BraunAbility Vans Conversion Warranty Information
Conversion Warranty Information
Unlike direct mobility sellers, BraunAbility does not require customers to find their own servicing dealer. This is a huge benefit when purchasing a BraunAbility mobility product. BraunAbility also has a network of dealers that support the customer 24/7, and BraunAbility supports the dealer network 24/7, so you are in the best hands. Further, our dealers are factory-trained not only on the BraunAbility conversion, but on the aftermarket equipment that can be installed on the wheelchair accessible vehicle. The below text outlines the content of a BraunAbility conversion warranty.
Warranty and Registration Instructions
Examine your lowered floor minivan conversion for any damage. Should any damage have occurred during delivery, notify the carrier at once with any claims.
Review the service agreement, delivery checklist, and warranty registration form with your sales representative. The form must be signed by the consumer and retailer. A hard copy is available upon request.
The warranty registration form must be processed electronically by the sales representative to activate the warranty. This warranty contains detailed terms and provisions applicable to the vehicles.
Record the last eight digits of the vehicle identification number (VIN) for future reference. This information must be provided when filing a warranty claim or ordering parts.
Warranty Coverage and Warranty Coverage Time Periods
The BraunAbility ("Braun") warranty covers Braun's modifications and alterations for associated parts for three (3) years or the first thirty-six thousand (36,000) miles, whichever comes first. In addition, the corrosion protections portion of this warranty applies to covered parts (see below) for 5 years and unlimited miles. The 3 year/36,000 mile limited warranty covers substantial defects in materials and workmanship attributable to Braun on the conversion van frame, floor structural components, ramp, door and associated structural components, electrical components, including but not limited to switches, wires, connectors, and the controller and interior appearance items such as the floor covering and the lower door extension assemblies. The corrosion warranty covers substantial defects in materials and workmanship attributable to Braun of the metal fabrication on or of the frame, floor, and lower door extensions. These warranty periods begin on the date that the product is delivered to the first retail purchaser by an independent, authorized dealer of Braun, or, if the dealer places the product into any type of service prior to retail sale, on the date the dealer first places the products in such service.
This limited warranty applies to the first consumer purchases and the next subsequent owner only. This limited warranty may be transferred once during the warranty period. However, the subsequent owner must submit a warranty transfer form to Braun to make the warranty transfer effective. All rights and limitations within this warranty are applicable to the original and subsequent owner of the product. The subsequent owner's warranty coverage period is the remaining balance of the warranty coverage period that the prior owner was entitled to under this limited warranty. Warranty transfer forms can be obtained from any independent, authorized dealer, which must be submitted to Braun within thirty (30) days from the subsequent owner's purchase, and proof of the purchase date must be supplied with the form.
What Braun Will Do to Correct Problems
In the event that a substantial defect in material or workmanship, attributable to Braun, is found to exist during the warranty coverage periods, it will be repaired or replaced, at Braun's expense, without charge to the owner, in accordance with the terms. conditions and limitations of this limited warranty.
Braun's obligation to repair or replace defective materials or workmanship is the sole obligation of Braun under this limited warranty. Braun reserves the right to use new or remanufactured party of similar quality to complete any work and to make parts and design changes from time to time without notice to anyone. Braun reserves the right to make changes in the design or material of its products without incurring any obligation to incorporate such changes in any previously manufactured product. Braun makes no warranty as to the future performance of this product, and this limited warranty is not intended to extend to the future performance of the product. In addition, the owner's obligation to notify Braun, or one of its authorized, independent dealers, of a claimed defect does not modify any obligation placed on the owner to contact Braun directly when attempting to pursue remedies under state or federal law.
Limitations, Exclusions, and Disclaimer of Implied Warranties
Any implied warranty that is found to arise by way of state or federal law, including any implied warranty of merchantability or any implied warranty of fitness, is limited in duration of this limited warranty and is limited in scope of coverage to the scope of coverage of this limited warranty. Braun disclaims any express or implied warranty, including any implied warranty of fitness or merchantability, on items excluded from coverage as set forth in this limited warranty. Braun makes no warranty of any nature beyond that contained in this limited warranty. No one has authority to enlarge, amend or modify this limited warranty, and Braun does not authorize anyone to create any other obligation for it regarding this product. Braun is not responsible for any representation, promise or warranty made by any independent dealer or other person beyond what is expressly stated in this limited warranty. Any selling or servicing dealer is not Braun's agent, but an independent entity.
Braun shall not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages that may result from breach of this limited warranty or any implied warranty. This exclusion of consequential and incidental damages shall be independent of any failure of the essential purpose of any warranty, and this exclusion shall survive any determination that this limited warranty or any implied warranty has failed of its essential purpose. This warranty does not cover, and in no event shall Braun be liable for towing charges, travel, lodging, or any other expense incurred due to the loss of use of product or other reason.
Some states do not allow limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusions may not apply to you.

You must inspect the product for this type of damage when you take delivery.

Events Discharging Braun From Obligation Under Warranty
The following shall completely discharge Braun from any express or implied warranty obligation to repair or replace anything and void this warranty: any rental or other commercial use or purchase of the product (as defined in this warranty), misuse, neglect, collision, accidents, failure to provide routine maintenance (See Owner's Manual), unauthorized alteration, off-road use, damage from weather or the environment, theft, vandalism, tampering, fire, explosions, overloading the product and odometer tampering.
Any action to enforce any portion of this limited warranty, or any implied warranty, must be commenced within six (6) months after expiration of the warranty coverage period designated above or the action will be barred because of the passage of time. Any performance of repairs shall not suspend this limitation period from expiring. Any performance of repairs after the warranty coverage period has expired or performance of repairs regarding any thing excluded from coverage under this limited warranty shall be considered "good will" repairs, and they will not alter the terms of this limited warranty or extend any warranty coverage period of the filing limitation period in this paragraph. In addition, since it is reasonable to expect that the product will need some service during the warranty period, this warranty does not extend to future performance. It only sets forth what Braun will do and does not guarantee anything about the product for any time period. Nothing in this warranty, or any action of Braun, or any agent of Braun, shall be interpreted as an extension of any warranty period of the filing limitation period in this paragraph. Some states do not allow a reduction in the statute of limitations, so this reduction may not apply to you.
Warranty Registration and Miscellaneous
Your warranty registration records should be completed and delivered to the appropriate companies, including the Braun Delivery Checklist & Warranty form. That form must be returned to Braun within twenty (20) days of purchase. The Braun warranty will not be registered unless this warranty registration is completed and received by Braun. Failure to file this warranty registration with Braun will not affect your rights under this limited warranty as long as you can present proof of purchase, but it can cause delays in obtaining the benefits of this limited warranty, and it changes the start date of the warranty to the date of final assembly of the product by Braun.
Braun agrees to repair or replace any of its factory-installed parts found to have substantial defects within the appropriate warranty period designated above, provided that the repair is authorized by Braun and carried out by an authorized service center (a Braun labor schedule determines cost allowance for repairs). Braun will not honor any warranty claim for repairs or replacement of parts unless the claim is submitted with the appropriate paperwork, and the work is completed by an independent, factory-authorized service center. The appropriate paperwork can be obtained by written or phone contact with Braun and the contact information in this warranty.
Braun reserves the right to designate where any warranty work can be performed. Braun also reserves the right to examine any defective workmanship or part prior to giving any authorization for warranty work. Braun's return authorization procedure must be adhered to in order to process any warranty claims.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
