Services

Please note that we are a mobile mechanic and we can bring many of these services to you. Give us a call to organise a visit from our mobile mechanics!

Logbook Service

New vehicles tend to come with a manufacturer's warranty that will cover the cost of a lot of mechanical failures, potentially saving you a lot of money. However, to keep your warranty valid, regular services must be administered by a registered mechanic who then stamps and signs off the vehicle's logbook. Logbook services are also useful even if your vehicle is out of warranty, as a well-maintained logbook increases the resale value of vehicles. They can also reduce your overall repair costs, as they can catch small problems and fix them before they develop into something more serious.

At Ross Davidson Automotive we can provide logbook services for all light vehicles. Contact us to organise your logbook service today!

Vehicle Inspections

Even though sellers are legally required to acquire a roadworthy certificate before they attempt to sell a vehicle, a pre-purchase inspection is generally a good idea as a roadworthy does not garantuee that a vehicle is without problems, just that it meets the bare legal requirements for safe driving.

Registration checks can also be helpful when you're thinking about buying, as they give you a lot more information about the history of the vehicle. Whether your seller is not being as open as they should, or if they are just unaware of the vehicle's full history, a registration check will allow you to find out if the vehicle has been written off, or reported as stolen, and whether the registration is still valid or has expired.

Here at Ross Davidson Automotives we can perform both pre-purchase inspections and registration checks for you. Get in touch today to organise an inspection!

Steering and Suspension

Your suspension and steering aren't just important for comfort, they are actually vital for your safety on the road. Poor suspension can substansially increase your stopping distance, which can be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop. As for steering, play in your steering wheel directly reduces your control of the vehicle, so it is critical that if you encounter any problems with your steering or suspension, you get them checked quickly.

At Ross Davidson Automotive our mechanics can fix:

  • Springs and shock absorbers
  • Bushing replacement
  • Power steering
  • And much more

Talk to us today if your steering or suspension is playing up.

Clutch and Transmission

If you notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet, or hear that horrible grinding sound when you change gears, you could have a problem with your transmission. Ignoring problems in your transmission can develop into extremely costly repairs, so if you have noticed a problem with your transmission, you should get your vehicle checked quickly.

Here at Ross Davidson Automotive we can help you with:

  • Automatic and manual transmissions
  • Clutches
  • Slip differentials

Contact us today to organise repairs for your transmission system.

Radiators and Cooling Systems

If your vehicle is overheating, you are losing fuel effiency quite drastically, and more importantly, causing permanent damage to your engine's gasket head, pistons and cylinders. This will result in a greatly diminished engine lifespan.

At Ross Davidson Automotive our trained mechanics can work on:

  • Coolant flush and check for leaks
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Heater unit repair or replacement
  • Radiator repair or replacement
  • Thermostat repair or replacement

Get in touch if your vehicle is overheating today!

Diagnostics and Auto Electrical

Whether it's just a mysterious warning light blinking on your dashboard, or your car isn't starting, at Ross Davidson Automotive we are equipped with the latest diagnostic scan tools that we can plug into your vehicle's onboard computer to analyse the problem. Once we have discerned the problem, we can help you with the following automotive electrical problems:

  • Alternators
  • Starter motors
  • Battery testing and replacement
  • EFI fuel injection systems
  • Body electrics

Talk to us today to organise fixing any of your auto electrical problems.

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. Whilst airbags and other SRS help mitigate the damage of an accident, well maintained brakes will enable you to prevent it entirely. Please make sure that your brakes are well looked after, for the safety of yourself and your passengers.

Here at Ross Davidson Automotive we can help you with:

  • Brake machining
  • Brake line replacement
  • Hand brake repair or service
  • General brake service

Contact us today to get your brakes checked.

Tyres and Wheels

If your tyres are worn your vehicle loses a lot of grip on the road. Even if your suspension and steering are well maintained, poor traction means you will lose a lot of control while driving, especially in wet weather. Poor wheel alignment contributes greatly to tyre wear, in addition to negatively affecting your steering.

At Ross Davidson Automotive we are equipped to organise:

  • Wheel balancing and alignment
  • Major tyre brands for all makes and models

Get in touch today if you need new tyres.
