Allmac Repair Limited Warranty

All of our NEW part repairs are covered under our 1-year/30,000-km limited parts and labor warranty.  In all cases, the warranty expires when either limit is met; time or mileage. Warranty covers failed part only and no consequential damage and/or towing caused by failed part and/or customer abuse/neglect. Warranty covers repairs only up to the maximum dollar value of original repairs.

Some parts will have extended warranty. This varies by part and manufacturer (ex. DFC engines have a 5year/160,000km limited warranty).  If there is any extended warranty this will be printed on the invoice. Extended warranties are covered by manufacturer only and subject to their terms and conditions, not Allmac Repair LTD.

Used parts have a 30day/1,000km parts and labour warranty.

The warranty is not transferrable, and all vehicles must be returned to Allmac Repair LTD for warranty repairs unless other arrangements are made at our discretion. 

Failures caused by a non-covered part, lack of maintenance, unapproved repairs, or neglect will void the warranty.  Surface corrosion on parts is not covered.

Example:  A serpentine belt is replaced by Allmac Repair LTD, 10 months later the alternator fails and causes the belt to break.  The belt is not covered under warranty at that point.                             

Example: A new engine or transmission has not been serviced at recommended intervals, This will void the warranty.                             Example: An unapproved repair caused a new engine to overheat,  This would void the engine warranty.

 

 

Recommended service intervals. (Manufacturer may have other service intervals that will need to followed also)

New engine 1st oil change 500kms, 2nd 1500kms and every 7500kms/6months thereafter.

Understanding the Limitations of Third-Party Warranties for Auto Repairs

If you have a third-party warranty for your vehicle repairs, it's important to understand the limitations of these warranties. In many cases, third-party warranties do not provide the coverage that customers expect, and there may be additional costs involved. Here are some key points to keep in mind:

What is a third-party warranty?

A third-party warranty is a contract between you and a warranty provider (not the vehicle manufacturer) that covers certain repairs to your vehicle. These warranties can be purchased at any time, even after your vehicle's original warranty has expired.

What do third-party warranties cover?

The coverage provided by third-party warranties can vary widely depending on the provider and the specific contract you purchase. Some warranties cover only certain parts of your vehicle, while others may provide more comprehensive coverage for a range of repairs.

In general, third-party warranties may cover:

Engine and transmission repairs

Electrical system repairs

Suspension and steering repairs

Brake system repairs

Heating and air conditioning repairs

What are the limitations of third-party warranties?

Unfortunately, third-party warranties often come with a number of limitations that can leave customers with unexpected expenses. Some of the most common limitations include:

Exclusions: Many warranties exclude certain parts or types of repairs from coverage. For example, a warranty might cover engine repairs, but not damage caused by overheating or neglect.

High deductibles: Some warranties require customers to pay a high deductible before coverage kicks in. This can make the warranty less cost-effective for customers.

Limited coverage: In many cases, third-party warranties only cover a portion of the cost of repairs, leaving customers to foot the bill for the rest.

Provider restrictions: Some warranties require customers to have their repairs done at specific repair shops or by specific mechanics. This can be inconvenient for customers and limit their options for repair.

Diagnosis and testing costs: Many third-party warranties do not cover the cost of diagnosing or testing a problem with your vehicle. This can add additional expenses to your repair bill.

Administration charges: Due to the large amount of extra work required to work with the aftermarket warranty, we charge additional administration fees for the extra time required dealing with aftermarket warranty companies.

What should I consider before purchasing a third-party warranty?

Before purchasing a third-party warranty, it's important to carefully review the terms of the contract and consider the following factors:

Exclusions and limitations: Make sure you understand what repairs are covered (and not covered) by the warranty before making a purchase.

Deductibles and co-payments: Consider the cost of the deductible or co-payment when evaluating the value of the warranty.

Provider reputation: Research the warranty provider to ensure they have a good reputation and a history of honoring their contracts.

Diagnosis and testing costs: Be aware that many warranties do not cover the cost of diagnosing or testing a problem with your vehicle, which can add to your repair costs.

Overall, third-party warranties can be a risky investment, as they often come with a number of exclusions and limitations that can leave customers with unexpected expenses. If you do decide to purchase a third-party warranty, be sure to carefully review the terms of the contract and choose a reputable provider to minimize your risk.
