There are certain kinds of aftermarket car or truck parts that strike fear into the hearts of customizers everywhere: the ones that just might invoke threats from your service advisor that your new vehicle warranty will be voided. Terminating warranty coverage has long been a favored tool for a number of automakers who didn’t want to have to deal with repair and service claims that they saw as being related to the installation of aftermarket parts. Typically, these components fell into the power-adder category, such as superchargers, turbo kits, exhaust headers or engine management software upgrades, but in some cases the presence of any accessories or aftermarket parts triggered the same type of stonewalling.
The good news for custom Toyota Tacoma owners is that Americans have been protected since 1975 against these types of warranty denial strategies by major vehicle brands. 1975 was the year that the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act came into effect, a federal law that we have covered extensively on our sister site, TundraHeadquarters.com.
