Carquest Filters - Limited Warranty
Carquest ("we," "us," or "our") filters are warranted to be free from manufacturer's defects in material, workmanship, or design in accordance with the terms and conditions described below. Our automotive filters are manufactured to high quality standards and guaranteed to meet fit, form, and function in accordance with Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) test procedures.
This limited warranty is effective for the number of miles and driving severity published in the owner’s vehicle manual as the recommended service interval for filter replacements ("Warranty Period"). We will replace, free of charge, any Filter which, under normal conditions of use, is proven to be defective in material or workmanship and is within the Warranty Period. If Carquest further determines, in our sole discretion, that the alleged defective Filter caused engine damage during the Warranty Period, we will also repair or replace any damaged engine parts.
New car warranties remain in effect when our filters are used in accordance to the engine manufacturer's change intervals.
THIS LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER misapplication, misinstallation, and damages or failure caused by rust or corrosion. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS VOID under the following circumstances:
- Use of motor oil other than the viscosity and type as recommended in the owner's vehicle manual;
- Damage or failure caused by misuse, negligence, modification, accidents, or abuse;
- Damage or failure caused by non-approved or non-recommended applications, from use in competitive racing, use on modified high performance engines, or in any aircraft or aviation application;
- Damage or failure caused by unauthorized service or use of unauthorized parts; and
- Filters which are submitted in a condition that prohibits testing to validate any alleged defect or malfunction.
Claims for engine repairs provided under this warranty must be submitted within 30 days after discovery of damage. Our and our manufacturer’s technical services departments reserve the right to examine the engine and filter to determine the amount of damage and whether it was caused by a defective filter. This warranty DOES NOT COVER any product that has been subjected to misuse, neglect, negligence, or accident or that has been improperly maintained, operated, or installed. This warranty also DOES NOT APPLY if the filter has been used for non-approved or non-recommended applications or if used in competitive racing, on modified high performance engines, or in any aircraft or aviation application. The warranty DOES NOT APPLY to any damage to the product that is the result of rust or corrosion.
THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED. CARQUEST SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM OR CAUSED BY THE USE, OPERATION, FAILURE OR DEFECT OF ANY CARQUEST FILTER. Some states and other local jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
