What is log book service

Log Book Servicing is a proactive approach to car maintenance where regular inspections and small fixes keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently to prevent small problems turning into major damage and issues which could otherwise be very costly to repair.

Every passenger car (and most commercials vehicles) should be issued with a “Log Book” by the manufacturer, which lays out the specified timing and agenda for your regular log book services. You should keep your log book in your glove box for reference and recording any details, but Underwood Car Care can also refer to our database to get the required information if you've misplaced your book.

The schedule of the service will be a combination of both time or distance.

You may be tempted to delay your next log book service because your car is probably still driveable and it may not have reached BOTH the time and distance measures. While you obviously need to find availability in your budget and schedule, don't delay too long because wear and tear on the car will increase exponentially and could lead to damage which is many times more expensive than the log book service would have been.

What's included?

Every car is different and the agenda for each service changes according to the schedule, which is why each vehicle is issued with a log book.

Here are some examples of what can be included;

  • Change Oil
  • Check Coolant
  • Check Car Battery
  • Check Transmission Fluid
  • Check Brake Fluid
  • Check the Condition of the Air Filter
  • Check Power Steering Fluid
  • Check Spark Plugs
  • Check Turn Signals
  • Check Brake Lights
  • Check Heating System
  • Brake Check
  • Belt Check
  • Hose Check
  • Tyre Rotation
  • Coolant Sensor Check
