SEARS CRAFTSMAN SEARS CRAFTSMAN WARRANTY FOR LAWN TRACTOR MOWERS IS AN ILLUSION BATON ROUGE Louisiana
I recently bought one of the most expensive riding lawn mower tractors that Sears sells in the Craftsman brand.
After only a few months, the lawn tractor would not start. It appeared to be a defective battery.
I took the battery back to the store and asked them to check it since it was still under full warranty. I had also foolishly purchased an extended warranty.
I was told at the store that the SALE of Sears lawn equipment had nothing to do with the SERVICE of Sears products. They told me I would have to drive all the way across town to a service department.
Fortunately, I called the SERVICE department before driving all the way across town. I was told by the SERVICE department that they had nothing to do with WARRANTY SERVICE, and I would need to call an 800 number to schedule a warranty appointment.
When I called the 800 number, I was told it would be 2 weeks before they had an available appointment.
In Baton Rouge your grass will grow 2 feet high in 2 weeks, so I had to purchase a new battery at my expense, for which I was not reimbursed.
Before you buy any EQUIPMENT WITH A WARRANTY FROM SEARS, ASK THEM WHERE AND HOW THE WARRANTY SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED. Better yet, just go somewhere else and purchase your outdoor equipment.
