I'm a new vehicle owner, can I take my new car to have a service at an independent garage?

17 June 2019 / customerservices@suttonz.com

The short answer is. Yes. Yes you can. 

It’s a question that comes up quite a lot in our garage as many people are advised by dealerships when they buy a new car that it should only be brought back to the main dealer as it may effect their warranty.

In fact, in a recent survey by Halfords, it was found that almost half of UK motorists that were questioned were unaware that they could go to an independent garage.

A ruling in October 2003, saw the EU introduce Block Exemption Regulation.

The legislation prevents a vehicle’s warranty being invalidated if serviced at a non-franchise dealer, provided manufacturer-approved parts are used.

To chat to us about the services we can offer please call us on 01323 769233 or email customerservices@suttonz.com. Our vehicle servicing starts at £99.95, we use OE parts and can provide interim and full services.
