The list of things that will be looked over during a vehicle service check differs from car to car, but most services consist of the following: an inspection of the vehicle body, engine, brakes and other things around the vehicle. Also included are several visual inspections of the paint job (if present), and the interior and exterior of the car. To check the undercarriage, vehicles are lifted by hydraulic systems.

The main reason for the vehicle service check is to make sure that everything on the vehicle was installed correctly. If there are any items that were not installed properly during the vehicle manufacturing process, the service staff can point them out and give customers an adjustment. If a vehicle is not running correctly, it may be due to improper mounting or improper placement of a part. Sometimes the service staff can find problems with a vehicle’s suspension that are not readily apparent to the customer.

All of these things are used to determine how safe a vehicle is, and if there are any warning flags being raised. It is always wise for a vehicle owner to let the service department know about any and all safety issues that he or she notices.
