Q: Warranty Maintenance on 2007 Hyundai Accent

If I don't take my car to a dealer to have the scheduled warranty maintenance done, is it still covered under the warranty? How do I prove that I've had the work done? I'm due for my 15,000 mile check-up, and they're quoting me $249. Definitely going to take it elsewhere, but I am concerned that if I end up having a warranty problem later they will use that against me and say I voided my warranty or something.

Keep all you records in chronological order, if you know you had work done somewhere but don't have the records go back and ask them to reprint your records. Make sure you read your owners manual and have records for at least all the maintenance required by Hyundia in the owner's manual according to their service tables. Keep receipts for oil changes with accurate mileage and dates.
You do not need to take your car to any particular dealer to maintain your warranty however, you do need to take it to a licensed workshop and have them check each item on the 15,000klm list then they should fill out the maintenance book and stamp it showing that you have had the work done. Shop around and get the best deal but be prepared. The hourly rate is a killer.
