NAPA AUTOCARE “PEACE OF MIND” NATIONWIDE LIMITED WARRANTY EXTENDED BY AUTO CARE PLUS
36 MONTHS / 36,000 MILES
WHO MAKES THIS LIMITED WARRANTY
This limited warranty is extended only to you, the original purchaser, and not to anyone who may purchase your vehicle from you during the term of the warranty. This limited warranty is made by the Independent Repair Facility ("Dealer") who is so named on the original repair order, and whom performed the service/repairs on your vehicle. This warranty will be honored by any NAPA AutoCare Dealer participating in this program. This warranty is not a warranty by National Automotive Parts Association (NAPA), its employees, jobbers, member companies, or the administrator, Sonsio Administrative Services, Inc., its affiliates, subsidiaries or any of their employees, or member companies. Sonsio Administrative Services, Inc. serves as the administrator only. Auto Care Plus extends the NAPA Piece of Mind warranty, which is standard on all repairs, only after that warranty has expired. Any repair covered by NAPA will fall under those warranty provisions and are not the responsibility of Auto Care Plus. Terms and conditions of the warranty can be obtained at Auto Care Plus or by visiting the NAPA website http://www.napaautocare.com/peace-of-mind.aspx. In order to keep the extension of warranty by Auto Care Plus on any repair in tact, the owner of the vehicle must bring the vehicle in for a courtesy inspection at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles so that Auto Care Plus can inspect the repairs that are under warranty. Failure to do this will result in the warranty extension for any repair becoming void.

This warranty is conditioned on the vehicle being subjected only to normal, non-commercial use, and receiving reasonable and necessary maintenance during the warranty period.

STATE OF CALIFORNIA ONLY: A buyer of covered products or services has the right to have warranty service performed during the warranty period. The warranty period will be extended for the number of whole days that the vehicle has been out of the buyer’s hands for warranty repairs. If a defect exists within the warranty period, the warranty will not expire until the defect has been fixed. The warranty period will also be extended if the warranty repairs have not been performed due to delays caused by circumstances beyond the control of the buyer, or if the warranty repairs did not remedy the defect, and the buyer notifies the warranty administrator of the failure of the repairs within 60 days after they were completed. If, after a reasonable number of attempts, the defect has not been fixed, the buyer may return his vehicle for a replacement of parts, if applicable, or a refund, in either case, subject to deduction of a reasonable charge for usage. This time extension does not affect the protections or remedies the buyer has under other laws.
