Independent car servicing

When you buy a new car you want to keep it looking and running like new for as long as possible. Thankfully, all new cars will come with some form of manufacturer’s warranty to cover you for any problems with the vehicle for a set period or mileage. However, you do not have to complete your log book servicing at the dealer where you purchased your vehicle.
So are there any downsides to using an independent business to service your vehicle? You may already be taking your car back to the dealer because you believe they are the only ones who can keep your warranty valid. This is completely untrue. You only have to make sure your independent automotive repair shop offers full manufacturers scheduled servicing for your make and model.
