As provided above here in this article piece, the U-car Grading Report is an official certificate issued by the officials from Goo KANTEI – which is certified without any prejudices, influences along the process. All inspections and certificates being issued are, however, done in a strictly fair manner that goes according to the standards set by the Japanese Automotive Appraisal Association.

In this certificate, consumers will be able to learn from the unique star-ratings given that is marked at the Exterior/Interior tab. By following the common settings stipulated by the industry, each star does play a pivotal role on how the vehicle is guaranteed or rated in condition (on the given date).
