This depends who's doing the checking, LOL. It varies from shop to shop as well as car to car. Some cars are difficult to check things like rear brakes and spark plugs so this won't get looked at every time your car is in for service. There are some Mercedes Benz vehicles that you can not even check the oil without draining it. However, on some cars these things are easy to see. There are a lot of variables in vehicle service. A standardized checklist is deceiving because a checklist doesn't work for every scenario.

Your best bet is to find a good reliable mechanic to do all your services for you. If it is someone you can trust they will make sure your car is well taken care of.
