Frequently Asked Questions

What are the car service cost estimates based on?

The Cost Guide Calculator give you a car service cost estimate which is generated using costings from real mechanics nationwide.

The car service cost comparison estimate is based on manufacturer's logbook servicing and includes labour and parts. Any additional work or maintenance outside of the logbook service are not covered in the guide. Actual cost will vary between service centres and locations.

How many intervals should I select for a car servicing comparison for?

If you are buying a new car, we recommend looking at the Lifetime Service Costs to get a general idea. People usually keep a car for 5 years or more, so when buying a used car we suggest you select the service intervals for the next 5 years based on the current KMs of each specific car are looking at.

What is the difference between the Service Cost Guide and Cost Guide Calculator?

The Service Cost Guide will give you an estimate cost range for 1 service interval. It is free, however you are limited to how many times you can use it per year.

The Cost Guide Calculator gives you full access to all service intervals for your car. It provides a cost estimate based on the average prices across Australia. You are able to use the calculator to make unlimited comparisons and it allows you to compare multiple cars at the same time. You can also compare costs in multiple ways. Whether you want to find out the cost of your next service, or when researching which car to buy next, the Cost Guide Calculator is a great budgeting tool. Cars saved into your account never expire.

Prices are live and change as industry prices change so check back as often as you like.
