That is what I like to do…. But is saving 200 worth it if the dealer “may” decline warranty work due to the DIY work?That sounds odd that they could just bar owners from doing it ourselves..Buy Acura transmission oil and keep the receipt, it's not hard to do at all on the double clutch 8 speed. It's literally like changing the car oil except there's no filter and the fill hole is a little tricky to get at.
I'm not aware of the rules in the US but up here in Canada I know that dealers cannot deny warranty claims if you have receipts that the maintenance was done. This law was brought in more for quick lube places but if I have receipts of parts and oil bought from Acura, I can't see that being any different. I imagine the US has something like this as well?That is what I like to do…. But is saving 200 worth it if the dealer “may” decline warranty work due to the DIY work?
