Many parts are equipped on vehicles to provide features that customers enjoy and make vehicles run as efficiently as possible. Over time, many of these parts wear out as a result of normal aging. Some of the parts on vehicles are vital to the performance of vehicles, while others are simply accessories. With the numerous parts included in vehicles, it can be challenging for drivers to know when certain parts are wearing out and need to be replaced. A multi-point inspection is a vehicle service that assists drivers with maintaining their vehicles.
A multi-point inspection is a service where a technician will check the many parts of a vehicle to determine their conditions and overall condition. During a multi-point inspection, a technician will check parts and systems, like a vehicle's battery or brake system. Many dealerships perform multi-point inspections on the vehicles that customers trade-in or vehicles they acquire through other means.
There are many different ways for technicians and service centers to perform multi-point inspections on the vehicles brought in, but many locations color-code components as they inspect the vehicles. These color codes provide organization for the extensive process and detail what components need to be addressed the fastest. The color system typically separates components that need to be replaced immediately, components that will need to be replaced soon, and components in good condition.
A multi-point inspection is not necessary for drivers to complete on their vehicles, but it certainly helps with vehicle maintenance. Multi-point inspections provide drivers with the knowledge of how their vehicles are performing and what may need to be addressed. Having multi-point inspections routinely done on your vehicle will help you improve the vehicle's longevity and avoid having roadside emergencies.
It is generally recommended that drivers have multi-point inspections done on their vehicles at least once every 2,000 to 5,000 miles. The frequency in which a driver chooses to have multi-point inspections done on their vehicle ultimately depends on the age of their vehicle.
