Wheel Alignment

Adjusting your car's wheel alignment means that we will adjust a series of complex measurements and adjustments that make your car's steering, suspension and driving characteristics perform as they should.

When adjusted correctly, proper wheel alignment reduces tire wear, improves fuel economy and handling and makes driving more safe and enjoyable.    

Having your car's wheel alignment checked at least once a year is advisable.  Under normal wear and road conditions, even driving around town can take their toll on your car's steering and suspension system and adjustment.  This may lead to your car's alignment settings to become outside of the recommended set of specifications.

Some common symptoms of your car needing a wheel alignment are uneven tire wear, your car pulling to one side, wandering across lanes and an often your steering wheel becoming off-center.  We recommend that you follow a routine of alignment checks to help improve all of these aspects of your car's handling and suspension. 

Wheel Balancing

Adjusting your car's wheel balance means that we will adjust the distribution of weight around your tires and wheels.  When your tires are not balanced correctly, it can have a dramatic impact on both your car and your safety.

Correct wheel balance makes sure that the wheels do not have any heavy spots that would cause vibration and wear out your tires, struts, shocks or other steering and suspension parts.  When combined with proper wheel alignment, balanced wheels ensure smooth and enjoyable driving.     

The most common signs of unbalanced tires are vibration and noise problems.  When driving with an out-of-balance wheel, the wheel will bounce down the road rather than spinning smoothly.  This also can affect the speed, handling and fuel efficiency of your car.  As many new cars have light weight suspension and wheels, they tend to be more sensitive to imbalance than older cars.  


  • How do you contact me when my car is ready?

    We can ring, sms or email when your car is ready. We will confirm how you would like to be contacted when you drop the car off.

  • Why is regular servicing important?

    A regular car service is important to keep your vehicle in top condition. Keep up with your servicing and make an appointment to bring it into Mechanical Care. Our qualified and experienced mechanics will pay attention to every detail to ensure your car meets the highest possible standards of performance and safety.

  • What is involved in a Brake Service Only Service?

  • What is involved in Car Air Conditioning Servicing?

    Manufacturers recommend that Air Conditioning systems (AC & Climate Control) are serviced every two years, which includes evacuating the refrigerant gas and replacing the lubricating oil, as well as carrying out a system leak test. Maintenance will save you money in the long run and guarantee you comfort in the hottest months. Over time the air conditioning gases in your car will escape from the AC or Climate Control system. This is because car air conditioning systems are designed to leak.

  • Addition Service Items?

    If there are any additional service items, then we will quote on these while we are on site. We always get YOUR APPROVAL before any such work is carried out. If we don't have your approval, no further work is done on your vehicle, only what was originally agreed to at first contact. No nasty surprises when you pay for your service.

  • Does it cost more to service a European car?

    Generally it shouldn't. We locate European car parts from all over the world and have suppliers in the UK, USA, Singapore and across Europe. We locate genuine European car parts at a reduced cost than you might pay in Australia. We pass this saving onto our customers to ensure that they are not paying for the pleasure of owning and maintaining a European car. Ask us for an estimate today.
