EXACTLY what I have been saying did you read it all?
QUOTED from my last post, and in the other one before that also.
THE PART THE DIRECTLY AFFECTED SAID FAILURE WILL MAKE A DENIAL with a claim ON THAT PART OR WHAT WAS AFFECTED OR "COULD BE" by said mod.
That is entirely up to the manufacturer. If they do decide to not cover it it's up to them to prove that your modification is the cause of the failure which is what I'm trying to
Thats every easy with modifications... Simply, its not what our engineers, called for with said vehicle. Hence the "MAY" part of warranty. COVER THEIR ASS LEGALLY.
You gotta really think about this for a minute. If say Kia sells, say (all the fleet)(every model) say 5 million cars. OK. Not out of thought with every model. Now if out of those 5 million sold, there is a mere 500k that mod their cars In as little or as big as you can think), cause motor failures, suspension issues, trans issues, ect, because of mods, well, they are gonna lose money if they warrant every person with a mod. Simple.
Labor, shipement of parts (most are comming from Korea) paying workers, paying bills, dealer franchise bills, ect.
You gotta think, how many people out there are just throing these parts on without a thought.
With your theory, you could go out in your garage, buy a turbo kit, run that car all day and night, run great miles and miles, yet one day, a bad failure happens to the motor. Now say you did ALL maintinece, you would expect Kia to warrant the said issue, whatever it is? Come on..... They dont mention what mods will "DENY" warrant, so they can say anything, is too broad (BUT that is the system), you get by, being "broad". THats called "being legal, but a bid deceptive" within reason though.
They can, and will, (NOT EVERY dealer) mine is fine with a few little bolt ons, but MOST WILL.
Mod it man, I love it myself. Dont care what they are gonna say to me, so your barking up the wrong tree saying its wrong what Im saying. I love it when they say, well what you did cause bla, bla, even though it didn't. But I dont got the time, nor money to go to court fighting it.
After you make some good mods and something happens,
PLEASE, post back and let us know what they told you.
And if you fight it legally, let us know how much it cost you and how much time in court it took.
WHAT I AM SAYING,
IF YOU MOD IT,
EXPECT the WORST, when it comes to the warranty, and know what you are getting into.
