after a minor search it appears that if you keep all of your receipts and use all of the proper replacements ... you should be good...dont quote me but thats what i am banking on

wouldnt hurt to write everything down too, like a log. mileage, when you did it, along with receipts. should be enough proof after that

I save the receipts, the box top from the oil filter and I take a picture with all the stuff sitting on the motor, print it out and staple the papers together. It all goes in a resealable plastic bag along with the rest of the maintenance records.

Keep the receipts, log the date and mileage and what you did and you should be good.
