We are getting calls from parents wanting to make sure their kids’ car is dependable and safe.
Watching your kids drive off in their first vehicle can be emotional for any parent. Add to that, the worry that their car might break down and watch your stress level hit the roof. While we cannot take the emotion away, we can certainly alleviate your worry and stress by ensuring the vehicle is sound and in good condition with a DVI (detailed vehicle inspection).
Unlike other states, Michigan does not have state-mandated vehicle inspections. Without the mandate, it can be easy to overlook regular inspections as proactive auto care. It can also be tough finding an auto shop who’s technicians know how to do a DVI like we do at O’Neill Auto & Transmission Service.
We offer a DVI, including a scan of all modules, steering linkage and battery & charging. You will have accurate knowledge of the mechanical state of your vehicle. We will tell you what items need immediate attention and if others can be safely put off for a while. Cost can range from $90-$225, depending on how detailed you wish us to get.
Having this information helps to budget you auto repair/maintenance cost and will give you peace of mind when your young driver is away from home.
