Top Reasons Jeeps Fail North Carolina State Inspection
Do you own a New or Used Jeep? Whether you own a Jeep Patriot, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Compass, or another model, your vehicle will need a North Carolina State Inspection. People want to know what the reasons are that their Jeep could fail the North Carolina State Inspection. There are a few reasons your Jeep could potentially fail the inspection:
Windshield Wiper Blades Being Torn or Broken
If the windshield wipers on your Jeep are broken or cut, your Jeep will fail the North Carolina State Inspection. If the wiper blades cannot properly clean the windshield to allow proper visibility, your Jeep will also fail. If think your wiper blades may be old, you should change them before the inspection.
Bad Brakes, Poor Brake Pad Condition
If your Jeep’s brake pads or brake shoes are worn or not working properly, your Jeep fail the North Carolina state inspection. If your brakes are in bad condition this is also very dangerous for you as a driver. If your Jeep has not had its brakes serviced in a long time, contact our service department and have them checked!
Check Engine Light is On
Turn on your Jeep, but do not start it yet. Is the check engine light on? Now, start the engine. If the light is on after the car is started, there may be a problem with the engine. If this is true for you, call us to have your Jeep checked out for potential engine issues, regardless of which Jeep model you own.
Headlight or Tail Light in Bad Condition or Broken
If the lights on your Jeep are not working, you need to replace them immediately. You could get a ticket if a police officer sees you driving with broken lights, and you will definitely fail the North Carolina State Inspection.
Tire Tread Depth Too Low
If the tires on your Jeep are old, they may not pass the North Carolina state inspection. If the tread is very low, around 2/32nds, you will fail the inspection. It is recommended to replace your tires around 4/32nds. A new tire has a tread of around 10/32nds.
