Maybe you’ve heard of powersports or automotive dealerships pressuring people into buying the manufacturer’s brand of parts or lubricants to avoid losing their factory warranty. It may have happened to you. If so, it probably left a bad taste in your mouth.
That’s because no one likes to be told what to buy. And no one likes to be taken advantage of.
Why do some dealerships issue veiled threats of new-vehicle or new-equipment warranty denial if you choose a different brand of parts or lubricants? In part, it’s to boost sales of their own products.
Fortunately, in America, the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act protects your freedom to choose the brands of parts and lubricants you think are best. It also protects your right to extend oil-change intervals beyond what’s specified in your owner’s manual without fear of voiding your factory warranty.
Get the facts about your rights
U.S. Federal Law
- It is illegal to tie warranty coverage to whichever brand of parts or lubricants you use. Manufacturers that do so must provide the parts or lubricants free of charge.
- You have the freedom to choose how you protect your vehicles and equipment, including extending drain intervals.
- Manufacturers can’t deny warranty coverage without showing the aftermarket part or lubricant caused a failure.

Like our products, the AMSOIL Limited Warranty is built with an extra measure of protection. While some other oil companies guarantee their products only until you reach a specified mileage, we don’t place restrictions on our warranty coverage based on total vehicle miles.
We stand behind our products for as long as you use them.
AMSOIL products are Warranty Secure, keeping your factory warranty intact. They are high-performance replacements for vehicle/equipment manufacturer-branded products.
