West Chicago Pre-purchase inspection

I'm in San Francisco, but thinking about getting a 2011 Cayenne from a dealer in West Chicago (Westmont). Can anyone recommend a trustworthy independent shop to do an inspection? I'm uneasy about buying sight unseen (although did it twice before with zero issues), so inspection is probably a good idea.

Thanks a lot!

you can have them do the inspection, I wouldn't worry about that dealership. But if you want a 3rd party you can hire these guys:

Do you mean that the dealership selling the car can also do the inspection? I am not an expert, but that does sound like a conflict of interest situation to me. Is that something that people normally do?
