Before you finalized the things ask your Car dealer to furnish you with all the detailed information about the Car warranty. Understand the items covered in the Car warranty. Some items that are commonly excluded in the items covered by Car warranty may include your wipers, battery, windows, fluids, oil filter, tires, belts, accessories and the emissions system. Most Car manufacturers do not honor warranties when the problem could be due to the fault or abuse or misuse of the owner.
Also, almost without exception, service departments offer some form of warranty on their work. Obviously, if the Car is still covered by the master warranty any repeat repairs will be covered. But most Car dealer service departments warrant their work on Car that is out of warranty. The warranties are usually specific to the repair and may cover parts, labor and rental Car expenses. Small garages may also offer warranties, but the advantage of a service department warranty is that it is usually good at any dealer of that make of Car.
In case if the problem you're experiencing is the subject of a manufacturer's recall, a service department mechanic will be more likely to know about it. Service departments at Car dealers typically run a check each time you bring your vehicle in for service to determine whether a recall has been issued for that make and model. Also, many Car manufacturers require that recall repairs be done by a service department.
Finally, if your Car needs to be in the shop for an extended period of time a service department that's located on the same site as an Car dealer can offer you more convenient access to your vehicle.
