The warranty that comes with a new vehicle is important for the buyer's peace of mind, and having your new vehicle regularly serviced is often a requirement of your warranty agreement. While the dealer will try to insist that your vehicle's scheduled services need to be performed at the dealership, this isn't actually the case.
Save yourself the inconvenience and added cost of letting the dealer perform your vehicle's logbook services by bringing it into our workshop, your trusted Caboolture car mechanic. We're able to perform logbook services on all makes and models of 4x4s, from family vehicles and off-roaders to light commercial utes and vans, as well as all petrol and diesel passenger cars. Contact us to book your next logbook service today.
We are conveniently located to service vehicles not only in Caboolture, but those coming from Morayfield, Beachmere, and beyond.
