Hiya Guys and Dolls,
Is it just me or are warranties nothing but a crock! I have had warranties and even paid for extended warranties and without fail there seems to be a clause that states it's doesn't cover this or that.
I blew the transmission out on my car. I checked my warranty to see if it had expired and i felt like i hit the jackpot with 3 more weeks left on it! I brought the car to the dealership and was told they would call me when car was ready.
I wasn't home for more than an hour when my phone rings and the mechanic says "sorry but you are not covered because the warranty does not cover damage due to an accident". I thought ok surely you called the wrong person here!
I said i don't think you are talking about my car cuz it was not nor never has been in an accident. He say's sorry but it has been determined your trans went out due to an accident so if you want it fix'ed it's going to cost $800!
I went flying into the dealership and demanded to talk to the manager. My car is on the lift and he looks at and says yes looks like there was some damage to this car and i'm afraid it's not covered. I said isn't that amazing with only 3 weeks left of my warranty, you found a way not to honor it!
After protesting for over a half hour the manager decides to go ahead and fix it under the warranty like he was doing me some huge favor. And believe it or not this is the second time they did this to me with a repair that was under warranty
I have had the same thing happen with my furnace that i paid extra for a warranty. Was told so sorry this part is not covered! I don't understand why they are so against honoring warranties when in fact the manufacture of the parts pay these companies so there is no loss to them.
I never buy warranties anymore. I don't think they are worth the paper they are written on.
Has anyone had their warranties not honored?
