Many people feel that if they buy a new car, it has to be serviced at the dealership or their warranty will be void. Not true. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, a Federal law enacted in 1979, protects consumers against such requirements.
A manufacturer can not require any particular product or service unless it is being given away or provided free of charge.
For example, if you buy a car and it has a 3-year, 36,000 mile manufacturer’s warranty. You can have that car maintained anywhere you’d like.
Now, more and more, car companies are “throwing” in free routine maintenance. This could mean oil changes and tire rotations or everything besides brakes and tires. Sometimes they offer “free” routine maintenance when you purchase an extended warranty.
Let’s say your “free” routine maintenance includes oil changes and tire rotations. They figure, since everyone is busy, you’ll bring your car in for the routine maintenance and have other items addressed (brakes, filters…) at the same time. Who wants bring their car in for service more times than they need to?
