What’s involved in a Log Book Service?
The timing and details of a log book service depends on the car. You should have received a manufacturer’s handbook with your car when you bought it and that will contain the specifications for your car’s ongoing log book servicing. The handbook/log book contains information about what should be serviced and when. Sticking to your log book service schedule is important for maintaining your vehicle’s statutory warranty. We perform fully qualified log book servicing on a wide range of makes and models including: Holden, Ford, Mazda, Toyota, Nissan, BMW, Audi, Hyundai, Honda, Kia – and many more.
Ensuring that your car is regularly serviced maintains the service history of your vehicle and keeps your manufacturer’s warranty intact.
We don’t have to have a physical log book in order to do a log book service – it just means we follow the manufacturers guidelines. We can certainly provide you with a log book to help you record your cars service history, which will be a benefit if you ever decide to sell your vehicle.
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.

CAR AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE

Today’s vehicles are sometimes complex and just like the engine, a vehicle’s air-conditioning system has elements that require to be serviced or replaced on a regular basis to ensure continued reliable and efficient operation.
Is keeping your car cool costing you fuel?
Evaporation may occur over time, or leaks may diminish refrigerant pressure, meaning your air-conditioning system will begin to deteriorate and has to work harder, which then in turn raises your fuel consumption.
Therefore, it is important that the rubber seals are evaluated regularly for any signs of leaks, or decline, which may contribute to an ongoing loss of refrigerant.
A car air-conditioning service, every twelve months, means you assist in protecting the air-conditioner against costly breakdowns, now and in the future, keep passengers safe by helping to prevent the build-up of potentially harmful substances and a well serviced car air-conditioner actually saves you money as it reduces the amount of fuel you use.
Browns Plains Service care about the environment and have Arctick Authorisation (AU48419) to reliably and responsibly conduct car air-conditioner re-gas, repairs, service and inspection.
