How a General Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle using the information you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

When your steering wheel vibrates or shakes its often as a result of a:

  • Wheel is out of balance or loose
  • Wheel bearings can cause vibrations when they fail
  • Tyres are excessively worn or unevenly worn due to suspension problems
  • Brake rotors are warped or glazed over

Popular services linked to a General Inspection:

Wheel Balance

Got the shakes? Don’t blame last night out, blame your unbalanced wheels. They can lead to a bumpy ride, vibrations, wear and tear on your tyres’ tread and your car’s suspension system, as well as on your wallet through reduced fuel economy. Wheel balancing is a process undertaken to balance the weight of a tyre and wheel assembly to ensure it travels evenly and creates even wear across the tyre surface.

Headlight Bulb Replacement

The headlights are a critically important party of your car and something that should always be in perfect working condition. Unless you’re good at driving by feel alone, your headlights are what allows you to drive safely at night.

Tyre Replacement

When you purchase new tyres, a mechanic will always need to fit them to the wheel.

Indicator Bulb Replacement

Letting everyone else know that you’re turning is always a good idea. To do this, car makers install indicators on your car. They’re such a good idea that the New Zealand Government made it a law that you have to have them and if they aren’t working then the Police can fine you. These small orange lights can be the difference between having an accident or not.
