Can anyone advise on Car Service

By Angelo

My car is off the showroom in Nov '07 and is a 2008 model Camry,  I have to drive down to Industrial area a lot.  I have scrapped the bottom and sometimes doing high speed to Raslaffan the car tends to vibrate at 80 to 100 but over that it is fantastic. This morning after opening the hood, there are a lot of stones in the engine area and on the parts that can hold some s@it.

My question, -----  I got to take it in for the 15K check up, will there be a problem. I do not want to loose the warranty. I am sure there are a lot of dents and scratches on the bottom, the car is to darn low.

 

I did the 1K, 5K and 10K check up and service, but now the car rattles and shakes. the darn roads in Industrial area are shyte. Deep craters covered by water or huge speed breakers.

 

Any comments would be appreciated?????

You won't loose the warranty as most service center here don't care about the dents underneath...they are right in saying that you need is just a simple case of wheel balancing and alignment...as you've said the vibration only occurs at a certain speed (80-100 kph)  so it's just wheel balancing and alignment

Wheel alignment is your problem, You still have your warranty if you follow the recommended services, they don't care about dents.

I have not taken it out to any of the car stations in Doha yet,  only at the Toyota station, now that I need to take it to toyota for the 15K check up in the next day or two, I am worried that I may loose the warranty.  The odometer shows 14485 so any day now it goes to the shop for check up.

 

My worry is loosing the warranty, due to the dents and scratches under the car.  Also, the vibrations.

The reason for vibration is the miss allignment of tyre that would have been caused by driving on rough roads .. have the tyres checked .. warrently has nothing to do with the way u drive your vechicle .. is only when u use counterfit parts and miss out on the routine maintenance would it become void.
