  • Air filters
  • Battery health
  • Belts and hoses
  • Brake fluid and other brake components
  • Chassis components
  • Coolant
  • Drive axle, transmission, and engine
  • Engine oil
  • Exhaust components

After the multi-point inspection, you will receive a color coded list of the items that the technicians has inspected.

When Should You Schedule A Multi-Point Inspection?

Most technicians recommend getting a multi-point inspection once a year, kind of like your yearly physical at the doctors. Even if nothing seems to be wrong with your vehicle, it's best to have it checked out to see what potentially lies under the hood. A multi-point inspection is also a good idea before you head out on a long road trip. Nothing makes a road trip worse than car trouble, especially if it could have been avoided by being fixed before you left.
