Drive Better with Regular Logbook Servicing on the Gold Coast

We’ve all heard the expression, ‘prevention is better than cure’ and when it comes to maintaining your car never has a truer word been spoken.

It’s no coincidence that those that see their car mechanic on a regular basis, and not just when they are having car trouble, tend to have fewer issues overall.

Drive better with a regular logbook service. You might be asking, what is the difference between a regular service and a logbook service, lets take a look.

The difference between a regular service and a logbook service

A general service looks at the basics that keeps your car running. Your car mechanic would look at replacing the engine oil and filter. There would be an assessment under the bonnet and the body of the car, this will include checking the fluid in your vehicle, an inspection of the brakes, tyres and lighting system.

A logbook service inspection is carried out to the manufacturers’ specifications. A vehicle logbook provides a guide as to what the manufacturer needs changing at predetermined time intervals. The logbook will serve as a guide and a record of this maintenance work. Our car mechanics will perform any work that is required by the manufacturer at the appropriate time.

What are the advantages of having a logbook service

  • Many manufacturers will only honour their warranty if you can show evidence that you have been maintaining your vehicle as per your logbook.
  • A logbook service will ensure you are within the legal guidelines, such as maintaining the tread of your tyres, your lighting system is in proper running order and your car is roadworthy.
  • An engine experiences most of its wear and tear in the first few years, so whilst many people think its unnecessary to take a new vehicle to the car mechanic in some cases it’s more important.
  • A well-maintained car that has a thorough service history is a great selling point and will help with maintaining your car’s value.
  • Your car mechanic at GCSSB on the Gold Coast has been trained to identify issues that could turn into problems later down the line. By identifying issues early on you can stop them turning into major and more costly issues. This preventative maintenance will prolong the life of your car.
  • A logbook service will give you peace of mind that you and your family will be driving a safe vehicle.
