Some Tips and Terms for Medical Professionals to Know for Keeping Your Car Healthy … and Saving Money!

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

Via Source: Nalley Lexus – Roswell, GA

Taking your vehicle in for service is often like going to the doctor for a routine checkup. As a car, and especially Jaguar, enthusiast I should know. There is a photo of my vintage 2000 XJ-V8-L below. My wife calls her “Ellie“; short for elegant.

If your car is having problems, it may be the human equivalent to the flu. It just goes to show how similar cars are, and while their blood may be made up of oil and gasoline, taking care of your car is still a very important task.

Regular Care

Neglect to take care of yourself or your car, and you could be staring down some pretty expensive bills.

When you take your vehicle in for service, the technicians will often perform a multi-point vehicle inspection. Just as a doctor would make notes in your medical chart, the repair technician has a list of areas to check on your vehicle. This record is given to you when service is complete so you can judge for yourself when to make repairs, and prepare accordingly.

The only problem is that many people simply don’t know what these records mean. While the inspections are intended to improve safety and save money in the long run, many owners ignore them and are forced to pay the consequences. No worries, as we’ll take a look at what the multi-point inspection form means and why it’s so important.


At the top of the multi-point checklist inspection form are often the vehicle’s make, model, mileage, and the name of the technician performing service. The owner’s contact information is also noted here, as well as the vehicle’s identification number, or VIN for short. This is the vehicle’s version of a social security number and is just as important to your car for legality reasons.

From here on out, you’ll likely see a lot of green, yellow, and red boxes with check marks scattered throughout. To keep things simple, just think of it as a traffic signal: Green boxes that are checked mean that the component was inspected and found to be in good condition, while yellow means that the part will need attention and service in the future, and red boxes denote components requiring immediate attention for safety’s sake.


What kinds of things and issues are checked? Perhaps the most prevalent item on any inspection sheet is the condition of the vehicle’s tires. You’ll see conditions marked for each tire regarding tread depth, tire pressure, damage, and wear patterns, and whether an alignment check is necessary. You’ll also notice that brake condition is highly important on the inspection sheet. Again, the color of the marked box denotes overall condition of the braking system, and whether or not components such as brake pads need to be replaced.

Even More Issus

Aside from the major components such as tires and brakes, other things being inspected are just as important, if a bit smaller and tougher for the normal owner to notice. All fluids such as coolant, transmission fluid, engine oil, brake fluid, and power steering fluid are checked, which is helpful as most owners don’t think to check the condition and levels of these fluids on a normal basis. Other components inspected include windshield wipers, air filters, steering linkage, lighting components, and suspension and steering pieces, among other things.


Take it from me – it sure may all sound like a complex task, and one that seems pretty important. That’s because it is. It may just be a piece of paper, but it’s one that can give a great glimpse into the condition of your vehicle.

After all, wouldn’t you want to know if you had health problems?

  1. Great Jag Color

    Dr. Marcinko – Did you know that based on vehicle build data, silver has been the most popular car from 2001 to 2010. However, a new color has taken the reins and propelled itself up the color popularity ladder?

    According to recent PPG data, white, not silver, is now the most popular car color. Even though white is the new front-runner, silver and black are right behind it in popularity.

  2. Auto Loan Debts

    Carrying debt is always a drain on the finances, so many doctors look to pay off their loans early. And, when talking about credit cards or other high-interest revolving debt this is certainly true.


    But, when you’re talking about lower interest installment loans – the benefits may be far less than you anticipated.



  3. Autos and the Economy

    Auto makers had to recall millions of vehicles this year because of defects and other problems.

    It didn’t matter. Americans kept buying cars and trucks anyway; and saved the 2012 econony.
