Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with a warranty that covers the cost of parts failure. This warranty is voided, however, if you do not have your vehicle periodically serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at SS Motors, our mechanics are fully certified to provide logbook services for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- LPG vehicles
- Light Commercial vehicles
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the difference between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, routinely bringing over a ton of metal to a complete stop, many times a day! For this reason, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
SS Motors’ experienced technicians can help you with:
- Brake component machining
- Brake component replacement
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering & Suspension
Faults in your steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the traction that your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.
Here at SS Motors, our skilled mechanics can provide the following steering and suspension services:
- Wheel alignments
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Power steering repairs
- All steering and suspension repairs
Clutch & Transmission
As part of the assemblage that transfers the power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are made up of some of the most intricate and complicated machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, even minor flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
If you’re having trouble changing gears or hear a grinding or clunking noise when you do so or if you notice a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have a problem with your clutch or transmission.
Here at SS Motors, our expert mechanics can provide:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic and manual transmission repairs and servicing
Radiators & Cooling Systems
If your cooling system is malfunctioning, it can cause multiple problems, from reduced power output and fuel efficiency to decreased engine lifespan as leaking coolant and overheating damages the engine. If these problems are ignored for long enough, they can render your vehicle immobile, with the cost of repairs being comparable to that of buying a secondhand car!
SS Motors’ technicians can perform:
- Radiator/heater unit repairs
- Head gasket replacement
- Coolant flush and leak check
- Thermostat check and replacement
Auto Electrical Services
As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being governed by the onboard auto electrical network.
The network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption to assisting with braking and gear changing, even monitoring the engine bay and pre-emptively putting the vehicle into limp mode if any serious flaws are detected, to prevent any lasting damage.
Here at SS Motors, our expert auto electricians can help you with:
- Alternators and starter motors
- Battery test and replacement
- Component test and replacement
- Accessory installations
- Audio installations
Tyres & Wheels
The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in how much traction you exert on the road surface, especially during wet weather, where the treads of the tyre act as channels to divert the water away from where the contact patches meet the road.
SS Motors sells and fits a wide range of tyres from major brands for all makes and model of:
