Car letting you know your service is now due? The service we perform meets or exceeds the manufacturer’s standards as specified in your log book, all at significantly lower cost than the dealers.
Time, Kilometre or condition based service items
Items like spark plugs, transmission services, and air filter replacement are all items that may be due at different services. As we perform our service, we note these items that are due and provide you with a quote. We would never just perform these jobs without your approval!
Warranty Interim service
If you have purchased a second hand vehicle that comes with an extended warranty plan, you often need to service your car a little more frequently than is recommended by the manufacturer. We can perform an interim service if necessary to keep your warranty valid, and costs down.
A brake warning light or message is usually an indication that your brakes are wearing low. Whether it be brake pads, brake discs or both, we use a range of genuine and high quality OEM parts to ensure the brakes we replace operate as perfectly as when your car was new.
Hearing a squeak while driving over speed humps, or a knock when reversing out your driveway? From complex hydraulic and air suspension systems to simple bush or ball joint replacements, we have the skill to correctly diagnose and repair any worn or failed suspension component.
German cars have become very complex, and while diagnostic equipment can help identify faults quickly, it still takes a skilled diagnostician to get it right. Luckily, Ammstar Autohaus have great skill in this area. We work systematically and with structure, solving problems is our forte!
