Most new car owners know the pain of getting their new car serviced at the dealer “just to keep their warranty”. The fact is that some dealers can tend to make you believe that this is a MUST and they’ve been known to put considerable pressure on drivers.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission sees it a little differently.
The ACCC have confirmed that you can get your car serviced by someone other than the business or authorized agent of the business that sold you the car, without voiding the new car warranty. There are certain conditions though that must be met.
Conditions For Keeping New Car Warranty Valid
In order to keep your car warranty valid you are required to ensure servicing is carried out:
- By qualified staff
- According to the manufacturer’s specifications
- Using appropriate quality parts where required
Providing these conditions are met, you now have the power to shop smart and save money.
