Volkswagen Specialised Service
  • I have been getting my car serviced by Nigel and the boys at Autohaus for the last 8 years and wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Their service is always excellent - both with the work they do on my car and dealing with them over the phone with any customer service. Always friendly and very professional. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Servicing Your New Volkswagen at Autohaus Northshore

Servicing your new VW at Autohaus Northshore will not void or affect your warranty because we follow the service schedule of the manufacturer and use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts.

Maintenance Reduces Unexpected Expenses in VW cars

In order to maintain your VW at optimal performance and minimize unexpected expensive repairs down the track, we can examine your VW and identify any additional repairs and servicing that will protect your valuable investment. We also carry out a safety inspection at this time.

We comply with manufacturer’s log book servicing for your VW. In some circumstances, however, it is unnecessary to perform all the recommended servicing items. In these instances, we will explain to you in detail what is recommended, what repairs or replacements we have identified and provide you with the information so YOU can make the choice. For example, the manufacturer may recommend that coolant and brake fluid be replaced “at periodic times”. We have the equipment to test these fluids and gauge whether they do in fact, require replacement. All servicing is carried out to the highest standard and fully documented. Service documents and records are kept for each car on our database.

We use the latest high-tech equipment and OEM parts (Original Equipment Manufacturer’s parts) on all repairs and service to give you total peace of mind when it comes to quality and reliability. In addition, as a Audi service customer you are entitled to a risk-free 12 month guarantee on all replacement parts.
