Re: The law

It won't void the warranty unless they can prove that the part was the cause of the problem.

Re: The law

Magnussen-Moss warranty act -> manufacturer's can't void warranties for aftermarket parts unless the part can be proven to be the direct cause for failure of the manufacturers' part

Re: The law

If you are dealing with a Ford dealership, I would recommend talking to the service directors at several dealerships near you, one of them should be a mod-friendly or semi mod-friendly dealership that will at least work with you on modifications.

best bet here. Ive seen some dealers act like a real dick over mods before. Then again I never took my car back to the dealer, wouldnt want something to actually break

Re: The law

if you buy a car and you plan on doing mods, getting a warranty is a waste. i got one with the GST and it was a waste, not cause they voided it, but cause everything that actually did break was not covered (alternator, converti top and ribs, etc).
