Car Repair

It’s hot and humid, a typical day in the Red Centre. The last place you want to be is stuck on the side of the road, with the car bonnet up. A regular car service will help protect you and your car from unexpected breakdowns. If your last service was more than six months or 10,000km ago, it’s time to come see us at mycar for your car service in Alice Springs.

Your car logbook or service manual will recommend timeline intervals to service your car. If your vehicle is older or prone to issues, it’s best to service it sooner rather than later, the general rule being every 5,000km for older vehicles. We’ll discuss your new car servicing costs or give you the fixed price upfront. We’ve also got you covered with flexible payment options including ZipPay.

Need fixed price car servicing? Alice Springs mycar has you covered

Regular servicing is vital to help prevent larger, more complex (and expensive) issues from popping up. At mycar, when it comes to cost, there are no surprises thanks to the fixed price car servicing Alice Springs drivers depend on.

For an Essential Service with all the basics to keep you on the road (oil, oil filter and a comprehensive inspection), you’ll be driving away at a cost starting at $199.

Our Essential Plus Service covers the basics, plus extras including tyre rotation and wheel balance, and complimentary roadside assistance for 12 months.

Keeping up-to-date with logbook servicing

Logbook servicing is when our mechanics pop the hood, run diagnostics and conduct oil changes and while also attending to other requirements set out by your car’s manufacturer. When we’re done, we log it in your car’s physical log book, which acts as proof of your vehicle’s scheduled service. When you book with the mycar team, let us know what service interval you have reached and we can provide you with an upfront quote.
