Does a Porsche warranty cover oil changes?
I’m ready to get the first oil change for my new Porsche, but I’m wondering if I should take it into the dealer to have the service covered under my warranty. Does my warranty cover an oil change?

It’s never a bad idea to check whether you can avoid paying for something!
Porsche warranties do not cover oil changes—in fact, most car warranties don’t. In general, a limited or extended car warranty covers faulty parts in your vehicle that malfunction under normal use of the car. An oil change, however, is a maintenance service, and you are responsible to pay for it yourself.
In fact, if you fail to have your oil changed frequently and it results in damage to your Porsche, your warranty might not cover the repair, as this would mean you weren’t properly maintaining the car. So keep at it and stay on top of those oil changes!
Luckily, there are other ways to save money on Porsche ownership—and one of them is using Jerry, the car ownership super app, to buy a car insurance policy for your Porsche.
