Log Book service


What is a Log Book Service?

When you purchase your new car , it comes with a manufacturers Log book. The Log book is a guide for your vehicle's recommended service intervals. It's a guide for exactly what should be serviced, and when, according to the manufacturer of your vehicle.


Why do I need a Log book Service ?

By following the Log Book guidelines vehicle will be maintained in the safest, most reliable state. It also means your remains in its  peak performance state - extending the life of your car and helping to avoid any nasty, unexpected breakdowns or repairs.

By following your car's log book schedule you will maintain a higher resale value, in case you ever decide to sell your car.  Your log book becomes peace of mind for the buyer, because it shows the full car service and repair history. Purchasers will be happier to buy your car - and pay more knowing that it has been fully maintained to the manufacturers standards and that the car they are about to buy is safe and in the best working condition.


Don't I have to only go to the original Dealer where I bought my new car in order to get a Log book Service or to maintain my New Car Warranty ?

No.  New car dealers do not have the right to void your statutory new car warranty just because you had services or repairs done at a service centre different to the dealership that you bought it from. You legally have the right to visit any mechanic or car service centre of your choice to get your Log book service. You should however, make sure that the selected car service centre employs fully qualified mechanics and technicians, and that the services they perform meet manufacturer's specifications and quality parts are used.
