Samford Auto Repairs

We can help you with everything from an oil change to an engine change.
We can handle any problem on both foreign and domestic vehicles.

Lube, Oil & Filters

Synthetic oil is better for the environment. They are low viscosity and hence create less friction or drag making the engine more efficient, thus using less fuel and creating less pollution. Samford Garage’s oil of choice is Valvoline. Normal (mineral) lubricating oils are of sufficient quality for all vehicles if you are dollar conscious.

Brake Service and Repairs

The brake system consists of a brake pedal operated by foot pressure; vacuum booster to give a soft pedal application; hydraulic master cylinder that uses brake fluid to expand hydraulic cylinders to operate disc pads on rotors on wheel cylinders on brake shoes on drums; a hand brake uses brake shoes to expand drums, usually a mechanical application. A brake safety check performed in every service.


Samford Garage has invested many thousands of dollars in the latest equipment available. Our point of difference is the technicians ability to read the information and optimise your car’s performance.

Wheels and Tyres

We can fit & balance your tyres for a smooth drive & with state-of-the-art wheel alignment machinery we can assure you and your family will be safe on the roads.  Samford Garage has a relationship with most suppliers of wheels and tyres.

Popular Questions

  • Is it worth the extra dollars to use synthetic motor oil?

    Yes, it is. Synthetic engine oils are produced through a synthesis process that takes very small molecules and assembles them into larger designer molecules with premium lubricating properties.

  • What parts should be replaced at what intervals?

    All filters, air filters, cabin filters, timing belts and chains. Engine oil should be replaced every 6 months or 10,000 kms, whichever comes first. The reason is because all engines have some degree of wear, and these particles usually sink to the bottom of the engine sump. Draining and replacing removes these particles. It is recommended to use engine flush to help clear the particles.

  • How do I keep track of routine maintenance?

    Samford Garage’s world class workshop program keeps track of the vehicle log book repairs and servicing.
