When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that will cover the cost of mechanical failures. This warranty is voided however if you do not have the vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, and record these servicings in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Doncaster East Car Repairs we can provide logbook services for all petrol, diesel, LPG and light commercial passenger vehicles.
To book your next logbook service, contact us today!
Before you sell or otherwise transfer ownership of a vehicle, or take a vehicle back onto the road after an extended period of disuse, you are first legally required to make sure the vehicle qualifies for a Roadworthy Certificate, which can only be issued by a licensed tester.
Before you buy a used vehicle, we would recommend taking it for a pre-purchase inspection, that way any hidden flaws can be found, and you can know exactly what you’re buying.
Our qualified and experienced team can perform Roadworthy and pre-purchase inspections, so if you need either, get in touch today!
Your brakes are the most important safety feature you have on your car. While other safety systems only mitigate the damage of an accident, well maintained brakes can be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop. Due to the stop-start nature of urban driving, you would be surprised at how much wear and tear your brakes endure, so we recommend having them checked frequently.
We offer comprehensive brake services, so whether you’re having issues like spongy brakes, or if you just haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, talk to us today!

Your steering and suspension are important to both ride comfort and control. Faults can cause play in the steering wheel, and body lean around corners, as well as increasing your stopping distance.
We at Doncaster East Car Repairs can help you with:
- Shock absorbers and coil springs
- Bushing replacements
- Tension bars
- Power steering repairs
- And much more

Clutch and Transmission
Responsible for transferring power from the engine to the wheels, the drivetrain is comprised of some of the most precise and intricate pieces of machinery in your car. Due to their complicated nature, faults in the drivetrain can quickly escalate into some of the most damaging and costly repairs. If you have trouble getting into gear, hear a clunking noise when you do, or notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.
We’re able to provide the following drivetrain services:
- Clutch repairs and services
- Automatic and manual transmission repairs and servicing
- Slip differential repairs and servicing

Driving without air conditioning in the summer months can be unbearable in Australia. Uniquely, your AC can degrade more from disuse than from use, as the air conditioning system is composed of a myriad of rubber tubing and seals which dry out and crack over time, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out, robbing your aircon of its cooling power.
Our air conditioning specialists can check for leaks and replace any cracked hoses or seals, swap out faulty compressors and TX valves, and then re-gas your aircon with refrigerant once we’re certain its airtight.
To keep your cool this summer, talk to us today!
Radiators and Cooling Systems
If your engine is running hot, not only will it increase your fuel consumption, it will also reduce your engine power and lifespan, as overheating causes damage to the cylinders, pistons and the gasket head.
At Doncaster East Car Repairs we can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs or replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Head gasket replacement
- Thermostat check and replacement
If your car is overheating or leaking coolant, contact us today!

Tyres and Wheels
Your tyres’ treads are responsible for maximising traction, especially in wet weather as the treads channel the water away from the tyres’ surface. As the treads wear down you will experience vastly reduced grip, increasing stopping distance and the chances of skidding during an emergency. Tyre manufacturers design their tyres to last a certain number of years, building redundancies into the pattern of the treads to allow for some wear. However, if your wheels are misaligned or the tyres aren’t fitted properly, then the treads will wear down in uneven patterns, reducing the efficacy of the manufacturer’s designs.
Here at Doncaster East Car Repairs we can provide the following tyre and wheel services:
- Major tyre brands for all makes and models
- Tyre fitting and balancing
- Wheel alignments
If your tyres are going bald, talk to us today!
