Will my warranty be voided for not taking my vehicle to the dealership for servicing?

Absolutely not.

Dealers depend on after-market products like servicing and parts to prop up their profit margins and will be persuasive in trying to convince you to retain their services.

But you do have options. Servicing or repairing your car at the Peninsula Diesel Repairs will not impact your warranty, provided the mechanic is suitably qualified and that he uses quality parts- such as Peninsula Diesel Repairs. We will perform logbook services and stamp your logbook to reflect they have been completed. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says “a manufacturer’s warranty is a promise to the consumer that the vehicle will be free from defects for a certain period of time”. While a manufacturer can have certain requirements in its warranty terms – such as ensuring any servicing is carried out by qualified staff, according to the manufacturer’s specification, and that appropriate quality parts are used where required – it can’t require you to service your vehicle through an authorised dealer to keep your warranty intact. “Provided you service the vehicle in accordance with any such requirements, the warranty will remain valid. If the manufacturer’s warranty states that the vehicle can only be serviced by an authorised dealer, this may raise concerns under the Competition and Consumer Act,” the ACCC has said in written guidance to the automotive industry. You can read more here information by clicking here
