What are the car service cost estimates based on?

The Cost Comparison Guides 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.

How do I find out what each car service includes?
