How often do you deny warranty work due to technicality? Like how often do you turn away AC repair because the customer doesn't have an oil-change log?

These are the only scenarios in which I would deny warranty work. 1.) The customer is out of warranty. But this is where it gets a little tricky. I can also override their warranty and goodwill work if they are just a little bit out of warranty. I usually draw the line after we start breaking 5k over warranty miles, or 4 -5 months after time runs out. 2.) Customer gets into a wreck, and tries to warranty a damaged part. 3.)The vehicle has been tampered with. Like wiring in an aftermarket radio and they manage to blow out the power or some function to their dash. Dealerships don't operate like that. You won't get denied warranty because you don't change your oil with us. BUT....if you come in with a blown motor, and check the oil, you have two quarts, or something else crazy like that we will deny warranty, or defer the decision to what we call a DTS. They are the Master of the Master Techs for Nissan that travel around and help out. We would let them make the call. I hardly ever deny warranty work. If I feel I can get paid by the brand for doing the work I will.

To break the habit of asking for mechanical advice: How do you like your job? Do you feel that you earn enough to lead a comfortable life? Was it hard to get promoted? Is Nissan your favorite brand to work for so far? Were you very knowledgeable about cars before you started working as a parts guy? Do you still see a lot of 300ZX's in your dealership? Thanks for doing this ama!

I love my job. It feels like I go to play most of the time. Sure, it is pretty stressful at times. I have to oversee a LOT of different functions of that dealership, and all the Service Advisors, Parts Guys, Techs, even Detail. I also am in charge of checking in and logging the new vehicles off the trucks. I love it though. I can't see myself in any other industry. The randomness that comes through that service drive is amazing. Every day is a new thing, new challenge, new hurdle to constantly stay current and competitive. I make enough but I could make more lol. I have three children and a wife so that cost money in itself. I can go farther, that is never an issue due to dealerships being all over. I am still young though, and plan on moving up. I won't say how much I get paid, but depending on dealer size and volume the average Fixed Ops Manager usually gets paid between 70-110k a year. That is in a medium size market. I can only imagine what money is to be made in a place like Miami or Atlanta. One day. Nissan is by far my favorite brand. I like how they respond to customer request the most. You have no idea, but the way Nissan handles customers and how serious they make it, helps make my job easier. For the first time, I actually feel like they are there to help support us like they should be. You don't get that from a lot of other brands. They just want numbers. I was pretty handy before I went into this life. My Father was enlisted Military, so we didn't have a ton of money. That translates into second and third hand everything, and my first car didnt even run. It was a 1982 Toyota MR2 that had to be towed to the house. My Father looked at me, gave me the keys, told me it needed a little work and then told me I owed Him $600 by the end of summer lol! We don't see too many 300s around, mostly the 240/280. There is one blue one that is around our area, though they never come in for work. It is heavily modded.
