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 if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp the servicing in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Axis Autos we use only Genuine or OEM Quality (Original Engine Manufacturers) parts and Penrite Lubricants, and are fully certified to provide logbook services for all manufacturers of:
- Petrol passenger vehicles
- Diesel passenger vehicles
- 4WD & commercial vehicles
- Electric/hybrid passenger vehicles
To book your next logbook service with us and keep your new vehicle warranty, get in touch today!
If you’re considering purchasing a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend organising a pre-purchase inspection before you make your decision. A pre-purchase inspection is a thorough examination of the vehicle, ensuring that you know exactly what you’re buying and that you get no nasty surprises after buying. We can also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs to factor into your purchase decision.
If you are selling a vehicle, you can make it more attractive to potential buyers by having an inspection and providing them a copy of the report. If your new car warranty is nearing the end of its coverage period, you can have an inspection to identity any potential warranty items to be addressed free of charge by the dealer. You can even have the inspection just for peace of mind that your vehicle is ok or find out if there are any repairs it might need.

Your brakes are paramount to the safety of yourself, your passengers, pedestrians and other drivers. While other safety systems reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes are purely preventative, and well-maintained brakes can often mean the difference between an emergency stop and an accident.
Due to the stop-start nature of urban driving, your brakes suffer an incredible amount of wear. After all, they routinely bring tonnes of metal to a complete stop from high speeds every day. For this reason we agree with brakes manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least annually.
Here at Axis Autos, we provide the following brake services:
- Disc and drum brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
- ABS repairs
If your brakes feel spongy or are making noise, talk to us today!
Steering & Suspension
Flaws in your 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 that your tyres exert on the road, so a faulty suspension will dramatically increase your stopping distance.
Axis Autos’ expert mechanics can help you with:
- Shock absorbers, struts and springs
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs or replacement
- Lift kits and other 4WD suspension upgrades

Driving without air conditioning can be virtually unbearable in the summer, especially if you’re stuck in traffic. Interestingly, the AC actually degrades more from disuse than from use, as the multitude of rubber tubing and seals which comprise a large portion of the aircon dry out and crack, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out, robbing your air conditioning of its cooling power.
Here at Axis Autos we can completely repair your air conditioning, starting by swapping out faulty condensers, compressors, evaporators and receiver driers, replacing cracked tubing, and finally re-gassing and de-odourising your system once we’re sure it’s airtight.
If your AC is playing up, contact us today!
Car upholstery loves to absorb odours. Cigarette smoke, food, drink, sickness, urine, mould, pet odour, sweat, the list goes on. From the floor carpet, the seats and the roof lining, odours can be made particularly unbearable after your car has been baking in the hot summer sun. While the science behind the process is rather long-winded, simply put our industrial hospital grade Ozone Generator can help rid the nasty smells from your vehicle using an oxidation process with ozone (O3). We recommend cleaning and vacuuming the interior as well as replacing the air con cabin/pollen filter prior to treatment for optimum results.
If your car is a little on the nose, contact us today!
Clutch, Transmission, Differential & Transaxle
The clutch and transmission are made up of some of the most intricate pieces of machinery in your vehicle. Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain’s complexity means that any small faults can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
If you hear a clicking noise at full turn, are having trouble changing gears or hear a clunking noise when you do or notice a burning smell from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.
Axis Autos can provide:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic and manual gearbox repairs and servicing

Radiators & Cooling Systems
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it will cause myriad problems, from decreased power and fuel efficiency to reduced engine lifespan as leaking coolant destroys the head gasket and expansion caused by overheating damages the cylinders and pistons. If left unattended for long enough, cooling system flaws will render your vehicle undriveable, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a second-hand car.
Here at Axis Autos, we can provide the following cooling system repairs:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs and replacement
- Head gasket replacement and cylinder head overhaul
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
- Water pump replacement
- Cooling fan repair and replacement (mechanical, electrical & viscous)
If your vehicle is overheating, get in touch today!
Diagnostics & Auto Electrical
With the increasing complexity of modern vehicles, more and more functionality is being managed by the network of on-board computers. From playing music and monitoring fuel consumption to assisting with braking and transmission, even placing your vehicle into limp mode if a serious fault is detected to prevent lasting damage, your auto electrical systems are vital to ideal operation of your vehicle.
Axis Autos’ skilled technicians can help you with:
- Diagnostics – ‘check engine’ or other warning lights can be read with our scan tool
- Battery test and replacement: large range of RAC batteries including car, 4WD and marine
- Alternators and starter motors
- Lighting upgrades
- Component test and replacement
- Key, remote & transponder programming
- Central locking & power window repairs
If your check engine light is staring up at you from the dashboard, contact us today!
Tyres & Wheels
Tyre manufacturers design their products with built in redundancies, which allow the tyres to continue to provide acceptable grip even as they wear. These designs are rendered useless however, if your wheels are misaligned, as the tyres wear unevenly in patterns the designers could not account for. To ensure your tyres are lasting as long as possible and providing acceptable traction, make sure your wheels are aligned.
Here at Axis Autos we provide:
- Wheel balancing and tyre fitting
- Puncture repairs
- Tyres from major brands for all makes and model of car and 4WD
If your tyres are looking bald, talk to us today!
