If you are thinking of buying or recently bought a used car, thinking of driving a car that you haven't used in a couple of years, or moving to a new location and bringing your car with you, you may need to bring your vehicle in for an inspection. There are several types of inspections depending on your situation, and for all types of inspections, Costa Auto Care and Tire is here to help. We are a designated inspection facility and can perform any type of inspection your vehicle needs. We've inspected vehicles from Mercedes, BMW, Lexus, Toyota, and most other car makes. Some types of car inspections include:
Pre-purchase (used) vehicle inspection: If you are thinking of buying a used car, having the vehicle inspected before you make a purchase is a good idea. Our skilled technicians at Costa Auto Care and Tire can perform an inspection. This usually consists of a road test to assess suspension and engine performance. We will also perform a full evaluation of the vehicle in question and all related systems that comprise it to see if the car needs additional repairs, such as scheduled maintenance, tune-ups, fuel system repair, and ignition system repair.
Brake and lamp station: If your vehicle has been off the road for several years, you may need a complete brake and light inspection to ensure that these basic safety systems are working well enough to get it safely back on the road.
State inspections: Every year, millions of motor vehicles across the country go through state inspections in their home states. Checking the inspection sticker on your windshield is important for finding the date your vehicle is due. A state inspection station will perform an emission test and safety inspection to ensure that the vehicle is safe to drive.
Other services we at Costa Auto Care and Tire in Alameda can perform for your vehicle include:
Inspect and replace starters: If your vehicle won't start even after jumpstarting it, there may be a problem with your starter. The starter is a crucial component of your vehicle, so it is important to get the issue resolved by our trusted technicians at Costa Auto Care and Tire.
Safety beacon and LED lighting: These lights are installed on industrial vehicles and machinery to increase the visibility of these vehicles, draw attention to hazardous conditions in industrial facilities, and alert employees and the public of emergencies.
