One of the most common questions we get at Certified Sounds is “Will installing this product void my new vehicle warranty”? The short answer is no. Way back in 1974, Congress passed a law – the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act – to address this very issue. Car dealers at that time were telling people that their new car warranties were voided because they had had aftermarket parts installed in their vehicles. But car dealers have short memory spans and are again using scare tactics on their customers. Here is a link to the FTC’s site that talks about this very issue:
Now, there are some important things to know about this law, and why it is good to choose a reputable shop like Certified Sounds for your upgrades. Let’s start with the products we sell in our store.
Product Selection Is Important
Consumer electronics come in a wide variety of price points and quality. We spend hundreds of hours every year researching and trying out the products we want to sell our clients. Until a product gets the Certified Sounds seal of approval, it is not offered for sale in our store. You can rest assured that the products we sell are the most-reliable, best-performing on the market. This is very important because, if the product installed in your vehicle causes damage, your warranty may be suspect, even with the the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act in place. In the long run, it is always less expensive to buy a better product the first time around.
Quality Installation Is Important
The second, equally important item is the quality of the installation. An inferior installation may also cause damage to your vehicle and jeopardize your warranty. That will never be a concern for a client of Certified Sounds, since our installation team is highly skilled in working on modern electrical systems. In fact, it is not uncommon for repair shops and car dealers to look to us for diagnosing electrical problems related to aftermarket electronics. Our standards not only meet but often exceed those of the car manufacturer, so you can be confident your installation will give you years of trouble-free use.
Car Dealers Trust Us With A New Vehicle Warranty And So Should You
In our opinion, one of the greatest compliments we get is being trusted by car dealers to perform work for their clients. It is very common for a dealer to ask us to install electronics in one of their vehicles that did not come factory-equipped. If a dealer trusts us with their customers, you know our reputation is secure.
