    • New Car Warranty

      Is your vehicle less than 3 years old or still under Manufacturer’s warranty?

      Are you frustrated with all the add-on service costs associated with a Dealer? 

      Is your dealer too far away?

      Then consider Pate and Vernooy as your Dealer alternative to servicing your car whilst under warranty.

      As we only use Genuine Parts and the very best Lubricants available, we can make certain that your New Vehicle Warranty is not affected.

      We follow Manufacturers service guidelines to the letter and what’s more – advise you if the vehicle has a defect which may be repaired under warranty.

      We also have all the latest & state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment which means we can read all your vehicles faults, reset service lights and in some cases program replacement computers to your vehicle.

      Its never been easier and more convenient to have your car serviced with the knowledge that your vehicle is receiving the very best attention!
