When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides with a warranty that covers the cost any repairs needed due to parts failure. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Romsey Auto Care, our mechanics are fully certified to provide you with logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you must first obtain a Roadworthy certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection. This certificate ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum legal safety standards to be driven on Victorian Roads.
When you’re thinking about buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. This inspection ensures you know exactly what you’re buying, and helps you avoid nasty surprises. Here at Romsey Auto Care we can also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for you to factor into your purchase decision.
Romsey Auto Care can help you with both Roadworthy and pre-purchase inspections.
Steering & Suspension
Flaws in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Nothing ruins a summer drive faster than broken air conditioning, especially if you’re stuck in traffic. Your AC is unique in that it degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals which make up the interior of your aircon dry up and crack if not used, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your air conditioning of its cooling power. Romsey Auto Care can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing faulty compressors and condensers, then replacing any cracked tubing and seals, and finally regassing your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.
Clutch & Transmission
As part of the machinery that transfers the power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are made up of some of the most complex and sophisticated machinery in your vehicle. Due to their intricate nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into extremely costly repairs.

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in how much grip you exert on the road surface, especially during wet weather, where the treads of the tyre act as channels to divert the water away from where the contact patches meet the ground.
