The warranty papers are cleverly written. If I can get a good picture of the "not covered" section, I'll post it. If it comes back as not covered, this is where my argument to the contrary would begin. May take time, as this would likely require an in depth look into root cause of the mechanical failure, which is both time and labor intensive for both parties.I'm sorry that you're having to deal with this during the holidays Mike. Are they suppying you with a rental or loaner? Now's the time to get your hands and eyes on that extended warranty (you should have the paperwork you signed) and read through all that fine print so you know your rights in case they try to offer less than you're owed. Good luck and keep us in the loop. ?
