Volkswagen Tiguan 2018: Will servicing by a third party affect the warranty?

Asked by Russell

I'm thinking of buying a new VW Tiguan Allspace when it comes out in 2018 and have two 
questions. I have a good service company and would like them 
to service the vehicle. Would this affect the 3-year warranty offered by VW? I have just read that in the USA VW offers double the warranty to
 Australia for the same car i.e. 6 years/72,000 miles. Can we expect the same here?

You can take it anywhere to have it serviced without affecting the warranty, as long as it is done according the logbook, and done by a qualified mechanic. As for the warranty, right now there’s no pressure on VW to increase its warranty and I doubt it will until market pressure forces the company to do it.
