Owning and running a car is indispensable for many Australians. The family car is often the primary mode of transport for work and family commitments and is particularly important for people who live in remote or regional areas. Running a car can be costly when you add up the cost of petrol, repairs and servicing. But should you perform repairs yourself or pay for the services of a motor mechanic?
The purchase of a new vehicle is a major expense, so we want to keep our car in good condition for as long as possible. New cars are covered for some items by the vehicle manufacturer’s warranty, and we receive a booklet detailing major services required as part of the warranty conditions. Are we obliged to return the vehicle to the dealer from which we purchased it for these services?
Value for money and the quality of services and repairs is a common concern when engaging the services of a motor mechanic. If you don’t know much about what goes on under your car’s bonnet, you probably dread your car needing a service or repair. It can be hard to know even after you pay the bill, whether you have received a competitively priced car service.
Negotiating auto repairs or a car service can be a daunting experience for those with little understanding of what is involved. There are a number of ways, however, to become better informed about your car and its servicing requirements. Having this knowledge will help you understand the work your mechanic is recommending and ensure you get good value for money from your car repairs.
Getting to know your car and performing minor car-care tasks between services is a great way to ensure your vehicle runs at optimum performance and may serve to prevent major repairs due to general wear-and-tear. It can also be fun as well as useful to learn as much as possible about the way your car works.
