Our 27-point inspection is standard with any service

It's common for auto repair shops to offer 10-point inspections. However, at Plantation, we believe it's worth the extra time and effort to do a more comprehensive inspection and it's standard with all service, including oil changes.

Our inspections are designed to do two thing:

  • Save you money by finding concerns that can be corrected before more expensive damage is done
  • Locate an potential safety problems or concerns.

The more you know about your car's condition, the better able you are to assess problems and issues. Sometimes, we'll identify a pressing issue that makes the care unsafe but usually, we'll find something that needs fixing in the near-term and we can advise you on how long you might be able to continue before risking serious vehicle damage.

The 27 Point Inspection includes:

  • Check interior lights and gauges
  • Check windshield washer fluid font and rear
  • Check all exterior lights for proper operation, (front, rear, and side)
