Fairly new to the community. With all the exciting mod talks, I figured I toss this tidbit in here for all U.S owners. I found this about a year ago talking to a co-worker who was modifying his jeep. We're talking lift kit/exhaust/intakes the whole thing. I asked "Hey man what about the warranty? and he told me about The Magnuson Moss-Warranty Act.
Essentially it says this:
[copied straight from the attached link]
1) Warranties can not be voided simply because an aftermarket part is used on your vehicle.
2) Warranty repairs can only be denied when it can be proven than an aftermarket part caused the failure.
3) The burden of proof is on the manufacturer – the dealership must show that a specific aftermarket part caused a problem in order to deny a warranty claim.
4) When an aftermarket part is the cause of a specific problem, only the warranty for that problem can be denied. Other, unrelated problems are still covered under warranty.
5) The dealership or manufacturer can not require consumers to use a particular brand of part or require service to be completed at a specific location as a condition of their warranty.
Hopefully none of us have to experience using a warranty repair. But, in the event you do and have modifications, you can think of this!
What do you guys think about this law, did you know about it? For anyone outside the US, are there similar laws that help protect consumers?
