No warranties are required by law, but once offered, it becomes a part of the sales agreement. Legal precedent has provided that no manufacturer can stipulate warranty coverage eligibility based on whether the routine service was done by the warranter or not. Only that the routine service has to have been accomplished. This would be covered by anti-trust laws in the US. It would amount to limiting SAAB from drumming up service business through their warranty. You just can't do that, at least not in the US. I'm not a lawyer, (and I don't play one on TV) but this is my understanding of the situation. -Fred W
