A logbook or scheduled service is when your vehicle is serviced at the nominated interval in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
Your vehicle does not have to be serviced by a dealer during the new car warranty period; the ACCC has confirmed that independent repairers like Midas may sign or stamp your service logbook without affecting your statutory warranty providing the repairer is qualified, follows the manufacturer’s requirements and uses products that meet the original specification. For more information regarding consumer rights and servicing vehicles under warranty, please read this information booklet from the Australia Automotive Aftermarket Association.
Do I need a logbook service or a basic service?
A logbook service differs from a basic car service as it follows the specific guidelines outlined in the logbook. This is especially important if your vehicle is still covered under warranty, as a logbook service follows the manufacturer’s procedures and validates the warranty. If your car is no longer under warranty, then a basic service may be ideal for you.
Our logbook service includes all parts, oils and scheduled service items, including a Midas safety check and vehicle inspection report. Not only are they great value for money, but you also have the added convenience of maintaining your vehicle at your local Midas shop.
Logbook service key items:
- Check registration
- Change engine oil and filter
- Check or replace all scheduled service items
- Check under the bonnet
- Check under the car
- Check tyres & lights
- Midas inspection and safety check
- Road test up to 60km/hr & report

* Conditions apply. Ask your Midas Service Centre for details or recommendations to maintain your statutory new car warranty

Do I need a logbook service or a basic car service?
This depends entirely on your vehicle. A logbook service is ideal if your car is still covered under warranty, as it follows the manufacturer’s guidelines to a tee, ensuring your warranty is valid. If, however, your car is no longer under warranty, a basic service takes into consideration the entire condition of your vehicle and may include repairs if necessary.
How often should I get a full service for my car?
For new vehicles, we recommend a logbook service every six months or 10,000, whichever comes first. Older vehicles, and those regularly driven on rough terrain should be serviced more frequently: we recommend every three months, or 5,000km.
What do I do in case of a problem/if an issue persists?
A regular logbook service can help detect any abnormalities with your vehicle’s performance before it becomes worse. If the issue persists, get in touch with the expert car mechanics at Midas, who can perform a full inspection and recommend the best course of action.
