What is Log Book Service


Log Book Servicing is a proactive approach to car maintenance where regular inspections and small fixes keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently to prevent small problems turning into major damage and issues which could otherwise be very costly to repair.

Log Book Service 

Motive Mechanical can provide dealership quality service without the hefty price tag 

Every passenger car (and most commercials vehicles) should be issued with a “Log Book” by the manufacturer, which lays out the specified timing and agenda for your regular log book services, generally every 10,000km or 6 months.

You will know when you need to have your car serviced based on this Service schedule by checking your log book. In some vehicles the service indicator light will come on in the vehicle. You should keep your log book in your glove box for reference and recording any details, but Motive Mechanical can also refer to our database to get the required information if you’ve misplaced your book.

We can perform log book servicing on every vehicle, including vehicles that are still under warranty from the dealer. We use Ryco oil filters which come with a warranty guarantee and we only use Penrite oil specifically suited to the vehicle. 

The schedule of the service will be a combination of both Time OR Distance.

You may be tempted to delay your next log book service because your car is probably still driveable and it may not have reached BOTH the time and distance measures. While you obviously need to find availability in your budget and schedule, don’t delay too long because wear and tear on the car will increase exponentially and could lead to damage which is many times more expensive than the log book service would have been.


What’s included?

Every car is different and the agenda for each service changes according to the schedule, which is why each vehicle is issued with a log book.
