About every 4 years I start getting the urge to trade my wheels in and every 4 years I'm sorta amazed by the evolution of our vehicles.
The coolest thing about my 2008 Ford Escape is the auxiliary stereo jack and the self activated 4 wheel drive.
The vehicle my parents recently purchased was almost like crawling off into a space shuttle.
Keyless Entry and Keyless Cranking. Just having the key in your back pocket or stuffed off in a bag is sufficient.
Heated seats are the norm but now we have AIR CONDITIONED seats and a heated steering wheel.
A camera for backing up because bending your neck is soon to be a thing of the past.
You can communicate with the vehicle like a person. You can tell the vehicle to make a phone call, play some country music, tell you a story, remember something, or even ask it where to go. These are all great things for us Home Inspectors. Pretty soon I'll have a full time secretary living in my vehicle.
If you happen to have one of these new high tech vehicles than thermal imaging may can be of some interest to you. Using an Infrared camera makes it possible to verify all the heated and air conditioned seats, proper airflow and temp to all vents, proper window defrosting systems, uniform brake functions, uniform tire tread wear, and many other functions.
Infrared Car Inspections may oneday be a service we at Utah Infrared provide but until then I'd be glad to inspect anyones vehicle free of charge if you want to stop by and learn a bit about the capabilites of Infrared.
