Logbook Servicing

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, you are provided with a manufacturer’s warranty that will cover the cost of mechanical parts failures. This warranty is voided however if you do not have your vehicle serviced regularly by a certified mechanic, and record them in the vehicle’s logbook. Servicing is also a good idea in general, as maintenance is always cheaper than repairs.

Here at South Coffs Motors we are fully certified to provide logbook services for all petrol and diesel passenger vehicles. To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!

Vehicle Inspections

Generally, if your car is more than five years old, you may need an e-safety check (previously called a pink slip) before you can renew your registration. When you get your renewal notice it will say whether you need to get an e-safety check or not. The safety check ensures that your vehicle meets the legal safety requirements to be driven on the roads of New South Wales.

If you’re bringing a vehicle into NSW which has never been registered in the state before, you will require an AUVIS Inspection (Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Scheme, formerly called a blue slip) before you can register it. The AUVIS inspection ensures the safety of an unregistered vehicle, while also verifying that it meets the design and identity standards of NSW road laws.

South Coffs Motors is registered and licensed to provide both e-safety checks and AUVIS inspections, so if you need either, contact us today!

Brake Services

Well-maintained brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety features mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes are entirely preventative, and can be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Due to the stop-start nature of urban driving, your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, and we recommend you have them checked frequently.

South Coffs Motors’ experienced mechanics can provide you with the following brake services:

  • Brake component machining (disc rotors)
  • Brake component replacement ( brake pads, brake callipers, disc rotors, brake lines master cylinders and ABS diagnosing)

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

Steering & Suspension

Faults in your vehicle’s suspension and steering systems dramatically affect both ride comfort and control of your vehicle. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road, so a worn suspension increases tyre wear and decreases the stability of the vehicle.

Here at South Coffs Motors we can help you with:

  • Shock absorbers, coil springs and strut assemblies
  • Suspension and steering bush replacement
  • Power steering repair or replacement
  • Wheel alignment

If you’ve noticed play in your steering wheel, or your cabin leans when you turn, get in touch today!

Air Conditioning

Driving in the summer without air conditioning can be unbearable in Australia, especially in heavy traffic. Your air conditioning is unique amongst your vehicle’s systems – it will degrade more from disuse than from use. The myriad rubber tubing and seals that make up your vehicle’s air conditioning system, dry up and crack if not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your air conditioning of its cooling and heating efficiency.

South Coffs Motors can fully repair and diagnose your air conditioning system with our scan tool.  By checking and  replacing leaking condensers and air conditioning compressors, replacing cracked fluid lines and seals, then re-gassing your air conditioning and replacing the pollen filter.

If your air conditioning isn’t working properly talk to us today!

Clutch & Transmission

Responsible for delivering the power from your engine to your wheels, the drivetrain consists of some of the most intricate and precise pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, any flaws or faults in the drivetrain can quickly escalate into some extremely costly repairs.

If you notice whirring noises, vibrations, sudden gear shifting, a grinding noise when changing gears, or a slipping clutch, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s drivetrain.

South Coffs Motors can provide the following drivetrain services:

  • Clutch repair or replacement
  • DSG, automised manual gearbox, automatic and manual transmission repairs
  • Differential repairs
  • CV shaft replacement
  • Wheel bearing replacement

If your vehicle has any of the warning signs we mentioned above, contact us today!

Radiators & Cooling Systems

Faults in your vehicle’s cooling system not only affect your fuel efficiency, but also your engine lifespan as leaking coolant damages the head gasket, and overheating warps the cylinder head which damages the piston and cylinder walls. If this is left unchecked for too long, it can lead to the need to replace or recondition the engine.

Here at South Coffs Motors we can help you with:

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

If your car is running hot or you’ve noticed coolant leaks, get in touch today!

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical

With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, more and more tasks are handled by the onboard electronics. Your electronic system governs a multitude of systems, from engine management, transmission, brake control to your multimedia system, monitoring fuel economy and emissions.

If the vehicle engine check light is on that means your on-board computer has detected a fault in one of the systems in your vehicle. If you bring your vehicle into South Coffs Motors we can plug our top-of-the-line diagnostics scan tools into your computer and receive and analyse a detailed report of exactly what is wrong.

Our complex scan tools can also interface with a variety of vehicles that the standard scan tool cannot, including European vehicles.

Once we’ve analysed the problem we can replace any faulty components or help organise intensive auto electrical repairs for you, so talk to us today!
