Vehicle Logbook Servicing: What You Should Know

As a vehicle owner, it can be difficult to know what you can and cannot do when it comes to your car’s maintenance. This is especially true when it comes to logbooks, with many people under the belief that logbook services can only be taken on by the original manufacturer.

At SSC Mechanics, we have provided hundreds of drivers with quality Airport West logbook services that are fully in-line with the manufacturer’s specifications and recommendations. That’s why, today, we’re going to take a quick look at what goes into a vehicle logbook service. So, if you’ve found yourself in need of maintenance, or are just curious about the process, read on!

What is a vehicle logbook?

During the warranty period of a vehicle, it’s always possible that faults and issues are going to arise. A vehicle logbook details the manufacturer’s specifications & recommendations regarding the servicing of your vehicle.

Whilst it’s often assumed that logbook servicing must be taken on by the vehicle’s original manufacturer, the ACCC has repeatedly confirmed that Australian law allows for this service to be taken on by any mechanic that is qualified to do so. So, suppose you are in need of servicing during your warranty period but still need to maintain your new car manufacturer warranty. In that case, a vehicle logbook service is how you do just that!

Now that we have the basics out of the way, it’s important to know what goes into your Airport West logbook service:

What’s involved?

When you bring your car in for an Airport West logbook service, you can be sure that your car will be serviced in accordance with all manufacturer specifications and requirements. Our vehicle logbook services aren’t reserved for minor changes and can involve anything from road tests and vehicle safety inspections to the changing of filters and spark plugs. For a full list of our vehicle logbook services, you can visit our logbook servicing page.

At the end of the process, we at SSC Mechanics will stamp your logbook to prove that your vehicle servicing has been completed in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications, which will show your continued new car manufacturer warranty eligibility.

Why it’s important to maintain servicing?

As with any piece of technology, there will be specifications and requirements set out by the manufacturer of your vehicle that are vital for keeping it functioning optimally. Because of this, having your vehicle checked, repaired and maintained to manufacturer standards will ensure that it is fully operational and providing peak performance both in the short and long term. Plus, maintenance is more effective, not to mention more affordable, than constant repairs, so staying proactive with your car care will allow you to save money over time.

Aside from the obvious benefits, regular logbook maintenance and services also provide you with the peace of mind that comes with knowing the exact conditions and requirements of your car. This is especially important for those that use their vehicle for work, as it will help you to avoid any unnecessary grief down the line that could come from a car refusing to operate at an inopportune time.

Who can stamp my logbook?

As touched on earlier, many people assume that logbook servicing and stamping can only be taken on by the manufacturer. However, Australian law dictates that logbook servicing and stamping can be taken on by any mechanic that is qualified to do so, and that includes us at SSC Mechanics. So, when you come down for your Airport West logbook service, you can be sure that you’ll be getting the same quality of service as you would from your manufacturer.
