What is a Mult-Point Inspection and Why Do I Need It?

No matter what type of car you have, over time, different parts can break or stop working properly. In some cases, this can cause major damage to your vehicle and could even make your car dangerous to drive if not fixed immediately. To save yourself some time, and money, it is recommended that you have your car receive a multi-point inspection at least once a year to make sure sure that everything is working properly. And if your car does have some problems that are not yet noticeable, a multi-point inspection will allow you to find and fix the problem before it can cause damage to your vehicle.


What is a Multi-Point Inspection?


A vehicle having a multi-point inspection is the equivalent of a human going to the doctor to get a regular checkup. Health checkups are important for people because just because a person is feeling fine, doesn't necessarily mean that their health is okay. This same rule applies to vehicles as well. When you have an experienced technician give your car a multi-point inspection, you are able to find problems within your vehicle that you may have otherwise not known were there.


During a multi-point inspection, a technician will check certain components on your car. Some of the things that will be checked could include the brake fluid, the oil levels in the engine, the vehicle's battery, air filters, the steering system, fuel system, seat belts, shocks and struts, washer fluid, and more

A technician will thoroughly check your vehicle from top to bottom and inside and out to ensure that everything is working properly to help your car stay in peak condition.


Benefits of Having a Multi-Point Inspection


When many people take their car to a service department for regular maintenance, they decline the multi-point inspection because they feel that it is too time-consuming and not necessary. However, there are actually several benefits to having your vehicle thoroughly inspected.


The main benefit is being able to know what type of maintenance will need to be done to your vehicle in the future. We all know that our cars need to get an oil change and other routine maintenance performed on them, but we may not know that the fluid level, oil levels, and other components need to be replaced. By having a multi-point inspection, you can be better informed about what type of maintenance your car may need in the near future.


Do I Need a Multi-Point Inspection?


If you just purchased your car, multi-point inspections are not necessary because they are usually performed right before the time of purchase. However, if you have had your car for a couple of years, it is definitely a good idea to have your car thoroughly inspected every 3,000 to 5,000 kilometres.
