The Mobil Repair Center, a new approach to automotive service work, is a complete diagnostic clinic separate and distinct from the normal service areas. This system applies principal of rapid coordinated tests using numerous pieces of sophisticated diagnostic equipment and instruments designed and built into a production line facility. In operation, trained specialists using specially designed techniques and procedures subject the vehicle to over 66 different tests and observations, evaluating and comparing to standards the performance of all the major systems and components of the vehicle. A completed report of these findings, when analyzed, provides a more composite story of the car problems and needs, thereby providing a sound basis for economical and accurate repairs and adjustments.
