Warrant on engine

Ask a Lawyer


Country: United States of America
State: Arizona

I have a warranty for life on my engine motor. This was free from the dealer at the time of purchase. The vehicle already had 70,000 miles . I drove 6,700 miles in one year. The motor is damaged beyond repair from a spun main bearing. The warranty company is placing a set dollar amount to fix the problem. The warranty company authorized me to take the vehicle anywhere, but now claims the amount needed to repair the vehicle is too high and will not adjust dollar amount to facilitate needed repairs. Can the warranty company do this? The contract is a single page and states "all at no charge to you", but everyone keeps telling me I am going to be responsible for the difference. What can I do?


Based on what you say here, you could probably file suit against them (or at least threaten to do so) in small claims court or in regular court; filing in small claims court is easier and requires no attorney...you could try to collect all of the costs and damages that you suffered due to their behavior..
