    I’m looking at purchasing a 2019 Tacoma but the dealership is saying that lifting it will void the factory warranty.

    My dealership is installing a levelling kit and offers a lifetime powertrain warranty...

    That dealership sucks. Lifting doesn't void warranty. If the aftermarket part causes an OEM part to fail, they won't replace the OEM part but still doesn't void warranty.

    What @whippersnapper02 said, plus you are not "lifting" you are upgrading your susspension. Lifting is when you body lift.

    I looked into "lemon law" and found out "offroad" vehicles are not covered. I also read where people were told their Jeep vehicles were not covered by warranty, because they actually took them offroad.

    I installed a leveling kit and my dealer hasn't mentioned anything about it.

    Toyota is staring to say that lifting their trucks can effect the TSS-P and making people sign waivers if the system fails or doesn’t work its on you. They are even trying to say just going up one tire size is voiding any warranty on those parts. Something to think about with these new vehicles and the TSS-P

    I guess if you went higher I could understand the TSS not working properly but mine has continued to work just fine

    So has mine. They had a recall on the system and a lot of dealers weren’t fixing it if the truck was lifted or even had larger tires on it. They were making people sign a waiver before they would do the recall. The waiver said you released all liability of the system not working currently because of aftermarket parts.

    So if you have a 3” lift and then upgrade from the standard Off Road grill to the Pro grill....Wouldn’t you have effectively removed the delta and placed the sensor close to its original location? Just a thought.

    I have the stupid “factory leveling kit” at this point, so I will be interested to see if they try to say anything. May be hood that I put off new suspension for a couple of months :).

    Random thoughts.... call me crazy but doesn't the TRD Pro ride an inch or two higher than other models of Tacoma... and I'm guessing that it also has the TSS-BS?

    Therefore I call shenanigans on Toyota for saying this stupid crap about voiding warranty and making people sign waivers...

    How on earth did the human race survive the last 100+ years without vehicles that try to control themselves???

    I’m assuming our parents. Remember you were probably like me and rode standing in the seat or in the back of a truck. I’m surprised we’re not more screwed up than we already are. This whole world is messed up imho. You have to use brakes and parallel park. I totally don’t get all the sensors and bs they put on new vehicles.

    What they're really trying to do is get the sensors to work in all weather no matter what. They can't figure out how to get them to work on rainy or snowy days. Self driving cars dont work in bad weather strictly because the sensors don't work. Self driving cars are only good for nice sunny days, till you hit a sunspot, then opps, sorry my computer crashed youre car.

    Government raises safety requirements more and more, just like mpg requirements...I wish Trump would reverse some of that...

    Before you install a lift kit, drive the truck for a month or so. I thought I would want to lift my '19. But after having it a month, nope, no need. She's tall enough. Of course it depends on the mods you want to do.
