More than likely, these locations are independent companies that want to sell you extended warranties – specifically service contracts – that often sell for hundreds or thousands of dollars. If you answer a call from an advanced warranty business-pitching, you`ll probably hear high-pressure sales tactics as well as requests for personal financial information and a down payment before receiving details of the service contract. And if you buy a service contract, you may find that the company behind it will not be in business long enough to fulfill its obligations. Did you acquire the extended warranty when we purchased our new Subaru from Reno Lithia Subaru. Needed to take advantage of the extended warranty in the last month, we live 140 miles from the next Lithia dealership, called First Extended Service Corporation and explained this to them and were told, «No problem taking it to any dealer and we`ll cover the repair.» One day free from work, went to the Subaru dealership and it was said that the warranty would not be covered. They told me I had to take another day off, do another 280 mile round trip and do the repair at a Lithia dealership. I lost more money than repair would cost a day off work and I can`t afford to take another day off and lose more money. But they said it was my only choice, even though they said on the extended warranty card that if I lived more than 40 miles from the dealership, where I bought the vehicle, they would cover the repair. A complete JOKE. Bob – I bought a service plan when I bought my vehicle. This company refuses to pay for covered repairs.
They were hooked on the mechanics they sent me because he was calling them for his fraudulent behavior. You`ve denied my claim six times. I am without a vehicle before Christmas and they will not allow me to rent. My gearbox needs to be repaired to be covered. Careful! I will take them on the advice of the workshop to a small claims court. – The warranty companies have not activated the contract that brings the customer to the position he paid for services that do not exist between September and November 2019. It`s proven and documented. The guarantee company received payments for the contract it had not activated. The sale of non-existent services is illegal. It did not exist because the client, if he had filed an application, would have been rejected because the data set did not contain any information about the debiteur because it had not been voluntarily activated. First Extended Service is an automobile warranty company with four different vehicle service options.
If your car needs to be repaired for a component covered by your warranty, First Extended Service will pay for the repair minus a deductible. Typical deductibles range from $50 to $100.
