Seal of Approval

Under our innovative buying program, RK Motors customers who pay full retail price for a vehicle, receive a comprehensive, multi-point vehicle Exit Service referred to as “Seal of Approval, carried out by our experienced ASE Certified Master Mechanics at the RK Motors Performance Center. The key attributes of the Seal of Approval program are explained below. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact a member of our sales team.

Whats included in the Seal of Approval?

INTERIOR

With looks, power and performance out of the way, there is one final subject to our Seal of Approval process: the interior. It's where you'll spend the most time, so go the extra mile to make sure that time will be enjoyable and trouble free. Among other items, our interior checklist ensures:

  • Speedometer functions
  • Courtesy lights function if equipped
  • Door handles operate properly
  • Front seat belts work properly if equipped
  • Horn operates
  • Drivers seat adjusts properly

  • Convertible top functions
  • Hood and trunk latches function properly
  • Doors open and close properly
  • Windows go up and down properly if equipped
  • Wiper blades inspected and wipers function

DRIVABILITY

We know most of our customers like to drive their cars – not just off the trailer but out on the roads in every day conditions. In order to make sure the cars we sell offer a proper driving experience, our technicians go through every inch of the chassis to ensure reliability, safety and solid performance.

Our techs begin by performing a visual inspection to note items such as corrosion, loose fasteners or improperly routed lines. If everything appears sound, suspension and steering is up next. Again, the tech goes through the car to ensure:

  • All Suspension components are in place
  • Power steering fluid is checked and topped off if equipped
  • Bushings and joints are checked for wear
  • Axle bearings and seals are inspected for wear
  • Shocks are inspected for leaks
  • Torque checked on fasteners
  • Steering wheel is straight
  • Alignment checked if pull is present
  • Grease all points with grease fittings

Wheels and tires are also inspected for damage or irregular wear of any kind.

  • Brake pads/shoes checked for condition
  • Emergency brake operated if equipped
  • Check the system for leaks
  • Brakes function with no pull
  • Check brake fluid level and condition

From small blocks to big blocks, inline four cylinders to W10's, the RK Motors Performance Center knows engines inside and out. To make sure our customers get reliable performance, our Seal of Approval process covers all the basics to ensure:

The video is then emailed to our customers for their viewing.
