Everything We Check on a Multi-Point Inspection

600 × 400
The best way to keep your Toyota in top shape is to bring it in for regularly scheduled maintenance. Whether you are bringing your new Toyota to our service department for one of its ToyotaCare maintenance checks, or your vehicle is several years old and in need of a checkup, our Toyota-certified and trained technicians will perform a multi-point inspection. 

After your visit, your service advisor will provide you with the multi-point inspection sheet, which is a detailed checklist of the items checked and their condition. Next to each item there are three checkboxes in the colors green, yellow and red. Green means the item checked functions as it should. Yellow means the item will need to be replaced or addressed in the future as it’s showing wear. Red means the item needs immediate attention.
