Every day, many people rely on their vehicles for work, errands, and travel. But in our busy daily routines, we often forget about an important part of car ownership: regular multi-point inspections for safety, maintenance, and performance. These check-ups are not just about fixing problems; they’re about preventing bigger issues from developing in the future.

What is a Multi-Point Car Inspection?

A multi-point vehicle inspection is a thorough exam of your car’s current condition. It’s done by automotive professionals who are trained to spot the smallest signs of wear and tear. Think of it as a health check-up for your vehicle. At Monro, we offer our free ConfiDrive® Performance Review with every visit. The goal of this comprehensive evaluation is not to find problems, but to make sure your car is well taken care of.

Some states require a separate vehicle inspection to ensure your vehicle meets specific safety and environmental standards. Each state has its own laws, but these inspections focus on things like brakes, lights, tires, and emissions. Multi-point inspections, on the other hand, are more extensive and assess the overall health of your car.

What Gets Checked During a Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection?

Every automotive shop has its own checklist for a multi-point inspection. For the best service, go to a garage that reviews your entire vehicle: dashboard lights and check engine light, windshield and wipers, body, tires, brakes, and steering and suspension.

At Monro, our ConfiDrive Performance Review follows the Uniform Inspection and Communication Standards of the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP). We look at various components including:

Benefits of Routine Multi-Point Inspections 

Extends the Life of Your Vehicle

Multi-point inspections are like routine check-ups for your car to make sure it stays in good shape. By addressing small issues early, you can prevent major damage and extend the life of your vehicle.

Prevents Costly Repairs

When it comes to car repairs, prevention is key. For example, it’s cheaper to replace a worn-out brake pad than it is to repair a damaged rotor or caliper. Routine inspections catch issues early, saving you money in the long run.

Improves Fuel Efficiency

During a multi-point inspection, an automotive technician will check things like the engine fuel management system, tires, and exhaust system. When these are in good shape, your vehicle burns fuel more efficiently. This results in better mileage, saving you money at the pump.

Gives You Peace of Mind

Knowing that your car has been thoroughly inspected  by an expert makes you feel safe and confident. It reduces the worry of unexpected breakdowns and being stranded along the road.

When and How Often Should You Get a Multi-Point Inspection?

The frequency of inspections depends on how much you drive and the age of your vehicle. As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to get a car inspection at least once or twice a year or every 10,000-12,000 miles. If you drive frequently or in harsh conditions, you might consider more frequent inspections. Remember, consistency is key when it comes to car maintenance. Regular inspections will help you stay ahead of the game.
