Mobile Mechanic Melbourne Western Suburbs Auto Repairers You Can Trust

Mobile Mechanic Melbourne Western SuburbsAuto problems never arise when it is most convenient. In fact, it is almost guaranteed that you will have car problems on your way to work, heading to an important meeting, or simply when you are already running late to a class. This can be devastating for the driver, and leave anyone absolutely terrified that not only will they have to spend hundreds of dollars on a tow, but countless more to repair whatever the problem is that caused their car to malfunction. Fortunately mobile mechanics are a fast and effective solution to almost any automotive problem you may face.
Mobile mechanics are highly trained and professional mechanics that are available on a short period of time and can generally reach you in less than a half hour. Additionally, these mechanics ensure that you have absolutely no waiting time like a traditional shop repair, and they can fix a multitude of vehicles as well as an endless number of problems you may be face!

Whether you need tune ups, an oil change, truck repair, RV repair, or simply a standard car repair, a mobile mechanic can be dispatched in no time to come fix the problem. They are experienced in all types of vehicles and can fix almost any issue that arises, unlike most shops. Instead of having to desperately search for a proper shop that not only has the parts in, but is actually certified to repair your type of vehicle, calling a mobile mechanic in your time of need ensures that you have exactly the right mechanic to fix your problem!

So what sort of problems can a mobile mechanic western suburbs expert fix? Well fortunately they are experienced and qualified to not only diagnose, but fix a wide range of automotive issues. Simple flat tyre repair is a common callout for mobile mechanics, as well as lockouts too. These are issues that can be fixed within ten minutes of the mechanic arriving so that you can resume your day without any further interruptions! Fortunately mobile mechanics are trained to perform more extensive repairs.

If you accidentally left your car on while you went into a store and the battery is dead, then you may need a mechanic called out to do a battery check and replace. While the mechanics can often give you a jump, sometimes a battery completely dies and it cannot hold a charge making it essential for the entire battery to be replaced.

Other issues that are common, yet quite extensive, for mobile mechanics are alternator and starter motor problems. If your alternator is going bad, or simply needs a quick adjustment from a skilled mechanic, then you may have been noticing problems with your auto starting. Additionally, other common symptoms for alternator problems are flickering lights because this signifies the fact that the alternator is not allowing the battery to properly charge. While replacing an alternator is complex, mobile mechanics can handle it and get you back on your way. You may need a quick jump for your battery, but you can expect to avoid that several day waiting list to get into the shop for an alternator repair when you choose a mobile mechanic!

Another common problem that RV’s, cars, and trucks often have is a bad starter. You will likely have been noticing some symptoms of a bad starter when you go to turn the key to the ignition and you only get clicking noises in return. If nothing happens after several attempts, then calling out a mobile mechanic to diagnose the problem can help narrow it down. Fortunately, you will likely have just a bad battery or even a poor alternator that needs repaired. However, if you do unfortunately have a faulty starter then your trusted mobile mechanic can quickly diagnose it and begin the repair!

Overall, mobile mechanics are truly a phenomenal option to any shop for those quick on the go repairs that cannot wait. You should not have to fear calling a tow truck and paying an exorbitant amount of money to get your car hauled into a shop on top of whatever repair costs you face. Instead, a mobile mechanic can easily diagnose the problem on the spot and generally get you back on your way within a half hour or less!

Not even VW knows how much the emissions scandal will cost

Posted on

We came across the following article regarding VW that we felt would be worthwhile sharing on our blog.  It covers the latest updates regarding some of what has been going on in the media regarding the diesel emissions scandal from VW.

In a statement, VW attributes these delays to “remaining open questions and the resulting valuationcalculations relating to the diesel emissions issue.” The company believes that operating results will be similar to last year, but the special costs of the scandal will affect the automaker’s financial performance.VW hasn’t been very open about how hard the scandal will hit its coffers, but the figure has already been in the billions. Shortly after the diesel emissions problem surfaced, the company set aside the equivalent of $7.3 billion to cover the cost of the as-yet unknown fix, but VW Group CEO Matthias Müller admitted it wasn’t enough, according to Bloomberg. Later in the year, the automaker lined up $21 billion in loans for the anticipated expenses.

The diesel scandal’s costs will follow VW throughout 2016. While it’s repairing vehicles in Europe, neither the California Air Resources Board nor the Environmental Protection Agency accept the proposed repairsfor the 2.0- and 3.0-liter engines in the US. The continued engineering effort to devise a solution for the US can’t be inexpensive. A plan to buy back some vehicles would increase expenses even more, and there’s still the strong possibility of government fines.

Volkswagen delays the reporting of the Annual Results and the Annual General Meeting

Timing of report clarifying background of diesel emissions issue not affected
Before special items Volkswagen anticipates the Operating Result for the Group at the level of the prior year

Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft will set a new date for the publication of the annual accounts for fiscal year 2015 due to remaining open questions and the resulting valuation calculations relating to the diesel emissions issue. Consequently, new dates for the Annual Press Conference (previously planned for March 10, 2016) as well as the Annual General Meeting of shareholders, (previously planned for April 21, 2016) will be announced as soon as possible.

In this regard, Volkswagen will achieve the best possible transparent and reliable outcome for its shareholders and stakeholders.

Before special items Volkswagen anticipates the Operating Result for the Group at the level of the prior year within the expected range for fiscal year 2015.

The timing of the report clarifying the background and responsibilities connected to the diesel emission issue is not affected by this decision. Volkswagen is sticking to the timing and plans to publish the findings in the second half of April.

Car manufacturing in the UK has hit a 10-year high, with more vehicles exported than ever before, according to the industry’s trade group.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said almost 1.6 million cars were built in 2015, up 3.9% on 2014.

Nearly four out of five cars were exported, up by 2.7% on 2014, despite falls in sales to China and Russia.

But this was offset by economic recovery in Europe, where demand for UK-built cars increased by 11% in 2015.

SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes: “Despite export challenges in some key markets such as Russia and China, foreign demand for British-built cars has been strong, reaching record export levels in the past year.

“Europe is our biggest trading partner and the UK’s membership of the European Union is vital for the automotive sector in order to secure future growth and jobs.”

Production of the Mini rose by 12.4% last year to 201,000 and Toyota produced 190,000 cars, up 10.4%.

Vauxhall’s production rose by 9.5% to 85,000, and Jaguar Land Rover saw a 9% rise to 489,000.

However, Nissan recorded a 4.7% reduction, to 476,000, and Honda was down by 2%, to 119,000).
