Default void warranty??

I just bought my car from a dealer(not subaru) if the previous owner had the car modded and put it back to stock. Then I bought it does the warranty carry over to me? Meaning did their actions/ reflash of ecu void my warranty as a new owner?

Can a claim be denied? Yes. SOA can deny any claim if they find abuse even on a stock car. Will a future claim when made be denied? No one knows.

Are you asking because of the trans. issue? If anything, no gear oil= bring it back to the Chevy dealer anyway. That wouldn't be a warranty issue anyway. They need to own up...

This...every manufacturers do the same. That is the reason why you buy CERTIFIED USED vehicle, if you choose to buy used. Otherwise, you are buying it at your own risk.

I dont know about you, but for me, if.

1/ i care about warranty, i would buy new...which i prefer

2/ want to build, and mod it my own, i would buy used...which i have been there, done that....not gonna do again.

I dont see the point to buy used, and still care about warranty...unless it is some family haulers no one care to mod it...say a camry, accord, rx, mdx...etc

Before everyone jumps on you over 'you can't void warranties..' Yes, you can. Lets say previous owner swapped the gauge cluster. Instant warranty void. 100% GONE!
