What is Checked During an Inspection?

During your Audi inspection, your vehicle will undergo a full safety test of 14 different parts of your vehicle. For example, your brakes, exhaust system, and suspension are checked to ensure there are no braking or steering issues.

Other areas that are checked during your inspection include:

  • Windows and wiper blades
  • Exterior lights
  • Tires and wheels
  • Body frame of your Audi

Interior safety checks are also performed during this inspection. Your airbags and seat belts are also checked. This way, if you're in a collision, you can stay as safe as possible.

What if I Fail My Inspection?

If when your vehicle is inspected it fails the test, you'll have to re-test in 60 days or less. Before you can retest, you'll need to make any necessary repairs. Make sure to get these repairs taken care of as soon as possible since it's illegal to drive a car that's failed its inspection test.

Importance of Audi Inspections

Think of your annual Audi inspection test like your wellness exam with your physician. Both serve the purpose of performing a full-body test to check for any potential hazards.

You may not think that a crack in your windshield or a worn tire makes a major difference in your driving, but just like an illness or medical condition, these small things can affect your driving more than you might think.

These inspections are the time to make sure everything looks good inside and outside your Audi and to make any necessary repairs to maintain long-term health.

How Often do I Need My Audi Inspected?

In Massachusetts, vehicles are required to pass an inspection every 12 months. For newly purchased cars, you'll need an inspection within seven days of purchase. A sticker placed on your windshield indicates when your next inspection is due.

Staying on top of your inspections is important for the safety of you, your passengers, and other drivers around you, but it's also important to avoid an unnecessary traffic violation that could result in fines.
