How Much Is A Logbook Service?
Logbook services are essential to keep your car running smoothly and safely for an extended period, but it does pay to shop around for the best deal.
A basic new car service starts at $189, but the price will vary based on the manufacturer’s logbook servicing guidelines and a range of other factors. By understanding what is involved with logbook services and how to get the best deal, you can maintain your vehicle without voiding the warranty and save money at the same time.
What is a logbook service?
An annual logbook service follows the guidelines outlined by the manufacturer of the vehicle. Regular maintenance prevents future major problems and maintains your warranty by repairing minor issues as soon as they arise.
Logbooks are specific to the make and model of the car they come with and provide information about its critical maintenance requirements. You must complete these service requirements in the correct order during the car’s warranty.
In maintaining the efficiency of your car throughout its life, logbook service intervals are essential.
What factors determine the price of your car service?
It’s a good idea to ask a few mechanics for estimates before booking any work, as different factors influence the cost of car service. Generally, the make and model of your car, the mechanic, and the type of service impact your bill. Here are the reasons why:
The make and model of the car: Depending on the age, quality, and availability of parts, each car is manufactured differently and may cost more to service. In addition, manufacturers and vehicle models recommend different service intervals for logbooks. While some manufacturers recommend service intervals of six months for specific cars, others only require 12-month servicing.
Types of services and timing: Indicative pricing is a great way to offer a general idea of a service’s price, but major services can exceed your budget. Typically, major services are scheduled according to your car’s mileage and age. As your car gets older, it becomes more expensive to maintain because more wear and tear and parts need replacing.
The mechanic you choose: Mechanics charge different hourly labour rates, and the total amount you pay may also vary depending on whether you use a private mechanic or dealership.
