Warranty is up in Nov 05


Recommended Posts

2002 Boxster 2.7

What are some things I should have changed or looked at before my warranty is expired. "Common defects" I think is what Im trying to say.

I just don't want it to expire and then something finally breaks when I could of looked at it first and applied it to the warranty!

Today I dropped it off anyway and they are changing the oil seal separator, window regulator, and something in the exhaust that is making a noise.

Any suggestions on things I should look at that always break on these cars?

Thanks

Check for oil leaks (including the rear main seal, spark plug tubes).

I called the dealer today and they replaced the rear main seal anyway. dont ask me why along with an exhaust manifold(had a leak). Along with that they are changing the oil seperator. Thank god this is all under warranty! :clapping:

okbye2 - thanks.  but you didn't see anything leaking before taking it in?

Honestly... it must have been minimal to even notice. The mechanic at the dealer noticed it while he had it on the lift (im guessing) i was lucky that they told me that it was leaking and they changed it. if you dont have any stains on your drive way then i wouldnt worry.... do you still have warranty? if so then you should take advantage and take it in. I was really surprised on how honest they were.

They changed also both of my window motors even though I had a problem with only one of them.

Since they changed the rear main seal I also got a free oil change out of this one. :beer:

Which dealer did you take it to and who was your service advisor?

I took it to "The Collection" here in Miami. Good service but they took a long time...about 1 week
