    With something that obvious, yes. But many believe you'd be covered by that law, if for instance, you do a tune and have engine issues. And the reality is YOU would be the one having to hire a lawyer and prove an ECU tune didn't cause the engine damage. And good luck with that. Any jury would most likely rule for the manufacturer, since it's a federal offense to tamper with the ECU, or modify the exhaust in any way, etc. As long as you modify your car knowing the risks, it's okay. But many do thinking the MMWA would jump to their defense in cases like that and always win. Doesn't work like that.

    Certainly wasn't meaning to imply that it's a "get out of jail free" card. There are limits to the scope it can be applied to, just like any statute. It does help keep the dealerships in check when they try to say something isn't covered though.
