Logbook Servicing

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is voided if you do not have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Hughesdale Service Centre, our mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles
  • LPG vehicles
  • Electric/hybrid vehicles

To book your next logbook service with us, please get in touch today!

Brake Repairs

Your brakes are critical to the safety of yourself, your passengers, and drivers you share the road with. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes can often mean the difference between an accident and an emergency stop. Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of metal to a complete stop several times a day. For this reason, we agree with brakes manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Hughesdale Service Centre’s skilled mechanics can perform the following brake services:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake component machining
  • Brake hose repairs

If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, talk to us today!

Vehicle Inspections

Whenever you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you are first legally required to ensure your vehicle obtains a Roadworthy Certificate, issued by a licensed tester. The licensed tester conducts a thorough check of the entire vehicle, to ensure that it meets the safety standards to be legally driven on Victorian roads.

If you’re thinking about buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend arranging a pre-purchase inspection. The pre-purchase inspection is an exhaustive check of the vehicle that ensures you know exactly what you’re buying. Here at Hughesdale Service Centre, we can also provide you with an estimated cost of any repairs needed, for you to factor into your purchase decision.

Steering & Suspension

Faults and flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect steering and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Hughesdale Service Centre’s expert technicians can help you with:

  • Shocks, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing
  • Wheel alignment
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replace
  • Lift kits and 4WD suspension upgrades

If your teeth rattle on bumpy roads or your steering feels spongy, get in touch today!

Transmission Services

Your vehicle’s transmission is comprised of some the most complex machinery in your vehicle, and due to its sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly proliferate into some of the most costly repairs.

If you notice a clicking noise at full turn, are having trouble changing gears, or notice a grinding noise when you do so, or smell a burning scent coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s transmission.

Hughesdale Service Centre can service, repair and replace automatic and manual transmissions, so if you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, talk to us today!

Cooling Systems

A malfunctioning cooling system causes a myriad of problems, from decreased fuel efficiency and engine power to reduced engine lifespan as overheating and leaking coolant damages the engine block. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they can render the vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a secondhand car.

Here at Hughesdale Service Centre, our expert technicians can provide the following repairs to your cooling system:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, contact us today!

Auto Electrical Services

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed and monitored by the auto electrical network. This network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to assisting with braking and gear changing, and even put your vehicle into limp mode if a serious flaw is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.

Hughesdale Service Centre’s expert auto electricians can provide the following auto electrical services:

  • Full diagnostics
  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Accessory installation
  • Solar/battery systems
  • Component test and replacement

If you need any auto electrical repairs, get in touch today!

Tyres & Wheels

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor for traction and handling, especially during wet weather, where the treads of the tyre act as channels to divert the water away from the where the contact patches meet the road surface. Tyre manufacturers actually design their tyres to continue to provide acceptable grip as they wear, with built-in redundancies. These redundancies are only useful however, if your wheels are aligned and your tyres are balanced, as uneven alignment causes uneven wear which the manufacturers couldn’t possibly account for.

Here at Hughesdale Service Centre we can help you with:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Tyres from major brands for all makes and model of:
    • Car
    • 4WD

If your tyres are looking a bit bald, talk to us today!
