If you'd like to know more about what we do, check out some frequently asked questions below. For more information, contact Peter or one of the team!
Why do I need a pre-purchase inspection before I buy a used car?
You can't tell if a car is mechanically sound just by looking at it. Our team conducts a thorough body inspection, and we look under the hood—checking the engine, drive train, belts, hoses, and spark plugs. We also do a brake safety check and examine the suspension for any damage. We'll provide a full report on the condition of the vehicle prior to purchase.

Book an inspection with Jap Motor & Carby Centre, and you'll have all the information you need to negotiate a fair price for your new car.
Why is my check engine light on?
I drive a new car. If I bring it to you for servicing will I lose my dealer warranty?
