Vehicle Inspection

The experts at Stephens Automotive are here to perform a vehicle inspection for your vehicle in Des Moines, IA.

Vehicle inspections are often required before the sale or transfer of a vehicle. They can be required before renewing your vehicle registration as well. Some states require yearly vehicle inspections, and different states have different guidelines for what needs to be inspected.

It’s recommended that vehicles get inspected about every 10,000 to 15,000 miles. You should also consider getting an inspection before buying a used car or prior to a long road trip. This can help you avoid unnecessary break downs or costly repairs.
