Today’s Query: Is my warranty voided by taking my car to an independent auto shop?

Many people think that you must go to the dealership’s repair shop to keep their warranty to be valid. Unless explicitly expressed in your warranty, servicing your vehicle at a different repair shop shouldn’t void your warranty. Usually, things that negate the warranties are the length of ownership, driven miles, installing aftermarket modifications, damage, and vehicle misuse. When purchasing a car, make sure to go over the specifications and read the warranty’s fine print.
