Keeping your Warranty
People are often told that if anyone other than the main dealer works on your vehicle, it will “VOID” your “Factory Warranty”.
However, this is NOT true, there is a European law which states:
“Ensuring fair and effective competition is at the heart of Community Legislation, which has included sector-specific rules on competition in the automotive industry for many years. The current Block Exemption Regulation (EC) 1400/2002 is designed to protect competition and consumer choice in the repair sector”
“It states that suppliers may sell replacement parts directly into the aftermarket, and that authorised repairers may source quality parts from the supplier of their choice, including independent parts wholesalers. The use of such parts, as well as the servicing of a vehicle by an independent repairer, shall have no effect on the manufacturer’s warranty. Independent operators are entitled to non-discriminatory access to technical information, tools and training”
Source are the professionals!
This is why when we work on your car and install equipment into your car to make it sound better or to protect it from theft, we will NOT void your Factory Warranty so you can be sure that your car is in good hands with us and you and your car will not have any problems with the Main Dealers in the future.
