Logbook Car Service

Take advantage of our expertise in logbook car servicing, especially if your car is still under warranty.

When you book in your car for a logbook car service, it will be carried out as per the manufacturers specifications using reputable brand parts and Penrite or manufacturer equivalent oils. The ensures that the work has been completed to the manufacturer’s standards in the event your vehicle requires unscheduled warranty repairs by the dealer.

Choosing a Mechanic for your Regular Car Servicing

Please keep that in mind when choosing someone to service your car, price is important. But – the service at the cheapest price may not be the best option for the long-term performance of your car.

On the other hand, make sure you read the fine print and your car is isn’t over-serviced with add-ons that become additional yet unnecessary costs above the price of your service.

Terminology around ‘Car Servicing’

The terminology around servicing modern vehicles can get confusing. A Full Service offered by many mechanics isn’t the same as a Logbook Service. Yes you want the logbook stamped, but the stamp isn’t worth much if your car is still under warranty and something goes wrong due to components not being replaced when they should have been.

Logbook Service

This is what the manufacturer specifies will need to be replaced / checked / cleaned / adjusted in order maintain the vehicle’s warranty. It is imperative that the correct engine oil be used. There are so many variations of vehicle oils and using the wrong oil can have detrimental effects on your car.

Capped Price Car Servicing

Capped price car servicing is generally a dealer service to entice customers. Ensure you check what is actually being carried out on the service. We can’t guarantee to beat a dealer capped-price service every time but please don’t hesitate to ask. Capped price car servicing is generally a dealer service to entice customers.

Fixed Price Car Servicing

Fixed price car servicing is very similar to capped price servicing. The idea is that you book your vehicle in for a service based on an initial quotation (usually online). On collection of your vehicle, the final invoice price will be exactly what you were quoted. Fixed price car servicing is very similar to capped price servicing.

What happens when we uncover something that needs repair outside of what is included in your car service:

On occasion, during a car service, we may uncover a repair that needs to be carried out. If this happens when we are servicing your car, you will be contacted immediately to advise you of the repair needed, the cost involved and to request your approval before carrying out the repair. This way there are no nasty surprises or ‘bill shock’ when you come to collect your car. On occasion, during a car service, we may uncover a repair that needs to be carried out.

Service intervals, oil quality and oil change periods

Car engines and oil quality has improved greatly in the past 30 or so years and as a result, Manufacturer service intervals have increased too.  For some models the service interval can now can range from 10,000 to 25,000kms and even up to 2 years for some models.

Unfortunately this gives car owners a sense of security by assuming that keeping to these recommended intervals the engine will be trouble-free. This is far from the truth.

In most owners’ handbooks, the manual will mention things like personal driving habits, and road conditions where the service intervals by kilometers do not apply.

Using the right oil for your car

Water vapour, unburnt fuel and gases from the combustion process can overload your engine oil and combines to form sludge deposits on your engine. Engine sludge clogs the oil galleries and limits lubrication to moving parts inside the engine which can lead to costly repairs. It takes about 15 – 20 kilometers from an engine at cold start to fully warm up and reduce the rate of contamination.  This is why we change the engine oil.

That’s also why using a quality oil and changing it regularly is paramount.  When poor quality or incorrect oil is used in an engine it doesn’t have the right additives or viscosity to begin with – which leads to premature sludge build up. On numerous occasions we’ve seen a vehicle with a “full service history” from the manufacturer arrive with a sludgey engine.

Castrol hit the nail in the head a few years back with “oils ain’t oils” campaign and they were spot on. Next time you’re at Ashmore RWC and Automotive Services, have a look at our oil shelf.  What you will see is sometimes up to 20 different variants of engine oil in stock. We’re serious about putting the right oil in your car and helping your engine last the distance – not adding you to the growing number of car drivers needing an engine replacement.

Next time your vehicle is due for a general service, logbook service or capped price service, give us a call – 0498 149 337.

Some words from our owner, Nick Thomas

There are mechanic shops everywhere. How do you choose the best mechanic to look after your car?  Being in my position, car servicing is something I’ve never had to worry about. I’ve been a mechanic since was able to drive and my father is in the automotive industry too.  There can be lots of information and promises made on various mechanic websites but actions speak louder than words.  Price is one thing, but you also need to consider the quality of the parts, and whether the mechanic who is working on your car is adequately qualified.   I’ve had experience over the years working at larger franchised mechanics and I can tell you first-hand that a branded company does not necessarily mean you’ll get a better outcome for your car – or your wallet.
