1. My car is only ONE year old and still has its manufacturer warranty (5 Year Warranty), will servicing it with Cathal Duffy Limited affect the warranty and possibly void it?

Your warranty is protected at all times with Cathal Duffy Limited. Genuine parts are used of OE (Original Equipment) standard. This ensures that your warranty is protected and always valid with the manufacturer.

So no matter what car or van you drive your manufacturer's warranty is valid when using Cathal Duffy Limited.
