Do I need to go to a main dealer to maintain the manufacturers warranty on my car?

Many car owners who have bought from new or own vehicles within a manufacturers warranty period believe that they must go to a main dealer to maintain the warranty. This is simply not true. The Office of Fair trading (OFT) reported that consumers no longer have to have their car serviced by a franchise dealer to comply with the manufacturers warranty.

From the OFT report:

“Servicing at franchise dealers is typically more expensive than servicing at independent garages, averaging £199 and £116 respectively without any apparent difference in the quality of service offered.”

Taken from the OFT bulletin 85/04.
