Does tinting the windows void a warranty from Toyota?
I was thinking about tinting the windows on my Toyota. However, I’m a bit worried that I’ll accidentally void the warranty. Will tinting the windows on my Toyota void my warranty?
Answer provided by
Tinting the windows may void your Toyota warranty. However, the devil is in the details.
According to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the simple act of tinting your windows cannot legally void your warranty, but how you tint the windows is the deciding factor.
The best idea is to call the dealership where you purchased the car. Oftentimes, dealerships have partnerships with shops that do this type of work. By asking, you’re assured you get the best workmanship without voiding your warranty. You can also take your car somewhere else, but removing the windows to do the tinting will likely void your warranty.
If you decide to go to your own shop, make sure that you collect the receipts, as Toyota will ask for them any time you get work done on your warranty.
