Logbook Servicing

If you have purchased a brand new 4×4, you would have been given a new vehicle warranty book by the dealership. This is also known in the industry as a manufacturer’s warranty and contains information on the specified or recommended service requirements of the vehicle.

However, for your warranty to remain valid for the specified period and not be cancelled by the manufacturer, your 4×4 must be serviced in accordance with the logbook. Generally, this service must be completed by an accredited and qualified mechanic, however you do not need to have this service completed by the dealership for the warranty to remain valid.

Completing a logbook service when required, helps to preserve your vehicle’s re-sale value, avoid costly replacements on failed components and extend the life of your 4×4.

To book your 4×4 in at our modern workshop in Bundoora for logbook servicing, please give us a call today!

Steering and Suspension

Off-road driving in your 4×4 is a fun way to spend the weekend with friends or family and the vehicle’s steering and suspension system ensures that no matter how bumpy or challenging the road ahead of you is, you will be able to tackle it in relative comfort and full confidence.

However, just like all mechanical systems that rely on suspension systems, you must have it regularly checked by a qualified mechanic. Doing so will ensure that your 4×4 stays on the road when you want it to and that your ride will be comfortable for both yourself and your passengers.

Air Conditioning

Off-road adventuring on dusty 4×4 trails is a fun and enjoyable way to spend the weekend with your friends or family. However, with that much dust blowing about, it’s often not long before it starts to get into your vehicle. A common problem that often sees dust working its way into the complex automotive components of the 4×4 vehicle.

The air conditioning system is often the first major area that begins to suffer and this is due to the accumulation of dust that builds up after not being correctly cleaned out directly after an off-road trip.

Here at 4×4 Solutions, our team of mechanics can assist with 4×4 air conditioning inspections, repairs and if needed replacement of complex parts. This will ensure that on your next big 4×4 adventure, the air conditioning system will work as it was originally designed to do.

Clutch, Transmissions and Diffs

The 4×4 vehicle’s clutch and transmission system is a highly tuned and technologically advanced automotive system and has been built for the purpose of transferring power from your engine and directing it downwards to the wheels.

However, due to the fact that most 4×4 vehicles which are sold in Australia are driven around on inner-city streets, transmission wind-up is a common issue which affects numerous 4×4 owners.

Transmission wind-up occurs when a 4×4 is driven on asphalt and cement roads, instead of off-road where the roads are more commonly grass, dirt and mud based.

At 4×4 Solutions, our team of 4×4 mechanical experts can help with transmission inspections, repairs and part replacements. This will ensure that on your next big off-road adventure or even just popping down to the local shops, you won’t experience any steering or related vehicle performance issues.

Muddy and dusty roads, sandy off-road trails and hot weather days, all put a large amount of strain on your 4×4’s engine. This is commonly known by 4×4 owners, as the harder your engine works so too does the radiator and cooling system.

Tyres and Wheels

For best performance when out on city roads or off-roading on an exciting dusty trail, it is highly important that your 4×4 be fitted with the correct pair of tyres.

Doing so will ensure that you do not run into any problems which could result in costly repairs or even worse, leave you and your loved one’s standard by the side of the road.

Unlike modern passenger vehicle tyres, the tyres that are fitted to your 4×4 are specially designed to maximise grip and this is done through applying deeper tread to the surface of the tyre and larger gaps. This means when encountering typical off-road surfaces such as wet grass or mud, your vehicle won’t become stuck or bogged down.

At 4×4 Solutions, we can assist customers with choosing the best tyres for their 4×4 vehicle and we do this through in-depth consultations. This ensures that the tyres fitted to a vehicle are correctly matched to the off-road conditions which it will be driving on.

When driving a 4×4 on city roads or on an exciting off-road trail, the windscreen at the front of your vehicle is tasked with keeping you safe from the outside elements and is constructed from hardened and laminated automotive glass. Often performing under the most extreme of conditions.

However, as anyone who has driven off-road before will know quite well, small rocks, pebbles and other road materials are often flicked up as you drive by. Should this happen to your vehicle, the windscreen is usually the first place to be affected and if not repaired in a timely manner, could become a serious safety hazard when on the road.

Here at 4×4 Solutions, our skilled team can assist with windscreen inspections, repairs and if needed complete windscreen replacement. For more information please get in touch with our team today!
