Factory warranties often come inundated with fine print particularities, leaving car owners overwhelmed and fearful of having car repair done elsewhere. However, to the relief of many San Antonio drivers, the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act ensures the ability of car owners to take their vehicle to an independent auto shop and have aftermarket installations without the risking the validity of their original factory warranty.
Warranty (3 years, 30,000 miles)
Mechanic cannot deliver “factory warranty repairs,” meaning any repair that is due to faulty auto parts from your original auto manufacturer. You must refer to your dealership for car repair service. Mechanic can perform auto inspection, vehicle maintenance, and aftermarket additions to your vehicle, as well as non-warranty repairs.
Extended Warranty (after 30,000 miles)
This warranty can only be bought from the vehicle’s original manufacturer, requiring that car owners have their vehicle repairs done at the dealership. However, Mechanic can perform auto inspection, vehicle maintenance, and aftermarket additions to your vehicle, as well as non-warranty repairs.
Aftermarket Warranty (after 30,000 miles)
This type of warranty is sold by an independent company and services select makes and models. It typically covers transmission, engine, and electrical repair–the company stipulates what will and will not be covered in the warranty. You may bring your vehicle to our Mechanic shop and have our staff contact the aftermarket company to make a claim on the repair.
