Do I need to do anything special to keep my warranty in force?

Maintaining Your Warranty

One of the beauties of buying a new car is the new car warranty. But don't be fooled. New car warranties generally only cover major systems. You will be responsible for all out-of-pocket routine maintenance costs. In fact, if you fail to properly maintain the vehicle, including keeping your service records, according to the manufacturer's recommended guidelines, you could end up voiding your warranty.

*Make sure you read your owner's manual and understand both the terms of any applicable warranties as well as all routine maintenance requirements required to keep your warranty in force.

My Audi requires full synthetic oil. The change interval is 10,000 miles or 1 year. The crankcase holds over 7 quarts. At $5.00 a quart 3,000 miles is overkill. For conventional oils, OK. Not full synthetic.
