Mythbusting VAG Service Lies

In the realm of vehicle maintenance, myths and misconceptions abound and Volkswagen Audi Group (VAG) vehicles are no exception. As a reputable provider of premium servicing at a non-premium price for over 25 years, Volksmaster has seen its fair share of misconceptions about servicing and repairs for VAG vehicles.

In this article, we aim to debunk some of the most common myths surrounding VAG maintenance, providing clarity and peace of mind to our customers.

Myth 1: You Must Service Your VAG Vehicle Only at Dealerships

One of the most prevalent myths surrounding VAG maintenance is the belief that you must service your vehicle exclusively at dealerships to maintain its warranty and ensure quality service.

This is simply not true. European legislation, known as the Block Exemption Regulation, grants consumers the freedom to choose where they have their vehicle serviced without voiding the manufacturer’s warranty. At Volksmaster, we adhere to manufacturer specifications and use genuine parts, ensuring that your warranty remains intact while providing top-notch service at a lower cost.

Myth 2: Independent Garages Lack the Expertise and Equipment for VAG Maintenance

Another common misconception is that independent garages lack the expertise and specialised equipment required for servicing and repairing VAG vehicles. As a family-run business with 4 branches, Volksmaster prides itself on its team of highly skilled technicians who undergo regular training to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in VAG technology. Training is undertaken directly with VAG, that’s right, we receive the same training that the main deaers technicians receive.

Additionally, our workshops are equipped with the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and equipment, allowing us to diagnose and resolve issues with precision and efficiency.

Myth 3: Premium Servicing Comes at a Premium Price

Premium Value VAG Servicing

Contrary to popular belief, premium servicing for VAG vehicles doesn’t have to come with a premium price tag. At Volksmaster, we believe in offering quality service at a fair and transparent price. Our company motto is “Confidence in Quality”.

Our commitment to providing premium servicing at a non-premium price is evident in everything we do, from our competitive pricing to our meticulous attention to detail. We understand the value of your investment and strive to deliver the best possible service without breaking the bank.

Myth 4: Regular Maintenance Isn’t Necessary for VAG Vehicles

Some VAG owners may believe that their vehicles are so well-built that regular maintenance isn’t necessary. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Regular servicing is essential for ensuring the longevity and performance of your VAG vehicle.

From oil changes to brake inspections, routine maintenance helps prevent potential costly repairs further down the line and keeps your vehicle running smoothly for years to come. At Volksmaster, we recommend following the manufacturer’s recommended service schedule to keep your vehicle in optimal condition.

Myth 5: Aftermarket Parts Are Just as Good as Genuine Parts

While aftermarket parts may be cheaper upfront, they often lack the quality and reliability of genuine parts. Genuine parts are designed specifically for your VAG vehicle and undergo rigorous testing to ensure compatibility and performance.

At Volksmaster, we use only genuine parts in our servicing and repairs, providing you with peace of mind and confidence in the quality of our work. Genuine parts may come at a slightly higher price, but the investment is well worth it for the long-term reliability and performance of your vehicle.

Myth 6: DIY Maintenance Is Sufficient for VAG Vehicles

While DIY maintenance can be suitable for simple tasks like changing wiper blades or topping up fluids, it’s not sufficient for more complex servicing and repairs required by VAG vehicles. Modern vehicles are equipped with sophisticated technology and systems that require specialised knowledge and equipment to diagnose and repair properly.

Attempting DIY maintenance on your VAG vehicle could lead to costly mistakes and potentially void your warranty. Trusting the experts at Volksmaster ensures that your vehicle receives the professional care it deserves.
