Scheduled services vary from vehicle to vehicle, but most manufacturers recommend oil changes every 10,000 – 15,000kms, regardless of whether it has new car warranty. Due to our harsher climate conditions, engine oil can lose its viscosity which can cause long-term, costly damage to the engine.
We recommend servicing your car at least every 6 months or 5,000kms.
Benefits of regular servicing of your vehicle include:
- Extends the performance and life of the engine,
- Ensures your car runs economically
- Avoid costly repairs
- Maintains its roadworthiness
- Retains the value of your car
We offer a range of services to suit your car’s needs and your budget.

When you buy a vehicle under warranty you are required to carry out scheduled (logbook) services recommended by the car’s manufacturer, which is usually every 6 months or 10,000kms so that you do not void the vehicle’s warranty.
Scheduled services vary depending on the make and model of the vehicle and a series of components and checks are recommended at each scheduled service.
The manufacturer also recommends taking the vehicle back to the dealership to ensure the service is performed appropriately.
We are authorised to perform logbook servicing as the manufacturer intended and use only warranty approved parts and oils to ensure you do not void your warranty, so you can have peace of mind that your vehicle’s warranty remains intact and you’ll have more money left in your pocket.
Is your car’s aircon not cooling the way it used to? One of the most common causes could be a leak in the a/c system. We offer a range of a/c services including leak detection, repairs and re-gas at competitive prices.
Your brakes are your vehicle’s most important safety feature, with the potential to make the difference between an emergency stop and an expensive trip to a panel beater. It’s also one of the areas of your vehicle most susceptible to wear and tear, particularly with the stop-start nature of urban driving.
We can conduct a host of brake repairs for all makes and models of vehicles. We can replace worn brake pads, discs and drums, or machine the surface of your existing brake parts for longer life. We can also check your brake hydraulics for leaks and make repairs to cables and pedals to ensure your vehicle has all the stopping power it needs.
Some of the signs that your brake system needs a check-up include:

- A grinding or squealing sound when you press the brake pedal
- The car pulls to one side when you brake
- The brake pedal is hard to press
The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them. A clutch works because of friction between a clutch plate and a flywheel. We offer a range of hydraulic and mechanical clutch repairs.

- Clutch slips, which causes lack of power to the wheels
- Loss of hydraulic pressure of the clutch pedal
- Clutch bearing becomes noisy when engaging clutch pedal

Late model vehicles come equipped with numerous sophisticated control modules, which monitor various systems within the vehicle. If there is a fault within the vehicle, it is stored in the control module and usually a light appears on the dashboard.
We have the latest, updated equipment and resources to read the fault code, and diagnose the problem in a timely manner.
