What is a car diagnostics check?

Every modern car, be it an Audi, BMW, Volkswagen, Bentley, Porsche, Seat, or whatever else, has a sophisticated onboard computer system running the show. This system monitors the vehicle’s performance continually through a complex series of sensors dotted about the car’s infrastructure. These sensors keep an eye on everything from engine temperature and mileage through to oil and fuel levels, and so much more. Pretty much anything you can think of that impacts on the running of your car is having pertinent information relayed to the computer for the entire time that the vehicle is in operation.
The computer keeps a detailed log of the information it collates. During a car diagnostic check specialist equipment is used to bring up that log and read through it to find evidence of existing or potential problems with your vehicle. Our car diagnostic specialists are trained to read these transcripts and spot issues either as (or hopefully before they arise.

When should I have a car diagnostics check?

We recommend that you incorporate a car diagnostic check into part and parcel of your vehicle’s maintenance routine. An annual check-up allows you to spot performance issues before they become serious problems. Similarly, should any of the warning lights on your car’s dashboard start lighting up, that’s a sign that your onboard computer has already detected a fault in the system. A car diagnostic check at this point will be able to pinpoint precisely what’s wrong and how to fix it.
