Car Servicing

At Auto Repair Centre Newcastle we treat every vehicle as if it were our own, so it goes without saying that we don’t want you to encounter any problems or breakdowns, especially ones which could have been avoided.

That’s why we recommend you bring your vehicle to us for regular servicing to help eliminate problems before they begin. We offer a range of car servicing packages to suit your individual needs or we can carry out a service as per the manufacturer’s specified intervals – whichever you prefer.
