Logbook Servicing

When buying a new car, the warranty it comes with covers you against certain unexpected expenses early in the vehicle's life. To keep this warranty active, it's often required that the owner bring their vehicle to a reputed auto repair workshop for what's called a logbook service, which checks the vehicle for any warning signs of future trouble. Your car dealer might try to convince you that these must be done at the dealership, but you can in fact save yourself valuable time and money by bringing it to Thornbury Car Care instead!

We're able to provide logbook servicing for all makes and models of passenger car and light commercial van or ute, allowing you to maintain your vehicle's warranty.

Vehicle Inspections

Before you buy, sell, trade, or transfer ownership of your vehicle, you'll need to have it vetted by a VicRoads-approved vehicle tester, and issued a Roadworthy Certificate to deem it viable to use on the road. Thornbury Car Care can conduct roadworthy inspections on all passenger, light commercial and 4x4 vehicles.

We can also offer pre-purchase inspections of your next used car, for added peace of mind when buying used. Simply organise with your seller for an inspection at Thornbury Car Care to get a full report of any mechanical problems that may add to the price of the used car later.

Brake Services

Your vehicle's brakes are arguably its most important safety feature; bringing your vehicle to a stop when you need to is essential to safe driving. Without regular checks your brakes can deteriorate quickly, particularly given the stop-and-start nature of inner city driving.

At Thornbury Car Care we're able to repair and replace all components of your vehicle's brake systems, from worn brake pads and rotors to drums in larger vehicles. We can also machine new components in our workshop, custom tailored to fit your vehicle.

If your brakes aren't working as well as they should, give us a call today!

Steering & Suspension

A number of handling and ride comfort issues, such as 'play' in the steering wheel or body roll when going around corners, stems from worn or faulty steering and suspension parts.

Our team of experienced technicians can service your vehicle's steering and suspension, including the replacement of springs, shocks, bushings and other key suspension components, as well as wheel alignment and wheel balancing, maximising wheel contact with the road for improved handling and tyre life for all vehicles, even those with a very low centre of gravity. We can also repair power steering systems, and install or upgrade 4x4 lift kits.

Engine Services

At Thornbury Car Care we specialise in repairs, maintenance and optimisation of your vehicle's engine, to get the absolute most power and satisfaction from your vehicle.

In addition to engine reconditioning we can also conduct performance and diagnostic tuning, EFI management system tweaks and fault-finding, as well as carburettor overhauls and fuel injector cleaning. Finally, each engine service we perform comes with a complimentary steam-clean of your engine bay, to give your vehicle that showroom look under the bonnet.

Exhaust Repairs

Your vehicle's exhaust is responsible for pulling spent fumes out of the engine and allowing clean air to take its place. Without a properly working exhaust your engine will eventually suffer performance loss, excess fuel consumption, and the build up of corrosive deposits that can lead to expensive repairs.

We can repair and replace damaged exhaust systems, including new mufflers and headers, or advise on a brand new optimal extractor for your vehicle.

Air Conditioning

With Australia's unpredictable climate, being able to keep your vehicle cool when you need it is essential to driver comfort. Your air conditioning system's hosing can become brittle over extended times without use, leading to refrigerant leaks that sap your system's cooling power.

Bring your vehicle in to Thornbury Car Car for a comprehensive air conditioning servicing, including leak and crack checking, replacing damaged hosing and repairing conditioning units. Once we're satisfied your system is airtight, we'll re-gas it with the refrigerants it needs to keep you cool.

Clutch & Transmission

If you're experiencing strange noises or smells from under your vehicle, or you're having trouble shifting or staying in gear, there might be a serious mechanical problem developing in your vehicle's transmission or gearbox. If left to develop, it can affect your vehicle's performance at higher speeds, ruin your vehicle's ability to maintain consistent speed, or prevent your vehicle from going in reverse or even starting at all.

Our team of technicians can service your vehicle's entire drivetrain, from the clutch pedal to your manual or automatic transmission, giving you back control over your vehicle and improving vehicle performance.

If you need to get your vehicle back in gear, give us a call today!

Radiator & Cooling Systems

Keeping your vehicle's engine cool is essential to good vehicle health; an overheating engine can lead to all sorts of faults, from slipping performance and greater fuel consumption to a potential breakdown.

At Thornbury Car Care we can provide a comprehensive range of cooling system repairs, from replacing cracked or leaking cables and valves to swapping out faulty thermostats and repairing or replacing your vehicle's radiator and heater units, as well as a coolant flush to clean out any lingering blockages or clogs in your cooling system.

Auto-Electrical & Diagnostics

Modern vehicles are becoming more and more sophisticated, and reliant on a host of internal electronic systems to keep track of how your vehicle's performing. Any problem that affects your vehicle's electrical system can create issues with other areas of your car, from malfunctions in your car stereo to faults in your dashboard lights, anti-lock brakes, or airbag deployment.

Thornbury Car Care can provide a host of auto-electrical services, from replacing damaged or faulty batteries, starter motors and alternators to installing new lighting upgrades and other accessories. We can also conduct in-depth diagnostics of your vehicle's internal systems, allowing us to locate many issues that create difficult-to-diagnose problems.
