The Importance of Automotive Inspections

Vehicle inspections are very important to what we do at Fox Run Auto. They allow our technicians and diagnosticians to identify potential automotive problems for our customers. They enable us to provide more accurate repair recommendations and price estimates. Above all else, they ensure we are able to get the job done right by eliminating guesswork.

Determining the Specific Problem(s)

If you call an automotive shop and they give you a quote over the phone, they really are just guessing what work needs to be done based on what you are able to tell them. You think you might have transmission problems, but perhaps it's really an engine issue and the shop won't know that until they actually see the vehicle in person and can determine the specific damage. 

Inspect First, Quote Later

Unless it's for standard maintenance services like oil changes that have a set price, we rarely give price estimates over the phone at Fox Run Auto. We might be able to give you a broad ballpark figure. However, it really doesn't mean much until our automotive technicians can perform a proper and thorough vehicle inspection. They look everything over and figure out what the exact problems are. Then, our service staff can provide you with a detailed inspection report and accurate price estimates for the specific repairs that are recommended by the mechanics. This way, you know exactly what needs to be done and how much it will cost before you authorize the repairs.
