Will aftermarket products void my warranty?
According to the Moss-Magnusson Warranty Act, a dealer can not deny a warranty claim unless they can definitively prove the aftermarket part caused the car malfunction. Below is the wording of the act.
Moss-Magnusson Warranty Act
(15 U.S.C. 2302(C))
(c) Prohibition on conditions for written or implied warranty; waiver by Commission
No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer's using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if: (1) the warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and (2) the Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest. The Commission shall identify in the Federal Register, and permit public comment on, all applications for waiver of the prohibition of this subsection, and shall publish in the Federal Register its disposition of any such application, including the reasons therefor.
Plus, I noticed some errors in my DIY and I will have it revised tonight.
Also, I found out a couple of days ago that there is some other stock airbox parts I missed removing and I will add a note about that in my DIY soon.
I have a friend at work that has a older Acura and when I was showing him the CAI he noticed some parts I did not remove. The older Acura's have a very similar airbox. Well, the plastic parts are between the battery and headlights. So, don't forget to remove those as well after/during installation of the CAI.
