same goes for rx8's!!!
How f'd up is that?I get a call from the service manager yesterday and it turns out that the District Rep has photographs along with dates and times of me racing my car at the track! They knew down to the very date, minute, and location that I ran my car down the strip. I have not personally seen the photographs YET, but they hit the nail right on the head with the date and time so I highly doubt they are bluffing--otherwise, it would be one hell of a good guess!
My dealer Pape Mitsubishi has been great, the GM, Sales Manager, Lead Tech and my Sales Guy always come out and talk to me when I drive in for regular maintence, they've offered to install mods for me and have recommended places when they can't do something themselves. I do get questions if I've raced it, etc., but I don't think it's to void my warranty. Besides, I almost have 15K on my stock tires and they're only about 2/3 used up, so that proves that I haven't been racing my EVO because they only have a rated treadlife of 160. I haven't modified my car yet, unless you count cruise control and a turbo timer as modifications, I don't expect Mitsubishi to pay for something I broke as a result of racing or modifications, but I do expect them to fix something that was poorly designed and or defective through no fault of my own. I have yet had a problem with my car in the 4 months I've owned it. A year ago, when my SVTF was 4 months old, I was putting up for the winter because Ford couldn't fix the problems with my car. Needless to say, I more happy with the reliability of my EVO compared to my SVTF.Disclaimer: All Mitsubishi corporate employees, Mitsubishi dealerships, Mitsubishi service personnel or employees, family, friends, or acquaintances thereof: This in no way constitutes an admission or acknowledgement of tampering, modification, usage, or alteration of any vehicle in my posession or component thereof in such a fashion as to void, cancel, deny or otherwise refuse service on any service contracts, warrantees, or recall notices covering said vehicles.
