Extended Warranty and Cold Air Intake

By installing a CAI, will this void the warranty? I've read it does not and the dealer must prove without a doubt that the CAI was the main cause of the problem. I've searched high and low for confirmation. Just being precautious before going forward with the installation. I've found this forum to be helpful filled with useful information. Thanks for the help

AEM V2 or Injen RD

It depends on the dealer. If they think it voids the warranty, then they can deny warranty service. True Magnusson helps fight back, but how many people want to spend the time in arbitration/mediation. The burden of proof is on the dealer, but if they don't want to do the work, they just don't do it. You take it to another dealer and maybe they will. You should take the time to meet with the Service Manager at the dealership and talk to him/her. Hopefully they will be a car nut and will let you know their position on warranties and aftermarket parts.
Hope this helps.

My dealer said no problems when I asked about it. They're mod friendly

My SM is, but some of the Service Reps. (one lady specifically) is not. However, when I mentioned that the SM said what was done was fine, she shut the hell up.

You can always contact American Honda if you have trouble with the dealer. They are the FINAL authority as to what will be covered under warranty or not.

Thanks for the info. I'll get with the local dealer. If they say it does void warranty, I'll go to another dealer and another. Then, if shut down three times its probally wise to not waste money and not to install the CAI. I hope it doesn't.

I just got off the phone with my local dealership and per the service manager an aftermarket Cold Air Intake will not void the warranty unless it is the main cause of the problem. I'll be installing an Injen RD Black PowderCoated CAI. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Nice license plate 7810_Accord04Co

It all depends on the dealer. Heck I put H&R lowering springs on my car, the front driver side shock went and they still replaced it under warranty ( actually they replace both fronts ). Also have installed the AEM V2, Borla catback, 04 tl sway bar. Just try to work with the dealer. Some dealer are just asses.... I read a post from a guy getting his tranny looked at and the dealer told him that he need to take is CAI of put the original intake back in for them to be willing to do the recall work on the tranny. Now if that isn't a load a garbage I don't know what is. Good luck to ya
