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 it periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Pakenham Automatics mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for all:
- Diesel vehicles
- Petrol vehicles
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. Unlike other safety systems, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.
Here at Pakenham Automatics we can help you with:
- Component Replacement (pads, rotors and drums)
Steering & Suspension
Faults and flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will increase your stopping distance.
Pakenham Automatics expert technicians can provide the following steering and suspension services:
- Bushing Replacement
- Power Steering Repairs and Replacement
- Shock Absorbers, Springs and Struts
Radiators & Cooling Systems
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it causes multiple problems, from reduced engine output and fuel efficiency, to decreased engine lifespan as leaking coolant 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 that of buying a second-hand car.
Here at Pakenham Automatics, our skilled mechanics can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
Diagnostics & Auto Electrical
With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, more and more functionality is being governed by the on-board auto electrical network.

Pakenham Automatics expert auto electricians can provide the following services:
- Alternators and starter motors
