    Log Book Servicing


    Just like with any car, a 4wd requires regular servicing. This can include logbook servicing to keep your warranty valid according to manufacturers’ guidelines, or you can book a service every 15 000 km. These routine checks are crucial to keep your engine healthy, make sure that oil filters are clean, brake pads are working effectively and prevent fuel contamination and extensive, long-term damage. With the heavy driving a 4×4 is subjected to, a service is all the more important to help keep the vehicle in good condition for high performance and fuel economy. Failure to keep up regular servicing can result in enormous costs in the future, or even worse: irreparable damage.


    • Full road-safety check
    • Change of engine oil and oil filter
    • Tyre pressure checks
    • Top up of brake fluids, clutch fluids, radiator fluids and battery fluids
    • Power steering system checks
    • Inspection of gearbox, transmission, lights and wiper blades
    • Examination of air filters and fuel filters
    • Safety checks on seat belts
    • Suspension checks and minor adjustments

    These are the most vital checks that come with any basic 4wd service at Port Phillip Automotive in Rosebud. However, more extensive care treatments can be implemented if needed, depending on how your vehicle has been used. We also provide our customers with affordable 4×4 servicing near you.

    I was down the peninsula visiting family when my car wouldn’t start one evening. Chris from Port Phillip Automotive came and checked out the car within 20 minutes, found the problem quickly and the next day had fixed it for me. Fast, reliable and great service

    Have been through many different mechanics over the years. Chris and Port Phillip Automotive have been the best by far. An honest company that cares about their customers and always does a great job. Will definitely continue to use their services.

    My Nissan Patrol kept having engine check light come on and it would constantly go into limp mode. The car had logged several codes and Nissan told me that the car would cost approx $6000 to repair. I got a second opinion through Chris, and within 3-4 minutes he found my supposed $6000 issue, it turns it out was a loose fuel line and it was a simple fix with a $1 hose clamp. Very happy with the outcome!

    Chris has helped me with my car many times before, always quick to figure out any problems, honest and upfront with pricing and what it will take to get things fixed up. Always good to know you can call him and get any issues sorted out quickly and get back on the road.
    Thanks mate
