Question - I need to have some routine maintenance work done on my car. Will I void the warranty on my car if I have that work done somewhere other than the dealer?
Answer– No. Routine maintenance can be done at any reputable shop. The main thing you want to remember is to always have your owner’s manual stamped. That isn’t for the dealer’s sake, but for your own. You should always keep documentation of all work that has been done to your car. If and when you sell your car, you will want to have those records.
The only work that has to go back to the dealer for is warranty work. Warranty work has to be done by the dealer because after the repair the dealer will have to file a claim to be paid with the automotive manufacturer.
