At EchoPark®, each vehicle goes through our rigorous 190-point Quality Assurance Inspection, which includes a road test and a thorough check to make sure it meets our high standards for operation, detailing, and appearance.

EchoPark® technicians complete any necessary repairs, maintenance, and reconditioning, to eliminate unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses for our customers. While all vehicles need ongoing maintenance as recommended by the manufacturer, we believe our inspection, combined with the existing manufacturer's warranty and our Accident-Free guarantee as verified by CarFax, 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!
