….if you can’t afford to fix a possible related failure you may encounter in the future yourself and/or are not willing/able to possibly take legal action against Chrysler if a future claim is denied do to an aftermarket component being blamed for the failure, don’t mod the car while it’s under warranty. ….its that simple. Chrysler won’t ask a judge to review a claim they want to deny. They will do it based on their own criteria/belief. If that ever happens (and you feel you have a case), it will be up to you to take legal action if you are unable to resolve the issue with the manufacturer.
Folks can preach the Magnuson-Moss act all day long (and it’s good for a consumer to know their rights) but you also need to be realistic.
My advice? If you don’t want the potential hassle/liability, then either don’t mod or choose what you do very carefully.
btw, there are only few things that will legally “void” your warranty (i.e. odometer tampering), but a warranty “claim” is a different story. ….in other words, you may be denied on claim for a drivetrain failure due to power modifications but other non-related (un-touched) systems would still be covered.
