If you think your Mazda isn’t running as well as it should be, why not bring it to Pentagon Mazda for a Vehicle Health Check?
Our trained technicians can carry out a 28-point Vehicle Health Check (VHC) while you wait, giving you peace of mind should you have any concerns about your Mazda. Best of all, we’ll do it all for free! We also perform a VHC every time you bring your Mazda in for a service, MOT or repair.
A VHC is a visual inspection of the brakes, wheels, tyres, exhaust, steering and wiper blades plus a check on the key fluid levels that we carry out every time a vehicle visits our workshop.
Once our technician has completed the VHC we’ll provide you with an easy to read report and a complementary short 'Workshop View' video. This highlight the safety, reliability and general roadworthiness of the vehicle, clearly documenting via a simple traffic light system any wear and tear items that might require immediate or future attention.
This way it’s easier for you to make an informed decision about any potential issues we’ve identified. Transparency, innovation, simplicity: it’s all part of the service.
Here’s a quick example of a Pentagon VHC video in action in the workshop:
Each item that is checked by our technician is classified as either green, amber or red.
This item appears / is in a good condition and should not need any attention before your next annual service.
|This item needs attention and will need to be re-inspected before your next annual service, but it is not absolutely essential for the repair to be completed today.|
|A problem has been identified with this item that may have legal and / or safety implications. We recommend this item is repaired or replaced as a matter of urgency|
If we identify any amber or red items that we believe need attention - either now or in the future - we will fully explain the reasons why and give you a competitive, all inclusive price should you decide to have the work done with us.
If you don’t want the amber work completed on the day, we will contact you again in a few months so you can bring your vehicle back into the workshop. Our technicians will then re-assess the situation and check if the item or items have deteriorated further.
Then if you are happy for us to do it, we will make sure the work is completed competitively and to the highest standard.
