These are typically the sort of repairs that don't bring your vehicle to a standstill but do require attention before they become worse and/or affect other parts or systems in your vehicle adversely. Minor repairs typically don't include the tasks covered as part of your servicing routine. Replacing tires, for example, or topping up fluid levels, are servicing tasks rather than minor repairs.
If your car or truck displays any of these issues, it's important to get it checked out by a mechanic as soon as possible. The cause may only require a minor repair to rectify it, but equally, there could be a serious problem that means it's not safe to drive until the fault has been rectified.
• Problems with poor or intermittent braking.
• Intermittent, uneven or poor steering.
• A warning light on the dash.
• Whirring or banging from the engine.
• A smell of burning.
• Grinding noises, or any noise suggestive of metal on metal.
• A dead battery.
• Blown bulbs or a loose lighting connection.
• Ignition coil replacement or repair.
• Spark plug replacement.
• Replacing wiper blades.
• Replacing air filters (although if you book a service with us we will replace the air filters as part of the servicing schedule).
• Correcting poorly balanced tires.
• Sorting out climate control and other minor problems with a vehicle's electrics.
Note that your vehicle may have minor repairs that need completing, even if it's passed its roadworthy test. The roadworthy test only covers features relevant to the vehicle's safety. Issues such as poor running, poorly performing A/C or malfunctioning windows, for example, may still require remedial work, even if the vehicle is in a roadworthy state.
