Having problems with your 2009 Scion tC ?
Warranty question. This is probably a stupid question but here it is. I know in order to get warranty work done you must have kept up with scheduled maitenence. Is there a certain window you have to get maintanence done or does it have to be done exactly on the mile. For example if serv ice is set at 5,000 miles and you bring it in at 5,050 miles would they consider that breach of warranty or is there a certain window there?I know dealers can have a tendency to find any reason to void a warranty
Not having the maintenance done also does not automatically void any warranty. For example, if you blow the catalytic converter, and never had any tune ups done, they could try to get out of replacing the convertor. But if for example a wheel bearing went out, they could not get out of doing that under warranty, because there is no maintenance that could have prevented it.
It would be almost impossible for everyone to get their maintenance done on the mile.The main thing is that it is done.We had some come in with 1 or 2 hundred over and this did not void any warranty.And it does not have to be done at the dealership.Just make sure and keep the receipts to show that you are doing the maintenance.The only thing that helps when you have it done at the dealership is when you go over the warranty miles they will go to bat for you and get repairs done under warranty because you were a good customer.This is the way we took care of our customers at the dealership I worked at.The only thing is not all dealerships are the same.I hope this helps answer your question about warranty.Good luck.
