Default Warranty expiration

My wife'* GA is 33 miles from the end of its 36,000 mile warranty, we tried, but could not get a good time to have it inspected before next Wednesday. She wants to drive to Peoria tomorrow to shop, about 50 miles each way, I can't go because I have to wait for the AC guy, and she refuses to drive my car.

Will the dealership refuse to cover anything because the car is past 36k by a hundered or so miles?

yes, 36k is 36k they will more than likely refuse to cover anything. we had an issue with our old saturn right after the warranty was up and they refused to cover it.

get the manager involved. You will get it covered if it needs anything.

I'm guessing so if you don't insist that the car gets in for the last inspection. But, if they can't get it in that is not fair to you, the customer. Talk to the service manager, explain your situation and insist that you'd like to have a final check covered under warranty, and if they can't book it before the 3600 mile limit, then they better let you bring it in after. Make sense?

Talk to the manager, tell him about the issue and make an appointment. Also, called the manufacturers website and call the customer support office and have a talk with them too.

Me autoshop teacher had a Toyota 4Runner in which the O2 sensor went bad about 150km past warranty - in the middle of a US road trip. With the right amount of bitching and insisting, you can get it taken care of...

Tell your wife the situation once it goes past 36,000 miles. Not like your car is that much bigger. Then again....my G/F drove my GXP back from AC and almost sideswiped a gas pump.
