The guidelines indicate that when purchasing a new vehicle that the consumer will be allowed to choose where they would like to purchase value-added products such as service and maintenance plans through independent approved service providers in the Automotive Aftermarket.
The authorized repair and servicing of vehicles will be allowed using both original parts from the manufacturer but also matching quality products provided by the Automotive Aftermarket “replacement parts”. This means that Authorised repairers will be able to purchase products from authorised parts suppliers or independent parts suppliers. Vehicle owners will be able to use any repair shop to perform work, during the warranty period, all the while retaining the warranty.
Vehicle manufacturers may not make warranties conditional on the repair and servicing of a motor vehicle within their network or the use of their own branded spare parts. Vehicle manufacturers are required to make available to authorized and independent repairers’ technical information and training required to service and repair motor vehicles.
