About CAR MRI

CAR MRI is a third party that will provide an honest,impartial and transparent vehicle inspection. CAR MRI is not a repair service provider; accordingly, we have nothing to gain by diagnosing a problem. Our pursuit is to provide car owners and used car buyers with every detail about the car's condition before they buy, sell or hit the road.
