Warranty 4 Wheels.com Complaint - Beware Of Warranty 4 Wheels
ARIZONA -- Beware of warranty 4 wheels.com. They scammed me on a warranty that I purchased approx one year ago in 2008.
They cover you for broken parts ONLY and not worn parts. Why would any warranty company do this? To keep them from paying a mechanic.
Here's how this warranty I purchased works with them.
I bought a warranty for full coverage for engine and transmission. But in the fine print it says they won't cover you for "worn parts" only broken parts. Now does this make sense to anyone who wants an after market warranty? No one seeks a warranty covering only broken parts they buy one for worn OR broken parts: its a security blanket. Of all the coverage I've seen, and my family members have several types of coverage,
I've never heard of coverage for broken parts ONLY.
EVERYONE buys a warranty for repair of either or broken or worn parts. But this company used this warranty to sucker people in so that they wouldn't have to pay anything out for "broken" parts because broken usually doesn't happen, but worn does. So it's scam ! This warranty was a consideration at the time for me because my finances were not at their best so though the warranty was not comparatively expensive, it was not cheap either.
They can respond all they want to to this post. By now I've exposed their scam for what it is. They don't give you warning or details on a warranty because their goal is to just sell you something & pocket the cash.
When I first bought the coverage, I wanted something that covered a water pump as well as the engine, & almost didn't get one with w/p coverage, because they didn't tell me exactly what I was buying. I had purchased it without a w/p coverage and upon reading, I promptly changed it to cover it, which they honored.
But when I called back to confirm I made a purchase with coverage of a w/p, I was treated hostilly and with suspicion as if I were scamming them for a pre condition, when all I wanted was coverage of a water pump included in my purchase.
One year later upon making a w/p claim this week to be exact, I found out that I was scammed by the fine print in that they covered ONLY broken parts not worn parts. Why would a company do this? To avoid having to pay a customer's repairs. Everyone buys a warranty for protection for his vehicle, not for broken parts only. This is a scam in my view and all I can say is caveat emptor for Warranty4wheels.
When I fist made a claim on the coverage, they said I needed all of the service records for the vehicle submitted by a certain deadline. Not having all of the service records on hand I submitted what I had minus one for the time being, but PRIOR to deadline which they clearly defined. Almost instantly I received a reply: "this case is closed: over 10 k miles between services." Being a day early with all of the info, I proceeded to gather the gaps of the missing info & submitted them as complete. Their next trick was to tell me that I was not covered for worn parts but broken parts only.
In my view this kind of scam is aimed at taking your money to place in a high interest bank account because it's as safe as yesterday for them since they don't have to reissue it to you for three years if you don't use it. How could a person use it if it has coverage for something that rarely occurs in a used car which is broken parts? Worn parts occur more often: & they know it. Analysis: SCAM !
Let them say what they will.
Warranty4wheels sells consumers companies that do not offer satisfactory coverage for the them, so this should not even be considered as a service to offer. Would they warn a consumer in advance if they knew the consumer would not be satisfied with the contract? No. So low standards & taking your money to offer nothing in return is their game.
