SERVICES COVERED BY THE WARRANTY
This is a reimbursement warranty for consumers which covers the originally installed part (see “Not Covered” for a list of exclusions) and labor associated with said part up to the original dollar amount listed on the original invoice (see “reimbursement limits”). The original part must have been installed by a participating Pronto Smart Choice Advantage Service Center and the Service Center must have been current on the program at the time of installation. Additionally, the warranty repair on the failed part must be performed by a Service Center and not an individual for the part to qualify for coverage.

The independent repair facility warrants that the above repairs and services performed at their location will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 24 months or 24,000 miles of use, whichever comes first, measured from the date of the first repair and the odometer reading shown on the original repair invoice. This warranty is conditioned on the vehicle being subjected only to normal use, and receiving reasonable and necessary maintenance during the warranty period. This warranty is limited to covering only the failed part (as listed on original service ticket), labor, and tax associated with part. Warranty repair costs shall in no case exceed the costs of the original repair or service. If there is a defect in either materials or workmanship within the warranty period, the independent repair facility has the option to perform remedial service work at no charge to you, replace the defective warranted part(s) without charge to you, or refund the entire charge for the warranted repairs, minus any previous refunds. If the warranty costs are less than the original service ticket, the lesser amount will be reimbursed. Incidental or consequential damages are not covered.
A buyer of covered products or services has the right to have warranty service performed during the warranty period. The warranty period will be extended for the number of whole days that the vehicle has been out of the buyer’s hands for warranty repairs. If a defect exists within the warranty period, the warranty will not expire until the defect has been fixed. The warranty period will also be extended if the warranty repairs have not been performed due to delays caused by circumstances beyond the control of the buyer, or if the warranty repairs did not remedy the defect, and the buyer notifies the warranty administrator of the failure of the repairs within 60 days after they were completed. If, after a reasonable number of attempts, the defect has not been fixed, the buyer may return his vehicle for a replacement of parts, if applicable, or a refund, in either case, subject to deduction of a reasonable charge for usage. This time extension does not affect the protections or remedies the buyer has under any law.
