Parts & Labor Warranty
24 Months/24,000 Miles
(*for original repairs beginning in 2013)
This warranty is made by the Independent Service Center and is administered by National Pronto Association. This warranty applies only to the vehicle owner at time of the original repair and is not transferable.
This is a reimbursement warranty for consumers which covers the originally installed part (see “Not Covered” for a list of exclusions) and labor associated with said part up to the original dollar amount listed on the original invoice (see “reimbursement limits”). The original part must have been installed by a participating Pronto Smart Choice Advantage Service Center and the Service Center must have been current on the program at the time of installation. Additionally, the warranty repair on the failed part must be performed by a Service Center and not an individual for the part to qualify for coverage. The warranty is offered for 24-months or 24,000 miles; whichever comes first. An Odometer reading is required to be listed on the original ticket and the rework ticket. Odometer reading and date of service will be used to determine eligibility. If an odometer reading and/or service date is not listed, this warranty is void. Consumer must keep a copy of the original invoice for the warranty to be valid. The Service Center is required to stamp or print the Protection Plus logo on the invoice. The 25-mile rule also governs this warranty.
The Independent Service Center warrants the repairs and services performed will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 24-months or 24,000 miles of use; whichever comes first. Service Centers agree to honor the warranty for any vehicles returning to their shop for service under the 25 mile rule. Service Centers also agree to honor the manufacturer’s written warranty (labor excluded) on parts replacement outside the Protection Plus warranty period of 24-months or 24,000 miles (whichever comes first) and the manufacturer’s written warranty will govern the product replacement. Independent Service Centers may stock different brands of merchandise by location. Each participating outlet has the right to replace a covered part with a like part of equal value. The Service Center is responsible for passing on the warranty information to the consumer.
25 Mile Rule
• If the consumer is more than 25 miles from the original service center, the consumer must call the Warranty administrator to start a warranty claim prior to any work being performed. The warranty administrator will give instruction on how to handle the warranty.
• If a consumer is 25 miles or less from the original service center, consumer must return to the original service center for warranty work. Service center agrees to replace the failed part without charging the consumer for parts or labor.
• In both cases, please refer to the section on “How to Obtain Warranty Service”. Failure to follow the 25 mile rule instructions will automatically void the Protection Plus warranty.
