A new video produced by the Car Care Council in conjunction with AutoNetTV Media (ANTV) focuses on consumers’ rights to have their vehicles serviced at any automotive service and repair business they choose without affecting the warranty, according to a press release.

“It’s a common misconception that only car dealers can perform the routine maintenance and repairs on a newer vehicle that is under warranty,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “This new video outlines the truth about vehicle warranties and assures consumers that they can have routine repairs performed by their local independent repair shop or do the work themselves without affecting the warranty.”

The video explains that it is the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain new car warranties and that consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was performed by a non-dealer, the release stated.
