Third Party Extended Warranties
Q: I purchased a third party extended service contract and my vehicle is still under warranty under this extended contract. Does this mean my vehicle still qualifies for lemon law assistance?
A: No. third party service contracts are not the same as the manufacturer’s original factory warranty. Only extended service contracts purchased directly from the manufacturer are valid to extend certain warranties. If you cannot establish problems during the manufacturer’s original factory warranty period, the third party contract cannot be used to assert that the vehicle is under warranty.
