RACV Vehicle Inspections

Click play to listen to a Vehicle Inspection Ad

 

Use RACV's independent vehicle inspection service when buying or selling a car, planning a long driving trip or checking a vehicle where the warranty is about to expire. RACV Vehicle Inspections are available from Monday to Friday. Once the inspection is completed, you will receive a report that informs you of the overall condition of the vehicle based on a visual external examination of components, along with a purchase recommendation (when applicable).

A comprehensive vehicle inspection is the most complete survey of your vehicle that RACV offers. It checks even more components of the vehicle than a pre-purchase inspection.

Inspections are done at South Coast Auto Services (Warrnambool's RACV Service Centre). The vehicle is placed on a hoist so our inspectors have increased accessibility and visibility of components and the undercarriage.

The wheels are removed to allow access to check the braking components and the lining size and disc thickness are measured against industry standards.

The vehicle's emissions are checked, which assists in evaluating the efficiency of the engine operation. The inspection is based on a visual external examination of components only. Components are not dismantled to examine internal parts. Some vehicle faults can be diagnosed only by dismantling the engine or are intermittent in operation and not evident from an external examination at the time of inspection. To enquire Click Here.
