We cannot overstate the importance of transmission services. For every vehicle, irrespective of the model or make, manual or automatic transmission, changing gears should be smooth and effortless. Any difficulty in changing gears is a sign of trouble with the transmission system and requires immediate attention. Failure to get it checked will lead to deteriorating performance and even unexpected breakdowns on the road.

Some key benefits of getting transmission auto repair services are:

  • Smooth gear changes and improved ride quality

  • Prevents transmission and gearbox failure

  • Avoid costly repairs

  • Averts getting stranded on the road

  • Increases lifespan of transmission

  • Enhances safety

If you own a Mercedes-Benz, you should get the transmission serviced every 20,000 kilometres or 12 months, whichever is earlier. You should get the transmission replaced after roughly 7 years or 1,50,000-200,000 kilometres, whichever is earlier. Other brands will have similar instructions in the logbook. Consult your vehicle’s logbook to ensure that all scheduled servicing has been done.

They are definitely Mercedes enthusiasts and go out of their way to try and help solve any mechanical issues. Naya is easy to contact and staff are very helpful. Call me old-fashioned but I like to have a personal relationship with people who work on my car.

The Manager, Daya, is one of the most highly experienced Mercedes mechanics in Melbourne, and is extremely reasonable with his charges. We have had Mercs in the family for over 50 years, and he has been taking care of our cars for most of that time. Neither my nor my extended family will send their Mercs anywhere else. Daya is the former head of the service division of one of Melbourne's largest dealers. The mechanics at Eastern Star are serious Mercedes specialists. The negative reviews here are INCORRECT. I have spoken to Easter Star about them, and I'm totally flabbergasted at how badly these customers misinterpreted the company's advice on faults of their cars.
