Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that will cover the cost of parts failures. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Volksrepair’s mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
Your brakes are paramount to the safety of your passengers, yourself, and drivers you share the road with. While other safety features like airbags reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes can often be the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes suffer from a surprising amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of metal to a complete stop, several times a day! That’s why we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
Here at Volksrepair, our skilled technicians can help you with:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering and Suspension
Faults and flaws in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners.

Volksrepair’s talented mechanics can provide the following steering and suspension services:
- Wheel alignments
- Shock absorbers, springs or struts
- Wheel balancing
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs and replacement
Clutch and Transmission
As part of the assemblage that transfers the power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are comprised of some of the most intricate and precise machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
Here at Volksrepair, our expert technicians can help you with:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic and manual transmission servicing and repairs
