Using Auto Warranty to Get Free Repairs You Are Entitled to Receive
HOW IT WORKS
Consider this scenario:
Perhaps the trouble is traced to
a malfunctioning electronic engine control module or oxygen sensor, which
are emissions control system parts. If so, the repair falls under the
provisions of the emissions control systems warranty. You won't have to
pay a penny for the repair, which incidentally would have cost you over
$500. The repair also stops the bucking.
According to the Clean Air Act,
warranty work must be done by a "representative of the manufacturer"
(that's a dealer) free of charge. Under the emissions control systems
warranty, the full cost of troubleshooting and making a repair is to be
assumed by the manufacturer. The car owner doesn't have to pay a penny
unless the emissions test shows that the car is not emitting pollutants
in excess of federal or state law.
Another advantage of having a dealer check the problem is that a service department can usually re-create the conditions that existed when the driveability problem occured, such as at a particular speed or engine temperature. Although state and municipal vehicle inspection stations usually don't charge for testing, it is difficult for them to re-create conditions. Independent mechanics may be able to do so, but they will probably charge to do the test, whether or not the cause of the problem turns out to be an emissions systems defect.
If testing is done by a state or
municipal inspection station or an independent mechanic and your car fails
the emissions test, be sure to get a copy of the results plus an explanation
of why it failed. You will need this in order to have the free repair
made by a dealer.
