TIRE WARNING LIGHT

Don’t ignore you’re vehicle’s warning lights. Drop by and let us check it out. It may be okay, but you never know. Last week a 2010 Toyota Camry came in with the tire light on. We checked it and the right rear tire was low. We plugged the tire and replaced the tire pressure sensor and program.

Multi-Point Inspection

This week we had an 2008 Toyota Rav4 come in. The customer was taking a trip and wanted us to check out to insure a safe one! The customer had hit something which bent the muffler and tore a whole in it. Our MULTI-POINT INSPECTION REPORT showed the Brake fluid may need a flush due to mileage. ((157,000 miles). Coolant was also low, transmission fluid needed flushed (due to mileage) and front seal and axle seal was leaking. The UNDER THE HOOD INSPECTION showed it may need air/fuel system service do to mileage and the ignition parts needed a tune up. The Tire Inspection showed a leak in left and right front tires. SERVICES RECOMMENDED TO CUSTOMER: Install a Muffler, remove and replace R Differential Pinion Seal and replace the two front tire sensors. PARTS RECOMMENDED TO CUSTOMER: Muffler, pinion seal, TPMS Sensor.

We replaced the muffler, the right differential pinion seal, the two front tire sensors (TPMS) and the left rear axle seal.  They are certainly thankful they thought ahead and had their vehicle checked out!  Although no one likes spending money for repair work on anything……They will have a SAFER TRIP without the risk of having an accident and/or having to go to a repair shop (they know nothing about).  But, can now ENJOY THE TRIP!!!

Only New Car Dealers Can Service a Vehicle Under Warranty???

It’s a Myth That Only New Car Dealers Can Service A Vehicle Under Warranty

 

Mechanic at car garageTrue or false: Until your vehicle is out-of-warranty, it must be serviced by the new car dealer or the factory warranty will be void.

Although you may have answered “true,” the correct answer is “false.”

It’s the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain your new car warranty. Consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was done by a non-dealer.

According to the FTC, “It’s illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had routine maintenance or repairs performed by someone else. Routine maintenance often includes oil changes, tire rotations, belt replacement, fluid checks and flushes, new brake pads and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for companies to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty simply because you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”

When using a non-dealer, independent aftermarket shop to maintain your vehicle under warranty, the council strongly recommends keeping records and receipts for all maintenance that is done to the vehicle and adhering to scheduled maintenance requirements. If a warranty claim arises, these records will provide proof that maintenance has been performed in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations and requirements.

“It’s a common misconception that only car dealers can perform the routine maintenance and repairs on a newer vehicle that is under warranty,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The truth is that consumers can have routine repairs performed by their local independent repair shop or do the work themselves without affecting the warranty.

For more information from the FTC about auto warranties and routine maintenance, visit http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0138-auto-warranties-routine-maintenance.

The non-profit Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers. For a copy of the council’s Car Care Guide or for more information, visit www.carcare.org.
