Yeah, I found that, but my player wont' play it, so I had to read the transcript. Basically, if they can prove you added HP, the service writer will deny warranty work. Can't really say that i blame them, but it sucks for us "recreational users".use the search function
dmax power-up kits
Defintately an iteresting video...That stuff about the Jan 07 Dmax sounds interesting. Wonder if they add stuff like that to fail early once performance upgrades are installed. Also wonder how long it will take before someone on here bypasses that too!
My statement (ok, my rant) wasn't supposed to be knocking GM for doing what they're doing, its just about the sad state that this situation has come to. The average customer who buys the truck because it does what he wants (in stock form) has to pay for those who decide to mod their truck and pawn their self-induced problems off on everyone else that buys a GM product (by trying to fraud GM, intentionally or not, into paying for the repairs their mod's caused or contributed to). Not only that, but we're all paying for GM to train their techs to be detectives to try and uncover this fraud. You are paying for the Banks/Bullydog/etc. -vs- GM battle.What other dollars would they use?
Why should they warranty something that someone screws up? Where do you fairly draw the line? If the truck wasn't engineered for it and they didn't represent that it was when you bought it why should they cover it with warranty?
I bet that day is coming soon. I remember hearing that the auto industry is the single biggest user of computer chips in the world.since there is no EULA that we signed when we purchased our trucks that gave GM any rights to the hardware.
Why? I'm not racing or pushing excess power... my engine rarely sees the high side of 2,000rpm.Rich,
Good luck. Your gonna need it.
The same reason - too much is never enough. The current vettes are 400hp base, but there are quite a few 800-1000hp cars out there.I just can't understand why anyone wants to increase the power in these trucks anyway. My truck has an unbelieveable amount of power, if i had wanted something that would fly down the road like a jet i would have kept the vette that i traded. The only downside i saw to the HD were the wimmpy tires which i replaced with 265's. Just my opinion.
