Logbook Service or “by the book”
Also known as a handbook service, a logbook service is when a service is carried out that follows the manufactures set guidelines for maintenance. It involves replacing and or checking fluids/filters at the manufactures set guidelines
It’s under current beliefs that you must go back to the dealership to hold your vehicles factory warranty. Actually, you are free to have your car service carried out by a mechanic or service centre of your choice provided they are qualified to do so and use parts that meet manufacturer specification.

If I lose my log book how do I get another?
Depending on the age of the vehicle, most log books can be purchased or replaced by the dealership and depending who has carried out all the servicing the logbook can be back dated in accordance with all the receipts of services carried out.

Who can Stamp my Logbook?
The logbook provided by the manufacturer will sometimes have an area to stamp when a service is carried out but can sometimes say it must be carried out by an ‘authorised dealer’.
