WARRANTY

Bob's Driveline uses only high quality parts from reputable suppliers in all its automotive repairs. We also have the best and most qualified Technicians in the industry, allowing us to confidently stand behind our work with a 24 month, 24,000 Km warranty.

For Transmission and Driveline repairs our warranty remedies can be accommodated through any ATRA member shop across North America. ATRA - the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association - is an international trade association for the professional automatic transmission repair industry. With members across the US and Canada, ATRA's network of automatic transmission repair professionals can offer you repair and warranty coverage anywhere you are likely to drive. With nearly 2000 members, ATRA is larger than every automatic transmission repair chain combined - nearly three times the size of the largest chain in the US. Which means that no chain can provide better warranty coverage than ATRA's network of professional service centers. Every ATRA member must adhere to ATRA's Code of Ethics - ATRA's standards for providing honest, professional service. So, when you take your vehicle to an ATRA member, you are assured of polite, professional service, at an honest price. And not just automatic transmission repair; most ATRA members also provide diagnostic and repair service for manual transmissions, clutches, differentials, driveshafts, drive axles, and transfer cases.

Warranty Details: Bob's Driveline warranties its parts and labor for 24 months or 24,000 Km, whichever comes first, beginning immediately upon completing the service or repair. This warranty applies to all material and workmanship supplied by Bob's Driveline under normal vehicle use and service. Certain components, including some transmissions and transfer cases, come with additional or extended warranties offered by their manufacturers. These special warranties will be noted on the Customer’s invoice.

Any Bob’s Driveline warranty is void if components have been subjected to usage beyond the specified capacities and usage parameters of the vehicle, misused, neglected, not maintained properly, subjected to road hazard, accident damage, or altered by anyone other than the technicians at Bob's Driveline Service Ltd. Declining a repair or service that can affect a previous repair or service will also void the previous warranty. Proof of maintenance may be required at any time to confirm the validity of a warranty claim. Warranties are not transferable.

There is no warranty expressed or implied on any service where used parts or materials have been installed, or where parts/materials have been supplied by the customer. Any warranty repairs or towing must be approved by management in advance for the claim to be recognized. No warranty is extended to cover loss of use, loss of earnings, per diem expenses or any other claim of expense or loss whatsoever.

Extended warranty parts, special notes, limitations, and other conditions may be applied on a case-by-case basis. Any such conditions will be noted on the Customer's Invoice.
