SSC Mechanics Logbook Services


Maintain your new car manufacturer warranty with a factory scheduled logbook service from SSC Mechanics in Airport West, Melbourne!

When getting your car serviced, it’s important that you are working with mechanics that understand your vehicle and what it requires. After all, each vehicle is different, and for those that wish to retain their warranty, certain processes need to be gone through to ensure that the manufacturer’s specifications are being met. That’s where your log book servicing comes in.

What is a Logbook?

Whilst it may sound like a throwaway term, the log book referenced in logbook servicing is a physical book filled in and maintained by your service mechanic. This book details every repair and maintenance job performed on your vehicle to ensure a comprehensive guide to all changes and work.

What is a Vehicle Logbook Service?

Also known as a hand book service, a log book service involves repairing and maintaining a vehicle in accordance with the specifications of the manufacturer. This will be different for different vehicles, and the requirements from the manufacturer must be adhered to for certain warranty purposes. After all, if you go to an inexperienced car service provider and something goes wrong with your vehicle as a result, the manufacturer may see that as reason enough to terminate your warranty.

Will My Vehicle’s Warranty Be Voided?

Absolutely not! A log book service from S.S.C Mechanics is a comprehensive service that ensures your vehicle is operating safely, economically and just as the manufacturer intended. Don’t be fooled by the common myth that all services and repairs have to be carried out by the dealer. As a licensed service provider, we are able to service new cars to the same manufacture services and parts standards; whilst maintaining the new car warranty.

What’s Included In A Log Book Service?

As an authorised service provider, S.S.C Mechanics can service your car as per the vehicle requirements. We will stamp your log book as per the manufacturer’s specifications, maintaining your new car warranty. Services can either be minor or major and can include the following (depending on the scheduled date and what is due at the time of service according to the manufacturer which may vary from vehicle to vehicle):

  • Replace fuel filter
  • Replace oil filter
  • Replace air filter
  • Replace cabin filter
  • Replace spark plugs
  • Inspect drive belts and pulleys

  • Vehicle safety inspection

Which specific services end up being provided as part of your logbook servicing will be dependant on the specifics of your vehicle. However, you can feel safe knowing that each and every one of the tasks perfect will be completed with the utmost care and attention as per manufacturer guidelines.

How Long Will My Log Book Service Take?

This is a difficult question to answer with much certainty, as it depends on both the complexity of the vehicle and the extent of repairs and maintenance. With that said, most reliable estimates would place the time to perform a comprehensive log book service at approximately 2-4 hours. Once again, this is just an estimate, and it’s best to allow for additional time and speak with your mechanic on the day to find out more.

How Much Does Log Book Servicing Cost?

Once again, this is unfortunately difficult to provide exact figures on. Each log book servicing is as unique as your vehicle, so prices will vary depending on a wide array of factors. However, we at S.C.C Mechanics will do everything we can to provide you with a fair, reasonable price. In general, the cost of comprehensive logbook servicing starts at $200.
