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 only valid, however, if your vehicle is regularly serviced by a mechanic, who records and stamps these warranties in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Prestige Car Service Centre, our mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles

Inspection Services

If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you have to obtain a Roadworthy Certificate, before you can even advertise the vehicle for sale. The Roadworthy Certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough and exhaustive inspection of the entire vehicle, ensures that your vehicle meets the safety standards to be safely driven on Victorian roads.

When you’re looking at buying a secondhand vehicle, we strongly recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. This inspection ensures that you know exactly what you’re buying, and helps you avoid nasty surprises. Prestige Car Service Centre can provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for you to factor into your purchase decision.

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems can reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor 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 brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Here at Prestige Car Service Centre our expert mechanics can provide the following brake services:

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

Steering & Suspension

Faults and flaws in your steering and suspension affect handling 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.

Here at Prestige Car Service Centre, our expert mechanics can help you with:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement

Clutch & Transmission

As part of the machinery that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are composed of some of the most intricate and precise machinery in your vehicle. Due to the sophisticated nature of this machinery, even minor faults and flaws can quickly proliferate into very costly repairs.

If you notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, are having trouble changing gears or hear a grinding noise when you do so, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s clutch or transmission.

Prestige Car Service Centre’s skilled technicians can provide:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual transmission repairs and servicing

Fuel Injection Servicing

Every time you run your car, carbon, varnishes and dirt are deposited into your fuel system. Over time, these impurities build up into deposits that can block intake valves and rob your engine of fuel economy, power output, while also increasing harmful emissions and increasing the chance of serious engine damage if left untreated.

Prestige Car Service Centre’s fuel injector cleaning will completely clear out your fuel system, including the fuel injectors, and remove all carbon, dirt, and other residue buildups. You will be amazed at the difference this can make to your driving experience, and if you’ve had your vehicle serviced elsewhere and it still doesn’t seem to be running right, try our Fuel Injection Servicing – it has a very good chance of making your car feel brand new again!

Exhaust Services

Most people can easily remember the petrol your engine needs to run properly. A lot of us forget about the second, equally important fuel: Oxygen. Without a steady supply of oxygen, the combustion in your engine doesn’t work so well, and if your exhaust isn’t drawing waste gases away from the engine bay, then the reduced oxygen intake will result in reduced engine power and fuel efficiency.

Here at Prestige Car Service Centre, our skilled technicians can provide the following exhaust services:

  • Exhaust repairs and replacement
  • Exhaust upgrades and modifications

Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause myriad problems, from reduced fuel efficiency and power output, to a shorter engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to the cost of a secondhand car.

Prestige Car Service Centre’s expert mechanics can help you with:

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

Auto Electrical

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

Prestige Car Service Centre’s skilled auto electricians can provide the following services:

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component test and replacement
  • Diagnostics
  • Audio installations
  • Lighting upgrades
  • Accessory installations
  • Solar/battery systems

Tyres

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in your grip and handling on the road, especially during wet weather, where the treads of your tyres act as channels to divert water away from where the contact patches meet the road. Tyre manufacturers design their products with built-in redundancies that allow them to continue to provide acceptable grip, even as they wear. These designs are rendered useless, however, if your wheels are misaligned, as misaligned wheels create uneven wear which the manufacturers could not account for.

Here at Prestige Car Service Centre, we provide tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:

  • Car
  • 4WD
  • Truck
