It is a guide for what should be serviced, replaced or inspected on your vehicle, how often and when.
A log book is also a record of how well your car has been maintained - and a great tool for when it's time to sell - By having followed the log book guidelines it means your car is well maintained and it will often mean you'll get a better price.

Do I have to only go to the Dealership who sold me my new car in order to get a Log book Service or to maintain my New Car Warranty ?
Often, the new car dealerships will tell you that by having your car serviced somewhere other than at their service centre will void your warranty. This is untrue. (Unless you have purchased an extended warranty which has a clause built in) You must however, ensure that where you have your car serviced employs fully qualified technicians, and that the services they perform meet the manufacturer's specifications and that quality parts are used.
