Sydney Car Servicing & Auto Repairs

Sydney Car Servicing & Auto Repairs

For many Sydney-siders our cars mean the world to us, whether you need a car for work, your daily commute, to carry the family around or you simply enjoy the rumble of your car’s engine and taking it for a joy ride. Living in Sydney, it almost feels like a necessity to have a car, however, owning and making sure your car is in a reliable state can feel like a daunting task especially for European and prestige cars.

At VAR Automotive, servicing and maintaining prestigious European vehicles is our favourite thing to do, so let us discuss the different types of car servicing and auto repairs you might need to ensure your car is ready to take on whatever life throws your way and so you can enjoy it to the fullest.

European & Prestige Car Servicing

European and prestige cars are sought after by many in Sydney. The combination of performance, style, luxury and comfort are all features that give European cars their reputation, however, they come with a downside – finding a quality European car servicing centre can be difficult.

European cars are manufactured and built differently to domestic vehicles and often require mechanics to undertake specialised training to ensure the car servicing is completed correctly, and often required the use of specialised tools. This training and associated specialty tools are often expensive and difficult to acquire for the regular mechanic or service technician.

Independent Logbook Servicing

A logbook service is an important part of European car servicing and is generally performed according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Independent logbook services are documented, which is important to maintain consistency with servicing and ensure your car mechanic can keep track of what procedures have been performed. Independent Logbook Servicing also preserves your car’s warranty which is crucial for any European or prestige car owner.

Popular European car and prestige cars brands include:

All the above manufacturers have their own standards for car servicing and auto repairs which is why it is important you find a premium vehicle inspection in Sydney who will comply.
