Logbook servicing is crucial in keeping your new car warranty. Lots of people think their vehicle has to be serviced at a dealership to keep their warranty, but as long as your vehicle is serviced by a certified mechanic according to the specifications of the logbook, it’s illegal for car manufacturers to discriminate.
Here at GT Garage, our expert mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook servicing for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Electric/hybrid vehicles
AIS Vehicle Inspections
You might need an inspection from an Approved Inspection Station (AIS) if:
- Your vehicle is not registered in Tasmania (even if it was registered in another state)
- If you’re re-registering a vehicle with registration which has expired for more than three months
- To clear defect notices
- If your vehicle has been issued with a call-in notice

Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems, like airbags, can only reduce the severity of an accident, your brakes can actually act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop. Your brakes also suffer an astonishing amount of wear, which is why we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
Here at GT Garage, our skilled technicians can help you with:
- Brake component replacement
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering And Suspension
Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing issues such as play in the steering wheel, body lean through corners, and vibrations at speed. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.
GT Garage’s talented mechanics can help you with:
- Wheel alignments
- Shocks and springs
- Wheel balancing
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering
- Lift kits and 4WD upgrades
Clutch and Transmission
As part of the drivetrain, the assembly that transmits power from the engine to the wheels, the transmission is made up of some of the most intricate and complex machinery in your vehicle. Due to its sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into costly repairs. If you notice a burning smell after driving, a loss of power output, or a grinding noise when changing gears, you should have your transmission checked sooner rather than later.
GT Garage’s expert mechanics can help you with:
- Automatic transmissions
- Manual transmissions
- CV Joints
- Repairs and replacement
Engine And Exhaust
While you can count on people to remember their engine needs petrol, most forget that it needs oxygen to run just as much. Your exhaust is responsible for drawing waste gases out of the engine bay, allowing fresh air to enter, so has a profound effect on engine operation. Your engine is the hardest working component in your vehicle, and even with regular maintenance, repairs are sometimes needed.
GT Garage can help you with:
- Exhaust replacement
- Engine rebuilds
- Engine testing
- EFI diagnostics
- Dyno tuning
Radiator and Cooling Systems
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause a host of issues ranging from reduced power output and fuel efficiency to decreased engine lifespan. If these issues are left untreated, they can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to buying a secondhand car!
Here at GT Garage, our skilled mechanics can help you with:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs
- Head gaskets
- Coolant flush
- Thermostat check and replacement
As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is governed by the onboard auto electrical network. This network handles everything from playing music and measuring fuel consumption to assisting with braking and gear changes, even monitoring your engine and notifying you of any issues it detects.
GT Garage’s skilled auto electricians can help you with:
- Alternators and starter motors
- Battery check and replacement
- Component test and replacement
- Diagnostic scans
- Accessories for sale
- Accessory installation
- Audio system installation
- Solar/battery systems

- Light commercial (vans and utes)
We can also help with tyre fitting, tyre rotation, and tyre balancing to help your tyres last longer.Contact us now to book your service
Dyno Tuning and Performance Upgrades
Here at GT Garage, we specialise in sport and performance vehicles, and offer a wide range of performance upgrades, including dyno tuning.
Our expert technicians will put your vehicle on our dynamometer and measure your engine’s performance, creating an engine profile unique to your vehicle. Once our technicians have your profile, they can tune it to provide you with improved performance, increasing torque and fuel efficiency, then apply that engine profile through reprogramming your ECU (Engine Control Unit). This is a completely non-destructive, reversible upgrade.
