How do I keep my Lifetime Warranty valid?

There are only three things you must do in order to keep your lifetime warranty valid.

Your Responsibilities:

To obtain the benefits provided under this limited warranty, it is the responsibility of the Vehicle Purchaser named in the contract to:

  1. Assure that engine oil and filter are changed at minimum every six (6) months or six thousand (6,000) kilometers, whichever occurs first, and maintain all purchase/service receipts evidencing the engine has been serviced. In addition, maintain Your Vehicle according to the manufacturer's recommendations as outlined in the owner's manual. NOTE: Your owner's manual has separate required maintenance schedules for "normal" and "more severe" operating conditions. Follow the maintenance schedule that applies to Your Conditions. In the case of repair and claim and Driven Cars Canada needs to be replaced by an alternate repair facility, contact Driven Cars Canada for review and approval.
  2. Have a powertrain inspection performed by Driven Cars Canada once every three (3) years. This inspection must be made within sixty (60) days of each 3-year anniversary of the warranty start date shown on your contract. If this is not possible, you must submit all maintenance records for review and acceptance by Driven Cars Canada following the same schedule as indicated on the contract. Failure to do so will void this Limited Warranty.
  3. Replace leaking engine/powertrain or coolant seals and gaskets that relate to the protection of the engine/powertrain from lubricant loss or overheating.
