A car log book is basically a guide offered by the car makers in terms of maintaining information regarding the engine and its performance. It guides your mechanic on what maintenance needs to be done at that certain service interval. It’s also used as documentary proof of services performed on your car. This log book becomes a vehicle’s “blue book”, and it’s essentially a map to guide you where to service your car. Without this book, there can be significant confusion as to what needs to be done.
Most mechanics who do log book service will also be able to arrange for the servicing warranty to be included in the log book service. However, if you have an extended warranty, you may not be able to get that warranty extended to your vehicle. For that reason, make sure you ask beforehand if it’s possible to add the warranty to the log book. Many reputable mechanics nowadays offer the extended warranty along with their log book service.
One of the main reasons that people don’t get their cars fixed is because they think it will take too long. With log book servicing, you don’t have to wait too long, because the mechanics just need to get the parts and perform some basic repairs. After that, the rest is up to you. You can choose to do the repairs yourself, or you can ask your mechanic to recommend someone who does log book servicing for them.
