the dealership where i live (Uvalde, Texas) wont void warranties :thumbsup they actually install chips :hyper: im now excited to get my dpf delete and not worried
I think you would rather call my dealer a performance shop than a dealer, they have been great to me on everything, I was there test mule for the 6.7 and they have sold alot from people seeing how mine holds up since most know how I drive:lol3: I have not had one problem in a year well take that back I had to replace the block heater and it was under warrentyIt just varies from stealer to stealer.LOL Thats exactly what they are. LOL How can they install a 6in lift on a new truck and not void the susp warranty but if I do it its voided. Its whatever benefits them. Thiefs! Thiefs! Thiefs!
Would this be customer service at the dealership, or at Chysler HQ? Also, what parts do you have on your rig that would possibly violate warranty? It doesnt say in your sig.Yes!!!
The best way to go about it is, to call Dodge Customer Service, and tell the person there that you want to start a reference file.
First, be sure to give them your name, and VIN #, and all of your truck's info.
Especially mods you have already performed, and the mods you are wanting to do!
As you go through your list of modifications, ask them to find out from their manager if these mods will void your warranty?
I did, and every response was...
..."No sir, it will NOT void your warranty. However, if the modification is proven to be the direct route of the part(s) failure, then you will have to pay for the labor and parts to fix your vehicle, for this particular time, at your own expense. But your vehicle will still be under warranty, along with all the new parts installed at your dealership."
So, basically if you stack 3 programmers and "cook" your tranny, then you're going to have to pay for the new tranny + the labor to install it, this time. But your new tranny, along with the rest of the truck (that wasn't affected) WILL continue to be covered under warranty!
So, a basic summary is, no matter what you do to your truck, they can NEVER void ANY warranty...b/c the bottom line is: It's YOUR truck, and you can alter/modify it, as you see fit. And they can't tell you otherwise.
But if YOU tear it up b/c of an aftermarket part, then you're on your own ($$$) to get it fixed. But your warranty will still be in tact.
Plus, if you have it in your Reference File that Dodge ok'd these modifications, as long as you understand what CAN happen, then you don't have to ever worry about your warranty being voided!
** ALSO, a big tip:
Once you get your Reference File completed, be sure and ask for YOUR Reference File #!!!
It makes things alot simpler if you ever have to call them back. All you have to do is give them your Ref. File #, and...Poof! There's all of your information, right there in front of them!!!
And if you go to a dealership, and they try to tell you that you don't have a warranty because you modified your truck, tell them to call Dodge, and check your reference file, which will confirm that you recieved the OK to do these modifications!!!
And, say..."Here's my Ref. File #, if you'd like to call them yourself! All they're gonna do is just confirm that I recieved the OK from Chrysler to do ALL of these things to MY truck!!!"
And they'll shut-up REAL quick!!!!!!!!!
It's kind of cool when that happens!
So, I would highly recommend doing this!!! Especially before you do ANY more mods to your truck!
