The Damage That A Lack Of Servicing Can Cause

You may think that having your vehicle regularly serviced is not essential however the following situation that one of our customers found themselves in may cause you to reconsider!

The customer came to us earlier in the year wanting a service on his Hyundai Getz – it had done 51,000 kms & its last service was 30,000 kms ago.  While carrying out the service we found that it had low compression due to the rings on the pistons being full of carbon deposits as highlighted in the picture below.

The piston rings are full of carbon deposits which caused low engine compression

This damage was a direct result of the vehicle not having had an oil change in 30,000 kms.  As a result, the engine had to be fully dismantled, cleaned and rectified costing the customer in excess of $4,000.00.  Had more regular servicing been carried out on the vehicle this damage would not have occurred and the customer would only have been up for the cost of a service – a much less costly exercise!

Has it been a while since your last service?  Even though you might not have experienced any repercussions yet it is most often the case that damage is already being done to your vehicle’s essential components.  Don’t keep putting it off until it’s too late!  To arrange an inspection of your vehicle today simply fill in the booking request form below.

Here is a testimonial from a happy Mercedes Benz owner.

We used our years of experience and in this case we also used the latest in Automotive Diagnostic Equipment for European vehicles

This is why Auto Stop is Brisbane’s One Stop Automotive Service and Repair Shop!

“I sent my Mercedes E240 to you guys about a month ago to have an electrical fault in the transmission looked at.Mercedes Benz E 240 serviced and repaired by Auto Stop Salisbury Brisbane

Your service was professional, speedy and no less than exceptional! I am no sure how much a dealer would have charged me, but I am assuming that you were also very competitive 🙂

Then, I received a letter in the mail thanking me for my custom. Very impressed…

I have worked in Marketing for 6 years and although I have sent out direct mail campaigns similar to this, it is the first time I have been directly targeted in such a personal way.

Thanks again for fixin’ my Benz… Whilst ever I am in Brisbane, you definitely have my support!”
