When you purchase a new car log book servicing will be a requirement.
The log book contains all the service requirements particular to your vehicle. With all the specifications set down by the vehicle manufacturer.
According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in order for a car’s warranty to remain intact, motor vehicle dealers are allowed to insist that servicing on vehicles sold by them is undertaken by qualified mechanics. The service must be completed in accordance with manufacturers’ specifications. These specifications are outlined in your car’s service log book.
The service log book specific to your vehicle provides clear guidance for your mechanic as to exactly what needs attention at each service and what interval is recommended between servicing. A logbook service is comprehensive and ensures the car is examined to the standards that the manufacturer has recommended.
Many purchasers of new cars believe they must have the vehicle serviced at that manufactures dealership to comply with warranty conditions. This is not true.
