Car Service "By the Book"

Sometimes known as a hand book service, a logbook service is when your car is serviced in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer specifications. It involves checking and/or replacing certain components and fluids on the vehicle at the time intervals recommended by the manufacturer.

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.

What is a Vehicle Log Book?

Tyre and wheel removal

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.


Who can Stamp my Log Book?

The log book 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 log book is labelled in this way, an independent repairer may sign or stamp the relevant page of your service log book without it affecting the manufacturer’s warranty, provided they are qualified to do so and that all essential requirements are met.

Burton & Scerra Motor Repairs is fully qualified to carry out your log book service and verify your log book service records.
