Car Service "By the Book"
Many people believe they must go back to a car dealership for New Car Log Book servicing in order to maintain the warranty. Actually, the ACCC have consistently confirmed that under Australian Law, you are free to have your car service carried out by a mechanic or service centre of your choice provided they are qualified to do so.

Repco Authorised Service centres are fully qualified to perform log book servicing.
A vehicle log book is a guide provided by the vehicle manufacturer’s containing information on the specified or recommended service requirements. It guides your mechanic on exactly what needs attention at that specific service interval. It is also used as record of Services performed. Completing these services on time helps to preserve your vehicle’s re-sale value, extend the life of the car and to maintain the warranty.
The logbook in some vehicles includes a box which indicates that it should be stamped by an ‘authorised dealer’. The ACCC have confirmed that even if a logbook is labelled in this way, an independent repairer may sign or stamp the relevant page your service logbook without it affecting the manufacturer’s warranty, provided they are qualified to do so and that all essential requirements are met. Repco Authorised Service Centres are fully qualified to carry out your log book service and verify your log book service records.
