DESCRIPTION OF VEHICLE INSPECTIONS:
Vehicle inspections help to regulate proper vehicle maintenance. They also contribute to safe driving conditions. A vehicle inspection may be required annually before a driver renews vehicle registration, or during the sale and transfer of a vehicle. As a vehicle inspection station, we adhere to a specific set of guidelines that outline our inspection standards. These guidelines go over important inspection items and describe the inspection methods we follow when determining whether a vehicle is fit for the road or in need of maintenance. For each of our vehicle inspectors, the main priority is to ensure that the vehicle is both well-maintained and equipped for highway use. All of our vehicle inspections are performed in complete compliance with the regulations set forth by governing parties, and we may provide drivers with a full checklist of approved items after the service is complete.
BENEFITS OF VEHICLE INSPECTIONS:
An inspection can identify potential vehicular problems early and save you time and money down the road as a result. We are equipped to handle a variety of vehicle inspections. During every inspection, our service staff uses a series of quality checkpoints to determine whether your vehicle should be deemed safe for highway operation.
WHEELS & SUSPENSION:
If your vehicle has worn down steering or suspension parts, this can lead to excessive wear on your tires and overall poor alignment. The steering and suspension systems in your vehicle are complex, and problems with one of these systems may also negatively affect other systems of your vehicle.
By replacing worn parts, you can restore your vehicle’s performance. This is why we recommend an inspection of your steering and suspension parts each time we perform an alignment. Jim's Auto Care today for a car suspension and steering inspection.

FLUID FILM® is manufactured using an intricate heating and blending process, which combines unrefined wool wax with selective polar agents and corrosion inhibitors, creating a unique, lanolin-based formulation that stops existing rust on contact. Penetrating on contact, it creates a fluid, self-healing barrier that is always active and will not chip or crack, protecting vehicle undercoating’s and exposed metals for extended periods of time. Safe for use on all metals, it will stop pitting in chrome, will not harm most paints or plastic, and has exceptional lubricating properties, penetrating to stop squeaks and provide lasting lubricity for all moving parts. Electrically non conductive, FLUID FILM® has a high flash point and a thin, flexible composition, making it a perfect protectant for battery terminals and electrical connections.
