Does the service negate your warranty!!

Witherspoon Audi and VW service - Edinburgh

AdvantagesThey hoovered the car first time round

DisadvantagesPoor diagnosis of problem, very rude

"A quick note on my recent experience with Witherspoon VW - a service centre for VW and Audi vehicles based in Sighthill Industrial Estate, Edinburgh. Around two weeks ago a put my Audi A4 in for a basic service.

Witherspoon charged around £150 for a 4 wheel alignment in addition to the service cost. ..." Read review
