Between amateur auto mechanics and unethical repair shops, too many individuals have been taken advantage of.
When our shop offers a free courtesy inspection, we’re often met with hesitation.
This is due to several myths surrounding car inspections.
To help you make an informed decision, the friendly staff at Christian Brothers Automotive Schertz is busting a few myths.

Myth #1: Only the outside of the vehicle is checked
During a complimentary courtesy inspection at Christian Brothers Automotive Schertz, our experts look over essentially the entire vehicle. Once our ASE-certified technicians have assessed all vital systems inside and outside, the car is placed on a lift to check the underbelly.Fluids, leaks,the suspension system, the front end, axles, steering components, the brake system, tires, battery terminals, belts, hoses, filters and wiper blades are all looked at. While the inspection is mostly visual, we also test drive the car, listening for noises and irregularities.

Myth #3: The inspection will solve all problems
