Default New here warranty question....

Recently bought a 2014 Impreza with CVT only 16k on the odometer. I have a very small boat, aluminum, 14 feet that I have trailed for years to a lake with a 4 cylinder vehicle. The whole thing doesn't weigh more than 5 or 600 pounds. I'm wondering if I put a trailer hitch on this car if it would void the warranty in any way?

From what I have seen in the warranty threads you may be in for a debate if you end up having drivetrain issues. Just depends on the SOA rep for your area.

Technically they need to "prove" it caused the issue but it may require a trip to small claims court provided you have the evidence for your argument.

pretty sure the manual specifies a 'not to exceed' value for towing, and I think it's 1,000 pounds actually.
Plus, you don't have to tell anybody you towed with it right? People put tow hitches on their cars for bike racks.
