    Default Manditory Semi-annual inspections

    I know GM offers this BS, but is it manditory?
    Guy from the dealer-stealer just called said im over due for this inspection where they check fluid levels and air pressure. He said its manditory to keep the warranty valid, is there any truth to this?
    My truck has already been through 2 of these wastes of money and they want a 3rd with only 32000km's.

    Anyone know if these are actually manditory or just a cash grab for cash straped dealers and company?

    thanks in advanced

    I have never had to do that with either of my trucks, I think it is probably a scam. My mom did that with her 1999 Cavalier for the first three times, and then she stopped doing it when they forgot to put the oil plug back in it and my mom almost ran the car dry of oil going to work. If I remember right they charged my mom around $125 for that inspection, so it definately wasn't cheap to do.
