Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act


The short story:

While there are products that can cause warranty concerns, our products do not void any factory or aftermarket warranties.  

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act offers consumer protection that prevents a manufacturer from denying a warranty claim simply due to the existence of an aftermarket component. The burden of proof is on the manufacturer to prove that the aftermarket component caused damage. 

Yet sometimes when the dealer is asked the same question, you are told that our products will void their warranty. THIS IS NOT TRUE and usually is a result of uneducated employees who does not understand our products. Simply ask them to get that statement in writing - and you never will. Why are we so sure? Enter the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (MMWA) - details below. 

If you're having an issue with the vehicle that may be related to one of our products, it is not necessary, but may be best to remove the product beforehand to avoid giving a dealership tech something to blame.   

The long story:

Passed by Congress in 1975 - Section 102(c), 15 U.S.C. 2302(c), the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (MMWA) prevents manufacturers from using disclaimers on warranties in an unfair or misleading manner. The MMWA prohibits tying arrangements that condition coverage under a written warranty on the consumer's use of an article or service identified by brand, trade, or corporate name unless that article or service is provided without charge to the consumer.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act prohibits product manufacturers from conditioning consumer warranties on the use of any original equipment part or service. Furthermore, a manufacturer can only deny warranty coverage if it can demonstrate that a non-original equipment part or related service caused a defect to occur in the original product. In the case of motor vehicles, new car manufacturers have ignored these conditions outlined in Magnuson-Moss and have misled consumers to believe that they must have dealer service shops install only original equipment replacement parts or fear having their new car warranty voided.

And for further clarity, if a non-original equipment part caused a defect to occur in the original product, they could only deny warranty coverage for this specific repair, not void an entire warranty.
