The Camsurf Cam may be one of the least complicated systems that a person could install in their vehicle. But if you’re not careful, it could be the worst thing you ever did to your car. Here’s what to know about the system and how to make sure it doesn’t have any side effects.
It doesn’t really matter whether you know much about cars or not because all the information you need is right there on the package you purchase. However, what matters a lot is the manufacturer’s warranty, so read that carefully and make sure that it is in place.
Do you know what the warranty period is?
A new product comes with a warranty period that is intended to give you a time frame for any problems that might occur. You’ll need to take care of it before it becomes too late.
When a Camsurf Cam is replaced by a rebuilt one, you should expect to have the warranty period ended and then, by a specified date, your warranty will become void. This is because you’re allowed to do something that harms the car in order to correct the problem.
So, you might wonder how the manufacturers know when you’ve damaged the vehicle and when you have replaced the Camsurf Cam. They do so by the mechanic’s “test” shop” key.
Will you get a check in the mail?
This may not be the case. If you have the original Camsurf Cam, you need to contact your dealer so they can tell you if you have done anything to your car or your dealer won’t be able to tell you.
Your warranty periods vary and this might be the only part of your purchase that differs. Although the OEM warranty is the same, if the Camsurf Cam came from a different dealer or if it was installed in another car, you may need to pay a different amount.
The truth is, there is a significant difference between the warranty period. In some cases, it may be a year or two long and others, it could be 10 years or more.
I want to stress that you don’t need to worry because it may be a year-long, but the warranty period is the biggest factor when it comes to warranties. The OEM warranty period is what you should be concerned with, not the parts warranty period.
That means that you need to know the actual repair costs
As well as the cost of the parts. If you don’t, you will be out of luck when trying to collect from the warranty.
One thing that you want to keep in mind is that the actual warranty will not apply until the warranty period expires. So, if you want to be certain that the Camsurf Cam is indeed covered, you should get it checked and repaired before the end of the warranty period.
The question is, will it still be covered? It doesn’t matter because the warranty period is the only issue. After the warranty period, the OEM warranty begins, which is generally covered by your dealer.
