Whenever you buy a new vehicle, it comes with a manufacturer’s warranty that protects you from the cost of mechanical failure. This warranty is only valid, however, if it is periodically serviced, according to its service schedule, by a certified mechanic. The mechanic follows the service procedure laid out in the vehicle’s logbook, and then records and stamps the book.
Some people think you will lose your warranty if you have your car serviced anywhere but a dealership, but it’s actually illegal for manufacturers to discriminate based on repairer, as long as they’re a certified mechanic.
Here at Marshall Automotive, our skilled mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Electric/hybrid vehicles

We offer a comprehensive vehicle inspection service here at Marshall Automotive, including, but not limited to:
Pre-Warrant Of Fitness (WOF) inspections
A WOF is required for you to legally drive on New Zealand roads. Older cars need yearly WOF inspections, and newer cars tend to need them every 3 years. You can get more information about WOF checks here.
Save yourself some time, and money, by getting a pre-WOF check here at Marshall Automotive. You can find out exactly what needs to be fixed to pass your WOF check, and ensure you get your Warrant of Fitness immediately on inspection, without the time limits and other restrictions of an actual WOF check.
Even if you trust the seller, there are plenty of problems that might be present with a secondhand vehicle that they are unaware of. Make sure you know exactly what you’re buying, and avoid any nasty surprises, with a thorough pre-purchase inspection.
If you’re planning a long road trip, we would recommend bringing your vehicle in for a pre-purchase inspection, to avoid unforeseen problems once you’re on the trip, and for your peace of mind.Contact us today!
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your car has. While other safety systems, such as airbags, act to reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.
Marshall Automotive’s expert mechanics can help you with:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
- Brake overhauls
- Brake Fluid Change/Bleed
Steering and Suspension Services
Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing issues such as play in the steering wheel, vibration at speed, and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip that your tyres exert on the road, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.
Here at Marshall Automotive, our skilled technicians can help you with:
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Wheel balancing
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs and replacement
- CV Boot replacement
Exhaust Repairs and Replacement
For your engine to operate, it needs a steady supply of two things. Most people can think of petrol, but it’s easy to forget that air is just as important for your engine to work at all.
This is where the exhaust system comes in. Without the exhaust, your engine bay would fill up with waste gases, preventing fresh air from entering and choking your engine.
So while it might not be obvious, keeping your exhaust in good working order is vital to keeping your car on the road.
Marshall Automotive’s experienced mechanics can help you with:
- Exhaust repair and replacement
- Exhaust modifications and upgrades
Air Conditioning Services
There’s not much worse than being stuck in traffic on a hot day without air conditioning. Your aircon actually degrades more from disuse than from use, as the rubber tubing and seals dry up and crack, allowing the refrigerant gas to leak out and rob your AC of its cooling power.
Here at Marshall Automotive, we can fully repair your air conditioning, starting with replacing any broken condensers and compressors, then replacing cracked tubing and seals, and finally recharging your system with refrigerant once we’re certain it’s airtight.Contact us today!
Clutch and Transmission Services
As part of the assemblage that transmits power from the engine to the wheels, the transmission is made up of some of the most intricate and sophisticated machinery in your car. Due to its sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into extremely costly repairs if left untreated.
If you notice a clunking or grinding noise when changing gears, slow response when changing gears, or a burning smell after driving, you may have an issue with your vehicle’s transmission.
Marshall Automotive’s adept technicians can help you with:
- Automatic transmissions
- CVT Transmissions
- Manual transmissions
- Repairs and replacement
- CV Joints
The engine is the heart of your vehicle. If your engine isn’t working, you don’t have a car, you have an expensive, heavy lawn ornament. It doesn’t matter what state the rest of your vehicle is, without a working engine, it’s useless.
Here at Marshall Automotive, our expert mechanics can help you with:
- Engine rebuilds
- Engine reconditioning
- Engine testing
- Engine blocks
- Cylinder heads
- EFI diagnostics
- Secondhand engine replacement
Cooling System Services
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a host of issues, from reduced power output and fuel efficiency, to decreased engine lifespan as overheating and leaking coolant damages the engine beyond repair.
Marshall Automotive’s proficient technicians can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repair and replacement
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
Auto Electrical Services
If the engine is the heart of the vehicle, the auto electrical network is the brain. This network handles everything from playing music and measuring fuel consumption, to assisting with braking and gear changes, even monitoring your engine and preventing lasting damage if a serious fault is detected.
Here at Marshall Automotive, our skilled auto electricians can help you with:
- Alternators and starter motors
- Battery check and replacement
- Component test and replacement
- Diagnostic scans
- Audio installaions
- Lighting upgrades
