Does a Catback exhaust void the Subaru warranty?

I’m considering putting a Catback exhaust system in my 2020 Subaru, but I don’t want it to cause issues with the warranty. Will adding it void the warranty, or will it still be valid?

Lucky for you, adding a Catback exhaust will not void your Subaru warranty. Most aftermarket exhaust systems are thought to void the original warranty on a vehicle, as dealers will decline to perform engine maintenance. However, it’s not true.
Technically, installation of aftermarket parts will only affect your vehicle’s warranty for those parts and any systems affected by it. For example, a claim for a burnt exhaust valve may be denied, but it shouldn’t affect the warranty on rust perforation or your infotainment system.
Similarly, manufacturers can deny a warranty claim if the cause of damage is directly related to the aftermarket part. But in general, adding an exhaust system shouldn’t void your warranty.
If you’re unsure, contact your local Subaru dealer and speak to a representative about your warranty’s conditions.
