Say No to Dealer Prices - Know Your Rights Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
You don’t need to drive to the dealer in order to retain your factory warranty.
The FTC prohibits dealers from refusing to honor your warranty if you have routine maintenance or auto repair services performed at an independent auto repair shop instead. Don't pay more when you can get quality service at a fair price. Come to Hewlett House of Tires Tire Pros the next time you're in Hewlett, NY, Long Beach, NY, Valley Stream, NY, or a surrounding area to receive professional repairs without the dealer price.
To retain your factory warranty, your vehicle needs to receive routine maintenance at the intervals recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. Routine maintenance often involves simple services like an oil change or tire rotation to ensure your car is safe.
Retaining your vehicle's factory warranty is easier than ever today. Since 1975, you’ve been free to choose independent auto repair shops to fix and maintain your car without losing your warranty. We invite you to visit us without fear when you’re ready for any automotive services.
Using an aftermarket or recycled auto part will not void your factory warranty. Through the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the FTC makes it illegal for your dealer to void your warranty simply because you're using an aftermarket part. The only time a dealer will ever have a case is if the part itself was defective or incorrectly installed. In such cases, the burden of proof is on the dealer.
