What is Log Book Servicing?
Log Book Servicing is a proactive approach to car maintenance where regular inspections and small fixes keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently and prevent small problems turning into major damage and problems which could be very costly to repair.
Every passenger car (and most commercials vehicles) is issued with a “Log Book” by the manufacturer which lays out the specified timing and agenda for your regular log book services. You should keep your log book in your glove box for reference and recording any details but we can also refer to our database to get the required information if you’ve misplaced your book.
The schedule of the service will be a combination of both Time OR Distance.
You may be tempted to delay your next log book service because your car is probably still driveable and it may not have reached BOTH the time and distance measures. While you obviously need to find availability in your budget and schedule, don’t delay too long because wear and tear on the car will increase exponentially and could lead to damage which is many times more expensive than the log book service would have been.
Every car is different and the agenda for each service changes according to the schedule which is why each vehicle is issued with a log book. Here are some examples of what can be included;
Check Car Battery
Check Transmission Fluid
Check Brake Fluid
Check the Condition of the Air Filter
Check Power Steering Fluid
Check Spark Plugs
