Todd and the team at Brown’s Autobahn have been looking after my cars since 1996. I appreciate the way Todd and the Brown’s boys look after their customers. They are friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, resourceful and honest. Nothing is too much trouble for the Brown’s Autobahn team. They take  the long term view of customer relations and always look for the win win result for their customer. This is true not only for their regular customers but also for the one-off travellers in need of a quick and economical rescue. The culture in the workshop is impressive. The workshop  is immaculate. The team is experienced, close knit, and importantly, on the same page as Todd with regard to looking after customers. Over the past 17 years Todd has worked on a range of vehicles for me, both old and new. These include my current pride and joy, a 1958 356A Porsche,  as well as Porsche 911’s , a 1959 Karmann Ghia, Kombis,  and other collectible Volkswagens. Our current model Mercedes and various current models of VW’s for our family and business are also serviced by brown’s Autobahn. In my view, there is no substitute for experience. Todd has an impressive understanding of all cars, old and new, on road and off. When you have a significant investment in motor vehicles for business and pleasure,  you want only the best people looking after them. That is why I choose Brown’s Autobahn.”
Tim Banks, Buderim
Todd and his staff have been looking after my car for me for 11 years now, and to be honest, I just can’t imagine trusting anyone else the way I know I can trust them. That is why I am happy to drive up from NSW to have Todd service my car.I live in a rural area and travel long distances on dirt roads, so I need to be absolutely sure that my car is reliable. I cannot afford to have it let me down.Todd is reliable and absolutely fastidious. You only have to have a look around his workshop to see that! When I drive my car after a service, I know everything I have paid for has been done. Unfortunately, I have had bad experiences with dealerships in the past when work I have paid for has been done badly, or not at all.Todd also keeps and eye on things and helps me to forward plan by letting me know about work that may need to be done in the future. He is such a genuine, honest person and I recommend him to everyone I know.All of the staff at Brown’s treat me respectfully, and I know they truly value my custom. I have built up such a great rapport with them over the years.And the icing on the cake is that when I collect my car, it is beautiful and clean, and they always leave a fresh flower on the dashboard for me. At Brown’s you are not just treated like a number. I really value that.”
Sandy Tamblyn, Tabulum, NSW

We have only just ‘discovered’ Brown’s Autobahn, and we truly wish we had found them years ago. Previously when we had bought a new car, we were led to believe that the only way we could maintain our manufacturer’s warranty was if we took the car back to the dealership for servicing. That was a terrible and unbelievably costly experience for us. On one occasion, we took our new car in for it’s first ‘routine’ service, and apart from being charged $800 for a ‘routine’ service on a brand new car, we were also charged $2000 for new brake pads. Unbelievable. After we met Todd, we learned that you don’t have to take your car to the dealership to maintain your new car warranty, and you don’t compromise the value of your vehicle either, because Brown’s has the same diagnostic tools and equipment as the dealers, and use genuine parts when they service your car. With a different vehicle, the dealership actually told us that they couldn’t fix a problem we were having with our car (which we had bought from them as a secondhand vehicle). We took it to Todd, fully expecting to be presented with a scary bill (because that has been our experience with the dealerships). Not only was the bill far less than we had anticipated, he also fixed the problem that the dealership couldn’t. Whenever Brown’s service our cars, they let us know if anything extra needs doing (like new tyres) and give us the option of getting it done at the time or bringing it in on another day. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the cars are always immaculate when we collect them, and we get a little fresh flower on the dashboard as well. The contrast with what we have experienced in the past could not be more stark. We trust Todd implicitly and we know that the value he delivers in peace of mind goes far beyond what we pay him for his services. We could not recommend Brown’s highly enough. We just wish we had taken our cars there years ago.”
Cameron & Tanya Outridge, Twin Waters
I have been taking my car to Brown’s Autobahn for servicing for 2 years now. I was immediately impressed by how spotless the workshop is and the obvious care the staff take of my car. Safety is paramount to me, and I know that with Brown’s looking after my car it is always in optimal condition. If they find anything unforeseen during a service, they always call me and let me know. They give me options so that I am able to plan for any work that needs to be done. The billing is extremely efficient, clear and concise. I can easily see what has been done and this is enormously reassuring from a warranty point of view. The car is always returned to me cleaned and smelling beautiful. I just know that if there is such meticulous attention to detail on the inside of my car, everything else is also being dealt with at the same level.”
Belinda Warren, Burnside, Nambour
Todd and his staff at Brown’s Autobahn have been looking after my car for around two years. I have been extremely happy with the work they have done for me, the service I have enjoyed has been exceptional. The staff are particularly knowledgeable and they always let me know if additional work needs to be done on the car, beyond what I was expecting. They also take the time to explain the bill to me. I appreciate how clean and organised the workshop is, it certainly enhances my confidence in their work. And the bonus is that my car is always returned to me clean and detailed. I value this extra service very much.”
Dale Klenner, Nambour
We have been happy clients of Browns Autobahn for close on ten years. In that time we have received excellent service for a range of vehicles, including log book servicing for new vehicles. Todd and his team are always great to deal with and their premises a pleasure to visit. Many of our friends already use them and we are happy to recommend them.”
Ralph & Edwina Shannon, Dulong
Congratulations to Todd and his team at Browns Autobahn for their holistic approach to mechanical repairs.  They consistently provide a very friendly and professional level of service, with exceptional attention to detail.  Always willing to go the extra mile, we love all the unexpected touches (particularly the lollies!) that guarantee happy clients.  We would strongly recommend Todd and the team if you are looking for an honest, reliable & highly trained team of mechanics.”
Peter & Judi, Rock Real Estate

