Unisteer Warranty is a JOKE!

These quotes ought sum it up pretty well...
I have been trying to speak with a manager since Thursday and finally got in touch with one moments ago only to hear excuses how a 'manufacturer' should interpret the way I tell them the rack bent, and doesn't even know the language his own people use when describing their warranty.
Then I get a "deal" offered to me saying they will discount their rack to me for $300 if I choose to purchase a new one and that they are regular $439. Come to find out, they are selling them directly off their website for $339.

I will continue to discuss this with the manager in hopes that he will honor the written words a representative of the company used to explain their 'lifetime' warranty.

If you break it from jumping or rock crawling than it's covered.

This is a beefed up steering rack all the way from the rack itself to the heim joints. It keeps the same steering ratio. Please understand we are very lenient on our warranty claims also.

I'm sorry about your rack bending. I have a solution that should help. The reason that it bends is because there is too much pressure being put onto it because of the bumpsteer that our rack produces. To solve the bumpsteer problem we have recently made a kit with extensions. You do need to use your wheel spacers with these extensions. I will repair the rack and send it back with the extensions. Thank you for the youtube video too!

Best regards,
Brandon

Everything on the rack is bent and needs replaced, so in order to fix it you will have to purchase a new one. They are in stock and can be shipped as soon as you need it and I will gladly ship back the damaged rack to you since it is yours, unless you don't want it.

The damage done was not caused from the bump steer problem like I previously stated but if you decide to order a new rack I can send you the extensions anyways.

Regards,
Brandon

They will honor the warranty to me!

I was very surprised to get a phone call back from Unisteer manager today and he said he will warranty it this time and correct their warranty language.

Thank you Unisteer!

sounds like a warranty issue and they should send a new one postage paid. That kind of damage is covered. Nothing directly hit it.

2nd place is the first loser!!

Were a whole lot faster than you think you are.

Why should they? That video doesn't bash them. Brandon actually thanked me for it.

Besides, except for the thread title, this wasn't a bash thread.
