I leased a car in April of 2001. I was told by my salesman (who is no longer there) I had a standard 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. My lease contract states, "standard manufacturer warranty." I took my car in for servicing and a major repair this weekend and was informed by the service department that my warranty is up in October. That's 6 months before my lease is up! I informed them that it had not been 3 years, nor am I over 35,000 miles. I was told that is was indeed up in October. The guy said, "You have to be careful about warranties. They can be misleading." I was also told that the warranty started the day the car was delivered on the lot, not the day I took delivery of it. I was furious, to say the least. The next day I went up to pick up my loaner car and I ambled into the showroom pretending to be interested in their cars. I asked a salesman about the terms of their leases and their warranties. I was told a lease warranty was the same as a new car warranty: 3 years/36,000 miles from the day it is the car was delivered to the customer. I then asked him why my 2001 warranty was not being honored in that manner. After stuttering and stammering for a while, he couldn't come up with an answer (although he did let me know he could get me out of my lease and into a new one ) . I think not. Long story short, the salesman could give me an explaination on my warranty, and the salesmanager was no help, as well. They only said their could be extenuating circumstances (like what, I asked?). I was told to call the Service Manager for help. WTF does the Service Manager have to do with the original terms of my lease?!?!?!?!? Has anyone ever heard of this happening before? What are my rights? I contacted the corporate office on this situation.
