Stay on the Move

After your home, your car is often them most significant investment you make.   Keeping your vehicle well maintained is the best way to avoid system failures that can lead to expensive repairs and time consuming, inconvenient breakdowns.

What is a Serpentine System?

The serpentine system often referred to as the drive belt runs many of the essential systems in your vehicle, like the water and power steering pumps, air conditioning and alternator, so it’s important to make sure it’s in top condition. Essentially, a broken drive belt means time off the road for your car and a hit to your hip pocket.

Your local Repco Authorised Service centre recommends inspecting the serpentine system at 100,000 km and replacing worn components by 150,000 km or as advised by the manufacturer. We use and recommend the Gates brand of serpentine system replacement parts, which is trusted by vehicle manufacturers and mechanics worldwide.

Book in for your next service today and we’ll inspect your drive belt system as part of our 65 Point Vehicle inspection and help you stay on the move.  Find your local Repco Authorised Centre here.
