FAQs:

How often should my car be serviced?

As a general rule, you should have a service every six months or every 10,000 km (whichever comes first).

If your car is old or you drive it in more extreme conditions, you may need to bring it in sooner, about every three months or 5,000 km.

Is it illegal to not service my car?

Although the rules are different for each state and territory, a safety certificate is legally required when a car has been sold, over a certain age or has been written-off and then repaired.

The exact requirements are different from state to state. Generally, all certificates are designed to ensure the safety of the vehicle. Only approved garages have been granted permission for safety certification inspections.

While a safety certification on a vehicle is a legal requirement, an annual service is not. That being said, if you miss certain major services, you may not pass your safety certificate.

There are important reasons to maintain a regular service:

  • Safety: Vehicles will have gradual wear and tear. Regular services fix out-of-sight issues and retain the safety and roadworthiness of the vehicle.
  • Save Money: Avoiding services can lead to more expensive repairs than the upfront service cost in the long run.Increase Vehicle Life-span: Regular servicing is necessary to keep your vehicle running for a long time. Without regular servicing, your car may fail the safety certification.
Does my car need a full service annually?

A full service should be done annually or every 20,000km (whichever comes
first).

A full service is a more comprehensive service than your regular light service. This will also include the replacement of engine oil, oil filter and air filter.

How often should a vehicle be serviced?

Vehicles vastly differ from each other, so the type of vehicle you drive dictates theregularity of your servicing. You should always check your owners manual for a comprehensive understanding of when to service your car.

That being said, a general guideline is to:

  • Every six months or 10,000 km (whichever comes first)
  • A full service once a year
  • A major service every three years or every 40,000 km.
  • A light service every 5,000 km or every three months for vehicles driving in difficult conditions or older years.
At what mileage should a car be serviced?

As a general rule, cars should be serviced every 12,500km or every six months(whichever comes first).

From there, the type of service will change depending on the overall mileage of the car, alternating between light, full and major services:

  • Every six months or 10,000 km
  • A full service once a year
  • A major service every three years or every 40,000 km
  • A light service every 5,000 km or every three months for vehicles driving in difficult conditions or older year

Different components of the car will need to be changed at different times based on mileage or time:

  • Oil change 8,000-16,000 km
  • Air Filter 15,000 km
  • Fuel Filter 48,000 km
  • Fluids 48,000 km
  • Spark Plugs 65,000 km
  • Brakes 80,000-95,000 km

Can I service my own car?

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) states that while
it does not need to be serviced at a dealership, it does need to be done by a qualified mechanic. Going against this will void your warranty and sometimes your insurance.

Some dealerships offer an ‘extended’ warranty after the completion of the manufacturer’s warranty. In these cases imposing conditions may imply.

What happens if I don’t service my car?

If you have missed a service by a few hundred kilometres and your vehicle is well
maintained generally, you will be fine.

The longer you leave services, the more likely there are underlying issues with the car. It will not be a well-oiled machine, literally.

Some issues include:

  • Hidden engine damage that does not show in your ability to drive the vehicle.
  • Safety on the road: your car may not be road-legal (roadworthy).
  • Driving a non-road-worthy vehicle can cause fatal accidents to yourself and the people around you.
  • Void your warranty and insurance.
  • Reduced fuel economy and performance of the vehicle.
  • Increased cost: Services prevent more expensive problems.
  • Reduced resale value: You are much more likely to gain a higher price for your car if you have a complete service history.
What is mobile car servicing?

Mobile car servicing is where qualified mechanics come to wherever you are, whether at your home or office and carry out repair and maintenance jobs. This type of servicing is a ‘travelling workshop’ enterprise; they carry all the tools they need to complete a comprehensive automotive repair wherever they go.
