do dealers lie in their multipoint inspections?

my tires look like shit and actually wore down to the treadwear marks but the multipoint inpsection says they are green

also, my front rotors are scored badly but the brake inspection is green

2 different dealers all gave the same result

from my understanding they have no reason to lie to u, be it warranty or your wallet if they do work the dealer gets paid, you or ford writes them a check. so it makes no sense for them to lie

Because multi-point inspections work like this at some dealers:

Give us your money and we will do nothing but check off a list.

In other words, useless.

Agreed, for the most part. MPI's are good, however, when you have a warranty claim and the dealer/Ford want to say you didn't do required maintenance. If you've done everything the owner's manual tells you to, as well as MPI's, at least they can't use that excuse against you when they won't fix your car.

Sounds like the techs were dumb, or lazy. Inspections are free, so they don't get any money until they sell you something.

sounds like a crappy tech. a muiltipoint inspection is not just something to add on to charge you more, it is a great time to sell parts and services. the dealership could have sold you a set of tires, and brakes, instead the lazy lube tech just checked stuff off...
