Frequently Asked Questions

    How do you contact me when my car is ready?

        We can ring or email you when your car is ready. We will confirm how you would like to be contacted when you drop the car off.

    Why is regular servicing important?

        A regular car service is important to keep your vehicle in top condition. Keep up with your servicing and make an appointment to bring it into Mechanical Care. Our qualified and experienced mechanics will pay attention to every detail to ensure that your car meets the highest possible standards of performance and safety.

    What is involved in a minor service?

        Every Mechanical Care minor service includes a full lube service, an engine oil change, a fresh oil filter, a full brake inspection and a vehicle safety report.

    What is involved in a high-tech tune?

        Every Mechanical Care high-tech tune includes a diagnostic check and a high-tech electronic tune up, including spark plugs and points if required. This service excludes fuel, air filters and platinum and precious spark plugs.

    What is involved in brake fluid replacement?

        Every Mechanical Care brake fluid replacement service includes bleeding of the entire system. It excludes ABS.

    What is involved in a ‘brake service only’?

        Every Mechanical Care ‘brake service only’ includes a full brake system inspection, a written report, cleaning and adjustments in conjunction with the above services.

    What is involved in car air conditioning servicing?

        Over time, the air conditioning gases in your car will escape from the AC or climate control system. This is because car air conditioning systems are designed to leak.

        Manufacturers recommend that air conditioning systems (AC and climate control) are serviced every two years, which includes evacuating the refrigerant gas, replacing the lubricating oil and carrying out a system leak test. Maintenance will save you money in the long run and guarantees you comfort in the hottest months.

    Should I expect additional service items?

        If there are any additional service items, then we will quote on these while we are on-site. We always get your approval before any such work is carried out. If we don't have your approval, no further work is done on your vehicle — only what was originally agreed to at first contact. There will be no nasty surprises when you pay for your service.

    Does it cost more to service a European car?

        Generally, it shouldn't. We locate European car parts from all over the world and have suppliers in the UK, USA, Singapore and across Europe. We locate genuine European car parts at a lower cost than you might pay in Australia. We pass this saving onto our customers to ensure that they are not paying for the pleasure of owning and maintaining a European car. Ask us for an estimate today.
