Can a dealership void a warranty over something that is not in the contract?

If it isn't in the contract that you have to get the oil changed there or it voids the warranty, they can't void it. Read the contract very carefully and make sure it doesn't say that. Just a side note. If it is in the contract, they should have told you. That part won't hold up if you have to go to court, but it's just the nice thing to do. Don't buy from there again. If you don't see it anywhere in the contract, you need to go to the dealer and make them show you where it says that. If they can't show you, tell them you want them to honor the contract or you'll sue them. If they won't honor the contract, then you need to find a lawyer. There are some lawyers that will look at your case for free and let you know if it's worth taking to court. Or if you can't afford a lawyer after that, you may be able to find a mediator or something to deal with the case for free. Talk to someone at the court house and see what they can do for you. If it's not in the contract, they can't void it for you taking your oil changes somewhere else. Good luck!

As long as the warranty is still in the boundries of being valid then the warranty will be carried over to the new owner.

They can if it's written somewhere, such as your contract or in a place where a buyer would be reasonably able to see it.

In dealings such as these, consult an attorney in your local area. A contract, even one with errors, is legally binding upon the signing parties. Hopefully the error is in your favour. Note that if you didn't have an attorney look over the contract, it could be completely different from what the dealership said. (A verbal contract is generally only worth the paper it's printed on.) I am not a lawyer. You should consult a local lawyer. It's always a good idea to have your own attorney look over any contract before you sign it.

You can purchase a used car warranty most of the time for used cars. You do not have to do anything separately to get one - usually when you talk to financing at the dealership they will go over the warranty at the same time of the car sale. You can purchase a warranty without any issue on cars made within the last 5 years.

two different issues. Paying the notes (DEFAULT) does not concern warranty issues. Contract does not say that you dont pay if it dont work.Lenders have wisely avoided getting their loans confused with warranty. Lenders loan money, warranty takes care of the problems.
