Vehicle Inspections

When it comes to vehicle inspections, Capital GMC Service has you covered. Whether you’re in need of a quick air conditioning inspection or need something inside the engine inspected, Capital is the repair shop for you.

The guts of your vehicle are immense! Hundreds of different mechanisms working at all times individually, and then together with hundreds of other mechanisms to make your vehicle run regularly. The more intricate the system, the more inspections needed, and it’s safe to say with today’s technology, most vehicles on the road are running considerably intricate systems. All this is to say that to keep your vehicle in good shape, it’s important that you’re consistent with its systems inspections, replacements, and repairs.

At Capital GMC Service in Regina, we offer the best inspections. Our technicians are professionally trained to inspect every part of your vehicle. If you’re experiencing a problem with your vehicle, or want to prevent any future problems, bring in your vehicle and we’ll inspect it.

After the inspection is the important part: “Inspection Transparency”, we call it. That means we’ll always be honest with what we’ve found during your vehicle’s inspection, and if we’ve found anything that needs to be fixed or replaced, we’re going to present that as an option only! We will not, under any circumstances, create or upsell unnecessary services after an inspection. We consider your satisfaction #1 priority; we want you to leave happy and we’re not in the business of selling you things you don’t need.

So, fear not! If you hear a funny noise, or something isn’t working quite right, bring it on over to your friends at Capital GMC Service, and we’ll inspect the heck out of it!

    What is a safety inspection, and how can I get one in Regina?

    Well, Capital GMC’s got you covered! Not only is our dealership your one-stop shop for new and pre-owned vehicles, as well as a service experience that is second to none, we also offer complete Safety Inspections!

    But what is safety inspection?

    Some passenger vehicles brought into Saskatchewan from out of province and some total loss vehicles are structurally and mechanically unfit. Before these vehicles can be registered in Saskatchewan, they need to pass one or both inspections, depending on the condition of the vehicle. A Mechanical safety inspection is to determine if the vehicle is mechanically safe to drive, and a Body Integrity Inspection is to determine if the vehicle is structurally safe to drive.

    Here at Capital GMC, we are able to perform both of these inspections. We will check your vehicle from top to bottom, inside and out, to ensure that it meets SGI’s requirements. We will check everything from your interior lights and airbags to your alternator, battery and everything in between.
