Maintain your warranty with BEST servicing.
You do not have to use a dealer to service your new car.
Many people still think that they have to use the main dealer to service their car to keep up the warranty in the first few years and some dealers still tell their customers that this is the case, in fact they are breaking the law by telling you this.
In October 2003 `Block exemption regulations 1400/2002` came into force making it illegal for dealers to use this restrictive practice on any make of car. This was updated by Regulation 330/2010.
Now motorists can use any garage of their choice to service their car without invalidating the manufacturers warranty.
The only stipulations are that the service is in accordance with the vehicle Assemblers servicing schedules and is recorded. The parts used must be of an equivalent quality to the component used for the assembly of the vehicle… this does not mean that only parts obtained from the dealer must be used but they must be the same quality or better.
The benefit of this is Cheaper servicing at BEST Autocentres and your warranty intact on any make of car of any age.
