Re: [DML] Re: DMCH performance exhaust (rust issue - need opinions)

Speaking of...I have a similar problem with my Eibach suspension 
(banging and clunking, etc.) that I believe DMCH should look into and/or 
rectify as being a problem. I have sent numerous emails to DMCH about 
it. In the beginning, I did get a response from them and talked to a 
higher authority on the issues I was having. When speaking with DMCH on 
the phone, they were very polite and understanding, but that was about 
all I got. At the DCS, I had a representative of DMCH take a ride with 
me and he said that he understands what my problem is and told me to 
have my shock tower bent out a bit to remedy the issue. That option 
didn't sit well with me. Since that time, nothing has been done to fix 
it and my suspension has become worse. I have sent DMCH a number of 
emails (also asking about the headlight switch) and have not yet had a 
response or the courtesy of a phone call. Though DMCH did email me on 
4/29, saying they weren't ignoring me, I have yet to hear anything back 
since, even though I have sent another email reminding them of that last 

Reading this post on the exhaust, dealing with my suspension problem and 
hearing other stories makes me concerned. I only hope that behind the 
scene, these issues are being worked on. At the very least, DMCH, 
please, keep the lines of communication open to those of us that voice 
our issues with you.

Because it is common knowledge that if you sell a crappy product, then don't take action to correct it, that is just plain bad business.  No business, to my knowledge, wants to be known for selling crappy products for an exorbitant price.

>What were the warranties from DMCH when you purchased the exhaust? Were they in writing? Do obligations under that warranty belong to DMCH or Jet-Hot? It is common practice to promote manufacturer warranties that do not obligate the seller to anything. If you want dealer or distributor warranties (swap outs, etc.) you usually have to pay something for it.Harold McElraft - 3354--- In dmcnews@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, "coreysmoo" <coreysmoo@...> wrote:>> In August of last year, I bought DMCH's performance exhaust system. > I have no problem with the system itself and love it.
