Wheel hop to the point of breaking the tranny case is also self-inflicted. I've put 6-7 races, several drag strip trips, and drive it like it's supposed to be driven daily. Never broken anything.Blubatmobile said:Everything that you described something that you are doing to the car, ya, hitting the dash and putting a hole in it obviously will not be covered because it is self inflicted.
My examples are still legit. I'm simply taking them to the extreme. How about this...
You load a bunch of 2x4's into the trunk. Hit the brakes and one comes flying forward punching a hole into the dash. Why shouldn't GM cover that in your logic? If they were going to make the trunk large enough to contain wood, then why shouldn't they know you're going to have to hit the brakes that hard, and therefore reinforce the dash because of it?
What if you have a big 'dip' at the front of your driveway that you go over at 20mph over and over again. In a few weeks your entire front suspension is shot. Why shouldn't GM cover that? Shouldn't they know that the someone is going to have a big dip in front of the driveway, and why shouldn't the car be able to go over anyting that the front end can clear without damage?
Point being, it's abuse. Plain and simple. You can abuse a car in a number of ways that don't exceed design tolerances. Neutral dropping an automatic is a great example too...
