I have been told by the Main Dealer that they have to service my vehicle to keep my warranty valid?
This is incorrect and is used by Main dealers as a scare tactic, for some reason, There seems to be considerable confusion among car owners about the servicing requirements for their new car if they want the warranty to remain intact.
So we thought it might be a good idea to help put the record straight.
'Motorists have a choice and can legally take their vehicle to be serviced at any independent garage. Providing parts and fluids of Original Equipment (OE) quality have been used in accordance with manufacturer’s service schedules and you use a VAT registered Garage, you will NOT invalidate your warranty.'
At Ockendon Test Centre we only service your vehicle using OE Quality parts and are also VAT Registered!
