Logbook Servicing

Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is only valid however, if you have your vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.

Here at R & S Tyre and Auto, our expert mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:

  • Petrol vehicles
  • Diesel vehicles
  • Electric/hybrid vehicles

Roadworthy Certificates

If you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle, you are legally required to first obtain a roadworthy certificate, issued by a licensed tester after a thorough inspection. This inspection ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum safety standards to be driven legally on Victorian roads.

R & S Tyre and Auto is a fully licensed testing station, able to provide roadworthy inspections for all vehicles.

Steering & Suspension

Faults and flaws in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your steering is also responsible or maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.

Here at R & S Tyre and Auto, our expert technicians can help you with:

  • Wheel alignments
  • Shock absorbers, springs and struts
  • Wheel balancing

Air Conditioning

Nothing ruins a summer drive faster than faulty air conditioning. Your air conditioning actually degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing that comprises a large part of your AC dries up and cracks without use, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your aircon of its cooling power.

R & S Tyre and Auto can completely repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing faulty compressors and condensers, then swapping out any cracked tubing, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.

Cooling Systems

If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a multitude of problems, from reduced fuel efficiency and power output, to decrease engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they will render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car.

R & S Tyre and Auto can help you with:

  • Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
  • Head gasket replacement
  • Coolant flush and leak check
  • Thermostat check and replacement

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.

Here at R & S Tyre and Auto, our expert technicians can provide the following brake services:

  • Brake component replacement (pads, rotors and drums)
  • Brake machining
  • Brake hose repairs

As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network. This network handles everything from monitoring fuel consumption and playing music, to assisting with braking and gear changes.

  • Alternators and starter motors
  • Battery check and replacement
  • Component check and replacement
  • Diagnostics
