Scheduled servicing now permitted under Victoria's lockdown

In good news for Victorian drivers, the state government has relaxed its public health restrictions to allow scheduled or logbook servicing of cars to go ahead. Previously, only emergency repairs, critical maintenance and recall work were permitted to take place during metropolitan Melbourne's ongoing lockdown, but from September 16 onwards any vehicle can be booked in for a routine service.

Skoda offers extended warranty and fixed-price servicing to Victorian buyers

Skoda is doing its best to entice Victorians stuck at home and day-dreaming about a new car. The Czech brand is offering a free seven-year, unlimited kilometre warranty for all new and demonstrator Skoda models sold in Victoria, which is two years more than the standard warranty. New and demo Skodas will also come with a three-year, 45,000km scheduled service pack for new cars delivered in the southern state, also at no extra cost.
