so i goto westhouston subaru dealership today then a friend of mine from the regular dealership i goto , will not be named, calls me says that the westhouston dealership, they are going to void my warranty due to after market parts........now a subaru rep is coming to see if my valve cover leak was due to my parts.... i have stock headers and i never touched my headers so, i educated myself on the magnus moss act and any tips from you guys or anything at all will help me......cause they kept telling me that they dunno if i touched the headers i said i didnt but they were asses to me.......

thank you

EDIT: the westhouston rep told me"we are going to void your engine and tranyn warranty" the my bro calls, not fahd, and tells them all the stuff of the magnus moss act and now there bringing a subaru rep

i have had this problem with this leak since my car was stock, i just dunno what to do

westhouston was gonna charge me $900 jsut to look at my car see what was leaking? i was like WTF :confused: .....i took it to another one and there checking it for free they said ill prolly have to pay for it to get fixed but i will not go down without a fight

You cannot possibly be *****ing about engine warrenty not being covered with the mods you have. They shouldn't and wont cover it. If you had the problem stock, which they wont believe you if you say that (hell, most of us probably dont) you should have had it addressed then.

if they didnt do it right the first time then why did you take the car from them and not return it back immediately.
:confused1

hopefully they wont but thats going to be a tough fight for ya im thinking.

regardless its your fault for not addressing the problem prior to modding. if youre SOL now...well..youre just SOL.

thats probably going to be the general concensus.

good luck

dude... just watch out for the tall skinny guy with the glasses and black hair. I think he works in the finance/warranty department. He's an a-hole.

I was just looking for their email address myself awhile ago because I want to ask them if I put an STi Axle-back on my car, if it would void my warranty.

I kinda don't want to install it now until I get it in writing that it's ok.

Anyways, good luck with your situation.

:rotfl: :rotfl: you said the word "anus" :rotfl: :rotfl:


good luck with the warranty shiz. You should've returned your car to stock if you were going to have them look at something like that.

Its your word against their's about the car having problems when it was stock, and now that it is heavily modified...I doubt they are going to see it in your favor.

Good luck though...

I did it... I just called West Houston Subaru. The guy from the service dept. was really cool. I told him that I own an '03WRX and I was planning to put an STi Axle-back.

He said that "as long as the cats are intact, it will not void my warranty." He also said for me to "enjoy the new sound. You'll love it!"

Really, everyone I've dealt with over there are cool.... except for that guy with the glasses who works in the finance/warranty dept. He lowballed me on my trade-in and didn't budge.
:mad:
