first of all, where were your receipts?

second, what exactly was it that was photographed?

third, why don't you tell us the name/location of this place?

if my sti struts are squeaky and they find receipts for condoms and a box of lubricant, will they deny my suspension warranty too for "abuse"?

Good question. Instead of a warranty denial you may just get advice like: "Give her soft kisses on the lips, knead the buttocks, play with her a little first. That way you won't have to waste your money on lube."

We I would like to rebuddle what I said about taking my car back I love the hell out of it but just pissed I didn't talk to the dealer prior to buy in the exhuast and stuff.

I did call wagner subaru in OH this morning said " I have an 06 wrx TR for about 1 year and been thinking about getting an exhaust and turbo timer on my car but heard from a friend that kind of stuff could void my warranty." the tech guy said "If you got the spt exhaust you wouldn't have any problems with warranty and the turbo timer dosn't effect warranty at all." So then asked him straight up about a different brand exhaust if I would have warranty issues/problems he said must likely yes.

Having receipts in your car for E85 does not mean you used it on your car!!. You could have purchased E85 in containers to make crack or whatever. It shouldn't be evidence that can be held against you. Now if they find E85 in your tank, that’s another deal. BTW I don't agree with complaining for voided warrant service if you don't follow the direction given in the owner's manual.

They have to prove that the mod damaged the car and with out that they do not have a case.. what this boils down to is your word against theres and a lawyer may need to get involved. i sure as hell bet that if a lawyer called and wanted to know the skinny on the issue they would back off.

I bet they wouldn't.

The Dealer and SOA has lawyers retained for them and I can personally attest that if that approach is used, any work on the car is pretty much stopped and the dealer is done helping the customer. In fact all communication to the dealer from the customer is stopped and the customer should be directed to his attorney and the attorney's will handle it.

If you plan to use the word lawyer, you better be ready to hire him, because they already have lawyers retained and will work for them when the phone call is made. If you cry wolf, you better have seen one.

Here is my answer.

Any aftermarket modification not approved by the manufacturer does increase your risk in voiding warranty claims.

My clutch is starting to slip in my 05 around 29k miles. Car is 100% stock so hopefully I can get it replaced under warranty. If they claim abuse I will be stunned, I never race or track it unless you count driving on the capital beltway racing.

That made it difficult to get the transmission on my 03 repaired. It really was faulty. When they pulled it apart they said the synchro was machined wrong or something. It would grind going into first gear at stand still! The local dealer wouldn't help me. They also wouldn't help me with the fact that the car shut off randomly on the freeway... I had to drive to Subaru of Santa Cruz to take care of both. That was a pretty scary drive.

Unless you lock your glove box and they break into it, shops are allowed to get out your owners manual, look for oil change receipts and what not.

+1 for firefox. Makes me an awesome speller now.
Yeah, let me find out my dealership is opening my glovebox without my permission and that'd be the last time I went there. If they need to record maintenance then they should let me know so I can leave my owners manual on the seat. If they need any information they simply need to ask. Sorry buddy but oil change receipts and owners manuals are not excuses for a dealership to open my glove box and snoop around as they see fit. To suggest that I must lock my glove box for a service visit is outrageous, the technicians and staff should be professional enough to ask for what they need in advance and respect my property/privacy.

SOA is not the worst or best when it comes to warranty work, it all depends on your dealership. All the manufacturers are out to make a buck fellas, and if that means stepping on your toes to do it then they don't care. Just pray you get a good dealership.

How it works: they lawyers win. Everyone else looses.

And this doesn't sounds like anything close to class action material.

I work in a body shop and we have to get in glove boxs all the time for paint codes on certain vehicles. It's just part of the repair so take your personal belongings out before taking it in for service and you have nothing to worry about.

If customers were honest that might work.

How many times do you think I hear that it was maintained, yet they cannot produce a single receipt in 55k miles?

How do they know that those time slips belong to you where you were driving your car at the track. does it say anything about your make/model car on the slips? if not they would become a buddies that left them in there when racing his car and he was showing them to me.

That is the problem. Probably 1 out of 20 are honest. The rest try to hide their modifications...and their stupidity.

You put E85 in your STI? And they still warrantied your turbo? Quit your bitchin and consider yourself blessed....if what i read was accurate, you're a dope and I would ahve charged you extra just for puttin E85 in the STi. If it was time slips... then once again, shame on you for being stupid. And if its none of those, then I'm a moron that cant read...
