My warranty is what ?!

I was shocked the other day when I received notification by mail that my outdoor wood furnace / boiler ( which I purchased in 1995 with a 10 year warranty) would
now have a lifetime warranty ! After reading this notice 3 times, I laughed. All the things I have purchased, all the warranty loopholes and headaches from radios to vehicles, and this company tells me that my warranty that expired 2 years ago, is now being extended to a lifetime warranty. What would the world be like if every company stood behind their products like this.

It seems that for everything I buy "warranty is void upon payment of invoice".

My warranty is what ?!

I once bought a piece of furniture that broke. No problem, I thought -- I bought an extended warranty that said it covered everything, to include accidental damage.

However, when I tried to get service, I got shot down. It turned out that the warranty covered absolutely everything except things like damage covered by manufacturer's warranty, damage from design or manufacturing defect, damaged caused while moving furniture, normal wear and tear, etc.

In other words, I had a "bumper to bumper" warranty that covered everything except pretty much anything that could actually damage furniture.

No more warranty purchases for me...ever. Mad

My experience is that...........whatever it is...........breaks shortly after the warranty expires.
