Driveline Warranty for Performance Packages & Modified Vehicles

Posted


"Will these performance upgrades void my manufacturer warranty???"


This is a very common question we get asked at LSX Performance Parts.

Lets face it - Voiding your manufacturers warranty is the biggest reason to hold off on those upgrades you have always planned on doing to your pride & joy.

Fact is, ANY performance upgrade you do will run the risk of voiding your current manufacturers warranty & therefore leave you exposed to pay for potentially costly mechanical costs.

By modifying your car whilst under manufacturer warranty, The insurer/underwriter will mitigate their risk by enforcing that you have voided your warranty terms & conditions which will allow the manufacturer to wipe their hands of any claims that may arise.


The most popular performance upgrades are:

  • Intake Upgrades
  • Exhaust Upgrades
  • Camshaft Packages
  • Cylinder Head upgrades
  • Stroker Engines
  • Boost upgrades for supercharged engines | LSA

So, This leaves us with two options -

  1. Understand that the performance package that you are planning on doing is going to void your warranty. You decide to go ahead with it & enjoy the upgrades, Knowing that you are not covered.
  2. Weigh up your risk & choose to wait until the manufacturer warranty expires & do the upgrades the second the warranty expires

These have been your only two options - Until now...

LSX Performance Parts have been working hard to present our customers with another option.
