When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you a warranty that covers the cost of most mechanical failures. This warranty is voided however, if you don’t take your vehicle for regular services from a certified mechanic and record those services in your vehicle’s logbook. A well maintained logbook will also increase your vehicle’s resale value, as potential buyers will be more eager to buy a vehicle that has been looked after. Regular services can also save you money in repairs in the long run, as regular maintenance tends to be cheaper and better for your vehicle than just waiting for mechanical failure and fixing that.
Here at Automobile Germany we can provide logbook services for:
- Petrol passenger vehicles
- Diesel passenger vehicles
- Light commercial vehicles

The brakes are the most important safety system your vehicle has. While other safety systems can mitigate the damage of an accident, your brakes are the only system that can prevent a collision altogether. Poorly maintained brakes increase stopping distance and the risk of skidding out of control, so for the safety of yourself and your passengers, please have your brakes checked regularly.
Here at Automobile Germany we can provide the following brake services:
- Brake component machining
- Brake line replacement
- General brake service
Steering and Suspension
As well as ride comfort, your suspension is responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road while driving. If your suspension is faulty, it will substantially increase your stopping distance, which is often the difference between an emergency stop and a collision.
Automobile Germany can help you with:
- Bushing replacement
- Lift kits
- Tension bars
- Power steering
- Shock absorbers and coil springs
- Sway bars
Most people don’t realise quite how important for engine operation the exhaust system is. The exhaust draws waste gases out of the engine bay, allowing fresh air to enter and fuel the combustion process. This means your exhaust affects your power output, fuel efficiency, and much more.
Here at Automobile Germany, our skiled technicians can help you with:
- Exhaust repairs
- Exhaust replacement
Australian summer driving can be unbearable if your air conditioning isn’t working. In addition to keeping you cool, your AC also provides heat during winter and defogs the windscreen. Surprisingly, your aircon actually degrades more when out of use than when in use. The myriad of rubber tubing, hoses and seals dry out and crack if disused, and the refrigerant gas leaks out, robbing your air conditioning system of its cooling power.
At Automobile Germany we can provide the following AC services:
- Leak check
- Tubing replacement
- TX valve replacement
- Compressor repair or replacement
Clutches & Transmissions
The drivetrain is a collection of some of the most intricate and precise pieces of machinery onboard your vehicle. Responsible for smoothly transferring power from the engine to the wheels, any faults in the drivetrain will quickly proliferate into highly damaging and costly repairs. If you notice a strange clunking noise when you change gears, smell burning coming from under the bonnet, or notice fluid leaking from the engine bay, you should get your transmission checked promptly as these are all signs of transmission faults.
Here at Automobile Germany we can help you with:
- Clutch repairs and services
- Automatic and manual transmission repair and service
- Slip differential repair and service
- Engine Blocks
- Cylinder heads
- EFI diagnostics
- Dyno tuning
- Injection systems
- Fuel pumps repaired or replaced
- Fuel injection cleaning
If your engine is running hot, it will not only decrease fuel efficiency and power, but actually damage itself, reducing its effective lifespan by degrading the gasket head, cylinders and pistons. If your thermostat is faulty, this could be happening without your awareness.

- Head gasket replacement
- Heater unit repair or replacement
- Radiator repair or replacement
- Thermostat check and replacement
Diagnostics And Auto Electrical
As modern vehicles increase in complexity, Electronic Control Units (ECUs) govern more of the vehicle’s operation. In addition to the traditional starter motor, alternator and headlights, most vehicle’s ECUs affect power, fuel efficiency and braking stability, to name just a few.
If your vehicle is being problematic, drive into Automobile Germany for a free basic diagnosis!
At Automobile Germany our automotive electricians can help you with:
- Alternators and starter motors
- ABS traction and stability control
- Battery testing and replacement
- Body electrics
- ECU testing and repair or replacement
- Lighting Systems
Tyres And Wheels
Your tyres’ treads are vital to providing traction and grip on the road, especially during wet weather. Tyre manufacturer’s design their tyres to survive a certain distance travelled, but these designs are worthless if your tyres aren’t fitted properly or if your wheels aren’t aligned properly, as it causes the tyre treads to degrade in unpredictable patterns. Reduced traction and grip lead to a multitude of dangers, including increased stopping distance and risk of skidding and sliding when braking.
At Automobile Germany we have:
- Major tyre brands for all makes and models
- Tyre fitting and balancing service
- Wheel alignment
