Exclamation Paint your GFX at your OWN risk!

The Mfr of the GFX states that if you paint them, you void the warranty. Just an FYI...

What part of the Manufacturer warranty does it violate exactly?
Why would these not fall under the GM warranty since they are being sold and represented by GM?

Painting doesn't impact HOW they are mounted? What is it?

What if the dealer paints them for you?

It says that painting them is considered modifing the part, hence voiding the warranty.

Do you have a copy/link about the reason.

Do they give a specific and logical reason why it would void the warranty?

I have the bulletin # 09-08-51-002. I'll try to find the actual link.

I'd like to see how the Magnuson-Moss Act interprets that

Just read this:

Quote:
Ground effects (P/Ns 92207441 and 92208008) The painting of these components before or after installation is considered a modification.

Modifying the components will void the accessory's warranty coverage.

Please advise the customer that these parts are not paint to match.
Sounds like one more reason not to pay for these parts...

I guess they don't want to sell many. That just came off my future mod list.

I didn't care for it from the beginning, but when it matches the body color of the car it looked more intergrated. Now I know it's not for me. I've seen a couple of dealers that have already done it. Oops on them! I guess the supplier for GM will come out later with these painted, and at a higher cost.
