Digital Vehicle Inspection (DVI) at Boca Auto Fix

At Boca Auto Fix, we prioritize the safety and reliability of every vehicle that comes through our doors. One of the key components of our service is the Digital Vehicle Inspection (DVI) process, performed by our Master ASE Certified Technician. This detailed inspection ensures that we thoroughly examine each vehicle, providing our clients with a comprehensive report on its condition.

What is a Digital Vehicle Inspection (DVI)?

A Digital Vehicle Inspection involves a meticulous visual inspection of numerous components of your vehicle. Depending on the make and model, this can range from 30 to 50 inspection points. The process typically takes 30 to 35 minutes, depending on the vehicle’s size and complexity. The inspection is divided into six major sections: Walkup, Underhood, Undercar, Brakes, Battery, and Tires.

Sections of the Digital Vehicle Inspection

1. Walkup Inspection

Purpose: Document the vehicle’s exterior condition upon arrival.

Process: Our customer advocate, Alissa, takes four corner photos of the vehicle and a picture of the instrument cluster while idling to document any warning lights. She also notes the oil change sticker to record the last service date.

2. Underhood Inspection

Purpose: Check all components under the hood.

Process: Our technician inspects the cabin air filter, engine oil level, transmission fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, air filter, hoses, belts, fuel system, and battery. We document the condition and mark any components needing attention with a green (good), yellow (requires attention), or red (requires immediate attention) indicator.

3. Undercar Inspection

Purpose: Examine components under the vehicle.

Process: We lift the vehicle to inspect the tires for proper pressure and condition, checking for nails or punctures. We also look at the brake pads and rotors, ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings, sway bar end links, control arm bushings, shocks and struts, CV axles, powertrain mounts, fluid leaks, exhaust, differential, and transfer case fluids.

4. Brakes

Purpose: Ensure the braking system is functioning correctly.

Process: We inspect the brake pads and rotors, looking for wear and measuring thickness limits. We document any components needing attention and recommend necessary repairs.

5. Battery

Purpose: Check the battery’s health and connections.

Process: We inspect the battery terminals for corrosion and test the battery’s cold cranking amps to ensure it is functioning properly. Batteries in Florida typically last about three years, so regular testing is crucial.

6. Tires

Purpose: Ensure tires are safe and properly inflated.

Process: We check tire size and pressure, matching them with the vehicle’s placard. We also look for uneven wear, indicating alignment or suspension issues.
