When you see your local Repco Authorised Service centre for your next car service you can be rest assured that our Auto-Tech trained staff will have your car back to optimal performance to keep you and your family safe on the road. Although it is viewed as a general tune up, we take great pride in our work and always make sure to perform a thorough service and inspection before we hand back the keys.
What goes into a general Repco car service?
To make sure your vehicle is properly tuned our car service performs a number of changes and top ups along with a thorough examination of vital components.
A general car service from a Repco Authorised Service centre will include an oil change with customer or manufacturer preferred oil, replacement of the oil filter, swapping out old spark plugs and an overall engine tune for efficient fuel consumption and optimal power.
Repco Authorised Service centre’s will also perform a 62 point safety report to help identify any issues your vehicle may have or problems that your vehicle could have in the future that represents a major safety issue. This report includes many items through a road test, under hood inspection, under vehicle inspection and an interior/exterior inspection.
Book online with your nearest Repco Authorised Service centre and get your vehicle back to peak performance.
Why your car needs regular servicing
Overtime vehicle wear and tear is inevitable and if it isn’t dealt with it can produce major issues for your vehicle, which will incur major repair costs or render the vehicle unroadworthy. You could even face devastating consequences if any critical components like braking, steering or suspension is involved. A general car service will help to prevent the above from occurring as your mechanic can pick up any potential problems before they become a hazard. While not only saving you money in the short term, it will also save you money over the long run as your car will be running at optimal efficiency keeping your fuel bills low!

Other car service options
We offer a range of other services to make sure you’re well looked after. Some of these services include:
Don’t click that car service coupon buy button just yet
Like anything else, there are always many "special offers" which abound for car service, especially in the many coupon type offers that are now available online. Some of these offers propose what appear to be huge savings on car service.
Offers like these vary in type and are sometimes referred to as "loss leaders" that are usually put out as a marketing exercise by an operator trying to recruit a new customer.
As a rule, you will only ever get what you pay for and it is good practice to carefully scrutinize the detail of such offers and get complete (written) clarification about exactly what you are getting.
Be sure to enquire as to what quality of parts and lubricants are being used, and especially the price of these items. Also confirm the cost of labour for any 'extra' services. Insist that no extra work be carried out without your express approval.
Whilst uncommon, there are unfortunately some unscrupulous operators who use heavily discounted offers to 'bait' a customer into their business, with the express intent of "up-selling" extra services at an inflated price.
That's not to say that add-on recommendations from these or any other mechanic are simply an unwarranted profit grab. Credible mechanics will only ever suggest valuable, if not essential services.
And that remains the challenge, to find a credible mechanic who charges a fair price for their expertise, uses quality parts and who only ever recommends necessary items or services. And preferably, they don’t have to resort to fancy marketing tactics to win your favour!
At the end of the day, there is a lot to be said about having a trusted and ongoing relationship with mechanic who is committed to looking after you and your car.
