Procedure for Obtaining Performance Under This Warranty: Procedure for Obtaining Performance Under This Warranty:
In order to keep this warranty in effect, the owner must have the vehicle and its parts maintained as prescribed by the chassis manufacturer, lift manufacturer and Driverge. If a possible warranty claim arises, the owner must notify Driverge within 48 hours of the occurrence and before seeking service. To notify Driverge of a possible warranty claim, call us at 1-855-337-9543 . All warranty repairs must be authorized by Driverge in writing before they are performed. If a repair or replacement by an authorized service center is determined by Driverge to be impractical, the owner shall contact Driverge to make arrangements for the return of the defective part or products. Failure to comply with these procedures could lead to a possible denial of warranty coverage at Driverges’ discretion. Driverge reserves the right to make a physical inspection by authorized factory personnel of the vehicle following any complaint.
Parties to Whom Warranty is Extended:
This warranty shall be extended to the original purchaser and any legal transferee to whom such product is transferred during the warranty period except where limited as noted.
Items Not Covered:
Driverge is an upfitter of non-emergency transport vehicles and mini-vans whose products are mounted on chassis manufactured and expressly warranted by other manufacturers. This warranty does not, therefore, extend to nor cover any portion of the vehicle, nor contents thereof which has been separately warranted by another manufacturer; or manufactured by a manufacturer other than Driverge, except to the extent specifically required by any applicable Federal law or regulation. Driverge does not warrant the automotive chassis. Any and all parts supplied with the automotive chassis by the chassis manufacturer are strictly not covered by Driverge. These include, but are not limited to, engine, transmission, air conditioning (OEM), heater, brakes and the factory body. Consult the chassis manufacturer’s warranty with regard to those items. Driverge will reasonably assist the buyer to assure that the chassis manufacturer honors warranty obligations but Driverge accepts no liability for it. With regards to parts manufactured by others, which carry their own manufacturer’s warranty (such as wheelchair lifts, wheelchair and occupant restraint systems, audio equipment, rear air conditioning unit, batteries, tires, etc.) Driverge warrants its proper factory installation only. Refer to the warranty documents provided to the purchaser for information on how to obtain warranty service for these parts; or see the quick reference below.
