What is the Importance of a Multi-Point Inspection?

Cars are only as good as their maintenance schedule. No matter what the age of your vehicle, a multi-point inspection ensures all the critical mechanical needs are regularly addressed.

The following looks at exactly what’s involved in such an inspection/service and why it’s one of the most vital elements of car care.

What’s included in a multi-point inspection?

A multi-point inspection checks all the mechanical parts of a car. Many of these are designed to wear over time. This means that, when the time is right, they need to be replaced to ensure the vehicle continues to perform at an optimal level. 

The inspection includes the following: 

  • A full brake system check: Pads, discs/drums, rotors, calipers, fluid lines… The complete braking system will be assessed for wear. Should any elements need replacing you’ll be advised, and you can give the go-ahead for the work to be carried out.
  • Hoses and belts: The moving parts of an engine become worn during use from friction, heat, and exposure to the elements. This means they have a finite lifespan and need changing at various points throughout a car’s working life.
  • Shock absorbers and structural elements: These require expertise to assess, as they’re not particularly evident without getting beneath the car (and knowing what you’re looking for). If a repair or replacement is necessary, the best time to do this is before it worsens to the stage that it becomes problematic.
  • Fluids: The vehicle technician will assess the fluids—brake, oil, transmission, coolant, etc.—and top up or replace as necessary. 
  • Exhaust: The exhaust system runs the entire length of the vehicle and can wear or corrode over time. Prompt repairs or replacements will prevent a more costly fix further down the line. Importantly, a multi-point inspection also tests for emissions, ensuring that your vehicle remains within legal limits.
  • Tires: This will include checking their condition, as well as carrying out any necessary tire rotation, wheel balancing, or tracking issues.

The benefits of a multi-point inspection

The whole point of regular multi-point inspections is to promote car reliability, longevity, and cost-effective motoring. While it can sometimes feel like an unnecessary expense that could be put off for a few weeks or months, doing so is truly a false economy. A timely diagnosis of a worn part and its replacement might cost a few dollars, but it’s highly likely to save you hundreds—or even thousands—of dollars in the long term.

The benefits of having a multi-point inspection carried out at regular intervals are: 

  • Vehicle reliability: The last thing you want is your car to let you down. Vehicle failure is, at best, inconvenient and, at the worst, can be life-altering and/or cost you a whole stack of money. Regular multi-point inspections give you peace of mind that your car won’t break down due to a problem that could’ve been avoided.
  • Cost-effective: Proactive maintenance is always cheaper than having to fix an unexpected issue. From the actual cost of a repair through to associated losses (missed work, taxi, or transport fares, hire car, etc.) you can also budget for planned maintenance, rather than having to suddenly shell out for an unforeseen expense.
  • Mechanical expertise: Taking your car to a mechanic who’s trained and experienced in working on your particular make and model means they know the foibles of the vehicle and what to look out for.
