Whether your car is automatic or manual, regular maintenance of your transmission helps to keep your car driving smoothly. Automatic transmissions need regular service to ensure economical and maximum performance over the life of the car.

Diagnostic scanning equipment enables the auto mechanics at Cassar Automotive & Tyres in Hoppers Crossing to scan your car’s system to identify any transmission faults. If you notice that your car’s gear changes are less smooth than normal, then this is an indication that your transmission may need to be serviced.
