Thumbs down falcon S ads - vioding warranty

Guys.. just thinking to myself the other day about ford vioding warranties when cars are put on the track.

WHEN.


on the Advertisement for the new falcon S, they show it on the track lined up against a v8 supercar and the it taking off.

Have they just done what they done with the car, what they tell us, (by vioding warranties) that the car is use in a non appropriate manner,

?

for those who have had warranty issues refused because you have taken your car down to calder and the likes.

Re: falcon S ads - vioding warranty

I don't think they can actually void your warrenty for such a thing anyway.
check with Ford, I remember reading up about it a while ago and I don't think they can do anything about it.
Also stop bitching about an actually decent ad from ford.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

I don't think he was bitching, just commenting on how Ford is using something that voids warranties in their ads.

I wonder if taking your Holden Adventra to Mars voids your warranty.

Now the proud owner of an AU xr8 220... OHHH YeAh

yes but comments like this are the reason we can't show people punting cars around on the road like lunatics on TV.

The car is sitting on the track then it goes **poof** I'd imagine making your car disappear in to thin air is more likly to void your warrenty than parking it on a race track.

Not exactly, there were laws brought in on that to try and discourage people to emulate their heroes. Remember that ad where the guy in the Green VY SS was tearing up the driveway dodging all the toys? That got canned cos it was thought it gave a bad impression of unsafe driving.
