With a reputation for performance and style, European cars are a popular choice for Australian car lovers. For well-known brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Renault and Fiat, it is the combination of style and performance that have earned a reputation of excellence amongst these imported vehicles.

Outclassing many other models, European cars boast the latest in assistive technology and host cutting-edge safety features whilst operating with a level of excellence that is not often seen in other vehicles.

The one downside to driving a European car, is that it can be significantly harder to find a quality European car service than it is for more common cars. 

Finding a qualified European car specialist, such as Great Lakes Auto, is vital to the performance and longevity of your high-quality car.

Why Do I Need a European Car Mechanic?

Many car servicing garages lack the equipment and experience to conduct a European car service. This is due to the fact that European models have special needs that often differ from other car brands, which include:


As technology advances, so too has the auto electrical technology in vehicles, with European models such as the Mercedes Benz ahead of the curve.

Being ahead of the curve means boasting new features yet to be seen in common car brands, with many European brands featuring cutting-edge parking assist technology, comprehensive entertainment systems and automated driving features.

At Great Lakes Auto, we know these extra features require specialised servicing and parts that cannot be substituted for cheap alternatives without compromising the quality of the vehicle.

The state-of-the-art technology prevalent in European cars differs from that of commonly used cars, and not every servicing professional is equipped with expertise to conduct these services.

Car Parts

European car models maintain their reputation for quality and safety by only accepting parts specific to that model. Swapping these parts out for other, cheaper alternatives should never be an option, and therefore requires a qualified European car specialist to conduct the service correctly. 

The high-quality of your Alfa Romeo car must be maintained by a mechanic professional who has the right tools and components for the job.

The Expertise

It makes little sense for a mechanic to perform a BMW car service without the proper level of training required to service BMW vehicles.

Each imported car model is different from the next, which requires a level of knowledge and expertise that is specific to that make and model for accurate servicing.

At Great Lakes Auto, we understand there is no single global standard of car make and model. This means that there are an array of differences between models, and where there are simple methods of servicing for common cars, we know there is a long list of changes when it comes to servicing European models. 

For example, when conducting a Renault service, a mechanic must have distinct skills that can’t be gained by years of work on Japanese models. It is therefore essential that your car is serviced by a serviceman with the proper training and experience.

For those looking for a European car mechanic who respects the true value of these luxury vehicles, Great Lakes Auto are the specialists for you. 

Our extensively trained and passionate mechanics are well-versed in servicing all European makes and models. We have the right tools and knowledge to get the job done right. We take that little bit of extra care to ensure you’re getting the best from your European car.

Whether you’re after an Audi car service, a visit to a qualified BMW mechanic, or looking for European car servicing that won’t break the bank, we’re here to help.
