Recommended Maintenance

To guarantee that you pass your inspection the first time, we recommend following a routine maintenance schedule for your vehicle’s service needs. Staying on track will ensure your car meets the safety standards for the inspection and efficiency levels for the emissions test, which is required in select counties.* If you don’t follow a routine maintenance schedule, you may find out about problems with your vehicle during your inspection. If you fail because of an issue with your car, our ASE Certified technicians can help you with the necessary repairs before retesting.

*Smog checks are required in Cook, Dupage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Monroe, Madison, Clair, and Will County.

What We Check

The best way to prepare for your inspection is to know what your vehicle will be checked for. Then you can make necessary repairs ahead of time to guarantee you pass the first time. Our technicians conduct thorough inspections that follow state guidelines. We check the function of seatbelts, headlights, taillights, turning signals, brakes, steering, and more. We also check for illuminated dashboard warning lights, like the check engine light, that indicate a problem with the vehicle. It’s a good idea to handle service for any warning lights before your scheduled inspection. For more information on the inspection, visit the DMV for helpful resources and guidelines.
