Will missing a service due to coronavirus invalidate my car's warranty?

My Skoda Karoq is due it's first year service in mid April. I had booked it in for a service on 30 March but, understandably, due to the Coronavirus, the garage is closed for services etc. If the service is delayed for a few months (looking on the bright side), will this affect the manufacturer's warranty?

Email your local Skoda dealer and log this issue with them. It shouldn't cause any problems with the vehicle's warranty, but the key thing is to stay in touch with the dealer and keep them notified. For more details see the Skoda entry here: www.honestjohn.co.uk/news/coronavirus/2020-03/coro...y
