While many things can go wrong with a car, it’s surprising just how common half a dozen problems keep cropping up. Check out the most common automotive repairs carried out every year, and keep an eye on some of these common complaints yourself. Regular automotive servicing can stop these little things growing and end up costing you thousands of bucks down the line.

Fixing the brakes

Brake repair is one of the most common jobs an automotive garage will undertake. It’s not surprising either, brakes are always being used and brake pads come under extreme stress and heat during even a short car ride. Everyday wear & tear on the brakes means that they are a regular suspect when it comes to automotive repairs.

Oil change

Something we can all do, but usually forget about it. An oil change is an everyday occurrence in garages up and down the country. Make sure you check your oil regularly, and it you’ve never had it changed, make an appointment and come see us here at Auto Super Shoppe Greerton.


Tyres will need replacing eventually, it’s only natural. Many people don’t feel the difference because tyres will wear down over time, so wait until it’s too late before having them replaced. Obviously, tyres can get damaged even if they’re brand new, so this is another reason why they make regular appearances on a automotive shop’s work list.


Electronics cover a wide range of things; from brake lights to blown fuses. Electrical faults are a very popular reason to bring your car in for repairs. If you have a European car, then make sure you bring it to a mechanic that has experience in foreign cars, not all automotive shops know what they’re doing with specialised cars.

Battery problems

Batteries don’t last forever, and when one fails then it’s time to come in and have it replaced. A flat or inefficient battery is a very common when it comes to automotive repairs, so check yours today!
