New Car & Log Book Servicing
What is a Log Book Service?
When a new car is sold the manufacturer provides a log book as part of the delivery package. This booklet provides both owners and technicians with vital information regarding the anticipated service procedures, inspection points and servicing intervals required for the safe operation of the vehicle.
This ensures the best possible mechanical operating environment for your car, avoiding unnecessary repair costs because of lack of maintenance.
These typically include:
- Brake system inspection
- Lubrication and Filter changes
- Belt adjustments
- Suspension checks
- Steering component checks
- Engine Flushes
- Fuel system flushes
- Coolant /Cooling system inspections and flushes
- Retightening of noted components to specific torque settings
- Also other vehicle specific requirements
- Lighting and electrical system checks
- Exhaust system checks
- Tyre pressure and wear checks
To retain your warranty the log book must be stamped by the service centre and parts/lubricants used must be of equal to or better than the original vehicle manufacturers specifications.
