Seat Garage Oldham

Oldham Town Hall

If you are in the Oldham area looking to have your Seat serviced by professionals with experience combined with affordability you should consider an independent Seat Garage in Oldham. There are many garages to choose from for excellent quality and experience at a much lower cost than you will find at the main dealer.

There are several misconceptions as to why people choose to go to the Seat main dealer rather than use an independent garage including; the warranty, to maintain full value when selling the vehicle and in order to potentially not have to worry about unnecessary work being performed on the car. In some cases, going to the main dealer might not be the best alternative so we’ll look at some leading reasons why people do not shop around for the best car service for them.

Your Seat Warranty

Car Warranty

Legally, a new vehicle must have a two-year warranty. The warranty begins with the first registration and continues even if the car is sold within the two-year period. Many people worry if they go to an independent garage that their warranty will be void. This is just not true. A manufacturer can not force a car owner to use their dealerships. That said, a manufacturer may have certain specifications regarding when the car should be serviced and how the service will be carried out during the warranty period.

One of these conditions is the time period when your car must be serviced while under warranty. You must ensure this will be done in accordance with the schedule you have been provided when purchasing the vehicle. They also require you to keep a service record and only use original parts. As long as you meet their conditions, you can have your car serviced at any Seat garage in Oldham without affecting the warranty. A good reliable garage will use original parts and consumables, update your service record, ensure all bills and receipts are kept and perform all the manufacturer’s specified procedures.

Quality Of Garage Service

The quality of service is also a big concern with owners who have relatively new cars. The quality of spare parts and the skills of the mechanics working on your vehicle are very important. There is a non-proven belief that an independent garage is cheaper because they are not as skilled as a dealership, they cut corners and they use cheaper parts. Once again, not true! If you are using a garage you have confidence in, it should not be an issue.

If you choose to use an independent Seat specialist in Oldham, you will not have to worry about the quality of service. As a matter of fact, they hire mechanics that have been trained by the manufacturer or have worked at a dealership in the past. Most of these mechanics have years of experience and are very familiar with the standards and procedures to give your vehicle a great service. In many cases, you might find the garage offers two different services to meet your needs. One is for cars still under warranty and the other for all other vehicles. Whichever service you need, you can rest assured you will get comprehensive checks and the very best quality repairs and parts.

Your Seat Resale Value

If you use an official dealership to service your vehicle, you can guarantee it will help to keep the value of your car. However, any potential buyer will be more concerned as to whether you have had the vehicle serviced in the correct time or mileage as specified by the manufacturer.

Any damage caused by an accident or collision or if you have had any major repairs are also points of interest. If you use a reputable independent garage for services and repairs, you can count on not losing value on resale. Keep in mind, as your car ages, the service history will become less important, especially if your car is 5 years or older.


The term Back Street Garage conjures up some unpleasant thoughts. If you are considering using one of these establishments, you could experience inflated bills, unnecessary work performed on your car and in some cases, the vehicle leaving the garage in a worse condition than when it came in.
