Warranty Experiences

Has anyone had luck with warranty paying for a swamped engine? I swamped mine, it runs but thinking it bent a rod or a valve. I somehow fanagled the dealer into convincing their secondary warranty company (not polaris warranty) to sell me a warranty 3 months after the factory warranty was up. I took all plastics off the machine and cleaned everything from dirt. I mean I used q-tips and degreaser, super meticulous. Oil has been changed 4 times so there should be no dirt in the engine, all other fluids changed once.

The sales manager at least has my back, not sure about the service department.

So, let me know your experience and if you have had luck with warranty paying for a swamped engine!

Man problem is that warranty company is gonna send one of thier guys out. If he opens that motor and finds a spec of anything your done. Plus to bend a rod or valave something happened. They don't just bend for just the heck of it. It means something tried to get compressed and it couldn't (water). Don't mean to rain on your parade but any good mechanic will see it a mile away. Wish you luck. Best thing a dealer could do would claim warranty on a newer bike and use it for yours which would be fraud. Also a salesman will tell you anything. Trust me I'm in sales so I know.

Crooked as **** to try to get warranty work for something you did.  Does no one have any shame or sense of right and wrong anymore?

Have y’all heard of insurance that coverage that covers stuff like this?

Once saw a guy drive his rzr in the river. Sunk it and wasn’t at all worried. Said he would call insurance company and have a new motor in by the end of the month. I had never heard of anything like that.

Insurance is something that you pay for.
 
Scamming a manufacturer for warranty work for something that is misuse is criminal.
 
If there is any justice in the world, they'll tear the guys engine down, see that it's been sunk, and then charge him full shop labor for every second they spent on it from the minute he dropped it off.
