First, I want to thank you for your speedy reply.
I would like to ask a follow up question.
First, the car is still under warranty for two more years. The dealership has stated that if the work is done at this shop, the warranty would be voided (for the engine at minimum). While the shop has said they will warranty their work, they will only provide 1 year of coverage.
Also, the shop is a fair distance from my home (approx. 25 km). This makes getting to the shop for repairs (if required) very inconvenient. On the other hand, my dealership is very close to home (less than 1 km). The proximity to home was one of the main reasons I bought this particular car in the first place.
Does this affect the situation at all?
Thank you very much Debra.
Your help is greatly appreciated
