Fill out the information below and one of our Warranty Refund Account Executives will
contact you with information on how you can receive a refund on your vehicles warranty.
1. What is an extended warranty?
Extended warranties, commonly referred to as Vehicle Service Contracts (VSC), are extended service contracts that compensate the owner for repair costs on parts that have exceeded their manufacturer's warranty. Other options are, but are not limited to: Maintenance Packages (Maintenance Extended Warranty and Maintenance Extended Service Contract), which covers oil changes, tune ups, and the like; Tire and Wheel Packages (Tire and Wheel Extended Warranty and Tire and Wheel Service Contract), which covers major wheel damage and the costs associated with tire wear and tear; and GAP insurance, which will pay the difference in monies owed to the lien holder in the event the vehicle was totaled or stolen.
2. How do I qualify for a refund? You may qualify for a refund if:
a. You purchased an extended warranty on your vehicle within the last 5 years. You could qualify for any (or all) of the following: Extended Warranty Refund, Maintenance Warranty Refund, Tire and Wheel Warranty Refund, and/or GAP Insurance Refund
b. The extended warranty(ies) that you purchased is still valid, has not expired due to time or mileage constraints, and its ownership has not been transferred to another party
c. You traded your vehicle in, sold, crashed, or still own it. Call us to see if you qualify for a refund
3. How long does it take to get my refund?
It typically takes 6-8 weeks for the warranty company to issue a refund check. The elapsed time depends largely on your warranty company and the selling agent's willingness to process your claim. Williamson & Howard, LLP has a team, experienced in processing refunds, legal support, and a seamless process that ensures your refund request will be handled with diligence.
4. What is the refund process?
3 Step Process
1. Determine if you qualify for the Warranty Refund Assistance Program
a. Once Republic gets your basic vehicle and warranty information, we will review your contract(s) and determine if you qualify to receive a refund
b. If you qualify, you may engage a Republic Attorney to represent you in obtaining your refund
c. Your Attorney will issue letters to all the parties involved to make them aware that you are legally represented by the Republic
d. Republic will obtain all supporting documents that are required and derive a refund estimate based on your vehicle and warranty information
a. Your Refund Claim is generated through our integrated systems and sent to your selling dealer and warranty administrator
b. Your Attorney will contact both parties to ensure that your claim is complete and that their initial refund calculation coincides with Republic's estimation
3. Receive your refund check
a. Republic will conduct a final audit of the refund amount in order to maximize your refund and verify that an accurate amount has been paid to you
b. Your Attorney reviews the entire refund process from start to end to ensure that your warranty administrator and selling dealer adhere to Service Contract Industry Council (SCIC) standards
5. How much does your service cost?
Republic retains 50% (.50) of any refund that is recovered on your behalf, as a fee for our legal services. If you are ineligible to receive a refund, or in the unlikely case we are unable to get you a refund, you will be charged nothing.
6. What does the law say about canceling an extended warranty?
The laws differ slightly from state to state, but many states have laws that give you the legal right to cancel your extended warranty before it has expired and receive a prorated refund.
For example, California Civil Code Section 1794.41, states that, "if you have owned an extended auto warranty contract for more than 60 days, your cancellation right (at the time of trade-in/sale to a dealer) entitles you to a pro-rated refund from the warranty provider based on elapsed time and/or mileage, regardless of whether you have filed a claim or not."
