I really need what is left of the warranty so I was wondering if adding a Cold Air Intake or exhaust would void the warranty? I already have the exhaust taken care of seeing as it had it when I bought it last night. Also anyone recommend a Intake?
they could TRY, but the dealership can't void the warranty, only the manufacturer can. Its not that big of a deal, mod it if you want, but be smart about it, if you go turbocharging your brand new kia, dont expect to have a warranty on your head gasket when you blow it sky high. On the other hand, if you install an aftermarket muffler, and your master cylinder fails, the 2 are most likely unrelated. Any many class action lawsuits are lost by major car manufacturers over this all the time. I just got a letter about one from a Honda Civic I owned (dont have it any more), and I got ANOTHER one for a Mitsu. Eclipse i owned before that. And the fact is this the MM warranty act is a law, and kia, among other manufacturers HAVE to abide by it....warranties getting voided for no reason doesnt happen like it did years ago. We should start a poll to see how many people on the forum have had their warranties OFFICIALLY voided by the mfr. after say....1995. I havent really had a problem with any dealer about a/m parts, and i havent owned a bone stock vehicle in a long time, and i have worked as a tech at quite a few dealerships.1fastkia said:Just because of the mma doesnt mean they wont void it. Like said in another thread they are preaty much banking on you not going further with it if you get voided. If you fight it youll have to hire a lawyer (big money) and go to court, also if your at court your gonna miss work (more lost money).. So dont do mods if you even in the slightest scared of getting voided. Me personallyy I dont give a crap if they void me. I do most of my work myself anyways.
