@MADNESS Autoworks , I am in the market for an exhaust for my 2020 Ti Sport, but when I spoke to my service tech today, he said it will void the manufacturer warranty on the car.
That comment is the only thing holding me back. What has been your experience?

Your dealer is ignorant or lying. Kinda. Federal law prohibits the manufacturer from denying warrany repair just because you install an aftermarket part - they have to prove it caused the problem. If you install an exhaust system and your shocks fail, your warranty will fix the shocks. If you burn a valve in the engine FCA could deny a warranty claim if they think the exhaust damaged the engine. It would be a huge stretch to prove that the exhaust caused the burned valve, but you might have to go through arbitration to get a definitive answer.

All that said, there are hundreds of thousands of aftermarket exhaust systems on many many motor vehicles, and engine damage is extremely rare - its usually caused by other mods the owners made. I wouldn’t be afraid to install one if I wanted the loud noise.

Hello thesassyindian,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

In general basic bolt on mods like an intake and exhaust are normally regarded as warranty safe, and the dealership would have to prove that the modification led to the problem.

With that said, every dealership and ever service department is different. The safest way is to open a dialog with the Service Manager and see how they feel about bolt on mods like an exhaust.

Some are okay with mods provided they do the installation and some are not.

We have worked with several dealerships in the past and they will install our products onto customer cars often.

If you would like feel free to reach out to us directly (562) 981-6800 and I can get you in touch with one of our more Senior Techs who help answer your questions.

My dealership installed this system on mine and said warranty was not affected at all by it.

I love this set up!!!! Its just a tad aggressive on cold start so watch if you live in a condo, but zero drone on driving at any speed.
I did ask two of my local dealerships if they could install a bolt-on cat-back exhaust. They both agreed to do the install, but said it would void the vehicle warranty.
