FAQ’sFrequently Asked Questions
My Car is under warranty, can I still take it to you?
Yes of course you can. European law, allows us to carry out all your annual service and maintenance requirements without invalidating your warranty. Should any major faults occur during this time simply take it to the nearest franchised dealer and they will carry out the repair free of charge under the terms and conditions of your existing warranty.
My new car has a service package from the main dealer, can you still save me money?
Yes. Dealer service packages tend to only cover the basic service items and don’t include items such as brakes, tyres, wiper blades etc… any additional work carried out will be chargeable…at main dealer rates. We advise you to check what is free and save money by having any extra work carried out by ourselves.
Can you update my service history and reset the service light?

At Central Audi & VW we are able to stamp your service book or update your records digitally which, should you ever sell your vehicle, confirms to the new owner that services have been carried out by a specialist to exact manufacturer criteria. The service indicator is reset to the appropriate interval.
