So we have completed several vehicle safety inspectons as per the new guielines and overall it's not bad. Takes a little longer to cover the additional tems and a longer documentation process.
One thing we have come across is the parking brake systems. They work but when you visually take things apart there's problems. So this is something that has to be watched for.
Here's a link our facebook page for a GM vehicle we just did. Parking brake seemed to hold in the parking lot when fully applied but upon inspection one side was missing the lining on the parking brake shoes.
The important thing to remember is this is for your safety. The government is not making this a cash grab, they are ensuring that Repair facilities abide by new modern standards.
Hope this helps
