Prevention really is cheaper than the cure! Frequent servicing helps to prevent more costly mechanical failures down the track and can catch small problems before they snowball into something serious. Here at TSO Mechanical when you book any service with us we provide you with a safety check for free!
General Vehicle Maintenance
New to TSO? If so then a free safety check will be carried out as part of our service! Give us the day and have comfort in knowing our passionate (but sometimes grumpy) mechanics only do quality and thorough work and we will always consult further with you before proceeding if we deem a fix to be out of the job scope.
Regular logbook services are mandatory to keep your manufacturer's warranty valid, this covers you in the case of mechanical failures and can save you a substantial amount of money. A well-kept logbook will also increase the resale value of your vehicle.
Brakes need to be inspected regularly and serviced when needed, when some of the parts show signs of sticking, seizing up, rust or dirt build-up, these are the common causes of brake noises. TSO will check your brakes regardless of what you bring your vehicle in for.
Steering & Suspension
If your suspension is damaged or worn it’s important to get it fixed to avoid bigger issues. If your car drifts, pulls, sags, knocks or rattles these can be signs that part of your suspension is broken or worn. Delaying fixing these issues can severely affect braking, steering and affect your ability to control the car effectively.
Car Pre-Purchase Inspections
If you would like an honest opinion on the condition and value of a vehicle, then schedule an inspection with TSO on your test drive. We highly recommend a pre-purchase inspection, especially for private car sales. Let one of our experts give you feedback and have full confidence in your next investment.
Clutch & Transmission
Periodic maintenance on your transmission will prevent big problems and increase the lifespan of your vehicle. A worn or damaged clutch can leave you stranded, we supply and install quality clutch kits to suit your vehicle needs.

Diagnostics & Auto Electrical
Our technicians have the knowledge and resources for your vehicle’s circuits, wiring and computer systems.
