Your Vehicle's Warranty Explained In New Car Care Council Video




A new video produced by the Car Care Council in conjunction with AutoNetTV Media (ANTV) focuses on consumers' rights to have their vehicles serviced at any automotive service and repair business they choose without affecting the warranty.



"It's a common misconception that only car dealers can perform the routine maintenance and repairs on a newer vehicle that is under warranty," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "This new video outlines the truth about vehicle warranties and assures consumers that they can have routine repairs performed by their local independent repair shop or do the work themselves without affecting the warranty."



The video explains that it is the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain new car warranties and that consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was performed by a non-dealer.

Andersen's Foreign Car Service is the only place we take our cars for service. We have owned four Volvo cars and two Audi cars over the past 20 years and Kurt and his team have take great care of us. Small, family owned business with personal attention. You will get honest answers from the people who actually are working on your vehicle and are certified technicians. No "service advisors" who will give you corporate style answers. I highly recommend Andersen's to anyone with automotive mechanical service needs!

I was visiting family in Conifer and the antifreeze reservoir to my Volvo cracked and was leaking. There was no garage in Conifer that would service my C-70. After researching garages I came across Anderson's web page and saw that they service Volvo. When I called them they indicated to me that the first available appointment was over a week out. I initially spoke with Ryan and explained that I was visiting family and was to drive back to Chicago in a few days. He said he would talk to a manager and get back with me. When he called back he said that they would work on my car but it may take a couple of days. I said that would be fine as I just needed the car by Friday. I was impressed by the service because the car was done one day after it was towed to the shop. When I came in I talked to Kurt, like everything else this was also a pleasant experience. He said they they looked over the car and other then the repair everything else was fine. They also replaced the battery in the key fob which was also low. I want to say thank you to everyone at the shop. It’s a stressful experience then your car needs a repair after driving and you are a 1000 miles from home. I will definitely use them again if needed when in the Denver area. This is a shop I would recommend to anyone for their foreign car service. They were professional, courteous, skilled and trustworthy. I wish them continues success because they deserve it!
