Steve - you must use a very understanding dealership. You use phrases like "They can't refuse warranty service" and "All you need to do is document" very casually. A dealer can refuse to do warranty work if you cannot meet their definition of documentation of the contractually required maintenance. If you come in with a paper napkin with some dates and numbers on it and demand warranty work citing this napkin as proof that you have the oil changed on schedule, you will be greeted with laughter. The dealer might be glad to do the work, if you pay for it! Steve McRoberts wrote: > They can't refuse warranty service because it wasn't done by authorized > shop.
