Inspection due

My car is due for inspection and was wondering if there are nay benefits going to the dealer? The dealer is going to cost me about 20 more. I am just curious.

No, maybe a loaner.

But inspection doesn't take long and you'll end up waiting longer at the dealer.

Also inspection is free in NJ if you go to a state facility.

Idk if that's the case elsewhere.

My dealer is nice enough to pay for state inspections. It's part of their customer service if you bought a car from them.

no benefit except they will look the car over and if they see any issues try to soak you for additonal repairs, unless its still under warranty,

if you like free coffee and donuts go to the dealer and get your 20 dollars worth
