Do I have to go to a dealer for scheduled maintenance under the warranty?

Question: I want to make sure I’m covered under my car manufacturer’s warranty. Do I have to go to the dealer for scheduled maintenance to be covered?

Answer: Not necessarily. Most automobile warranties require that you comply with the factory-recommended maintenance schedule to keep the warranty valid. However, depending on the terms of the warranty, you do not always have to go to the dealers to get the maintenance work done.
