Inspection of cars being taken on, or being released from lease, can address liability issues with the current condition of the car and responsible party based on lease contract wording. Inspection of new car manufacturing works much like an audit of people, processes, and materials to meet contractual obligations.

Unbiased, knowledgeable, and professional assessments of current practices, incident investigations, and process control.
