Default Stage 2 and Warranty....

Both my local dealers said "Its mopar, so it wont hurt the warranty"

I remember some of you had problems with the dealer not covering the car because of the stage kits.



Should I try to get them to put it in writing that it wont hurt the warranty? Just in case?

Try, but I don't think you'll get it. From another post about Stage 1:
"Per their written warranty statement, you are on you own".
Incredible, but the Stage kits void the warranty.[:0]

That says the parts themselves have no warranty - the question is, what about the engine, transmission, etc.? Is the warranty still good on those? Suppose you "fry a valve" with a Stage kit - is the valve replacement covered by warranty?[:I]

Chrysler policy indicates the Stage Kits are not warranted. They further specify that anything that breaks as a result of the Stage Kits will not be covered under warranty. Remember Chrysler is the manufacturer; however for the most part their warranty is administered by their dealer network. So it would not hurt to try to have the dealer commit to more than this; but that would be an agreement between you and the dealer. It would not obligate Chrysler to pay for any non-warranted repairs.

I personally wouldn’t recommend installing any Stage Kit unless you are financially capable of, and mentally prepared to, pay for some repairs that may not be warranted. That isn’t saying they won’t be warranted but you just need to be prepared to deal with these on your own.

Here's a question I would like to ask the 'group'.

If the dealer installs a Stage I Turbo Kit at the time of your first oil change (3000 miles). Then, at the second oil change (6000 miles), the Autostick transmission needs to be replaced because a major torque converter failure; should Chrysler replace the transmission under their warranty?

I’ll be interested in your comments.

Larry

So far, he seems covered - Granted, not a torque converter failure, but could turn into one if hose comes off:

I say it should be a warantee item cause it is my understanding that unless there is a direct connection between stage 1 or 2 mods and the failure it is covered! What voids the warrantee is competition use! I am confused cause the stage 1 or 2 parts are not for calif street use so does that automatically void the warrantee? And if they get calif emissions certs as they are in the process now what does that mean for the warrantee?

Lets put it this way..they have your VIN # they know you got S1.. unless the dealer is cool with it or you have an agreement with them your pretty much screwd. But the plus side is that say you break a turbo,halfshaft,etc. this is the time to upgrade to a better stronger,lighter,faster piece. that is if you have the $$$$ and time to do so. I cant wait till my turbo takes a poo!

Chrysler doesn't give a crap about you or your warranty, they will try and screw you at anychance they can...you think they want to pay out money? I had to spring for a whole new manifold and turbo because the bearing seized...and apparently the problem was my Bloww Off Valve!!!!??? As soon as you write them a big fat check you're just another chump in their list of suckers...wow can you tell i'm bitter???
