When looking for your Volkswagen service you can get Lube Mobile to complete it for you as well as any other car repairs that you require. Lube Mobile offers a convenient service, which means you won’t need to drop your car off to receive a Volkswagen dealership service. All our mobile mechanics are highly trained and can complete a car service on your vehicle that complies with your manufacturer's warranty.
As Lube Mobile has vans operating in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and many other locations all over Australia, you can consider us as the mechanic ‘near me’. We are your local mechanic and can offer you a price that allows you to compare us to your Volkswagen fixed price servicing.
If your vehicle has passed its warranty period then a Volkswagen service can be completed on an annual basis. This allows you to be sure about how much everything will cost as all the services generally cover the same thing and having Volkswagen capped price servicing is almost a given. At Lube Mobile, we can show you exactly what we will do for your car and how much our prices are before you book in. This means that there will not be any ‘surprise’ moments. We’ll perform a complete check over and look for anything that might become an issue or need to be replaced. But, with anything that needs work, we’ll always talk to you first before doing anything that you haven’t specifically requested.
If your vehicle is still within its warranty period then you should be following the service guide as laid out inside your logbook. A Volkswagen service needs to be completed in line with what has been set out so you can maintain your warranty. For very new cars you may find that the first service is completed very early in the car's life. After that first service, it is common for a car to be serviced around every 10,000km. At Lube Mobile, we can provide warranty services on your Volkswagen. All of our vans are operated by a highly skilled mechanic and they are fully aware of the needs of your vehicle when performing a warranty service.
After your car has passed the warranty period, you are free to decide how often your car gets serviced. At Lube Mobile, we recommend getting it serviced at least once per year. For most people in Australia, this translates to getting it serviced between 10,000 - 20,000km. Beyond the annual servicing, we’d recommend having further work completed during your service at the three-year and six-year mark. This is because lubricants can become less effective at different rates of use. Getting your car regularly serviced with the same mechanic is an easy way to keep track of what your car requires and is the best way to make sure that everything is being taken care of properly.
When you book in for your Volkswagen service with Lube Mobile, we can tell you exactly what is covered. The specifics of your service will depend on the model of Volkswagen you have and if the vehicle is still under its warranty period. For a warranty service, you can check in your logbook for the specifics of what will need to be looked at, as following this is required to maintain the warranty and guarantees.
For an annual post-warranty service, Lube Mobile will complete:
An under-bonnet check and top-up
Change of engine oil and filter
A brake and safety inspection
A check of the cooling and charging systems
We’ll perform a complete safety check and visually inspect components of the car that may need some further attention. We’ll provide you with a report that details anything that may need to be replaced or repaired. If we find anything that needs immediate attention, we’ll contact you and provide you with an estimate for the repair.
At Lube Mobile, we can keep track of your Volkswagen service history, and we can provide that to you. This can be perfect if you are considering upgrading your Volkswagen to a newer model. Another way to check your service history is to have a look at your logbooks. All Volkswagens will have a logbook, most people will keep these in the glovebox as that’s the most convenient location.
If you have recently purchased the vehicle and can’t find a logbook and it has not been serviced by Lube Mobile, you can check for a service sticker. These are often placed in the top right corner of the windscreen. If the sticker has a phone number for the mechanic that last serviced the car, you can call that and ask if they can provide you with a service history. However, if the previous owner has not gone to the same mechanic, then getting a service history may be difficult, bordering on impossible.
The cost of a Volkswagen service can depend on many different factors. For example, the service for a Golf or Polo will differ from that of a Caravelle or an Amarok. This is due to the difference in engine size and what specific items need to be replaced during the service.
At Lube Mobile, we will inform you of the price of your service when you book in. If you need further information about the costs of your service you can call our customer service team on 13 30 32.
