This question seems to come up (and answered) often on here. I've even seen some posts where people believed that their dealer service department has told them their original Dodge warranty has been voided because of a simple and safe modification or upgrade such as a reso delete or CAI. I even saw one post where the writer had a Mopar CAI and the dealer told them their warranty has been voided.

The answer is NO, your warranty is not voided by modification, UNLESS:

1. The modification caused damage to a part or parts covered by the warranty, and
2. They can prove it caused damage.

If both conditions exist, your entire warranty is not voided, only the parts they can prove are related to the damage caused by the modification.

If your dealer tries to pull this BS, remind them of the above, and mention the Magnuson-Moss Act, which is the federal law regarding warranties. And those of you that believed the dealership's lie that your warranty was voided, research the M-M Act and revisit your dealership to set them straight. You can also contact the manufacturer of the part you installed and ask for their assistance.

modifications such as cai and cat back cannot void warranty, and void is a big word, restricted is a much better word, the argument is that many Mopar edition vehicles, come from the factory with cold air intakes and cat back exhaust, hence, pretty hard to restrict warranty for such modifications

anything related to pcm like tuning, headers, cats,force induction, etc will restrict your warranty and the onus is always on the owner to prove otherwise and unless you have deep pockets to fight the factory you stand to loose

dont shoot the messenger, im simply stating it just the way it is

ps, to further that make sure you read service maintenance agreements closely, many aftermarket providers will have clauses that restrict and gives them a way to deny coverage even if such things as different tires sizes have been installed, read the fine print, ignorance is not a defense

No Mopar edition vehicle was ever equipped with a Cat Back Exhaust.
