What to do about a new ransmission after I took my truck to a mechanic shop to have the original transmission replaced?
Question Details: When I got the truck back they gave me a 101 day warranty. As soon as I pulled out of the driveway I noticed that this transmission was no better than the old one. I turned around and went straight back. They said they would honor the warranty. They allowed me to take the truck home until they could get another transmission for it. A month later they called and said they would have to rebuild a transmission for it and we would have to pay an additional $350 for it. Then they have us bring the truck in with a promise to have it done in 2-3 days. We are now on day 8 and they are not finished with the truck yet. Can they charge us extra while it was under warranty?
A warranty is a contract; like any other contract, it is governed by its terms, and may be enforced according to its plain terms. Therefore, what they can and cannot charge you depends upon the exact terms of the warranty you received and how the current situation (e.g. the exact problem with the transmission) applies to it. Review the warranty; you should be entitled to whatever coverage the warranty provides, and should only have to pay any amounts the warranty itself allows the shop to charge you.
