The Fear of voiding your warranty with aftermmarket parts

I have occasionally read that some of you have taken off your aftermarket parts before you go to the dealership for warranty work. Some of you are afraid that it will void your warranty.
I was at the dealership today for warranty work and decided to speak with the service manager about this subject. I asked him if I WERE to purchase an aftermarket (non nismo and not installed by the dealer) CAI, throttle body spacer, and exhaust, would that void my warranty.
He Informed me that He has many new car and truck customers that install these type of parts on their vehicles and have never seen a direct problem arise from these.
He did not see a problem with anything I mentioned.
He gave an extreme example of a guy who put a nitrous system on his 2005 maxima.
He came in for a problem with his maxima and removed most of the nitrous system but left some of the injectors. They decided to go ahead and fix the problem once but told him they would not do it again.
This dealership seems very progressive. My advice would be to ask the service manager the same question I did and see how they respond.
If you don't get the response you want got to another dealership (if you are lucky to have another Nissan Dealership in your area.)
I guess I got lucky. The Dealership is Davis Moore in Wichita, funny thing is I did not buy my truck from them.

We have at least 4 that I can think of off the top of my head, and one just opened.
Have you tried Muncie? that is where i go and they said that mods are no problem as long as they are not a direct cause. I know its a bit of a drive but worth it. Great Service and People.
Hey I am From the South side to. What part? I am off of Southport on 37.

When I have a problem I call them, they bring me a loaner car and take my truck to fix it. so i dont have to driver over an hour to get my truck. The last time it was only gone for 24 hrs. 8O i got some POS buick.

What shop do you have problems with so I know who to steer clear of?
We are close then about 2-3 miles appart at the most. 8) We should have a couple of cold ones one night and talk Nissan.

I bought mine from Muncie. I dont think they would do the same thing for you being you did buy it else where. also keep in mind that the truck is still running on Temp plates(getting them today) so this may change soon.

Do let me know what you find i am thinking the next time i have a problem i may not call on Muncie but to a closer dealer.
Helping with mods Def. we could have done two trucks in 1.5hours on the grounding mod. :lol:
Oops sorry guys for highjacking this thread.

If you have free time this weekend and want some cold ones. just let me know i am thinking of Sat around noon.
