3 Car Inspection Myths Busted By The Reliable Technicians At Our Clermont Auto Repair Shop

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

Between unethical mechanics and amateur auto repair shops, too many drivers have been taken advantage of.

When our store offers a free courtesy inspection, we’re often met with skepticism.

This is due to several unfortunate misconceptions surrounding car inspections. To clear up some of the frustration, the dedicated staff at Christian Brothers Automotive Clermont has decided to bust a few myths. Here are 3 myths about our courtesy inspections.

Myth #1: Only the outside of the vehicle is checked

During a free courtesy inspection at Christian Brothers Automotive Clermont, essentially the entire car is looked over. Once our ASE-certified technicians have evaluated all crucial systems inside and outside, the vehicle is placed on a lift to inspect the underside.

Fluids, leaks, the brake system, tires, battery terminals, belts, hoses, the suspension system, the front end, axles, steering components, filters and wiper blades are all checked. The courtesy inspection is mostly visual, but our technicians also test drive the car, listening for noises and irregularities.

Myth #2: The inspection is used to push unnecessary services

Our dedicated staff is constantly clearing up the misconception that inspections are a tool to sell customers parts and services they don’t need. Actually, the courtesy inspection is our way of providing a list of needs and prioritized vehicle information to you, the customer.

This helps drivers plan out expenses and spread out services to better fit a budget. Our goal is to give as much information as possible so you can make an informed decision. Our job is not to pressure customers into buying unnecessary replacements.

Myth #3: The inspection will solve all problems

The courtesy inspection only finds issues producing some kind of symptom. A common misconception is that inspections can find every current problem and forecast future issues. Guests often ask, “When you were checking everything a few weeks ago, why you didn’t tell me the AC was about to go out?”

Without a symptom indicating a problem, the inspection cannot predict future trouble. Despite its limitations, the inspection is complete and provides a great basis for scheduled maintenance services and immediate needs.

Our specialists offer a free courtesy inspection to every car brought into Christian Brothers Automotive Clermont for any service. This thorough visual inspection will bring to light fluid leaks, worn-out parts and irregularities in the engine.
