When you buy a brand new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of any parts failures. This warranty is only valid as long as you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, according to the vehicle’s logbook.
Edney’s Leongatha’s expert mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol Vehicles
- Diesel Vehicles
RWC And Vehicle Inspections
If you’re buying, selling, or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you have to obtain a Roadworthy Certificate. The RWC, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection, ensures your vehicle meets the safety standards to be legally driven on Victorian roads.
When you’re thinking about buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection, so you can know exactly what you’re buying, and avoid any nasty surprises.
If you’re planning a long road trip, or camping trip, we would suggest you organise a pre-trip inspection. This way you can enjoy your trip with peace of mind, and ensure any issues with the vehicle are discovered in the workshop, rather than out on the road.
Here at Edney’s Leongatha, we can help you with:
- Roadworthy Certificates
- Pre-purchase Inspections
- Pre-trip Inspections
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems, like airbags, can only reduce the severity of an accident – whereas your brakes can also act preventatively. The condition of your brakes can often mean the difference between an accident and an emergency stop, and they endure an incredible amount of wear in day to day driving. For this reason, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should get your brakes checked at least once a year.
Edney’s Leongatha’s skilled technicians can help you with:
- Brake Component Replacement (pads, rotors, drums etc.)
- Brake Component Machining
- Brake Hose Repairs
- Brake Restorations
Steering and Suspension
Faults and flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing issues such as play in the steering wheel, body lean through corners, and vibrations at speed. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.
Here at Edney’s Leongatha, our expert mechanics can help you with:
- Wheel Alignments
- Wheel Balancing
- Bushing Replacement
- Power Steering Repairs/Replacement
While it’s easy to remember that your car needs petrol to run, a lot of people forget that the engine needs another sort of fuel just as much: oxygen. Your exhaust draws waste gases out of the engine bay, allowing fresh air in to continue to fuel the combustion process.
If you’re looking for a cost effective way to improve your vehicle’s performance, an exhaust upgrade can offer you the most bang for your buck.
Here at Edney’s Leongatha, our experienced staff can help you with:
- Exhaust Repairs and Replacement
- Exhaust Modifications and Upgrades
Your vehicle’s air conditioning actually degrades more from disuse than use, as the rubber tubing and seals, which make up the circulatory system of the aircon, dry up and crack, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your system of its cooling power.
Here at Edney’s Leongatha, our expert technicians can completely repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing any broken compressors or condensers, then swapping out any cracked tubing and seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.Contact Us
Clutches & Transmissions
As part of the assembly that transmits power from the engine to the wheels, your vehicle’s transmission is made up of some of the most complex and intricate machinery in your vehicle. Due it to its sophisticated nature, even minor faults and flaws can quickly escalate into costly repairs. Keep an eye out for lack of responsiveness when changing gears, grinding and clunking noises, leaking fluid, or a burning smell after driving, and if you notice any of these, you should have your transmission checked.
Edney’s Leongatha’s expert mechanics can help you with:
- Repairs & Replacement
- Manual Transmissions
- Automatic Transmissions
