This really annoys me. If you buy a Chevrolet car, you can get it serviced under warranty at any dealer, not just the one you bought it at.Originally Posted by dunster
The practice of not having to provide warranty services for sewing machines that were purchased at another vendor provides a disincentive for a dealer to have competitive prices. Combined with the limitations on multiple dealers in a geographic area, it artificially keeps prices high.
It's kept me from purchasing another top-of-the-line sewing machine. I am just not going to pay an amount that is higher than the market rate (as evidenced by e-bay or other competitive pricing sources) because they threaten not to honor my warranty if purchased elsewhere at a lower price.
End of rant. :?
