Cold Air induction and Powertrain Warranty
 
I have put an Airaid cold induction kit on my 2003 Ram.
I was using a little oil b4 i put the kit on and want 2 address my concerns with the dealer,as it's getting worse.

The burden of proof that a mod you installed caused a problem is on the dealer.

Cold Air Induction
 
I phoned the dealer and they stated Dodge will not honor any warranty with any air kit on,other than factory box.
It was just what i figured so, i'll have 2 put factory box back on, pain in the arse and totally UNWARRANTED .

Hmmm . . . that is interesting. Wonder if it goes in for regular service if they will void the warranty in their system. I get free oil changes where I bought mine from, hate to think they would auto-void it once they pop they hood and see an aftermarket air intake.

i thought they same thing till i took mine in . i have a spacer intake and exhaust . the dealer wont void the warranty for that, but if you call the 800 # for the warr dept they say it voids it

As with many things, the answer is...it depends.

The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act says that a manufacturer cannot deny a warranty claim because of an aftermarket part, unless the part in question actually CAUSED the problem that the warranty claim is about. So technically unless they can prove that it did in fact cause the problem they can't void your warranty, but they can make life really difficult by fighting you on it. Just because the law is on your side with this doesnt mean the dealership is going to be. So I would talk to the service department and see where they stand on it.

I just bought an 03 in April, one of my first question to the guy in charge of the warranties was "if I put on a CAI on will it void any warranties?" His answer "You can do any modification you want it will only void the warranty if it causes the problem."

Believe me they are going to try to blame the problem on it so you are just better off putting the stock box back on then they cant give you any problems better safe than sorry
