Maintenance is required by oil type and is defined as follows:

8. Why is my dealership suggesting additional maintenance services?

Manufacturers require a minimum level of services and will often state this in the owner’s manual. Your driving style and environmental conditions will impact the level of service work required to keep your vehicle performing at peak levels. While you are only required to perform the customary maintenance outlined in your agreement, we strongly encourage you to follow your dealership’s recommendations when being offered additional services.

9. How does CarSaver know when I have maintenance performed?

You are required to keep records of all maintenance performed on your vehicle. Record of maintenance must include the vehicle identification number (VIN), description of the vehicle, date of service, and your vehicle’s mileage. For your convenience, the CarSaver Protect app allows you to save all records associated with your vehicle.
