Best post I've read all day. :bigthumbup:Voiding warranties is not as simple as some here are making it sound. EVEN IF a dealer decided to be a COMPLETE asshole and comb a car for modifications while in for something completely unrelated to what the car is currently there for, it requires lots of paperwork, corporate approval, etc. I don't think we have ever "pre-flagged" a vehicle in the decade that I have been at my dealer.
If you come in with a blown engine and a larger turbo, then yes, kindly **** off. Moisture in your headlights after they have been taken apart and painted? Have a nice day. Suspension noise or a blown strut on lowering springs? There's the door. Other than that or similar scenarios, it is unlikely that you will have an issue.
This particular recall pays for 0.5 hours of my time. It is not to my benefit, nor anyone else's to try and **** you over on your dealer visit. It won't make me any more money now or later, therefore unless it affects my job, I don't care.
Although if you have a lowered car and I have to rack it on the lift, I hate you.
Just got my recall letter today.
