    Default Void of Warranty

    My 08 Tundra is getting a new Sound to it. My friend says that putting a new Exhaust will Void my warranty. Is this true. I don't believe him cause its all right to put a Cold air intake but not a exhaust. Whats ur 2 cents.

    Absolutley untrue. Any modification can be completed / added and nt void warrenty if it does not effect the OEM product this includes emissions systems. |Exhaust can be replaced with aftermarket as long as the emissions equipment is still intact. Any dealer that indicates that the warrenty is voided due to an installation of aftermarket can be sued by the owner of the vehicle and the manufacture made to pay for the repair bill.

    This being said, don't cut out your cat. convertors and install straight pipes. You can install or have installed an aftermarket or manufacture exhust system from the cat. converters back or the manifolds (headers) without voiding any warrenties. I hope that this will help.

    Basically, for Toyota to deny any warranty claim, they have the burden of proof to show the part you installed caused the damage or failure. For instance, if you installed your exhaust, and then shortly thereafter your stereo quit working, they can't deny that claim because the exhaust has nothing to do with the stereo. But, if they can show that your exhaust caused some sort of damage, they could deny a warranty claim on the part the exhaust supposedly damaged.

    ^^^^^^THIS^^^^^^^


    But that's where the problem lays (lies??)

    If your dealer is a butthole, they can claim your cat-back added 100# of torque (sarcastic manufacturer claim....don't yell at me) and that is what caused your drivetrain malady; then YOU are left to fight it quoting the MM act.

    As far fetched as it seems, I had a buddy who gave up on Dodge because of denied warranty claims. He had front end problems on his 3/4 ton Cummins supposedly because of the 35's he was running!!!

    At one of the local Ford dealers here, I guess the service manager and the sales manager don't get along. During a routine oil change, the service manager was seen taking pictures of the sales managers smaller top pulley on his '03 Cobra in order to void the warranty.



    So while I think everyone's answer to the OP's question is 100% correct......there can also be a "depends" added to it (no, not the adult diaper, you freaks!!!)
