Service in Southern California

Planning on modding my car soon. Any recommendations of saab service centers where they are lenient about mods since i will eventually bring my car in for oil changes?

Should i even worry about saab trying to void my warranty?

Re: Service in Southern California

Since you have the turbo timer installed already they may use that as a reason to void your warranty? Someone else may chime in with a better answer. I might wait a while myself before any major mods.

Hopefully some mechanics dont know what a turbotimer is and think its just an audio addon.

Re: Service in Southern California

That's actually a good idea to tell them. I bet most of the Saab mechanics have not worked too much on these cars to notice what it is.  Hmm, I do like the boost gauge function...

Re: Service in Southern California

They should only void your warranty if it is discovered that you have a problem caused by your modification. A turbo timer doesn't really hurt anything in your car. You should be ok.

Re: Service in Southern California

Per the law in order to not honor your warranty (lets not even get into "voiding" it) they have to prove that the modification caused the failure.  If you have an upgraded turbo I wouldn't count on them covering internal engine damage, but they can't say that your seat broke because you put a boost controller or something.

In reality many dealers are uninformed as to the law or sometimes will lie becuase paying for service work out of pocket is way more profitable for the dealer than warranty work.
