Car Service Statistics

Car Service statistics by a leading technical vehicle data provider Autodata

Show Toyota Hilux was the most common vehicle taken into workshops throughout Australasia during 2016, closely followed by the Nissan Navara D40, with Holden Commodore VE in third place.

But don’t take this out of context. Without measuring this finding against the numbers of each vehicle on the roads, no conclusions about vehicle performance can be reliably reached.

The Commodore was the only saloon car to make it into the top five most serviced vehicles in 2016.

Leading aftermarket data provider Autodata tracks the service numbers each year and lists the top ten most serviced vehicles:

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) have recently
provided updated information regarding consumer rights and servicing cars
As an independent workshop owner, you may sometimes be asked by a customer or vehicle owner if they’ll be
voiding their new car warranty if you service their car.
The answer depends on whether the warranty is offered by the manufacturer or if it’s an aftermarket extended
warranty plan offered by the dealer. The difference is outlined on the opposite pages.
In the case of a manufacturers warranty (and provided you service the vehicle in accordance with any specified
requirements), you can confiidently assure your customer that;
Their manufacturer’s warranty will remain valid and so will their
protection under the Consumer Guarantees Regime.
TO SERVICE OR NOT:
MAINTAINING VEHICLES UNDER WARRANTY
under warranty. This information is consistent with previous guidance that the Australian Consumer Laws (ACL)
gives car owners a guaranteed level of protection for vehicles they buy and that this guarantee applies regardless
of any other warranty offered by a vehicle manufacturer.
Furthermore, there is NO REQUIREMENT under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) for a vehicle to be
serviced by an authorised dealer in order for the consumer guarantees to apply.

Counterfeit Parts – What’s the Real Story?

ACCORDING TO MOST dictionaries, “genuine” means true and authentic, or in other words, not a fake or counterfeit. Notice there’s nothing in that definition about who makes the part.

 

Allautos always looks for value for money for their customers and we only provide quality genuine or well reputable aftermarket parts for our customer’s cars. An article from Practical Motoring caught our eyes and we have high a few of their points, you can click on the below link to visit the full web article.

Quality Aftermarket parts

Quality Aftermarket part However, the FCAI (Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries), says “genuine parts are made or selected by the vehicle’s maker and rigorously tested by that maker as an integral component of the vehicle to meet high quality, safety and performance standards.” That is true, but another, more widely used and more accurate term for such parts is OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts, or sometimes just OE parts.

Then there are a range of companies who produce parts that are not manufacturer approved or supplied, and the usual term for these parts is “aftermarket”. Reputable aftermarket companies absolutely do not want their goods passed off as OEM, and in fact go to great lengths to market their name and products as different to, or better than the OEM equivalent.
There are fake versions of some well-known aftermarket parts too, so you can have genuine aftermarket parts as well as genuine OEM parts. What you definitely want to avoid is counterfeits of any part.
How to avoid fake parts? It’s pretty simple, just use your brain, just like you’d avoid a $25 set of “Ray Ban” sunglasses. If for example the OEM wheels are $400 each from a dealer, then the OEM wheels are not going to be $100 each brand new from Joe’s Car Parts. Logic says those wheels are either stolen or counterfeit. However, aftermarket wheels – not branded, or even resembling the OEM wheels – may well be cheaper than OEM. Simply, if it looks too good to be true then it is. Again, work with a trusted mechanic who will know what’s what.
