What is a 30-Point Vehicle Inspection

A 30-point inspection provides a “snapshot” of  the current state of a vehicle and its essential systems. The many components of a motor vehicle need to work as one in order to keep you on the road, safe and sound. The various elements of a vehicle wear at different rates and a 30-point inspection can be crucial to understanding your vehicle’s current condition.


A 30-point inspection uses a rating system to classify the wear level of each component being tested. The system ratings range from “Ok Excellent Condition,” to “Critical Needs Servicing Immediately.”


Think of the rating system as your vehicle’s report card. From it, you can glean what is making the grade and what you’ll need to keep an eye on for the future.
