Logbook Services

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle logbook.

Here at Southeast Motor Company, our mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for all makes and model of:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles
  • LPG vehicles

Steering & Suspension

Flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension drastically affect both handling and ride comfort. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a faulty suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Here at Southeast Motor Company, our skilled technicians can help you with:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering repairs and replacement
  • Lift kits and 4WD upgrades

Clutch & Transmission

As part of the assemblage that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are comprised of extremely complex and intricate machinery. Due to their sophisticated nature, even minor flaws in the clutch and transmission can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.

Southeast Motor Company’s expert mechanics can provide:

  • Clutch repairs
  • Automatic and manual gearbox repairs and servicing

Air Conditioning

Nothing ruins a summer drive faster than faulty air conditioning. Your air conditioning is unique amongst your vehicle’s various systems in that it degrades more from disuse than from use, as the multitude of rubber tubing and seals dries out and crack, leaking the refrigerant gas and robbing your aircon of its cooling power.

Here at Southeast Motor Company, our expert technicians can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing broken compressors and condensers, then swapping out cracked tubing, and finally regassing your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a lot of different problems, from reduced fuel efficiency and power output, to decreased engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will eventually render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a secondhand car.

Southeast Motor Company’s skilled mechanics can help you with:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety system your vehicle has. While other safety features reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.

Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of metal to a complete stop, multiple times a day!

Southeast Motor Company’s expert brake technicians can provide:

  • Brake component replacement
  • Brake component machining
  • Brake hose repairs
  • Brake restorations

Diagnostics

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network. This network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption, to assisting with braking and gear changing, even monitoring your engine bay and putting your vehicle into limp mode if a serious flaw is detected, to prevent lasting damage.

Here at Southeast Motor Company, our skilled technicians are equipped with state of the art diagnostics tools that they plug into your onboard network, and then generate and analyse a detailed report, helping our customers with those problem cars with the hard to find issues.

Tyres

The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in the grip that your tyres exert on the road, 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 road surface. Your tyres are a lot more complex than they first appear, and picking the optimal set can seem daunting.

Here at Southeast Motor Company, we will happily advise you on your next tyre purchase, and stock tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:

  • Car
  • 4WD
