RKM Performance Center Test & Tune

At RK Motors Charlotte, we’ve sold over 1,600 cars and counting. One thing we have come to realize is that every car has a different personality and sometimes requires extra attention to become exactly what its new owner envisioned. Often times, our customers don’t have the time or the specific knowledge needed to get their car to that desired level.

This is the very reason we developed the RKM Performance Center Test & Tune Package. For our customers that expect reliable performance without constant poking and prodding, our Test & Tune offers a comprehensive inspection performed by one of our ASE certified master technicians, where any significant flaws are addressed before delivery.

With over 100 check points, the Test & Tune package ensures all major systems function so all you have to do is turn the key to enjoy your new ride. No other classic car dealership in the world offers a more thorough post-sale service experience than RK Motors Charlotte.

We begin at the heart of performance: under the hood. From flatheads to LS1’s, inline four cylinders to imported V12’s, the RKM Performance Center knows engines inside and out. While our Seal of Approval guarantees the engines starts, idles and operates leak free, Test & Tune continues the inspection by ensuring:

  • The choke is operational (if equipped)
  • The air filter is breathing clean and clear
  • The coolant system is functional and free of leaks
  • The air conditioning system not only works but blows ice cold

To make sure the cars we sell are ready for the road, our technicians go through every inch of the chassis to ensure reliability, safety and optimal performance.

During the Seal of Approval process, our techs inspect the chassis for corrosion, rust, loose fasteners and improperly routed lines. Bushings are examined for wear, grease fittings are lubricated and the vehicle is tested for steering pull. Test & Tune extends the check by making sure:

  • There is no excessive play in the suspension system
  • Shocks are leak-free
  • The rear differential is leak-free
  • An alignment is performed to ensure proper steering and tire wear

A great interior is a huge asset for any vehicle. During our Seal of Approval, our techs assess overall condition of the interior while ensuring that seats and seat belts work properly, the heater and defroster are operational and all courtesy lights come on when they should. For Test & Tune, we look close to be sure:

  • All accessories work as intended (clocks, radio, etc.)
  • Blower fan works at all speeds
  • Vents are clear and functioning
  • All hand controls work as they should (window cranks/switches, etc.)

Looking good takes a close second to performing well. Our Seal of Approval covers paint, trim, glass and chrome. It also guarantees proper operation of the hood, doors trunk and convertible/removable tops (if equipped). The Test & Tune adds additional safety by assuring:

  • Outside mirrors are fully operational
