Service Contract, Extended Warranty Rip-Offs, Read This First
This review is based on 1 fact. Yes, there are many other reasons to base the review on. But here is one more you may want to know...
"of like kind and quality"
Don't know what exactly that means? Well, your warranty company and your mechanic do.
IT MEANS "USED" Try LKQ part.
Yes, they will replace your failing parts with parts that have not yet failed. The same as going to the junkyard and getting a salvaged part.
Although, in the same sentence they state that the replacement parts may be "new, remanufactured" there is no way you are going to get a new part and there is no way that you will get a remanufactured part even if that part is only a little more money. Not going to happen.
This all means they will leave you holding the bag when the "used" part once again fails. Out of warranty now, OH WELL.
They will send out an adjuster which may take 2 days, then you and the mechanic still need an OK from the main office. So now 3 or 4 days. Read the fine print and you will see this qualifies you for only 1 day of car rental. Not 5 as stated in your book. Read it! Any more days require proof that the part was waited for in which case you will get one more day. Still not 5 days huh.
So if you are like me and for some odd reason the transmission repair takes 2 weeks and your repair people do not work weekends... Expect to pay for 12 days of rental car out of your own pocket.
Why would it take so long...
Well, the mechanic shop has the parts in hand for the repair but the warranty people will not let them do it because it will cost more money than the LKQ used parts.
And you are left holding the bag again.
This is the first repair that they OK'd out of my two dealings with them. So, do you feel like you got your 3 thousand dollars worth from the warranty contract? Or just more problems and more money spent.
Do yourself a favor if you have recently signed on for coverage from one of these companies...
IAP Integrity Automotive Protection, Dealer Services, Mepco, Protective Administrative Services, Advantage Warranty Corporation, Western Diversified Services, Lyndon Property Insurance Company, Royal Administration Services, Florida Service Agreement Company.
GET OUT OF THE CONTRACT before its too late.
Talk with your dealer or mechanic shop and see first who they would use for extended warranty coverage. Avoid the empty promises and pain that dealing with the above companies will inflict on you.
