    cliffs:
    GM denies blown motor warranty because the car was in competition mode and it had racing seats, a tow ring, and rubber in the fender wells from the stock tires , which apparently caused the motor to blow up.

    warranty void button :rofl::rofl:

    I'm sorry sir, your advanced racing seats reduced the weight of your car and caused your motor to blow. I'm sorry but you must pay for all repairs. :rofl:

    They have to prove that the modifications caused the failure of the warrantied part. There is a legal precedence*sp but I dont remember the name of the case that set it off hand.

    If you use a gun as it was designed, does that mean you get a get out of jail free card?

    I guess we've heard it with every manufacturer for as long as I can remember. Unless you're buying some sort of motorsport vehicle, why would anyone expect for their warranty to be honored for their STREET CAR if it's used at the track?

    lol at ricer TS trying to compare this to the GT-R's shit

    this incident is total bullshit, but voiding a warranty due to someone racing a car is a little more understandable than voiding a warranty for turning off launch control :rofl:

    still, this is fucking gay of GM

    so again, your warranty is void if you do exactly what the car was built for? If you drive competitively or race on the street, that means your warranty should be void too correct?

    Actually they expect old people to buy them and drive 5 under.

    Those are the only people I see.
