Volkswagen Car Service North Shore

VW Car Service North Shore

Volkswagen’s famous logo is ‘Das Auto’. Translated, it means. ‘The Car’, which would make you think that VW is all about cars. It is, of course. But Volkswagen is all about people as well (its name actually means ‘The People’s Car’) and Volkswagen has learned that providing innovative, quality cars at an approachable price is a great way to make people happy. As a result the Volkswagen range of quality cars spans a huge spectrum. VW makes small cars, family cars, luxury cars, convertible cars, performance cars, people movers, four wheel drive and utes – all with top quality German design and precision engineering.

Of course all this German technology and innovation requires top quality car servicing as well, and here at Autoactive Car Solutions, that’s exactly what we provide.

Your VW Car Service

VW has always prided itself on being a little different from the rest of the world, but like any car (particularly German cars) your VW need to be serviced regularly. If you look after your VW it will give you many years of faithful service. Leave it unloved, and even the finest innovations and precision engineering will not save it from an expensive and painful breakdown. Volkswagen car service intervals depend on your particular model, but in general VWs service intervals are set for every 15,000 kilometres, or once every 12 months

Quality Car Service at a Quality Price

Yes, a quality European car does cost more to maintain and repair than a domestic car. But it doesn’t have to cost that much more – not with Autoactive Car Solutions. For a start, all our oil and log book services are a fixed price, so you know exactly what a service will cost. If your VW needs further repairs, we give an itemised quote in priority order, detailing all the costs. And while we use genuine VW and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts, we source them directly from the importers (not through the expensive dealership), which helps bring the price down considerably.

Of course all our VW car services and repairs are fully documented, and come with a warranty.

Keep Your VW in Great Shape

Love your VW? Of course you do. We’re big fans of VWs, and we can help you keep yours in great condition. So while your car may be not due for a service, if you get a scratch or bump, or something feels wrong with the handling, make sure you bring it in to us ASAP. A small problem can generally be fixed quickly and inexpensively before it becomes a big problem that costs a lot. Plus our years of working with VWs meant that we can often spot what the problem is quicker than an ordinary mechanic (and yes, even the dealership as well!).
