There really isn’t much more stressful than breaking down after a trip to the outback, or being stranded on the side of the road after you’ve hit wildlife. It can happen at any time of day or night, and due to its unexpectedness, it often seems to happen at exactly the worse times!

When you purchase a new vehicle, the manufacturer provides you with an extended warranty that covers the cost of repairs in case of parts failure. This warranty is only valid, however, if you have your vehicle regularly serviced by a certified mechanic, who records and stamps these services in your vehicle’s logbook.
Here at Redline Automotive, our fully certified mechanics can provide logbook services for all:
- Petrol vehicles
- Diesel vehicles
- Electric/Hybrid vehicles
When you’re planning on selling or otherwise transferring ownership of a vehicle 5 years old or older, you are legally required to first obtain a roadworthy certificate. The roadworthy certificate, issued by a licensed tester, ensures that your vehicle meets the minimum safety requirements needed to be driven on Northern Territory Roads. Redline Automotive is a licensed tester and we can happily provide you with roadworthy inspections as you need them.
If you’re thinking of buying a secondhand vehicle, we would recommend bringing it in for a pre-purchase inspection. The pre-purchase inspection ensures you avoid any nasty surprises and know exactly what you’re buying. Here at Redline Automotive, we can also provide you with an estimated cost of repairs for you to factor into your buying decision.
We can also provide safety inspections and Vehicle Identification Validity checks, so no matter what you need, we’ve got you covered!Contact us today!
Your brakes are the most important safety feature your vehicle has. While other safety systems mitigate the severity of an accident, your brakes can also act preventatively, and the condition of your brakes is often the deciding factor between an accident and an emergency stop.
Your brakes suffer a surprising amount of wear, routinely bringing over a tonne of metal to a complete stop, multiple times a day! For this reason, we agree with brake manufacturers that you should have your brakes checked at least once a year.
Here at Redline Automotive, our expert mechanics can provide the following brake services:
- Brake component replacement (pads, rotors and drums)
- Brake component machining
- Brake hose repairs
- Brake restorations
Steering and Suspension
Faults and flaws in your vehicle’s steering and suspension affect handling and ride comfort, causing play in the steering wheel and body lean through corners. Your suspension is also responsible for maximising the grip your tyres exert on the road surface, so a poor suspension will also increase your stopping distance.
Redline Automotive’s skilled technicians can help you with:
- Wheel alignments
- Shock absorbers, springs and struts
- Wheel balancing
- Bushing replacement
- Power steering repairs/replacement
- Lift kits and 4WD upgrades
Clutch & Transmission
As part of the machinery that transfers power from the engine to the wheels, the clutch and transmission are comprised of some of the most intricate and precise machinery in your vehicle. Due to their sophisticated nature, even small flaws can quickly escalate into very costly repairs.
If you have trouble changing gears, or notice a grinding noise when changing gears, or a burning smell coming from under the bonnet after a drive, you may have a problem with your vehicle’s clutch or transmission.
Here at Redline Automotive, our experienced mechanics can provide:
- Clutch repairs
- Automatic and manual transmission repairs and servicing
A malfunctioning cooling system causes a myriad of problems, from reduced fuel efficiency and power output to reduced engine lifespan as overheating and leaking coolant damages the engine.

Redline Automotive’s accomplished technicians can help you with:
- Radiator/heater repairs and replacement
- Head gaskets
- Coolant flush
- Thermostat check and replacement
Auto Electrical Services
As modern vehicles have increased in complexity, more and more functionality is being handled by the onboard auto electrical network. The network handles everything from playing music and monitoring fuel consumption to assisting with braking and gear changing, even putting your vehicle into limp mode pre-emptively if a serious problem is detected, to prevent lasting damage.
Here at Redline Automotive, our adept auto electricians can perform:
- Component replace/test (battery, alternator, etc.)
- Audio installations
- Lighting upgrades
The condition of your tyres is the deciding factor in handling and traction you exert on the road, especially during wet weather, where the treads of your tyres act as channels to divert water away from where the contact patches meet the road surface.
Here at Redline Automotive we supply and fit tyres from major brands for all makes and models of:
Responsible for transporting waste gases away from the engine bay, the exhaust contributes towards fuel efficiency and power output. If you’re looking for an increase in power, fuel economy, or just a more pleasant engine note, Redline Automotive can help you with:
- Exhaust repairs and replacement
- Exhaust modifications and upgrades
