How to Keep Your Car Warranty in Full Force
Many car owners secure a warranty and then give no more thought to the matter until they actually need to claim one of the benefits of that plan. Unfortunately, they may find at that point one or more provisions of the plan are no longer valid. The reason has to do with one simple fact: the owner failed to uphold his or her responsibilities as outlined in the terms of the Car Warranty contract.
Along with receiving certain benefits from the car warranty, the car owner is also making certain covenants in connection with that plan. Typically, this means making sure the car receives regular maintenance from an authorised source, and also pledging that only approved replacement parts will be used for repairs. If the car owner fails to follow the directives found in the body of the warranty plan, this can be a partial or even complete loss of benefits associated with certain covered events.
In order to make sure you do not accidentally invalidate the terms of your warranty, make it a point to read the terms and conditions from beginning to end. Make note of where you can have the car serviced and what needs to be done in order to obtain the approved parts when replacements are needed. By complying fully with the terms of the car warranty, you will have full protection should a covered event take place, a status that will save a great deal of money and also help you avoid a considerable amount of frustration.
