NEW CAR SERVICE & REPAIR - WARRANTY
Do I have
to use the dealer for repairs and maintenance to keep my warranty in
No. An independent
mechanic can do routine maintenance and repairs on your new vehicle.
In fact, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which is enforced by the
FTC, makes it illegal for manufactures or dealers to claim that your
warranty is void or to deny coverage under your warranty simply
because someone other than the dealer did the work.
using 'aftermarket' or recycled parts void my warranty?
No. An 'aftermarket' part
is a part made by a company other than the vehicle manufacturer or
the original equipment manufacturer. A 'recycled' part is a part
that was made for and installed in a new vehicle by the manufacturer
or the original equipment manufacturer, and later removed from the
vehicle and made available for resale or reuse. Simply using an
aftermarket or recycled part does not void your warranty.
