In order to keep your vehicle warranty valid with your manufacturer's requirements, you may be required to have certain services performed as prescribed in your owner’s manual or as required in the warranty. Typical Manufacturer recommended maintenance might include oil changes, filter changes, inspections of hoses, belts, brakes, exhaust, etc.
How often is recommended maintenance required?
It is important that you read your warranty carefully. The manufacturer's warranty and/or your extended warranty may depend on having certain maintenance performed according to a pre-determined schedule. Keep all receipts as proof of maintenance performed. All work must be done exactly as mentioned in the manufacturer's maintenance schedule and documented efficiently.
Your car's service manual has a recommended maintenance schedule based on mileage. Review it before your visit to the shop. Make copies of the pages you need and keep them handy when you are dropping off your vehicle. The schedules are not only a great reference to ensure that necessary maintenance is performed, but also ensures that a shop is not providing services that are unneeded. This simple step can save you thousands of dollars over the life of your car.
The repair facility should provide a report detailing the results of any inspection and/or work that was completed.
Can any shop perform my Manufacturer Recommended Maintenance?
In most cases your non-warranty maintenance can be performed by either a dealership or your own mechanic. (Double-check your warranty to be sure!)
Many independent repair shops can perform these services at costs that are very competitive with dealerships. They have access to the same information that franchised dealers have about model-specific problems.
The Magnusen-Moss Act of 1975 prohibits new car dealers from implying or denying warranty service because routine scheduled maintenance was performed at an independent repair facility. (Magnusen-Moss Act (1975) Title 15 Chapter 50-Section 2301-2312
Use Maintenance to Establish a Relationship
It's highly recommended that the shop you use for your maintenance also be the same one you use for major repairs. This allows a relationship with the mechanic to grow and the mechanic to become familiar with your car and its history. When a major repair develops your mechanic will be better suited to remedy the problem.
