About two years ago, I was looking for a higher end consumer snowblower, and I settled upon a Sears Craftsman Snowthrower Model 88115, paying an extra $200 for a 5 year onsite warranty.
I had the machine stored in my garage, and a snowstorm hit, and my driveway is covered in snow, so I pulled out the machine, and it doesn't start.
Now I can't get out, and I need to get to work. Called Sears warranty, and they tell me I have to wait 2 weeks for 'onsite' service.
This is the third time I have had to call, and a wait of 14 days virtually undoes the reason for having a snowblower in the first place - not having to pay another person to do it and to have the convenience of a cleared driveway at soon as possible.
That warranty is almost useless. I am going to have try and get this fixed myself.
Monetary Loss: $1200.
