umm...... imho it would be hard for them to PROVE it that way. warped rotors are usually caused by 1) pads that are to hard and 2) uneven temperatures on the rotors.SuperDave said:I had problems with my rotors and I have read several other posts about rotor problems. I think a dealer would jump on the fact that after market brake lines were used and caused issues with the rotors, thereby getting out of warranty work. Since I have the 7 year/100,000 mile extended warranty, I guess I won't be getting the Comptech brake lines anytime soon.
i totally agree with you. winning it ultimately doesn't mean it's worth it. it's always nice if you have a dealer around you that really knows about cars and a service manager that knows about customer service. for the record that's still missing around here tooSuperDave said:I see your point about them having a hard time proving it.
Unfortunately, I have known dealers that use every little bit of an excuse to get out of warranty repairs. The truth is they don't have to prove anything. If they deny service then we can go to Acura USA and complain and then maybe go to court but that is just a hassle for us not them. Now I haven't had any problems with an Acura dealer but I just don't trust even the slightest chance of them claiming we modified the brake system and now it isn't under warranty.
If I get a chance, I might try to contact Acura USA (Honda) to see what they say. However, if anyone else has contacted them before, please feel free to contact them for me.
