WARRANTY POLICY:

The duration of the warranty for each of these motor vehicles varies by manufacturer and/or model. The duration of the manufacturer’s warranty is clearly indicated in each vehicle listing and is subject to the policy and procedures of that manufacturer.

The warranty is divided into two categories (parts and motor) and the duration of each category may vary by model. Duration of the warranty is stated in a length of months and/or years. Duration of the warranty is limited to a distance of two thousand miles per year. The warranty expires upon reaching the stated duration or driving the total number of miles calculated for the warranty length. The warranty, in part or as a whole, may be rendered null and void under certain conditions as described in this warranty.

Bobcat's Motorsports Responsibilities:

  • Bobcat's Motorsports shall have sole discretion in determining if a malfunctions or damage is due to a defect in materials, workmanship, or manufacturing process or is a result of vehicle abuse, misuse, accident, negligence, etc.

  • The warranty specifically covers the warranty part(s) to the Buyer. Any part(s) covered under this warranty will be repaired or replaced at the sole discretion of Bobcat's. Repairs will be performed in a manner consistent with generally accepted practices of the automotive industry to return a repairable item to “as close to factory specification as mechanically possible”. Any component(s) that are replaced under this warranty will be replaced with a component(s) of like kind and quality. Replacement parts provided by this warranty are understood to be supplied by the manufacture. Bobcat's Motorsports will not pay for or reimburse the cost of part(s) obtained or purchased by the Buyer from a third party vendor.

  • Bobcat's Motorsports will process orders in the order in which they received and shall make every reasonable effort to process every order in 5-7 business days unless the parts are back ordered.

  • Bobcat's Motorsports provides a lifetime technical support via phone and email.

Bobcat's Limited Parts Warranty:

 

The term parts is understood to be synonymous with component, item, piece and/or any other term that, in general, describes any manufactured metal, or electrical component contained on and/or within the vehicle as it was produced by the manufacturer.

 

This warranty covers the following parts for the duration of the warranty except when excluded by specific conditions identified in the "Bobcat's Manufacturer Limited Warranty Details".

 

Parts: Any manufactured metal, or electrical component contained on and/or within the vehicle as it was produced by the manufacturer, excluding any part covered under the Bobcat's Limited Engine Warranty, is warranted against failure due to defect in materials, workmanship, or manufacturing process.

 

Any body plastic panel and accessories such as rear trunk, luggage rack, mirrors will be replaced only if a "shipping damage claim" is successfully filed (see "Shipping Information" for detail). Body panels and accessories are NOT covered by Bobcat's Manufacturer Limited Warranty for any reason.

 

Some defective parts such as engine must be returned to Bobcat's Motorsports Warranty Dept at Buyer's expense for inspection and verification of defect before a repair or replacement will be performed and determined. COD or badly damaged package due to poor packaging will be refused and returned to you. Bobcat's Motorsports and the manufactures reserve the right to decline any warranty claim based on the criteria listed in the Conditions portion of this warranty. The repaired or replacement engine will be shipped back to Buyer at buyer's expense.

 

WHY DO YOU WANT MY PART BACK?
We may need your part for several reasons:

  • We carry variety models from different manufacturers, and changes/upgrades on each model are often made by the manufacturer, therefore we some times need to match up and make sure your replacement part is the correct one before sending it to you.

  • We require the part back so we may monitor defective parts and notify the manufacturer about potential future problems or recalls.

  • We need to verify that your part is in fact defective. Many times we received parts back that were not defective at all. Our Warranty Dept. does no longer send out certain parts base on pictures or verbal/written notice from Buyer or a repair shop.

  • Some warranty parts such as engine must be sent back at your expense in order to receive free diagnosis, repair or exchange.

The 10% is to cover those fees.
