What Is a Multipoint Inspection? Our mechanic (or technician) will perform a stem-to-stern inspection to identify other maintenance or repair items you need. Multi-Point Visual Inspection can alert the owner that some parts are worn out, such as wiper blades or brake pads, or that it’s time for normal preventive maintenance, such as replacing the transmission fluid.  Such services can help keep a vehicle in good operating condition.

Multi-Point Visual Inspection covers brakes, tires, belts and hoses, air filters, lights, the suspension, and other components. Customers get a report card that marks items with color codes: green for good to go, yellow to note that repairs or maintenance may be needed soon, or red to mean service is needed right now. Customers often find such Multi-Point Visual Inspection helpful because they alert them that they’ll probably need, say, new brake rotors or tires in the next six months or so.
