Did you know?
  • You are not required to take your vehicle to the dealer in order to maintain your warranty.
  • A warranty cannot require the use of a specific brand of replacement parts offered by your selling dealer.

No matter the brand of vehicle you drive - foreign or domestic - we can help protect you and your vehicle's warranty. By using quality CARQUEST Auto Parts and service, our skilled technicians can perform all of your vehicle's maintenance and repairs without voiding your warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions By Owners Of New Or Leased Vehicles

Q

Do I have to use the manufacturer's original equipment parts to keep my warranty valid?


A

Legally, automakers cannot specify which parts are used to complete your vehicle's service. You may use any brand-name quality parts such as CARQUEST Auto Parts to replace fan belts, hoses, brakes, exhaust or chassis parts and more.


Q

What do I have to do to keep my car or truck's warranty in effect?


A

Make sure your vehicle is serviced at the intervals specified in your owner's manual or warranty booklet and keep clear records of your vehicle's maintenance. Be sure to have the date, parts installed, vehicle identification number and mileage recorded on the invoice. Keep these receipts in a safe place. If you have a service log in your owner's manual or warranty booklet, use it.


Q

My car is a leased vehicle. Am I responsible for maintenance?


A

Even if you lease a vehicle you are responsible for all maintenance and repairs to keep the vehicle in good working order as outlined in the owner's manual.


Q

What parts should be replaced and at what intervals should these services be performed?


A

Check your owner's manual. It will give you all of the information you need regarding specific parts and service intervals. Make sure to read it thoroughly and note any exceptions or severe service notations. Warranties are there to protect the consumer, but you must follow the requirements.


Q

What if my new car needs repairs other than regularly scheduled maintenance such as a brake job or other repairs? Do I have to return to the dealer for these repairs? What if these repairs are covered under my warranty?


A

The choice of where to have your car serviced and repaired is yours. However, you will probably have to take the car back to the dealer for any repairs covered under warranty. Thoroughly check your warranty to be certain which repairs are covered.


Q

How does the quality of aftermarket parts compare with original equipment parts?


A

Some are manufactured by the same supplier and may even be warranted longer than original equipment parts. Aftermarket parts supplied by CARQUEST meet or exceed manufacturers' specifications.


Q

If I do have a warranty-related problem with a dealership, what rights do I have?


A

If you have a problem, contact the customer service department of the car manufacturer and ask for assistance. They are concerned with customer satisfaction and may be able to help.



What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    Great place if you need auto service. Chris and Beaver are top notch.

  • reviewicon

    Great place to get your automobile serviced.

  • reviewicon

    This is, in my opinion, the BEST family-owned mechanic shop in Charlotte, probably all of NC. The owner, Beaver, is the most honest, honorable, and direct person I've ever met in this business. He expects the same traits in his staff. Youll never have to worry about them trying to "pad" your estimate.

    I really liked their honesty they told me what I should do to get my car fix instead of trying to do it knowing they couldn't get it fix just to get the money !! If I ever need my transmission done I for sure will go to this place also the people that work there are very kind and helpful !!!

    Took my wifes Element in for front wheel noise. I thought it was wheel bearings or the calipers weren't releasing fully. Chris test drove it and couldn't get it to make any noise. He said the bearings and calipers were fine. In fact he told me the calipers had been replaced. He said he could replace the rotors and pads but couldn't guarantee it would stop the noise. You can't go wrong with doing normal maintenance a little early on the wifes car. The mystery noise went away. They had every opportunity to take advantage and didn't. I appreciate their honesty and will have all my maintenance and repairs done here from now on. Highly recommend! Thanks guys!
