Benefits of keeping a Professional Eye on Your Car

Life can be hectic and inspecting your vehicle can easily fall to the bottom of the list before you know it. Visually inspecting your vehicle can be the first indication of possible issues that can help prevent major repairs. However, sometimes it's hard to know what to look for, and things can appear normal. Let our experts at John's Automotive Care take the guesswork out of inspecting your vehicle. 

At John's Automotive Care, a visual inspection involves a qualified repair technician looking at your car's parts and systems. Our mechanics notate what looks normal while looking for anything out of the ordinary. We take special care to inspect your vehicle and even take photographs of your vehicle to keep you informed about our findings. We email the photographs to you along with the full report so you can see exactly what our technicians are referring to regarding your vehicle. 

Our technicians take visual inspections very seriously. However, even the most seasoned and trained mechanic cannot analyze a vehicle like a computer can. At John's Automotive Care we go the extra step and use computer diagnostics to ensure nothing is missed during your vehicle inspection. Computer assessments provide information based on data collected while your car is driven and parked. When a technician uses computer diagnostics, he receives a list of possible issues your vehicle may have that need to be further assessed. Our ASE-Certified auto mechanics use AutoVitals with photos to identify issues and help you understand our recommendations to resolve them. 

Computer diagnostics are very reliable, but they cannot tell the entire story. Computers do not have the ability to reason as humans do. The best vehicle inspections start with a qualified technician assessing the results of a computer diagnostics test and visually evaluating those findings. Having a trained technician with an up-to-date diagnostic system gives our valued customers the best of both worlds. You can rest assured that our team will be sure nothing is overlooked visually or digitally.
