Read your contract. The insurer makes money by NOT paying on their policy. Some insurers allow a "grace period" i.e. 500/1000 miles for oil changes, etc. If you had your normal services done within the allowable times allowed, by the dealer, who should have done what the manufacturer required, you should be OK. Some insurers require that the service be performed by the dealer who sold you the contract. I had a claim denied for bad transmission bearings, at 43K miles, for failure to have the selling dealer perform a recommended motor oil and filter change. If you get a denial, go up the chain of command to the supervisor, and the supervisor's supervisor. Good luck.
