How to Offset Service Cost

How To Offset Service Cost By Brian Alexander, Road Test Editor

Keeping up with the manufacturer’s routine maintenance schedule is very important in the fight to keep your car in good shape. And while servicing your car more often may cost you more money in the long run, you may be able to recoup some of that money when it comes time to sell. 
 
If you are planning on selling your car, you will want potential buyers to know that you have continuously serviced the vehicle when necessary. There is no better way to do this than keeping all of your service records (DriverSide users can upload their records and access them anytime). Retaining service records communicates two things to potential buyers – that your car is well taken care of and that you have had few surprise issues with your car, as you are willing to show them your complete service history. A transparent service history is a double-edged sword and benefits those with a well documented and trouble free past.
 
Keeping all of your vehicle’s service records is also important if you need to prove that you have followed the terms of your warranty. In some situations manufacturers will claim that you did not follow the terms of their warranty will treat it as void. Having complete and detailed service records will allow you to dispute the manufacturers claim and leave no doubt in their minds that you have complied with the requirements of the warranty. And the more repair bills you’re able to charge to your warranty, the better.
