Whenever you bring your vehicle into a maintenance center for service, you should always ask your technician to complete a thorough multi-point vehicle inspection. Most reputable service centers will do this for you at no extra charge, so there is no excuse not to have it done. After all, it is in your best interest and the best interest of your vehicle to know exactly what is going on.
While you may know that you are due for your next oil change, you may not be aware that your brake pads are getting on the low side or that your alignment is slightly off. You could even have a crack in your timing belt that you don’t know about, which could put you at risk of engine failure and the need for more serious repairs.
When your technician performs a multi-point vehicle inspection, they’ll examine all of the major components of your engine. They’ll also put together a detailed report of their findings for you. This way, you can refer back to their notes in the future so you know what to expect in terms of ongoing maintenance and repairs. Not only is this great for your peace of mind, but it can also help you with budgeting for the necessary repair costs while also preventing any major surprises down the line.
Experienced automotive technicians know exactly what they are looking for when they do vehicle inspections, so the service shouldn’t take long to complete at all. Your technician will take a look at all of your vehicle’s most important components, including the brakes, transmission, timing and fan belts, air filters, fluid levels and more. They’ll also test your lights, air conditioner, locks, electronics and other aspects to ensure everything is working correctly.
As they go, they’ll make note of the current condition of each component to include in their report. If they notice anything that requires immediate or future attention, they’ll note that in the report as well. This way, you’ll know exactly what repairs to expect and when they will need to be completed. Updating your inspection report at each service will help you stay on top of the ongoing maintenance to keep your vehicle at its best for many years to come.
