No worries, answers to your Australian car questions are here around the clock


Sadly, there are few Australian car companies left anymore, with most cars being imported from Europe and Asia. Brands that have survived are Holden, a General Motors subsidiary, and Toyota Australia. Several manufacturers make racecars, and Iveco and Mack Trucks Australia make semi-trucks.


Toyota and Holden are the most popular cars in Australia. As with cars in the United States, Australian cars’ most common problems come from the new technology that’s included in almost all new cars: Bluetooth connectivity.


Other common problems battery and electrics, issues with the interior and engine woes. When there is a problem, it can be difficult to diagnose on your own, and the situation is even more troublesome if the vehicle can’t be driven to the mechanic.


Experts on Justanswer.com are trained and certified in Australian car repair, and are available for consultation 24 hours a day. You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

Ask the Expert mechanics anything about your Australian car


The Experts on Justanswer.com have answered thousands of questions, including issues such as:


  • Where is the access to release the headlight assembly on the driver’s side of a 2004 E1800 SWNB van?
  • What’s causing my VZ Crewman to have intermittent misfire at idle and around 40-60 KMP, when no fault codes or warnings show up?
  • Why is the Smartshield lamp flashing when the key is removed, causing the horn and hazard lights to go off in the middle of the night, on my 2007 Fairmont Ghia?
  • My 2001 AU Falcon just dies while driving. First the radio turns off, then the engine cuts out and all the dash lights turn on. Why is this happening?
  • What is making the noise in the engine bay of a Toyota Hilux 4.0L V6?

When you speak with an Expert, it’s helpful to have specific information ready, including:


  • Make, model and year
  • Circumstances of the symptoms
