    Re: Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act

    I just wanted to add to it, I've tried using this when I first bought my wrangler because I was having one issue after another with it, the act only applies if you buy it from that cars maker, ie buy jeep from a jeep dealership. I bought mine from a Nissan dealership in a weird mix up( long story) also it has to be applied to a certified pre owned if bought used.


    Just a tip if you by used get the extended warranty, mine on my jeep unlike the one from Chrysler is not affected by doing mods unless they can prove the mod itself caused the issue

I rock a 2.5" lift, 33" mud terrains, stock stubby bumper with superwinch, custom made d-ring mounts, Elevated offroad foglight and skid plate. entire tub bedlined on the inside along with the grill, windshield brackets, and door trim. custom mountes gerry can, and hi lift jack.... plus some other stuff, and theres still a HUGE list to go through!!![/FONT][/COLOR]

      chrysler canada put a full restriction on mine,because of a stupid dealer close to my home.my spider gears were stripped in the rear end,the dealer took pictures of the rear end and sent them to chrysler.i had dynatrac diff covers and because of that and my lift they put the restriction.now every time i go to the dealer a have to try to prove that the breakage is not caused by my mods...wich i lose this argument all the time.even for abs sensors...not covered...stupidity,and all over that dealership ther is posters of jeeps in water or on rocks.....

          You guys need to find a Mod Friendly Dealer.
          Check around and talk to other Jeep people in your area before you take it in for service.
          In Southern California the best I've found is Orange Coast Jeep in Huntington Beach. Not very close to my home but they have never questioned my mods.

              Aside from the modifications, the Magnuson/Moss Act also states that if a company insists on you using their product or it will void the warranty, then said company must supply the product.

              This has been inferred many times when a dealership insists that you MUST use their brand of oil filter, oil or coolant vs. a product that has the same specifications. When they tell you that you must use their brand of coolant or oil filter or it will void the warranty, say great then you must provide it at no charge. This IS the entire arguament of having the OEM have specifications for things like oil and coolant so you can use a selection of the aftermarket as long as it meets the correct specification(s).
