Logbook Servicing

When buying a new car, the warranty that protects you from early mechanical faults is invaluable when it comes to protecting your peace of mind with your big purchase. Maintaining it requires regular servicing from a reputable auto workshop, and while many car dealers will try and convince you that this must be done at the dealership, you're able to have these logbook services performed almost anywhere you please. So why put yourself through the hassle and added expense of a dealership servicing?

Associated Tyre Service is able to conduct logbook servicing on all makes and models of petrol, diesel, LPG and electric/hybrid vehicles, saving you the trip back to the dealership and the extra cost that entails while also preserving your new car warranty. If your new vehicle's next scheduled service is approaching, contact us today to book your vehicle in.

Steering & Suspension

Your car's handling and ride comfort tie particularly closely with how well your vehicle's steering and suspension systems are maintained. Unresponsiveness or 'play' in your steering wheel can be traced back to problems with your steering systems, while ride comfort issues like body roll through corners are typically caused by a faulty suspension component.

Our team of experienced technicians can give your steering and suspension a complete service, from repairing and replacing springs, shock absorbers, bushings and coil-over suspension to maintaining your vehicle's power steering system, as well as suspension lowering, the installing of lift kits and other 4WD upgrades. If you'd like to give your vehicle's steering and suspension an inspection, book your vehicle in for a service by contacting us today.

Brakes

Your vehicle's brakes are your most important safety feature, but with the stop-and-start nature of city driving they're also arguably the most subject to wear and tear as well. Worn out brakes have much less stopping power than ones kept in good condition, and can also have a detrimental effect on your vehicle's handling and tyre wear if left unchecked.

Our team can inspect your vehicle's brakes for problems, and fit replacement brake pads, rotors, drums and discs as required. We're also able to machine custom-tailored parts specifically for your vehicle on-site, ensuring that your new components are a perfect match for your needs, as well as check your vehicle's brake hoses for fluid leaks. For more information about our brake services or to book your vehicle in, give us a call today.

Clutch & Transmission

If your vehicle's having trouble changing gears or staying in gear, or if there are burnt smells or strange noises coming from under the car, it's likely that there's trouble developing in your vehicle's gearbox or transmission. These can develop into expensive repairs if not checked and repaired early.

Our workshop can repair or replace your vehicle's manual or automatic transmission, as well as inspect your vehicle's clutch for problems, from sticking clutch pedals to clutch hose leaks or blockages. To find out more about our clutch and transmission services, give us a call today.

Exhausts

Your vehicle's exhaust is responsible for drawing spent air and fumes away from your engine, allowing it to operate at full efficiency. If you notice that your vehicle's losing power, or is going through fuel faster than normal, these are signs that your vehicle's exhaust might be damaged or not working properly.

Our team of experienced technicians can service and make repairs to your vehicle's exhaust, or replace it entirely with a new header or extractor from our range of aftermarket exhaust solutions. Contact us today to find out more.

Air Conditioning

Particularly in Australia, a properly functioning air conditioner in your vehicle is vital to driver and passenger comfort. Driving in our country's warmer months without air con can be a nightmare. Like any other area of your car, your air conditioning system is subject to wear and tear, with cracks and leaks more likely to develop in cooler months with disuse of your vehicle's climate control.

If your air conditioning isn't blowing as coolly as it used to, we're able to inspect your air conditioning unit for leaks and cracks, as well as fit replacement thermostats, hosing and seals, before giving your air con a re-gassing to keep your cabin cool all summer long. Contact us today if you'd like to know more.

Radiators & Cooling

Your vehicle's engine is dependent on being able to operate at the ideal temperature for maintaining peak performance, making your vehicle's cooling systems essential to the proper health of your vehicle. Overheating can cause a number of issues, from coolant leaks and damage to your engine's pistons to inconvenient breakdowns that could leave you stranded.

We're able to provide a range of services to get your vehicle cool again, from radiator and heater unit repairs and replacement to head gasket repairs, thermostat checks and a coolant flush to remove blockages in your coolant lines. If your vehicle's overheating, have it checked out by our team as soon as possible; call today to make a booking.

Diagnostics & Auto-Electrical

As vehicles become more and more sophisticated, having properly functioning electrical system to keep your vehicle's various on-board electronics in working order is more important than ever. A fault in your vehicle's electrics can cause anything from a malfunctioning car stereo to faults in your vehicle's more essential systems, such as airbag deployment.

We're able to provide a complete service for all of your auto-electrical needs, from checking and replacing old batteries, starter motors and alternators to a full diagnostic check, allowing us to locate and mend various other electrical faults in your vehicle. We can also fit new lighting upgrades and other electrical accessories to your vehicle. Contact us today to find out more.

Roadworthy Inspections

If you want to sell your vehicle or transfer ownership of it to a third party, or if you want to re-register it after spending a lot of time off the road, your vehicle needs to be certified as roadworthy by a qualified mechanic or technician. This typically involves a safety check and inspection of your vehicle's essential components, to ensure it's ready for the road.

Associated Tyre Service is staffed by a VicRoads Licensed Vehicle Tester, able to conduct roadworthy inspections on all passenger cars and light commercial vehicles for drivers in Moorabbin, Cheltenham, Bentleigh and all surrounding areas.

To have your vehicle certified as roadworthy:

  • Book your vehicle in for a roadworthy inspection (RWC) by giving us a call on (03) 9583 6452, sending us an email via our contact page or talking to us in person at our workshop in Cheltenham.
  • Bring your car in for the inspection along with your drivers licence, and a licensed vehicle tester will assess your car. If the vehicle passes the inspection a Roadworthy Certificate will be issued.

If your vehicle fails the first inspection:

  • We will provide a list of items that will need to be rectified for the certificate to be issued. We will also provide you with a quote of the repair costs required.
  • Any required repairs are to be carried out within seven days of the failed inspection. Repairs can be carried out by our fully trained technicians or a workshop of your choosing.
  • Make a booking for a re-inspection. This must be done within seven days of the failed inspection. If the repairs are satisfactory and your vehicle passes the second inspection, a Roadworthy Certificate will be issued.

​When selling or transferring ownership of your vehicle to a third party, an Application to Transfer Registration is also required. You may find it on VicRoads' website or by clicking here.
