Voided warranty and not a GTR!

Press the "competition mode" buton in a z06 = blown motor and warranty void

C-6 Z06 Blown engine not warranted by GM - Corvette Forum

cliffs:
GM denies blown motor warranty because the car was in competition mode and it had racing seats, a tow ring, and rubber in the fender wells from the stock tires , which apparently caused the motor to blow up.

warranty void button

Quote:
GM may deny warranty coverage if the vehicle or part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper or insufficient maintenance or modifications not approved by GM. This includes common "upgrades" customers may make such as wheels, tires, suspension, brakes, air induction and engine calibrations.

Re: Voided warranty and not a GTR!

I see GM denying a lot of warranties to save money...and hoping the people they deny don't know about the law.


I think the difference in this case though is that they are being denied for stuff that was ADDED to the car...not something that came on the car from the factory.

dammit i already replied on SVTP!

Nevar drive a modded car that shows signs of abuse into the dealer for warranty work. All they need is probable cause to deny a claim.

Yeah, what was said above. Common sense is at least clean the damn car first, haha.

Re: Voided warranty and not a GTR!

I spent 45 minutes taking the chunks of rubber out from under the car when I had to have my rear diff resealed under warranty. Then I found out the service manager was someone I knew...so that 45 mins was spent for nothing. lol
