We at Autotech Performance understand that not all our customers have experience of working within the Motor Trade and therefore what we in the trade take for granted as “common knowledge”, the same cannot be said for the layperson.
This section is aimed to trying to provide you with some answers to those “common knowledge” aspects and dispel any of those “Myths” that maybe out there.
Myth: “My vehicle is on lease so I can only use the main dealer for servicing….”
No, Not Necessarily, Take advice from the finance company supplying the car.
Because of a European directive called block exemptions, we can service and maintain your car from New, following manufacturers guide lines and service schedules using Original equipment manufacturer parts (OEM). This will keep your vehicles warranty intact and we update the online manufacturers service database keeping your factory service up to date.
Myth: “Independent garages don’t use original parts….”
Where we cant speak for other independants, here at Autotech Performance we only use Original equipment parts. We have a strong belief in “only the best is good enough” and yet this doesn’t mean it can be the most expensive.
Myth: “My vehicle needs warranty work so I have to use the main dealer….”
Whilst your vehicle is under a manufacturers warranty it will need to go to the relative Franchised dealer (Whilst being serviced by ourselves with the European block exemption in place warranty still stands)
The used vehicle market comes with an aftermarket warrany/insurance policy, these we can deal with for you from the quotations through to the fix
Myth: “Only the main dealer can update the electronic service book….”
This is a myth, here at Autotech Performance we have access to the individual Manufacturers Global service databases where we will update and keep your service history up to date
Myth: “Independent garages don’t give warranties for their work….”
Here at Autotech Performance we guarantee both our Labour & Parts. Most Parts these days carry a 1 to 3 year warranty and batteries 3 to 5 year warranty
