When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failures. This warranty is only valid, however if the vehicle is regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Central Mechanics & Suspension, our skilled mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Hybrid vehicles
When you’re thinking about buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection, to ensure you know exactly what you’re buying and know exactly what you’re buying.
If you’re planning a long road trip, or a camping trip, we would strongly urge you to bring your vehicle in for a pre-trip inspection, so that you discover any issues with your vehicle in a mechanics workshop, rather than out in the middle of nowhere.Contact us today!
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While airbags and other safety systems can only mitigate 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 a near-miss. Your brakes suffer an astonishing amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne to a complete stop, multiple times a day. For this reason, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
Here at Central Mechanics and Suspension, our skilled technicians can help you with:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering & Suspension
Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, with effects ranging from overly loose or stiff feeling steering wheels, body lean through corners, and much more. 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.
Central Mechanics and Suspension can provide the following services:
- Wheel alignment
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs and replacement
Your air conditioning is unique in that it degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals that comprise the majority of the aircon dry up and crack with disuse, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob the AC of its cooling power.
Here at Central Mechanics and Suspension we can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing any faulty compressors and condensers, then swapping out cracked tubing and seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.Contact us today!
Clutch & Transmission
As part of the assemblage that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the transmission is comprised of some of the most intricate and complex machinery in your vehicle. Due to its sophisticated nature, even minor problems can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
If you hear a grinding noise when changing gears, have trouble changing gears, or notice a burning smell coming from the engine compartment after a drive, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s transmission.
Central Mechanics and Suspension’s expert mechanics can help you with:
- Automatic transmissions
- Manual transmissions
- Repairs and replacement
- CV Joints
Your engine is the heart of your vehicle. If your engine isn’t working, you don’t have a vehicle, you have an expensive and heavy lawn ornament.

- Engine rebuilds

- Engine testing
- Engine blocks

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a multitude of problems, from reduced power output, fuel efficiency, and even engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine block. If your cooling system is malfunctioning and it is left untreated for long enough, it will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car!
Here at Central Mechanics and Suspension, our master mechanics can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
