Did you know you don't necessarily have to go back to your new car dealer to have your logbook services carried out? Consumers are sometimes confused about the differences between the consumer guarantees, warranties against defects and extended warranties. This tends to happen when dealers make broad statements that consumers will 'void their warranties' or similar if they go to an independent repairer. The ACCC states that, provided the appropriate parts and components are being utilised, you can take your vehicle to any mechanic for servicing and maintain your factory warranty. Warranty against defects on a motor vehicle may require the consumer to ensure any servicing is carried out by qualified staff, according to the manufacturer's specification and using appropriate quality parts where required.
Next time your vehicle is due for a service, the team at Hornsby Trucks can assess, repair and service your vehicle using only quality components that meet manufacturer standards, and ensure that you keep your new car warranty.
