For the few years after buying a new car, the warranty that comes with it will protect you to a certain degree from unexpected repairs and expenses to do with maintaining your vehicle. To keep the warranty intact for as long as possible, you’re often required to bring your vehicle in to a reputable auto repairer for regular logbook servicing.
We’re able to provide logbook servicing for all makes and models of petrol, diesel and LPG powered vehicles, from passenger cars to light commercial vehicles. We’ll give you early notice of any developing mechanical faults before they become serious problems, and allow you to keep your warranty intact.

Your brakes are arguably your vehicle’s most important safety feature, but with the start-and-stop nature of city driving they can often experience wear and tear quite quickly, affecting your vehicle’s ability to come to a stop when you need it to.
We can provide a range of brake services for all makes and models of vehicles, including replacement and restoration of brake pads, rotors and drums.

Steering And Suspension
Worn or faulty components in your vehicle’s steering or suspension systems can create a host of problems in your vehicle’s handling or overall ride comfort, from ‘play’ in your vehicle’s steering or unresponsiveness behind the wheel, to body roll when going through corners on the road.
We can check your suspension and steering for trouble spots, and recommend from a range of replacement parts including car springs, shock absorbers and bushes. We can also make repairs to your vehicle’s power steering systems and axle, to tighten up your vehicle’s handling, and conduct wheel alignments for optimal grip with the road and greater control.

We can provide a range of services for your vehicle’s drivetrain, from clutch repairs to manual and automatic transmission servicing.
