Does export void warranty?

Mon Dec 14, 2020 9:31 am

Hello! I have a 2016 Soul in the Cayman Islands. Battery degradation has taken me from 60+ miles at full charge down to the car not wanting to be above 77% charge (ie if charged to 100 will drop back down), which gives me approx. 38 miles.

Grand Cayman is small so it's still fine for getting around the more populated areas day to day, but mileage only goes one way...

I've been toying with shipping back to the US, its birthplace, to see about a warranty replacement. But I was wondering if its life outside the US has voided its warranty. Anyone encountered similar?

They might use it as an excuse, but only if they get to know the history. Why disclose it?

There is an anecdote about someone from Jordan doing exactly this. They shipped the car back to the United States to get the battery warranty.
