Has anyone gotten their car inspected during the pandemic? Not sure if I should be worried having someone else sit in it, etc.

I had my car warranted during the lockdown. My local garage has got it sorted. I booked in, left my keys on a tray, they sterilized the keys, put a plastic cover on the seat, disinfected the steering wheel and gear stick. Then they did the warrant, then they did it all in reverse and left my keys in the tray, I paid online and left. I felt quite confident about it.

You can't fix stupid.

Our state doesn't have inspections. But I have gone to get the oil changed and I stayed in the Jeep while they did it. I also bought 4 new tires,  I also stayed in my vehicle for that.

I've had my car worked on 2x and with Subaru, at least in Southern California, disinfected the entire car prior to servicing, used plastic covering on driver and seat, and when they gave me it back, they disinfected the entire car again, keys included. When I got four new tires, as well with America's Tire, it was nowhere near as thorough so I sanitized my own car for good measure.

Be prepared! It may be time....^_^v
