older vehicle they told me that I would need new tires within the next 5000 miles or so but they passed inspection. I ended up replacing them within six months so, I was surprized that I didn't get dinged on them. The guy that manages that shop seems very honest. I had taken my car to another shop for work and was told I needed brakes. I then took it to Mr. Tire and had the brakes checked and they told me they were fine so, I don't think they charge you for unnecessary work.
