Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of any parts failures. This warranty is only valid if you have your vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Carmotive, our mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all passenger vehicles, including:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Electric/hybrid vehicles
If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you first have to obtain a roadworthy certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection. The roadworthy inspection ensures that your vehicle meets the legal requirements to be safely driven on Victorian roads,and you have to have a roadworthy certificate before you even advertise the vehicle for sale.
When you’re thinking about buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection, so you avoid any nasty surprises and know exactly what you’re buying.
We think that pre-trip inspections are vital if you’re planning a long road trip or a camping trip, simply because we think it’s a lot better to find a problem with your vehicle in a mechanic’s workshop than to find out about it in the middle of nowhere.Contact us today!
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems, like airbags, reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes suffer an astonishing amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of metal, glass and plastic to a complete stop. For this reason, we agree with manufacturers that your brakes should be checked annually.
Carmotive’s expert technicians can help you with:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering and Suspension
Faults and flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, and a poor suspension will increase your stopping distance.
Here at Carmotive, our skilled mechanics can help you with:
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Wheel balancing
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs and replacement
Your vehicle’s air conditioning degrades faster from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals dry up and crack if unused for long periods, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.
Carmotive’s expert technicians can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by swapping out any faulty condensers or compressors, then replacing any cracked tubing, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain its airtight.Contact us today!
Clutch and Transmission
As part of the assembly that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are made up of some of the most complex machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, even minor problems can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
Here at Carmotive, we can help you with:
- Repairs and replacement
- Manual transmissions
- Automatic transmissions
- CV Joints
The engine is the heart of your vehicle. If the engine breaks down, it doesn’t really matter whether the air conditioning is working or not.
Carmotive’s skilled technicians can provide the following engine services:
- Engine blocks
- EFI Diagnostics
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause multiple issues, including reduced fuel efficiency and power output, even decreased engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car!
Here at Carmotive, our proficient mechanics can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
Auto Electrical Services
If the engine is the heart of the vehicle, the auto electrical network is the brain.

- Alternators and starter motors
- Battery check and replacement
- Component test and replacement
