Know your rights when it comes to vehicle repair and maintenance.

Click here to watch a brief video about your rights


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

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


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.


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


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.


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


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.


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


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.


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?


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.


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


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.


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


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.

-Norman D.

Allman's Auto is a very professional and trustworthy shop with some extremely knowledgeable mechanics. They are easy to work with and won't perform or recommend services you don't need! I also like the technology they use to keep you updated on the status of your service, health of your vehicle, and future appointments.


-Harry M.

Kevin and Mike are incredibly skilled at what they do and generous with their time. I had a pre-sale vehicle inspection done here. They took photos of all the areas they inspected and then explained what I was looking at. Thanks to them, I felt comfortable buying the vehicle. Also, these guys have a great sense of humor. Who doesn't need a good laugh?


-Sacha F.

Kevin and his team are very knowledgeable and they have never taken advantage of me, even suggesting solutions that would save my family money. Everybody needs "a guy" that can help when their car breaks down. Kevin is that guy for me.


-Michael M.

If you're looking for a new mechanic, give Kevin a chance. He only has 2 bays, but he's amazing.


-Randy B.

Best service I have ever had bar none. Respectful and thoughtful customer service. Above and beyond is their normal idea of work ethic. Will never bring any of my 3 vehicles anywhere else, and always recommend him to everyone I know looking for a mechanic.


-Michael S.

I think this is my fourth 5 star review I've left for Allman's, but the first on Google reviews. I have four drivers in my family now and four cars. Ever since I discovered Allman's (in 2015 from reading great reviews) I have gone to them for just about everything. It would be absolutely everything if I lived closer. In my opinion, Kevin is a master diagnostician, and has nailed it the first time on all the tricky problems I have brought to him. They are very thorough when inspecting a car for safety and will tell you the truth about what is really needed and things to keep an eye on. When I bring a car in that isn't riding right, it always leaves the shop riding like new. And I feel like I underpay (don't tell Kevin ;-).


-Jonathan G.

Had a great experience. He helped me figure out exactly why my car wasn't working (when the dealership gave me false information after spending just 5 minutes with my car) and fixed it for less than he originally quoted. He even left it running for an hour AND drove it several miles to make sure it wouldn't break down on me again, giving me peace of mind. Plus, the website they give you explaining every part of your car, including what needs immediate attention and what can wait, is great! Overall quick and helpful service that went above and beyond what I expected. Just wish they were closer, but I was towed there while pretty far from my house.


-Jennifer W.

Very happy with the service we received. Everyone is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I like the constant communication knowing what is going on at all times. No guessing and no surprises. I also enjoy reviewing the very detailed report on what has gone on with each review on all aspects of the car and what was looked at with each maintenance schedule. Well done and keep up the good work. I would certainly recommend Allman's Automotive and rest assured your car will be in good hands.


-Francis C.

I WILL NEVER TAKE MY CAR ANYWHERE ELSE!!!!!! The owner, Kevin, constantly goes above and beyond to make my car servicing experiences prompt and care-free!!! He's honest and trustworthy which means more to me than anything but you also can't beat his prices!!! I recommend everyone to try him out!!!!


-Jacob L.

FANTASTIC customer service and excellent work. A friend of mine referred me to Allman's Automotive after I moved to the area and was looking for a good mechanic. I went in for an oil change and battery replacement. The owner, Kevin, was friendly and down-to-earth. I had brought my laptop- Free Wifi and very comfortable waiting area- but hardly got anything done because the service was so quick! Pricing was very affordable and Kevin didn't try to sell me on anything additional, like a lot of other places I've tried. I definitely recommend Allman's Automotive- I'll be back for sure!


-Alyson H.

Kept my car going well for over 300k miles.


-Andrew M.

Excellent service, very informative and intuitive inspections. Great communication!
