Consumer beware

A word to the wise from one Kootenay resident to others

 

 

To the consumer who is purchasing a used vehicle and offered an extended warranty, read the fine print carefully. Global Warranty is an extended warranty service that is being offered here in the Kootenays. Global’s maintenance program is extensive (2x the maintenance schedule program of a newer vehicle) EVERY THREE MONTHS, in addition to following the vehicle’s owner manual for Severe Driving conditions. Otherwise your extended warranty is not worth the paper it’s printed on. This is a very important detail of the maintenance schedule (which is vital for the warranty to be valid).  Car and Truck dealerships who offer this extended warranty, should have a sense of obligation to point this out to their customer. The dealerships should be properly informing their customers of all vital details, due to the excessive nature of the extended warranty maintenance program. So before you sign on the dotted line, have the details of your extended warranty clearly explained to you by your dealership.
