Vehicle Inspections

If you are thinking of buying a used 4WD, then the last thing you need is to be worried about how long it will last before needing expensive repairs. 4WD System’s experienced technicians can put your mind at ease by comprehensively inspecting the vehicle for you.

Why have your vehicle inspected?
Buying a second hand vehicle can be a daunting process, especially when looking at four wheel drives. With almost twice as many mechanical parts compared to a conventional vehicle, the chance of having mechanical problems is a lot greater. Factors such as normal wear & tear, poor servicing, driver abuse or neglect, or unforseen deterioration of some internal components can all affect the over all life and running costs of the vehicle.

The aims of the comprehensive inspection are:

  • to provide a comprehensive examination of the vehicle
  • to highlight any mechanical repairs that may be required in the future
  • to establish suitability for purchase
  • to expose any current mechanical problems before the end of warranty
