Logbook service

  • Increase vehicle resale value as it shows you look after your car.
  • It will also keep your new car warranty for newbies, for added peace of mind.
Basic servicing

At mycar we call these our Basic Services, but you might know it as a minor or fixed price service.

  • We'll report on anything needed to keep your car (Betty? Bruce? Cassandra?) in tip top shape, even if they are starting to show their age.

Power on with an Electric Car Service

EV Car Charger

A lot of people think that having an electric car means you will never have to schedule a service again, or at least not as regularly. While electric vehicles pack around 60% less moving parts than their combustion engine cousins, electric car parts do suffer wear and tear. Make sure you stay up-to-date with your electric car service schedule and ensure your plug and go car continues to pack an efficiency punch.

Drop in and speak to an expert electric car mechanic at your local mycar. Our trained team of automotive enthusiasts are ready to service your electric car Australia wide, no matter where you are, from the metropolitan corners of Sydney to the golden skies of Alice Springs.

How do we service your electric car?

Moving electric car parts require the most attention due to wear and tear. Major servicing areas can include (but certainly isn’t limited to):

  • Tyres rotated, checked, balanced, aligned and if worn replacements will be recommended
  • Inspect brakes, including pads and discs and top up brake fluid as required
  • Inspection of steering, suspension and chassis for damage
  • Inspect for leaks or cabling disconnections or damage
  • Inspect drive shaft, power steering for wear or damage
  • Check and top up battery coolant fluid
  • Inspection of air-conditioning, heating and replace internal air filters as required
  • Check internal and external lighting
  • Lubricate body components such as door locks, handles, windows and mirrors
  • Inspect pedal function
  • Check airbag system

And let’s not forget consumables like windscreen wipers, windscreen fluids plus internal and external lighting. Many electric vehicles now also come with internal air filtration systems and require the air filters to be changed every one to two years (depending on manufacturer specifications). While some electric car parts require less maintenance than others, all of the above are vital to extending the life of your electric vehicle - an electric car service will save you money in the long run.

How often do you have to service an electric car?

How often your electric car will need a service comes down to the make and model of the vehicle, the manufacturer's logbook, terms and conditions of warranty, the mechanic or service dealership requirements, and how you use and care for your car, especially when it comes to charging the battery. Curious about your make and model? We’ve summarised the car servicing periods for every electric car on the market to date here.
