I bought a certified pre-owned car from a reputable dealer about 6 weeks ago. I bought an extended warranty/service contract through the dealer too.
A few days after I got it, I was involved in a major accident. I got it back, and then yesterday I noticed what I think is whining from the front differential. (I've only put 1,000 miles on the vehicle at most.)
My question is this.
I called the dealer this morning (as the warranty requires) and told them about the issue and asked when I could bring it in. They told me they COULD have me drop it off today but it won't be looked at until Thursday. That means I would be paying for a rental today, tomorrow, and the next day before it's even LOOKED at - and that's like $100.
If I choose to wait to drop it off until Thursday morning, am I voiding my warranty in any way? Should I even be worried about this? I asked the girl at the service department and she said it's fine but I've been screwed over, like, ten times this year, so I'm very nervous. Also, very broke. VERY, VERY broke.
