Yes, "local" warranty depends on you bringing your vehicle in for SCHEDULED maintenance AT the dealership. Unfair? Well, we know our locals and their tendency to try to make excuses have the value of acts. You can't give warranty on a vehicle which will get it's oil change only "manana". The service at Delta is very good. But yes, it may be a little more expensive that the back yard guy who was going to do it... manana.Excellent point JD. In fact, take a very close looks at the warranty given here. It may include wording that you must return to the dealer for all oil changes and other required service. If you purchase a Toyota in Santo Domingo and live in Sosua, how likely are you to have a valid warranty with such requirements?
My main reason for mentioning Toyota in the first place is that there is normally a supply of parts available locally for Toyota vehicles and most mechanics are familiar with working on them.
