Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of mechanical parts failure. This warranty is voided however if you do not have your vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who will record and stamp these servicings in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Maddington Central Automotive Care we can provide logbook services for all:
- Petrol passenger vehicles
- Diesel passenger vehicles
- Hybrid/electric passenger vehicles
To book your next logbook service with us, get in touch today!
If you are getting your vehicle licensed or registered, you have modified your vehicle, or need to remove a compliance notice (yellow sticker), or if you are driving a commercial vehicle that requires an annual examination, then you legally need to book a vehicle examination with an Approved Inspection Station (AIS). The Vehicle Examination ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum safety requirements to be driven legally on the roads of WA.
When you are planning on buying a second-hand vehicle, we would recommend organising a pre-purchase inspection. A pre-purchase inspection is a thorough examination of the entire vehicle which ensures that you know exactly what you’re buying. Here at Maddington Central Automotive we also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs to factor into your buying decision.
Maddington Central Automotive Care is an AIS that can provide you with vehicle examinations, and we also happily provide pre-purchase inspections. If you need either, contact us today!
The brakes are paramount to the safety of yourself and your passengers. While other safety systems like SRS airbags reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes are purely preventative; well-maintained brakes are often the difference between an emergency stop and an accident.
Due to the stop-start nature of urban driving, your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear. For this reason we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
Maddington Central Automotive Care’s skilled mechanics can provide the following brake services:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repair or replacement
- Brake restorations
If you haven’t had your brakes checked in a while, talk to us today!
Steering & Suspension
Defects in the steering and suspension drastically affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean around corners, respectively. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road surface, a poor suspension will substantially reduce your power whilst increasing your stopping distance.
Here at Maddington Central Automotive Care we can help you with:
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs
- Lift kits and other 4WD upgrades

Driving in Australia during the summer can be virtually unbearable, especially if you’re stuck in traffic. Interestingly, your aircon degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber hoses and seals dry up and crack, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your AC of its cooling power.
Here at Maddington Central Automotive Care we can fully repair your air conditioning, starting by replacing any faulty condenser and compressors, then swapping cracked hosing, and finishing by de-odourising and re-gassing your system with refrigerant once we’re sure it’s airtight.
If your air conditioning isn’t working this summer, don’t sweat it, talk to us today!
Clutch & Transmission
The machinery that transforms the linear power of your engine into rotational power for your wheels is incredibly intricate and precise. Referred to as the drivetrain, the complicated nature of the machinery means that any minor faults can quickly proliferate into some of the most costly repairs.
If you notice a clicking noise at full turn, a grinding noise when changing gear, or a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, then you may have a problem with your vehicle’s drivetrain.
Here at Maddington Central Automotive Care we can provide the following drivetrain repairs:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic and manual gearbox repairs and servicing
- CV joint repairs
- Differential repairs
If you’ve noticed any of the warning signs mentioned above, get in touch today!
Radiators & Cooling Systems
If your vehicle’s cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a myriad of problems, from reduced power and fuel efficiency if it’s minor, through to reduced engine lifespan. Leaking coolant damages the head gasket, and expansion caused by overheating damages the cylinders and pistons.
If cooling system issues are left long enough, they will render your vehicle undriveable, and the cost of repairs will be similar to that of buying a second-hand car!
Maddington Central Automotive Care’s skilled technicians can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs or replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
If your vehicle is overheating, contact us today!
Diagnostics & Auto Electrical
As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more systems are being governed by the network of on-board computers. From monitoring fuel consumption and playing music all the way through to helping with transmission changes, braking, and even pre-emptively putting your vehicle into limp mode if a serious fault is detected, to prevent any lasting damage.
Maddington Central Automotive Care can provide the following auto electrical services:
- Battery test and replacement
- Alternators and starter motors
- Lighting upgrades
- Accessory installation
- Solar battery systems

Tyres & Wheels
The treads on your tyre are responsible for providing you with traction, especially during wet weather, when they act as channels to divert water away from the contact patches. Tyre manufacturers design their tyres with built-in redundancies that account for wear, allowing your tyres to provide acceptable traction throughout their lifetime.
If your wheels are misaligned, these designs are rendered useless, as misaligned wheels cause uneven tyre wear, which the manufacturers couldn’t foresee or account for.
Here at Maddington Central Automotive Care we can help you with:
- Tyres from major brands for all makes and model of car, light truck and 4WD
- Wheel alignments
- Wheel balancing
If your tyres are looking a bit bald, get in touch today!
We offer a wide range of other services here at Maddington Central Automotive Care, including:
- Exhaust repairs and replacement
- Trailer repairs
