The crack went from the far passenger’s side straight across to the left edge of the driver’s side. It is NOT in the line of vision for either driver or passenger however the examiner said it did not qualify as safe enough to use.

So sad.

Engine lights often warn of simple issues such as the gas cap not being tight, but could also be a serious engine failure. Some engine lights alert you for as many as 30 issues. A solid yellow engine light can be very different than a flashing engine light. Again it seems to be at the examiner’s discretion. Red warning lights are more serious than other colours such as no seat belt or parking brake is on.

Driving with the parking brake on is an instant fail typically. It shows that the driver DOESNT check the dash warning routinely before moving the car.

Several clients used cars that made loud grinding noises coming from the wheels or the car’s front end.
