How we rate car servicing chains

Our review compares car servicing chains on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which car servicing chain they think is best!

Canstar Blue surveyed 343 Australians for their feedback on the car servicing chain(s) they’ve had their car serviced at in the last two years.

  • The outcomes reported in these ratings are measured via accredited research panels managed by Qualtrics.

Respondents rate their satisfaction with their car servicing chain brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
  • Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a car servicing chain brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
  • Communication: the car servicing chain were able to clearly communicate any issues with the car in simple terms, as well as outline potential fixes and next steps.
  • Customer service: the car servicing chain’s staff were readily available to contact, were able to answer queries and solve issues that arose.
  • Effectiveness: the car servicing chain were able to fix issues with the car, with the car seeming to run smoother after the service.
  • Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and service provided by the car servicing chain.
  • Cost transparency: the car servicing chain clearly outlined the costs associated with the service and/or repair.
  • Efficiency: the car servicing chain were able to complete the service and/or repair within the promised timeframe.

The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.

  • Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
  • When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
    • The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.

Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

  • Bridgestone Select Tyre & Auto
  • Mycar Tyre & Auto Service

How often should you get your car serviced?

Most car manufacturers and servicing chains recommend that you service your car every six months or 10,000km, whichever comes first. However, depending on the car brand, whether you need a major or minor service, and what your logbook recommends, you may be able to leave it a bit longer.
