Can original manufacturer warranties be voided by using Timberline antifreeze coolant products?

Federal Law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 1975, prohibits a manufacturer or dealer from voiding your warranty just because you have chosen to use an aftermarket antifreeze/coolant in your automobile.

Requiring a consumer to buy a product from a particular company for use in your automobile in order to be eligible to receive protection under your owner’s warranty is an example of a “tie-in” provision.  “Tie-in” sales provisions are generally prohibited under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.  If federal warranty protection is denied, contact the FTC at (202) 326-3128 or www.ftc.gov.
