Our Skoda Service

Autohaus Northshore is a boutique independent European car workshop in Sydney’s Northshore offering Skoda car repairs and Skoda servicing.

Skoda was created by two Czech designers at the turn of last century and is now owned by Volkswagon. Skoda cars share the mechanical platform of Volkswagons, using Volkswagon engines, gear boxes, suspension, brakes and electronic components. As a Volkswagon specialist, we have the parts, tools and equipment to service the Skoda range. This gives us the capability to extend our service to Skoda customers.

We are an award-winning, independent European car workshop, offering European quality repairs and servicing to our customers in the Northshore, Northern Districts and Hills District.

We Are Your Best Alternative to Dealers

We can save you up to 30% on the service and repair of your Skoda, in comparison to dealer prices.

Our Approach to Skoda Customers

Our approach is individualised to suit our Skoda customer.

We will consult with you about repairs that need doing, your budget and your timing. Often we will be able to recommend a multi-staged approach; i.e. attend to the most urgent immediately and schedule other repairs month by month. That way, you can maintain your prestige vehicle at its optimum performance while spreading your costs over a few months.

In addition, we will aim to repair components rather than opt for the “replacement mentality” of dealers. Our number one priority is to benefit our Skoda customers so that they return and refer their friends.

Technical Expertise in Skoda Vehicles

Servicing your new Skoda at Autohaus Northshore will not void or affect your warranty.

At Autohaus Northshore, our technicians are fully trained and some have specialised in Skoda repairs.

Autohaus Northshore is run by owner/manager, Nigel Hook, who has over 25 years’ technical experience in European cars, both in Australia and abroad in the USA and the UK. His analytical and diagnostic skills and his technical experience ensure he runs a tight ship.

The company was established in 1999 and has grown exponentially since then – a vote of confidence from satisfied customers.

Maintain Your Skoda & Reduce Unexpected Expenses

At Autohaus Northshore we are able to indicate additional repairs, servicing and checks that should be performed in order to maintain your Skoda at optimal performance and minimise unexpected expensive repairs down the road. This in turn, protects your Skoda – your valuable investment. To discuss this further, please phone Nigel Hook on: 9987 4747 or 9987 1522.

  • We can provide you with genuine Skoda parts or offer OEM parts (Original Manufacturers Equipment) under warranty, at competitive prices. Unlike dealers, we are not restricted to one supplier, which provides you with flexibility, choice and value for money. All new parts replaced carry a twelve-months/20,000km warranty.
  • At Autohaus Northshore, we use FUCHS lubricants which comply with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Due to the high quality of the FUCHs products, they are often used by leading manufacturers as original equipment.
  • As part of our   Skoda servicing criteria, we use specific diagnostic equipment to reset your service reminder and your vehicle computers. We also check for any electronic faults logged in the computers of your vehicle, evaluate them and report them to you. Please see our Tech Pages for helpful information and service tips.
  • By having your car serviced at Autohaus Northshore , you will NOT void your Skoda Statutory Warranty. We can service your car from the first service or any subsequent service, without jeopardising your Manufacturer’s Warranty. We will make sure that any problem with your car that could potentially be covered by warranty, is brought to your attention and advise you on the best strategy to have it repaired under warranty through a Skoda dealership. We offer an End of Warranty inspection for our customers so they may take advantage of any work that could be carried out within the warranty period. Information provided here is only a summary, there are always variations based on the year and model of your car. The information is based on our experience and shared here to provide the owner with a general understanding of his/her vehicle. Your owner’s manual has a comprehensive description of your individual vehicle’s requirement.
