    Porsche Warranty Warning !!

    Hi Guys, just had my Porsche 111 point check done for the new Porsche Warranty and it Failed.

    Due to none Genuine Parts the car has to have 100% porsche parts

    Admittedly I have none standard wheels/tires but it would have failed if I’d had an Ipod wired in or another make of stereo/sports Exhaust. So Porsche say

    Wheels/tires aren’t even covered, never have been ...

    Really angry about this as it’s passed 2 previous warranty checks

     

     

    Porsche approved wheels and tires have been required for extended warranty or used car certification for about 2 deacades.

    Hi Mike,

    My Porsche service guy saids this reflects the new Warranty and porsche have become alot tighter on third party patrs on newley covered cars.

    As i said before it was'nt a problem 2 years on the trot but the new warranty changes things.


    Re: Porsche Warranty Warning !!

    Interesting!

    I'm visiting my dealer this afternoon and I'll get them to explain the new details to me.

    Re: Porsche Warranty Warning !!

    That's absolutely right.  I posted on another thread that my OPC wanted me to remove my hard-wired speed camera detector.  They relented when I pointed out that they fitted it themselves.  If I had fitted it myself, or had another party do it, the car would have failed under the new warranty T & C's.

    Another thing to be wary of is the PSE 'always on' mod!  Make sure you reverse the process before the car is tested. Smiley

    So, the moral of the story is if it's anything they didn't install then you better put it back to the way it was bought or risk them denying.

    Its worse than that in the UK, although i still think there is huge variability and ambiguity between OPCs..

     

    If they check your brakes and they look newer than they should for the mileage, and they have no record of Porsche changing them (even if they are Porsche items) then you invalidate the warranty.  So no independent garage or DIY work allowed anymore.

     

    Wonder if they can tell if you changed a blown bulb and whether thats OK ??


    Re: Porsche Warranty Warning !!

    That seems not to be the case in the U.S., or it may depend on the dealer. Only the wheels seem to be an issue for the standard 4 year and extended 6 year CPO warranty on used cars. My dealer actually performed an aftermarket installation of bigger BorgWarner/KKK turbos and GIAC chip on my 997TT, as well as iPod integration, and I have been back even recently and everything is covered under warranty.
