When it comes to the discussion of aftermarket parts and car warranties, the team at California Car Sounds and Tint near San Jose can help provide clarity. Our staff has been upgrading vehicles with sound systems, remote car starters, radar detectors and much more for several decades. We got our start working with local car dealerships, so we know which options are available for your vehicle and how to install them properly so as not to affect your vehicle warranty. Read on for a full explanation.
Will Upgrades Affect my Warranty?
If such upgrades as a security system, window tint or a subwoofer are installed and integrated into your vehicle properly, they will not affect your new car warranty. With that said, improper installation can lead to problems. Imagine that you’ve chosen a shop based on its offer of $99 window tint. Imagine that you find out afterward that one of the defroster lines in the rear window doesn’t work. This would be a good example of something that isn’t covered by the vehicle warranty. Hopefully, whoever caused the problem would pay for the repairs.
Expert Installation Prevents Car Warranty Hassles
With well more than a century of combined experience among our top staff members, we’ve seen a lot of great workmanship and a lot of poor decisions made when adding aftermarket upgrades to vehicles. Understanding the electrical, data communication and mechanical systems in your car or truck allows us to design upgrade solutions that work in harmony with the vehicle to deliver the functionality you want.
Each aspect of the installation, from where we choose to install components to where we run wiring for radar detectors and audio systems, is planned and executed in a way that delivers optimal performance and longevity without affecting the functionality or safety of the vehicle. We solder all the electrical connections we make and protect them with heat-shrink tubing, premium vinyl electrical tape, split loom and automotive-grade fabric and fleece tapes.
We don’t guess. We don’t take shortcuts. We perform every task to only the highest of standards every time.
Quality Equipment Eliminates Problems
The products we sell here at California Car Sounds and Tint have been chosen for their performance and reliability and the quality of their design. There are less expensive solutions available, but when it comes to ensuring the reliability and performance of your vehicle, we never take shortcuts that could affect your car warranty.
Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
Created by Congress in 1975, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act governs the terminology and information provided in association with warranties on consumer goods exceeding $5 in value. Specific to our industry, warranties may not state or imply that a consumer must buy or use an item or service from a particular company to maintain warranty coverage. The intention here is to allow third-party automotive centers to service and maintain a client’s vehicle without affecting the warranty.
