Are manufacturers warranty any good?
Seems to be relative to the dealer you work with. I have seen some that took care of problems very well and others that either did not take care of problems or whacked them with additional charges to warranty an item. Case in point is a customer we had that needed brake rotors. The dealer warrantied the rotors, but then charged additional to put on the pads. So much additional that our shop could have done the whole job less than what he was charged to get warranty work done. Dealers are compensated by the manufacturer when warranty work is kept low as I understand it. How true that is I don't know, but seems to fit. Another case of warranty work that sticks out in my mind is a car that just went out of warranty by 1000 miles or so. It needed headgaskets and the dealer would not take care of it because of no prior maintnenence being performed there. Rare that this happens to an engine, but this particular engine production was a problem child that the dealer often did take care of. Now whether they would have backed it had she brought the car there for oil changes, tire rotations or other services (that probably weren't needed) remains to be seen. Most dealers seem to not want to take care of warranty work if the vehicles was purchased elsewhere. Some are upstanding and reputable because they understand that it is the right thing to do and can build a better customer base by doing so. There are plenty of loopholes to deny warranty work and potential aggravation to get problems resolved....but you never know until that gets to that point. They can be great, but it all depends on what they cover. You need to be sure to read the fine print. And stay away from extended warranties or the "extra" coverage stores like Best Buy and Circuit City offer. They're trash and they'll end up costing you a lot of money.
To purchase an extended warranty for any product is a personal decision. Many television wall mount manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty on their mounts. If you were to purchase one without a lifetime warranty, an extended warranty would either help or totally cover the cost of repair and/or replacement.
The Texas "lemon law" does not apply or include used cars. You buy it as is with no warranties expressed or implied unless your contract with the dealer includes any repair clauses. You did read ALL the fine print before you signed? The exception to this would be if the used car was new enough to still be covered by the manufacturers warranty, but not any extended warranty.
If your computer was supplied with Windows 8, and you 'roll back' the operating system to Windows 7, you will void your warranty. Computer manufacturers have already stated that they will not repair any Windows 8 computer under warranty that's been 'rolled back'.

Also known as the "manufacturer's warranty", the "factory warranty" is issued by the car manufacturer after a purchase of a vehicle for a certain period of time. It consists of bumper-to-bumper coverage, powertrain protection, and transferability. For some car manufacturers, this warranty may also included maintenance coverage for your vehicle. The coverage provided by the warranty is determined by time and mileage, whichever comes first. It is true to say that after the factory warranty…

For Hondas still under warranty, it's always best to follow the manufacturers warranty requirements. Actually, any oil you ever put in your engine should, at the very least, meet those standards. That said, I highly recommend 100% synthetic oil with one caveat: If your Honda engine has oil leaks it's a good idea to get the leaks fixed prior to switching to synthetic oil, since synthetic oil tends to clean up the crankcase removing sludge…
Can you still buy the warranty on your phone from Verizon if you didn't buy it when you got the phone?
The Federal Law is known as the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. This applies to any product over $25 with a manufacturers warranty. In the automobile industry, we use this law when folks either suffer defects that are not significant enough to warrant a lemon law claim, or their age or mileage fall outside the lemon law parameters.

The warranty is usually 30 days from the date of purchase. Warrior, as with most stick manufacturers, prefers that you handle all stick warranties directly through them. They do not want you to go back to the store you purchased the stick from. You can find all the warranty information you need by going to the Warrior hockey website (see related link).
Manufacturers have a warranty period where repairs are covered. The extended warranty is usually sold by the retailer to extend that plan and provide additional coverage for the device you purchased. One of the drawbacks of the extended warranty is that it usually runs concurrent with the manufacturer's warranty period, and in essence, you're paying for a warranty on a warranty for a period of time. Some retailers may allow you to hold off on…
The manufacturers warranty is only going to cover you for 1 year parts and labor. When you purchase an extended warranty through retailers they charge large markups so that they can sell the TV at a discount to lure customers in. Seek a company who specializes in warranties alone so that you can save money and have more extensive coverage. There are recommendations at the link below.
Legally - you can't. You void the warranty on your computer if you do that - and if your computer develops a fault - even if it's still under the manufacturers guarantee period - many manufacturers will not fix the problem for free - citing that you changed the operating system from the one that was supplied with the machine !
No. Most used car dealerships have a "As Is" sticker on the car and the contract of sale. Once you take the keys in your hand, and you drive off the lot, the responsibility is your. Further, Brake pads, oil, filters and the like are labled "consumables" and are not normally covered under any warranty.
