Eyeing a used Japanese import? Good news! Automotive Technologies Limited (ATL) has partnered with Vehicle Inspection Management System (VIMS) to provide official data on imported vehicles from Japan.

ATL, the first company to carry out Japanese odometer inspections, has partnered with VIMS to provide Malaysian imports with a great new service. Through this partnership, ATL has shared their official information on Japanese imports with VIMS. Thanks to this collaboration, VIMS is now equipped with accurate, official government approved data.

When you get a used Japanese car inspected by VIMS, you can also learn the vehicle’s actual date of original registration (DOOR), full mileage (past and current), and model variant. This is on top of what the VIMS inspection reveals from their 1,000-plus-point Visual Analysis & Diagnostic Analysis (VADA) comprised of the vehicle’s exterior, interior, mainframe and basic mechanical condition. This additional information will grant used car buyers a greater level of knowledge and peace of mind about Japanese imports, allowing buyers to make an even more informed decision about their purchase.

The data is derived directly from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport & Tourism (MLIT) and other national databases, making VIMS the only inspection service in Malaysia with this level of official government data from Japan.

ATL is an award-winning used vehicle inspection specialist. They were the first company to carry out odometer inspections in Japan in 2001 and now have over 20 years of experience in the inspection of odometers and other pre-export inspections. ATL holds various government approvals that include the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to perform pre-export bio-security inspections and treatments in Japan and the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to perform vehicle structural inspections. ATL further maintains inspection and storage facilities covering all the major export ports in Japan ensuring a national coverage.

Vehicle data provided by ATL is of the highest credibility due to the source of the data originating directly from MLIT and other recognised sources. With this level of accessibility, buyers of all Japanese imports in Malaysia will be provided with accurate and credible information for a better purchasing experience.
