How You Care For Your Car Is Important
Not all car owners are aware that a vehicle´s maintenance directly affects the provisions of the Car Warranty, but there is a direct link and it should be understood and observed. Simply put, if you want to get the most from your car warranty, regular maintenance at the right garage is crucial. Here´s why.
Many car warranty terms state that if a part is in need of repair, it should not have been subjected to excessive amounts of wear and tear in the first place. Often, this can be avoided if the car has been maintained regularly through servicing at an approved garage. The service record will indicate that there were no obvious signs of abuse when the oil or filters were changed. As a result, the chances of the warranty being declared null and void are minimised, and you can look forward to spending a lot less on the upkeep of your vehicle.
In addition, the full extent of the car warranty may require only having the vehicle serviced at authorised garages. Make sure you know this is the case before taking on the warranty. Should you choose to not comply with this requirement, the coverage may be limited or be void altogether. This would leave you having to pay for replacement parts out of your own pocket. Take the time to understand what you must do in the way of maintenance in order to get the most from your car warranty, and the chances of enjoying your car for many years will increase significantly.
