Vehicle health Check Video
« on: October 04, 2022, 05:55:52 PM »
Just had the first annual service on my mk4  Jazz Ex. I was surprised to receive a video by Email  showing my car on the lift , and the camera briefly directed  at each tyre in turn with a commentary quoting  the remaining tread .  (and a mention of 0-25% of brake pad wear.)  29 seconds in total.   I got paperwork with the figures on anyway.

Mine was all OK,  but I assume if  wear was  reaching limits they would video it  in  more  detail , maybe demonstrating the measurement actually being taken ,   and use it as evidence  to persuade you to let them carry out the work.   

Its several years  since I last had a main dealer service.  Are these   videos now the norm?

Depends on the dealer. I had that done when the car was in for the first recall at Dunfermline but not at the second here in Edinburgh. Both Western Honda too.

Crown Honda Bushey have been doing these videos for a few years now.
Let's be careful out there !
