Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection Service in Indianapolis, IN

Whether you're planning on amassing six-digit mileage on your car, only intending to keep it a couple of years, or leasing it, regular maintenance is the key to keeping it running in optimum condition. And that goes for every component on the vehicle, tires, brakes, ignition, suspension, etc, etc - in short, every part including the interior. But if you want to be even more pro-active, you can go one step more, and have a multi-point inspection done on your car or truck.

When Should You Schedule a Multi-point Vehicle Inspection?

Anytime is a good time, but there can be certain events that warrant an inspection.

Before a Road Trip

Breaking down in the middle of nowhere while on a family vacation may make for nostalgic reminiscences at holiday dinners twenty years from now, but when it happens in the present with a car full of young children, it's no laughing matter.  

Before Purchasing a Used Car

Whether you've found it on a dealer lot, in a classified ad, or are getting it from a friend, looks can be deceiving. What looks like a car in perfect condition may actually be biding its time toward needing repairs. Whether they will entail a domino effect of small jobs or a big bucks replacement of a major component, it's best to know up front. If you decide to go through with buying it, you can use the knowledge a multi-point inspection gives you either to bargain down the price or request the owner or dealer make the repairs before finalizing the sale.

If you've been maintaining your car all along, a multi-point inspection, at most, may suggest a few better safe than sorry repairs, or it may reveal no problems at all,  giving you a thumbs-up, all systems go. At any rate, you'll set off at peace with the world, at least as far as your car is concerned.
