An auto repair lifetime warranty is an assurance against defects in materials and workmanship that does not have a time limit to make a claim. However, frequently the term “lifetime” can be misleading or confused. In the context of auto industry standards, the definition of “lifetime” is the total lifespan of your ownership of the vehicle – not the vehicle itself.
Warranty coverage ends when the ownership of the vehicle is transferred. The average lifespan of car ownership is 12 years or less. As a result, auto body shops work within a framework of understanding that a vehicle’s ownership will transfer within a twelve-year lifespan. However, auto body shops are liable to uphold the warranty in the instance that ownership is perpetual.
Many auto body shops offer written lifetime warranties on their repairs services. Industry experts exclaim that written lifetime warranties are a central feature to look for when pursuing high-quality and reliable auto body shops. Lifetime warranty components include: metalwork, painting, stripes, & decals, mechanical repairs, parts and labor.
