Different types of Inspections
- Trip inspections
If you’re planning on taking your vehicle on a long trip, it is important that you get it inspected before your trip. Before driving, our certified technicians will make sure your tires are safe enough to drive on, ensure that the suspension and brakes are working properly, and other mechanical functions such as your wipers are in good condition.
- Maintenance inspections
No matter how often you drive your vehicle, it is important that you get regular maintenance inspections. These inspections ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly and can prevent future, more costly repairs to be done. Depending on your manufacturer, your vehicle has a set schedule to follow. During these inspections, basic things like your tire tread and pressure, shocks and struts, wipers, fluid levels, and battery are all inspected.
- Safety and emissions inspections
These inspections are ordered by the state that you reside in to ensure that your vehicle is safe to operate and is not emitting excessive pollutants into the environment. Different inspections and when to get them inspected depend on each state’s regulations. However, these usually include basic maintenance inspections and smog checks.
