Logbook Service

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of mechanical parts failure. However, this warranty is void if you do not have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic-who will record and stamp your vehicle’s logbook.​ Here at Bowral Auto Care we can provide logbook services for all petrol and diesel passenger vehicles.​

We also perform pre-purchase inspections, so that you know exactly what you’re buying. We can also 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 in your vehicle. While other safety systems mitigate the damage of a collision, your brakes are purely preventative, and well maintained brakes can mean the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.​​

Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear. After all, they routinely bring tons of metal to a complete stop several times a day. For this reason, we agree with manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.

Bowral Auto Care’s skilled mechanics can provide the following brake services:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake line repair or replacement
  • Brake restorations

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

Steering & Suspension

Defects in your vehicle’s steering and suspension dramatically affect steering and ride comfort, causing looseness in the steering wheel and body roll through corners. In addition to ride comfort, your suspension also affects road contact, and a poor suspension will substantially increase your stopping distance.​​​

Here at Bowral Auto Care we can help you with:

  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs
  • 4WD Lift kits and other upgrades

Air Conditioning

There’s not much worse than being stuck in a car without air conditioning in the australian summer. Interestingly, your air conditioning degrades more when you’re not using it than when you are. The rubber seals and tubing that comprise a large percentage of your air conditioning system dry out and crack when not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.​

Bowral Auto Care can completely fix your air conditioning, starting by repairing or swapping out faulty compressors and condensers, then replacing any cracked tubing, and finishing by de-odourising and re-gassing your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.​

If your air conditioning isn’t working this summer, don’t sweat it! Contact us today!

Clutch & Transmission

Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is composed of some of the most intricate and sophisticated pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Due to their complex nature, minor flaws in the drivetrain can quickly escalate into very costly repairs if not addressed promptly.​

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

Bowral Auto Care’s experienced mechanics can provide the following drivetrain services:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual gear box repairs and servicing

If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, talk to us today!

Radiators & Cooling Systems

If your vehicle’s cooling system is malfunctioning, it will not only reduce power and fuel efficiency, but also the lifespan of your engine, as leaking coolant damages the head gasket and expansion caused by overheating damages the cylinders and piston heads. ​​

If this is not addressed and allowed to continue, it will eventually render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being similar to that of buying a second-hand car.​ ​

Here at Bowral Auto Care we can help you with:

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

If your vehicle is overheating, get in touch today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, more and more of a vehicle’s systems are being managed by the network of on-board computers. These computers handle everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to helping with braking, transmission, and even pre-emptively putting your vehicle into limp mode if a serious fault is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.​

Bowral Auto Care’s expert auto electricians can provide the following auto electrical services:

  • Diagnostics
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component test and replacement
  • Starter motors and alternators
  • Electronic engine tuning
  • Recoding ignition keys for Holden and Ford

If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dashboard, contact us today!

Tyres & Wheels

Tyre manufacturers design their tyres with built in redundancies that allow the tyres to continue to provide acceptable grip, even as they wear. If your wheels are misaligned however, these designs are useless, as the misaligned wheels cause uneven wear that manufacturers cannot predict or account for.

Here at Bowral Auto Care we can organise:

  • Major tyre brands for all makes and models
  • Wheel alignments
  • Tyre Fitting

If your tyres are looking a bit bald, get in touch today!
