Does Cold Air Intake Void Warranty?

If I installed a Airaid Cold Air Intake or something similar, would it void my extended warranty?

negative, unless they prove it to be defective and letting too much dirt in the engine.

US Code - Title 15, Chapter 50, Sections 2301-2312

Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) .

And you can always go back to the manufacturer of the air intake if it malfunctioned. In addition, if the air intake mfg is causing the problem, and a lot of people are having the same problem, then Chrysler could make the repairs and subrogate the cost back to whoever is causing the problem with the air intake.

Chrysler would not make the repairs under a warranty claim as that would be an admission of liability. Additionally, there would be no guarantee that any claim for subrogation would be paid.

I do agree that you might have a claim against the manufacturer if you can prove their product defective.

I think a CAI case would be easy to win if Chrysler wanted to blame it for some kind of engine damage. The CAI only puts the commander engine whether 3.7, 4.7 or 5.7 into the same HP range as the one used on a number of their other vehicles. I doubt they would have a leg to stand on. That said you likely would be out the repair and the lawyer initially until this gets settled.

My dealer sells aftermarket CAI for the Commander so they would have a hard time saying that they should not have been installed.
