Understanding Car Inspections

A car inspection involves a meticulous examination of your vehicle and its components to assess their functionality and condition.

During the inspection, our specialists thoroughly inspect various aspects of your vehicle, ranging from fluid levels and tire condition to brakes and battery health.

  4. Wheels: Examining wheels for damage, cracks, or misalignment that may affect handling.
  5. Wiper Blades: Assessing the condition of wiper blades and replacing them if they show signs of wear or damage.
  6. Lights: Verifying the functionality of headlights, taillights, brake lights, and turn signals for optimal visibility on the road.
  7. Belts and Hoses: Checking belts and hoses for signs of wear, cracks, or leaks that could lead to mechanical failures.
  8. Shocks and Struts: Inspecting shocks and struts for signs of wear or damage that may affect ride comfort and stability.
  9. Brakes: Evaluating brake pads, rotors, and calipers to ensure proper braking performance and responsiveness.
  10. Battery: Testing the battery's voltage and assessing its overall health to prevent unexpected failures.
