My car has an automatic transmission.
If the vehicle was serviced by dealerships, then pulling a VIN report from the dealership should tell you what service has been completed. However, it’s hard to know for sure if service has been completed on a belt without having a professional mechanic complete a pre-purchase car inspection. Although you’ve recently bought the car, you might want to have one of our professional mobile mechanics complete this inspection to verify the condition of your car.
