New Car Log Book Service
Port Kennedy Automotive Services can service your new car while keeping your dealership warranty intact.
To provide you with an instruction about recommended service intervals, procedures and inspection points, manufacturers issue a Log Book with every new car you buy. If you need service during your new car warranty period, call Port Kennedy Auto or book a service online!
Should I follow the dates in Log Book?
Yes! To enjoy that new car aura longer, you should definitely take your car in for regular inspections. The Log Book instructs how often, when and what should be serviced, inspected and replaced on your new car, according to the people who actually made the vehicle.
By taking your vehicle to Port Kennedy Auto, you make sure that your car is properly serviced and maintained "by the book". Service intervals are both time and distance based, and time is more important. The time passed between service centre visits means the oil and filters are near the end of their economical performance life, even if the indicated distance has not yet been covered - as acids, water and sludge build up quickly, especially on short commutes. Leaving the car unattended for too long will significantly decrease the functioning time of your car and even may reduce the vehicle maneuvering experience by lesser effectiveness of lubrication, cleaning and engine cooling.
But I only drive to work and shops...
To keep down costs, manufacturers have extended servicing times, however the small print in your log book tells that the vehicle needs more frequent servicing if used under abnormal driving conditions. Examples of such conditions are frequent braking, mountain driving, fast accelerating, short distances - basically most everyday commute to work and shops...
By inspecting your car by the guidelines in Log Book you will be maintaining your vehicle in the safest, most reliable state. It will also mean your car is kept in its peak performance state – extending the life of your car and avoiding any nasty, unexpected breakdowns or repairs.
Following your car’s log book schedule will also help to maintain a higher resale value if you ever decide to sell your car.
