Buick has voided my warranty because I have the Injen CAI installed. It's been on the car for several months and two trips to the dealer. Today is the third trip because I had a check engine light come on. They are blaming the CAI and won't even inspect the code without me fronting the money which I won't do. I check the code at Autozone and see what comes up.

Anyone else have any issues like this?

I do not believe a dealer can void a warranty for using a non-stock air intake or exhaust system after the cats?

You should check this out as there was a court case years ago about this, and it was decided in favor of the customer.

I will see if I can find out anything about this.

Thanks

Since the CAI moves the MAF anything related to the MAF is voided not the entire warranty. I'm getting the MAF P101 code so this would not be under warranty.
