and that depends alot on the service facility also but if you argue it will go your wayJohn said:Wrong if you lower the car the only thing that you void the warranty on is what you changed and the things that are affected such as shocks etc.
man.. you sounded alot more eloquint than me, but exactly right.Jim Lewis said:The Magnusson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act of 1975 indicates that a manufacturer has to prove that a modification you've made to their product caused a particluar failure. Of course, if you go into the service department and blast the service manager, he's likely to just ask you to leave - these are private businesses, and they can do that.
I handle lemon law and breach of warranty cases for a living as an expert witness - this question has come up many times.
Exactly right - if you change your struts to aftermarket, don't expect warranty claims to be honored on your springs and strut housings...just like if you install an aftermarket stereo and your speakers blow, you've probably bought new speakers vs getting them free.Sp00ner said:You just have to be reasonable with your expectations of warrantied service. I don't think most dealers would deny you service on your fuel pump because you installed a different type of air filter. On the other hand, if you drop your car 3 inches and some suspension components wear out. You shouldn't be 100% sure that warranty is going to cover it.
No, not really - control arms, bushings that squeak or moan, sway bar end links, etc are all covered under the basic warranty. Now, other than control arms and bushings, you're not talking about anything major, cost or labor wise.palahniuk said:Yeah, but don't the majority of suspension parts fall under the wear category anyway?
