This certificate confirms that the repairs, which you and the selected Collision Center agreed to have performed on Repair Order Number ____ have been completed. We warranty our work as long as you own the vehicle as specified below. This warranty shall only apply if the defects occur under normal driving conditions and as a result of faulty repairs or workmanship. The warranty made herein shall be deemed null and void in the event the vehicle has been subject to accidents, alterations, negligence, abuse or misuse. Specifically excluded from this warranty is rust re-occurring in any repaired area and/or scratches and chips acquired from driving conditions or intentional or negligent acts. This is a four part written warranty with specific additional limitations pertaining to each section as described below.

METAL WORK Collision Center provides a limited lifetime warranty against defective workmanship, which includes welding and the application of materials, utilized in the repair process against cracking, flaking, pitting and deterioration (excluding re-occurring rust). The Collision Center will, after inspection and at its sole discretion, repair and re-paint any metal work warranted herein.

PAINTING, STRIPES AND DECALS Collision Center provides a limited lifetime warranty as indicated by the paint manufacturer’s literature on all paint and paint related items performed in the repair process. Collision Center also provides the same limited, lifetime warranty on the application of decorative stripes and decals, excluding fading, cracking or other defects caused by environmental conditions, road hazards, or negligent or intentional acts that the vehicle may have been exposed to. The Collision Center will, after inspection and at its sole discretion, replace, re-paint, and otherwise repair any paintwork warranted herein. The paint warranty is valid only when the paint has been applied over new parts or OEM finishes that are free of defects.
MECHANICAL REPAIRS Collision Center provides a limited, lifetime warranty on the workmanship of all mechanical repairs, excluding parts failures after any applicable manufacturer warranty period, pertaining specifically to the original collision repair excluding air-conditioning, suspension parts, and electrical components or assemblies. The Collision Center will, after inspection and at its sole discretion, replace or otherwise repair any mechanical work warranted herein.

PARTS Collision Center warrants that the parts and materials utilized in the repair of your vehicle are of premium quality except that used, reconditioned, or non-OEM parts may be used, but only when specified and agreed to by either yourself or by requirement of your insurance provider. These parts, as described on the repair order, are subject to the guarantee or warranty of the manufacturer. Collision Center specifically disclaims all liability for any damages including, consequential, incidental, and punitive damages resulting from defective parts or materials.
SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED are costs such as towing fees, rental charges, travel expenses, incidental, special or consequential damages, or loss of use claims. Also excluded are consequential damages to assemblies and components resulting from a defective part or installation of said part during the repair process.

This warranty may not be varied, supplemented, qualified or interpreted by any prior course of dealings and is limited (non-transferable) to the original vehicle owner at the time repairs are made. Additionally, the warranty is null and void if the repair is altered, adjusted or tampered with by a non-authorized person. To be eligible for warranty coverage you must submit your claim promptly upon discovery of the defect.

POWER OF ATTORNEY: Customer hereby grants the applicable Collision Center and its authorized employees a limited power of attorney and hereby appoints same as their attorney in fact, to endorse on Customer’s behalf, all insurance company checks made payable to the applicable Collision Center and/or Customer regarding authorized repairs to the vehicle described below and which is the subject of this Limited Warranty Certificate (the “Vehicle”). This limited power of attorney shall expire upon full payment of all repairs to the Vehicle.

THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CERTIFICATE SETS FORTH THE ENTIRE AND COMPLETE WARRANTY OF THE COLLISION CENTER AND SUPERSEDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE REPAIRS TO THE VEHICLE AND COLLISION REPAIR CENTER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ALL WARRANTIES NOT STATED HEREIN INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE DURATION OF ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY BE IMPLIED AND CANNOT BE DISCLAIMED BY LAW IS LIMITED TO THE TERM OF THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CERTIFICATE. IN NO EVENT WILL COLLISION CENTER BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. SOME STATES MAY NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON THE DURATION OF AN IMPLIED WARRANTY AND/OR MAY NOT ALLOW EXCLUSIONS OR LIMITATIONS OF INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES. CONSEQUENTLY, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND/OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
