About Us

Andrew at Powertune 4x4

Powertune 4x4 & Car Service Centre, a local family owned business, has been serving the Ipswich region since 1968. Powertune was established in Yamanto by Trevor Kucks who learnt his trade in the RAAF so he could have a career in Motor Racing. After being discharged from the RAAF the workshop was opened with a focus on Dyno Tuning and race engines and there was also strong links to the racing division of Ford. But the general mechanical repairs and servicing for the local Ipswich residents was not forgotten either.

Andrew started his apprenticeship in a local family owned business and has worked in dealerships. He has also spent some time as a teacher of Automotive at the local TAFE before taking over the business in 2002.

Moving ahead to the present time Andrew and his team of dedicated technicians have a large number of years of experience in the Motor Industry.

We service and repair ALL MAKES OF CARS, 4WD’s, light commercial vehicles, small buses, trailers, camp trailers, boat trailers and caravans. We also provide a 4WD Accessories fitting service and are the local Ironman 4x4 dealer. Our 4 Wheel Dyno provides us with state of the art diagnostic capabilities making it more accurate to determine problems with vehicles and tuning safely. We are able to provide a drop off and pick up service within the local area.

We have a large workshop for our trained mechanics and auto electrician to use, with seven hoists, 4 wheel dyno, wheel aligner, air conditioning, brake lathe, injector servicing machine and electronic diagnosis capabilities including our Platetronic testing bay. We have a showroom to display our 4WD accessories with a large range to choose from. We have extensive access to information on all makes and models of vehicles. We offer full mechanical servicing and repairs as well as a full 4WD fitting service for all vehicles. Our focus is on increasing the reliability, functionality and versatility of your vehicle irrespective of how you use it.

You will be honestly cared for by Andrew and his team who all have a passion for cars and enjoy nothing more than spending their down time caravaning, camping, 4WDriving or just exploring in their vehicles. With lots of experience in the motor industry we will ensure your vehicle is in the best hands.
