I think he means the Inspection II service

Have them check your valve gaskets, they usually start to go bad around those miles. CPO covered also.

Sorry guys -I did mean inspection 2 service. I have around 17k miles left on my cpo warrentie and haven't had the inspection 2 service-I've performed my own work -just wondering if the stealer would try to use that and argue the point , when trying to have this work repaired.

you tell them the radiator is leaking, they will verify it and replace it.

stealership? common folks, its where these cars originally came from. these cars we purchased ranged from at least 30 grand to who knows what...that tells me components of these cars must be pricey as well. and that CPO warranty plan is the best in the market. Imagine if you bought a lexus or mercedes benz and had that issue? Talk about having fun...

poolman, if the work you did voided the warranty then you got a problem. when you purchased the car were you shown the specs of the plan? make that a reference to the specific work you did on your own. If its in relation to tires, wheel alignment, and the battery, iI wouldn't worry about it though.

The only work I've performed so far is spark plugs-brakes and replacing the filter and fluid in the tranny-I may have a problem if the tranny goes but knock on wood it's worked great since the drain and refill. Oh yeah I did remove the air horn out of the air box and installed a K&N filter.
