Whether you're purchasing a used vehicle or just want to be proactive about car care, CAA's 139-point Vehicle Inspection Service is a thorough, affordable and objective way to spot potential problems.

Our qualified technicians will provide an unbiased safety and computer scan, including a complete written report and explanation of the results, without the typical high-pressure repair pitch.

Our full two-hour inspection covers everything from the engine and exhaust to the wipers and lights. Each vehicle is road tested to check for abnormal noises or performance issues. Every inspection comes with a full report with comprehensive notes and comments on each point inspected.

Frequently asked questions.

Inspections take place on-site at our select Approved Auto Repair Services® (AARS™) facilities located throughout Manitoba.

These shops have already met CAA's tough standards to get the AARS seal of approval.

When you see our "AARS" sign on their building, you'll know it's a shop that provides consistent, high-quality mechanical workmanship.

It's about protecting yourself. You work hard for your money and you want the best value you can get.

This program will help you make the right choice when you buy a used vehicle by spotting trouble before you close the deal. It will also help you in deciding whether it's the right time to sell your current vehicle, or fix it and keep it running a while longer.

We recommend a CAA Vehicle Inspection Service at three key stages:

  1. Before buying a used vehicle
  2. Before your warranty expires
  3. Before any major repairs
