AutoWerks Third Party Warranties Policy 23.08.15 updated24.01.16

AutoWerks Inc Third Party Warranties Policy 23.08.15 Updated 24.01.16 Advisory Note: Purchasing a used vehicle: some insurers have in the policy that PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS are not covered. Recently a $7000 premium policy on 192,000mi vehicle everything was "PRE-EXSITING". MAKE SURE THESE WORDS DO NOT APPEAR IN THE POLICY.   Every part of a car is pre-existing We suspect that the used car lots do not make money of the sale but on the policy​. We at AutoWerks are experiencing are sharp increase in the time to administer third party warranties as well as denial of required aspects of a repair. What is/is not covered is actually between the policy holder and the insurance company. An example: denial of paying for replacement of one-time-use fasteners, that is, the owner pays for it or re-use the removed ones. We will not re-use one-time parts.  We are also experiencing payment avoidance.   So, o ... read more



The Purpose of Tires

The subject of  "The Purpose of Tires" is not a trivial one.  Seemingly, it protects the rim from the pavement, yes?  The wheel which is comprised of the rim fitted with at tire. A railroad wheel has a tire which steel ring shrunk on to an iron or steel rim.  The tire is formulated to accommodate the surface for adequate grip and adequate longevity. To do so means that they are to allow only one freedom of motion (one directions without resistance)  "forward/backward",  The other two are not allowed "not passing thru the road surface", and "not sideways" The most important wheel on the car are the REAR's.    (long pause ...................)      Yes, the fronts perform important functions of bringing the nose to the direction to go, provide majority of the stopping power, and if a front drive the thrust to fo forward.  But, the rears are the most critical in keeping t ... read more

THE FUNDAMENTAL PREMISE IS SEMI-ANNUAL                                                          (DISREGARD MILEAGE)  This schedule is more realistic than the manufacturers' and much  easier for the owner as it is calendar based rather than the more  difficult mileage format. (Think: dental cleaning based on number  of chews). This service appointment then becomes routine and predictable, unlike the mileage scheme that easily becomes out of synch.   SPECIAL NOTE:PRIMARY REASON FOR A 6 MONTH IS THE ROAD-WORTHINESS CHECK This Recommendation is for all cars so that at anytime it is ready for the road.  (To confirm it's readiness, at ... read more


Updated 2023.04.20   We consider routine maintenance to be the key for the longevity, reliability and economical operation of your vehicle. We work with you to organize your visits for routine maintenance, oil changes, state inspections, and more. The fundamental service period is calendar based. regardless of the mileage with some exceptions. The fewer visits the better.  Best maintenance practice is by the calendar so then you simply add to day-planner just like all other things in your life, dental, bill paying etc.  Servicing by mileage is so easily gotten out of synch as time goes by, and reminder stickers on windshield fade away literally and mentally. When we reset the Service Reminder Indicator, it likely will not come on before the  next service as it is set for a very long mileage/time interval. Our sticker is placed on the driver's door jam or door. . It registers the Date, Odometer, Oil used, and our phone ... read more
