If you want a reliable and safe car that performs well, it’s important to look after it through regular servicing. Missing a car service to save money can be a false economy and could cost you more in the long term, as minor problems left unfixed can lead to major repairs.
A well maintained car will run smoothly and you will increase the life and maintain the worth of your vehicle.
When it comes to manufacturer’s handbook or logbook servicing, it is important to understand you are not tied into expensive dealership service.
What is a logbook service?
When you purchase a new car, it comes with a logbook which is a guide for your vehicle’s recommended service intervals. It outlines exactly when it should be serviced and what needs replacing.
What the ACCC says about new car warranties….
Can you get your car serviced by someone other than the dealership you bought your car from without voiding the warranty?
The short answer is ‘yes’ although there are some conditions.
Under a motor vehicle statutory warranty, manufacturers are only entitled to insist that:
• Servicing is carried out by suitably qualified staff
• Servicing is done in accordance to the manufacturers documented specifications
• Servicing is done using appropriate quality parts where required
Providing these conditions are met, regardless of where the car is serviced, your warranty will remain intact.
Why choose us?
When we carry out a logbook service, not only do we follow their schedule, we carry out our own thorough inspection looking at all other aspects of the vehicle. If there is a fault with your new car, you want it picked up before it’s out of warranty so the manufacturer can rectify it free of charge.
All parts and lubricants used are either genuine or meet and exceed OEM standards, so you can be confident that your warranty will not be void.
Is your car out of warranty, due for a service or maybe missed a service or two? We can combine manufacturers recommended service schedules with our vast experience, to tailor fit a service based on your car’s current state.
