Maintaining a Vehicle After the Warranty Expires

The Problem: The new car warranty on your vehicle has expired. You probably received numerous warnings in the mail from your dealer and the company supplying the vehicle warranty coverage. However, a lot of people choose to let the vehicle warranty coverage expire because (1) warranties can be expensive or  (2) they tell themselves the car has run so well to date that expense of warranty coverage is really not necessary. Unfortunately most car owners do not understand that regular auto maintenance becomes even more crucial when the warranty expires. Without coverage, you will pay out of your own pocket for all parts and labor expenses if your car breaks down. 

The Solution: You are now supplying your own "warranty coverage" and if you don’t want repair expenses to get out of control, then it’s important to keep your car well maintained with regular preventive maintenance.