We have been taking our vehicles to Brown’s Autobahn for servicing since 2007. Todd takes great pride in his work, and we feel truly valued as customers. The attention to detail is meticulous, from the spotless workshop and the friendly professional staff to the beautifully detailed car with the gardenia blossom on the dashboard when the car is returned. I have recommended Brown’s Autobahn to both friends and work colleagues who have also been most impressed with their exemplary service. Safety is paramount to us and having our vehicles looked after by Brown’s Autobahn gives us peace of mind.”

Our 20-Point Checklist http://brownsautobahn.com.au/car-servicing/ http://brownsautobahn.com.au/car-servicing/#comments Thu, 30 May 2013 11:50:52 +0000 http://brownsautobahn.com.au/?p=1 Having your car serviced regularly is the key to ensuring it is safe, reliable and retains it’s value.

Toyota Car Services and Repairs

Brown’s Autobahn employs a Twenty Point Servicing Checklist of tasks which we routinely perform as part of a standard service.

  • Road test vehicle and reset service indicator
  • Check battery terminals and electrolyte level.
  • Check filter elements.
  • Check fluid levels.
  • Check spark plugs.
  • Check engine drive belt.
  • Check car tyre pressures and condition.
  • Check all brake components.
  • Check exhaust system.
  • Check suspension components.
  • Check all steering components.
  • Check and top up fluid levels.
  • Add windscreen washer additive to reservoir.
  • Drain engine oil.
  • Replace engine oil filter.
  • Replace sump plug washer.
  • Refill car engine with new engine oil.
  • Check levels.
  • Check operation of all lights, windscreen wipers and handbrake adjustment.
  • Road test your car

Too often, drivers are left stranded and frustrated on the side of the road with a dead battery, flat tire, or busted belt. Disabled vehicles create a dangerous situation for everyone on the road, especially those left standing on the shoulder.

Fortunately, these types of situations can be avoided by getting your car checked regularly and taking care of any damaged or worn parts before they disable your vehicle. Regular, routine maintenance and repairs can help prevent you from being stuck on the side of the road.

When you purchase a new or used car, you will receive a booklet with detailed maintenance schedules for you to follow. Today’s engine has advanced, but there are still details that should be checked regularly. Keeping your car well maintained is the key to preventing breakdowns in dangerous or remote areas. Brake inspections, fluid level checks, oil changes, tire inflation checks, belt checks, and inspection of lights are important.

Proper maintenance should be performed every 15,000 Km. Sometimes these checks will involve ,only an oil change. Other times, a more complex check of items including gauges, sensors, and belts is required. You should have your vehicle checked before heading off on holidays.

It does not matter how old or new your car is, or whether it is a car or truck, diesel or petrol; all vehicles need a service as recommended by the manufacturer. This promotes your vehicle to last to its full potential with little to no mechanical problems. It is like preventative care for your car.

Perhaps the most important reason to following an auto maintenance schedule is to preserve the resale value of your vehicle. While all vehicles depreciate on an ongoing basis, completing recommended maintenance can help raise the resale value of your vehicle.

Whether you foresee selling to a dealership or private party, having proof of all completed maintenance on the vehicle can increase the value of your vehicle.

Some car buyers are fanatical about maintenance, and closely following an auto maintenance schedule will appease them. From the dealership’s end, a vehicle with a good maintenance record is easier to make a certified pre-owned vehicle.

Whether you have scheduled maintenance completed at a Sunshine Coast dealership or an independent mechanic, be sure to save all documentation relating to maintenance items and other repairs in order to keep the warranty intact and raise the resale value of the vehicle.

We don’t have a service quota to fulfill each day which means we can afford to take the time to go through each and every vehicle with a fine tooth comb and make sure every element of our service is properly completed.

And for your peace of mind, if we replace a part, we will always show you the old part so you can be sure the work has been done for you.

We ensure our accounts are itemized so you can clearly see the work we have done, and if you have any questions or concerns we are more than happy to go through the account with you.
