WOW I bought my car in for a Quote on a clutch after I had a service at the local Nambour dealer I bought the car from and was told I need a clutch kit and the parts are not covered in our warranty. Bill was going to be $1600 on top of a $400 service on a Suzuki Alto. I took the car to Jose St and not only did I get good advice but he looked at the Alto and adjusted the clutch for free so it works without grinding the gears.

Excellent service turned up unannounced when my A/C packed up although they were busy they took the time to have a look and fixed it for me at no charge as it was a simple fix. They have won me and I will not need to look any further for a trustworthy mechanic.

Greg H.

Excellent guys and excellent old school service. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Have even moved away and still take my car back there to be serviced. They are so very obliging, they keep you informed the whole way and will go out of their way to assist. You couldn’t ask for better mechanics.

I had my brake pads done and they work great – no problems at all. Young guy was very friendly and dropped me at work and picked me up when the car was ready. Another chap went through every item on the invoice and explained what they did and why (they quoted first). Very good service.

Kay H.

These guys are awesome. So nice and friendly and the best thing of all they don’t rip you off and charge you for repairs that weren’t needed or necessary. Quick and easy to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you want things explained properly. Very pleased.

Cooper A.

Simply the BEST mechanics we have been to. Honest, timely & they gave me a full comprehensive report so I knew exactly what was happening with the car & they gave me a 10% seniors discount!

Aaron B.

I came away very satisfied with the car service I received. The team were friendly and explained everything clearly. I appreciated the affordable price, honesty, integrity and peace of mind I was left with.

Linda B.

For the last 5 years we have taken both of our European cars to Nambour Car Service and have been very happy with the service, price and quality of work. We do recommend.

Logbook Servicing by some of the Best Mechanics in Sunshine Coast

Yes, our Nambour mechanics can, without a doubt, service your new car without affecting your manufacturers warranty.

When it comes to a manufacturers handbook service or car logbook servicing it’s important to understand that you’re not tied into expensive dealership service.

Our Nambour automotive services use either genuine parts, or parts that meet the manufacturers specs ensuring that your new car warranty remains intact.

In a manufacturers handbook service (car logbook service), the dealer will only look at the areas that they have listed in their schedule.  When we do  logbook servicing, not only do we follow their full schedule, we carry out our own thorough vehicle inspection looking at  all other aspects of the vehicle.  If there’s a fault with your new car, you want it picked up before it’s out of new car warranty, and that’s what we look for.

Not only do our auto mechanics offer a more comprehensive manufacturers handbook service, we’re cheaper!

The following is an extract from the ACCC consumer express – September 2002.

Motor vehicle dealers are entitled to insist that any servicing performed on cars they sell is carried out by qualified staff, according to the manufacturer’s specifications, and using genuine or appropriate quality parts where required.

Where a problem arises with the vehicle (i.e. other than servicing requirements) that is covered under the warranty, the vehicle should be taken to the dealer for repair.

Qualified staff is a party or parties, other than an ‘authorised dealer’, who is capable of performing car servicing. If an independent agent implies that it can perform general car servicing to manufacturers’ specifications and does not perform that function satisfactorily, then the consumer has rights and remedies against the agent regardless of whether the agent has factory qualifications or not.

Genuine or appropriate quality parts

The issue here is not who manufactured the part/s, it is whether the part/s are fit or appropriate for the purpose intended. If a part is non-genuine, but is interchangeable with the genuine part, it could be seen as being fit or appropriate for the purpose and would therefore not void the manufacturer’s warranty.

However, it must also be noted that should the part/s installed by auto service mechanics fail or not perform satisfactorily, the consumer then has rights against the fitter and/or manufacturer of those replacement parts. If the non-genuine part fails, and causes some other damage to the vehicle, the dealer will not be liable for damage caused by the failure of that part.

Provided these conditions are met, the new car warranty should remain intact. Dealers are not, however, entitled to impose conditions beyond this in an effort to restrict trade, or unreasonably require the purchaser to buy car services from an agent of their choice.

Dealers are not permitted to limit their obligations under the warranty and refund provisions, or make any representations to this effect, eg. that the warranty is void if the car’s logbook servicing is not carried out by the dealer or its agent. Provided consumers do research and ensure that wherever they take a vehicle for servicing, the auto service mechanics are qualified and all other provisions above are met, the warranty will be safely intact for the warranty period.
