    Can someone tell me if this might be true or not? I was talking to another Tacoma owner last night as he was looking at my truck. I told him that I was thinking about having a sunroof put in. He told me that his dealership told him that if he had that done, he would void his factory warranty on his truck. Does anyone have any ideas about this? I am very curious. I planned on having this done but do not want to lose my warranty.

    Only if the roof collapses.

    Magnusson/Moss act essentially states that if a warranter is to deny warranty coverage on a product because of aftermarket alteration, the burden of proof is on the warranter to show that the alteration caused the damage/failure in question.

    In other words, if you have a sunroof put in and then the transmission shits, you're going to be fine. If the roof cracks in half, you'll probably be out of luck.

    x3 Magnusson/Moss is federal law.

    No modification that you do to your truck automatically voids the entire warranty. A voidable portion has to be related to the modification. So for example, they wouldn't cover a leak issue or a rust issue in the roof around the sunroof but it wouldn't impact something that's not related to the modification (e.g engine work).

    Yup, no issues unless the modification causes a failure.

    Don't expect Toyota to fix the roof when it leaks, but they can't void the warranty on the whole truck.
