Logbook Services

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of mechanical parts failure. This warranty is voided if you do not have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at Bathurst Auto Repairs our fully certified mechanics can provide logbook services for all:

  • Petrol passenger vehicles
  • Diesel passenger vehicles

To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!

Vehicle Inspections

If you’re selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you must first acquire a Roadworthy Certificate (RWC), provided by an Approved Inspection Station. The RWC ensures that your vehicle meets the legal safety requirements to be driven on Tasmanian roads.

If you’re looking at buying a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. The pre-purchase inspection is a thorough check of the vehicle that ensures you know exactly what you’re buying and avoid any nasty surprises. Here at Bathurst Auto Repairs we also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for you to factor into your purchasing decision.

Bathurst Auto Repairs is an Approved Inspection Station and we can happily provide you with both Roadworthy and Pre-purchase inspections, so if you need either, contact us today!

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of collisions, your brakes are purely preventative, and well-maintained brakes are often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop. Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, as they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop, every day. For this reason we agree with major manufacturers that you should get your brakes checked at least annually.

Here at Bathurst Auto Repair, our skilled mechanics can help you with the following brake services:

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

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

Steering & Suspension

Faults in your vehicle’s steering and suspension cause issues with both handling and ride comfort, causing vibrations and play in the steering wheel, and body lean through corners, respectively. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road, and a defective suspension can increase your stopping distance.

Bathurst Auto Repair’s experienced technicians can provide the following steering and suspension services:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing
  • Busing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement
  • Lift kits and other 4WD upgrades

If you find yourself bracing for speedbumps, get in touch today!

Clutch & Transmission

Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is comprised of some of the most complex and intricate pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Due to the sophisticated nature of the machinery, any minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly and damaging repairs.

If you notice a clicking noise at full turn, are having trouble changing gears or hear a grinding or clunking noise when you do, or notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, then you might have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

Bathurst Auto Repairs’ expert mechanics can help you with:

  • Transmission servicing
  • Transmission repairs and replacement

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 can cause a host of problems, including reduced power, fuel efficiency and even engine lifespan as leaking coolant damages the head gasket and expansion caused by overheating warps the cylinders and piston heads. If issues with your cooling system are ignored for long enough, it will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a second-hand car.

Here at Bathurst Auto Repairs our skilled mechanics can provide the following cooling system repairs:

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

If your vehicle is overheating or leaking coolant, contact us today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more of their systems and functionality are being governed by the network of onboard computers, commonly referred to as auto-electrics. From monitoring fuel consumption and playing music 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.

If your check engine light has illuminated, bring your vehicle to Bathurst Auto Repairs and our expert auto electricians will plug our top of the line diagnostic scan tools into your on-board network, and generate and analyse a detailed report. Once they have discovered the source of the problem, our auto electricians can:

  • Battery test and replacement
  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Component replacement
  • Accessory repair and installation

If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dashboard, get in touch today!

Tyres & Wheels

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in how much traction you exert on the road. Tyre manufacturers design their tyres to provide acceptable grip even as the tyres wear, with built-in redundancies that allow the tyres to continue to work. The condition of your tyre treads are especially critical during wet weather, where they act as channels to divert the water away from the contact patches.

Here at Bathurst Auto Repairs we can provide the following tyre services:

  • Tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:
    • Passenger cars
    • Trucks
    • 4WD

If your tyres are looking a bit bald, talk to us today!
