Auto Warranties, Routine Maintenance, and Repairs: Is Using the Dealer a Must?

 

Federal Trade CommissionWashington, D.C. – If you own a car, you know how important it is to keep up with routine maintenance and repairs. But can a dealer refuse to honor the warranty that came with your new car if someone else does the routine maintenance or repairs?

In fact, 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.

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay will attempt to rebound literally and figuratively from its first Ohio Valley Conference defeat when Tennessee Tech comes to town, 6:00pm, Thursday for an ESPNU telecast.

The Governors are hoping to bounce back after losing in overtime to Tennessee State, 76-74, Saturday in Nashville. It was a contest the Governors could not finish off after leading by seven with 1:18 remaining.

And rebounding, or lack thereof, proved to be a deciding factor in the defeat as TSU out-rebounded the Governors, 52-37, including 20 offensive grabs. A TSU offensive rebound tied the game in regulation and another offensive snatch helped give the Tigers a four-point overtime lead.
