What Does the Inspection Involve?

This allows us to perform a more thorough test of your vehicle’s emissions system, and helps us to catch problems that would be difficult to detect otherwise. Otherwise, Items that we always check during the inspection process include:

  • Brake system
  • Steering, front end, and suspension
  • Tires and wheels
  • Electrical system, horn, and defroster
  • Lights and reflectors
  • Glass and mirrors
  • Body, chassis, and bumper height
