your lo­cal pro­fes­sional has ac­cess to flu­ids that meet the spec­i­fi­ca­tions re­quired by your owner's man­ual.

In ad­di­tion, reg­u­lar ser­vice items, such as re­plac­ing wiper blades, brakes, and cabin air filters, do not have an im­pact on war­ranty cov­er­age, though you should cer­tainly check to see if any ser­vice pack­age you may have pur­chased with your new car in­cludes th­ese items.
