At Lube Mobile, you can book in for a Kia service and any other car repairs as required. With our mobile mechanic network, we’ll visit your car wherever it is located (home and work are the most common) and complete your car service. All of our fully qualified mechanics can provide you with warranty servicing, or regular annual car service.
As we are located all over Australia, including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide, you can count on us to be there when you need us no matter where your car is. This is perfect if you’re travelling and something goes wrong and you need it repaired quickly from a mechanic you know and trust! As we are a single business and not franchised, we can cover you under our warranty for parts and labour no matter where or by which Lube Mobile mechanic the repairs were completed.
Booking is easy through our online booking system, or if you prefer the personal touch you can call one of our operators on 13 30 32 and they’ll take you through the process.
Knowing how much a Kia service will cost before you book in is perfect for planning where you’ll send your car. With Lube Mobile we are transparent with our pricing, for regular annual services you can see how much it will cost on our website, all you need to do is to enter your car details, including model name and year. Then we’ll generate a quotation of the price for your service.
If you are booking in for warranty service and need to know if we can match your Kia fixed price servicing, it is often best to call through to our customer service centre (13 30 32) and they can discuss it with you. This is because warranty services vary depending on your particular model and what the logbook requires.
Even if you have negotiated Kia capped price servicing, it can still pay to shop around and see if you are indeed getting the best deal possible.
At Lube Mobile, we can come to your home or workplace to get your Kia service completed. This allows you a great deal of convenience and means that you won’t need to consider travel options for getting your car to a dealership. If you need to pay for a taxi service to return you to work you should calculate this into the costs involved in getting your car serviced.
In an ideal world it is best to have your Kia service with a mechanic that can be considered as being ‘near me’, or in other words as close as possible to your home. With our fleet of mobile mechanics, Lube Mobile is always your closest mechanic in any situation.
It’s easy to think that when you have a Kia under warranty that you need to get the car serviced through the Kia dealership service centre. However, as long as your mechanic is capable of completing the service to the requirements of the manufacturer, then you can still keep your warranty. At Lube Mobile, we can complete servicing that satisfies the makers of Kia, and we’ll sign your logbooks after the service has finished.
If your Kia service is to maintain your warranty, then the frequency is determined by the vehicle logbooks. These have a set structure, and you can find out exactly when your car needs the next service by reading the odometer and flipping to the correct page in the logbook. You might expect a service to be completed every 5,000km in the first year, and then at around 15,000km in the later years. For warranty purposes, it is best to follow the guidelines as set out in the logbook.
After your Kia has finished with the warranty period (about 5-7 years old) we would recommend having a minor service once per year. Most standard suburban cars will drive around 15,000km in a year on average. If you find you’re driving the car much more than that, you may need two services per year.
We have structured our car service as annual, 3-year, and 6-year. Besides the annual service, you will need other items examined and replaced every three and six years, this is because some lubricants wear at different rates. If you are purchasing a second-hand Kia and you’re not sure when it was last serviced, we’d recommend booking in for our six-yearly service.
If your Kia is still covered under the warranty, we’ll follow the recommendations as set out in the logbook. All logbooks will state what is to happen at every interval, although after a certain amount of time (or kilometres) they tend to repeat. You can open your logbook to the appropriate page and check what it says needs to be done.
With a Kia service being completed on a car that has passed the warranty period, you can book in for a few different services. At Lube Mobile we have three basic services available, these are, an annual service, a three-year service, and the six-year service. Although the medium and major services cover a few more items, at a base level they all include:
Change of engine oil and filter
An under-bonnet check and top-up
A brake and safety inspection
A check of the cooling and charging systems
For a complete list of everything that is covered in the other services, you can check our website or call our service centre on 13 30 32.
