RACV Vehicle Inspections

When purchasing a used vehicle, or if your warranty is about to expire, organise an RACV vehicle inspection at Manuel Automatics ...

For peace of mind when purchasing a used vehicle, or if your warranty is about to expire, you can purchase an RACV vehicle inspection through Manuel Automatics.

We conduct two types of vehicle inspections when purchasing a vehicle:
  1. Pre-purchase: suitable if you are purchasing a vehicle, RACV members receive a 30 day mechanical guarantee & a detailed report.
  2. Comprehensive: checks more vehicle components than the pre-purchase inspection, also suitable for vehicles coming out of warranty & RACV members receive a 30 day guarantee.

Once the inspection is completed, you will receive a report that informs you of the overall condition of the vehicle based on a visual external examination of components, along with a purchase recommendation (when applicable). For more information on, visit the RACV website Vehicle Inspections page.

Please note this service does not provide a roadworthy certificate, this is a separate service we also provide and must be specified at the time of booking your appointment.

30 day mechanical guarantee

We provide a 30-day mechanical guarantee on pre-purchase and comprehensive vehicle inspections, available exclusively to RACV members. Members will receive a reimbursement towards the cost of repairing a mechanical fault not identified on the inspection report, giving added assurance when purchasing a used vehicle.

The 30-day mechanical guarantee is subject to the following conditions found on the RACV website.

There are some vehicles we cannot inspect, or can only conduct a comprehensive inspection on. We will inform you if this is the case when booking your inspection.

Please Note: To be conducted effectively, some prestige or imported vehicles require comprehensive or "extra time" comprehensive inspections, due to size, complexity or access to components. These vehicles will be identified at the time of booking.

If you're after a roadworthy certificate, we can provide that for you as well as a separate service additional to your vehicle inspection, contact us to book all inspections and don't forget our 2016 senior's special offer - 5% off all servicing, repairs & pre-purchase inspections for RACV members at Manuel Automatics.
