Warranties are an interesting thing...
The manufacturer cannot deny a valid warranty claim unless they can show that an aftermarket part caused the failure.
You put enormous wheels on your SUV. You then start to eat wheel bearings or quickly wear out tie rods. That's not the manufacturer's fault.
You turbocharge or supercharge your car, you can expect the engine, clutch, flywheel, trans, driveshaft, diff, axle shafts, etc to all be denied coverage as ALL of those components will be heavily stressed by the additional torque. Now, if your power window breaks, that's not caused by the turbocharger, that should be covered.

Cause I work nights and lose track when I need to do oil changes since I turned off the "oil change light." I always think its the "Check engine" light when I drive in the middle of the night. Also at the time; I personally thought the dealer should only do the oil changes and they usually can't make appointments until four to five days.
Everything is back on track with the oil changes but still working on the maintenance. Kind of hard when dealerships charge over 500 bucks for 30k and I need the 370 for the month's car payment.
Don't lecture me about "Total Cost of Ownership" cause I already know. It's just I'm starting to pay rent for a apartment that I didn't even live in while buying my car back in November. But hopefully something will come up and back me back on track.

By the way....TRD Cold Air Intake actually increased my mpg to 23 miles per a tank; so it's not really pointless.
