Bought a Husqvarna chain saw on Internet. Had a problem after receiving. Took to a Factory Authorized Repair Center for repair. After repairing (not when leaving saw) was told that they do not honor warranty on internet sales and I had to pay. Called Husqvarna and told I should have called beforehand to get list of Repair Centers that honor warranty on Internet sales.
Not sure how widespread this is (Repair Centers, different vendors, different products), but be cautious as it can be an expensive ownership expense, throughout the warranty period.
Should not the manufacturer require all Certified Repair Centers to honor any proper warranty claim?
