so I took my truck in for the cps recall.

Yesterday I took my truck in for the cps recall, and everything went fine until I went to sign the papers and leave. The Service Manager pulled me aside and informed me that they were going to nullify my warranty because of the modified air filter. It was at this point that I looked at him and asked if he really thought there was a warranty on a 11 year old truck with 162k miles on the truck. He gave me the most confused look I think I have ever seen, and proceeded to apologize for not thinking about the age or miles on the truck. I just thought this was funny.

99 F350 CCLB 67k miles.

Sold: 01 Dodge cummins ECLB a few more mods to 353hp

Sold: 97 F250 SCLB, 5 speed 2wd. minor mods to 327hp

See a pattern? next I will have to find one of those 6 door jobbers...

Thats awesome! Whats even better then that is the tech that did the recall would even say anything about it. But as in many dealers anybody can do the recall and usually its a quick service guy that does it. Still funny though!

My question is... Why is that service manager a idiot? I mean if your truck was still under warrenty and he would of said that to you would you have gone back to that dealership? He would of lost a costumer... What an idiot...

your FTS or ford rep has the power to decide . not your svc manager or warranty clerk. I've worked in dealerships for 21 yrs and have seen alot of cases like this, even if you have aftermarket parts on a vehicle that's under warranty. unless the tech can prove the non oem part caused the failure of another part or system the dealer is forced to repair the vehicle under warranty. I have seen svc managers try this bully tactic with customers and they're usually not around for very long, especially after the customer contacts their manufacturers 1-800 customer service line. but then again most customers have never opened their owners manual much less seen the toll free number in the back of it

Google, Magnuson-moss warranty act. if your a tech in a dealership you need to read this and possibly pass along to your svc. manager
