More Aftermarket Warranty Woes

By January 22, 2010

Follow me on:

I know I've been on the aftermarket warranty rampage of late, but things keep popping up which remind me of how careful you need to be when buying an extended warranty of any type. The latest comes from Pennsylvania, by way of Rhode Island. It seems a number of people in Rhode Island purchased extended warranty coverage from Eagle Warranty Corp., of Eynon, Pennsylvania, only to find that they had no coverage at all when a major repair arose. More than 600 people have filed an official complaint against the now-bankrupt company. We can't be sure whether Eagle was trying to scam their customers or just victims of bad business who ended up in bankruptcy court. Either way, the end result is the same -- car owners and honest repair shops left holding the bag, and the bill.

To buy an extended warranty is a risk factor job since it is not always that easy task.. one need to be very careful and be patient while doing it and must work properly on it.

(4) Finance Software says:

An Eynon company specializing in selling warranties to used-car buyers who wanted protection from costly repairs instead shafted customers by giving them the run-around and bounced checks, according to a lawsuit filed by the state attorney general’s office.

The number of customers who might be victims of Eagle Warranty Corp. soared last week when the company abruptly closed its offices on the Scranton/Carbondale Highway, the attorney general’s office said Friday.

Attempts were unsuccessful to contact company president, Charles Yaskulski, and his son, Charles Yaskulski, the vice president. A message on the company’s telephone said it was “closed for business at this time.”
