MAINTAIN YOUR STATUTORY WARRANTY

Something your dealer probably didn’t mention about your new car is that you don’t need to have your new car serviced by your dealer to maintain the manufacturer’s warranty.

Here are the facts about your new car’s manufacturer’s warranty:

  • Bayside automotive service will not void your manufacturer’s warranty.
  • Bayside automotive servicing strictly follows all the procedures recommended by the vehicle’s manufacturer.
  • Bayside automotive service only uses parts that are original equipment quality or superior.
  • It’s YOUR car and you DO have a choice as to who services it.
  • Once the service is completed by our qualified technicians, we will stamp your vehicle’s log book as a record of regular maintenance – critically important when it comes to achieving a higher resale price for your car in the future.

Roadworthy and safety certificates

We are fully accredited, certified, qualified and ready to give your vehicle a complete inspection to ensure your registration, buying or selling process is easier

Vehicles requiring a safety certificate are:

  • cars
  • motorcycles
  • trailers (including caravans) with an aggregate trailer mass (ATM) over 750kg-3,500kg
  • any other vehicles up to 4,500kg gross vehicle mass (GVM).

This inspection covers the basics for the safe operation of the vehicle, such as:

  • tyres
  • brakes
  • steering
  • suspension
  • body rust or damage
  • windscreen
  • lights.

Brake Fluid Change

A vital part of car maintenance is to change your brake fluid to ensure safety of brake components.
