Our Warranty

Shepards Automotive Center Warranty


Our warranty guarantees the work performed by Shepards Automotive Center so long as said vehicle remains under the present ownership, items on the repair order such as, Sublet Work, or Sublet Labor, are subject to the guarantee of those suppliers. This warranty shall only apply if the defects occurred under normal driving conditions and not where any vehicle has been subjected to accidents, negligence, abuse, or misuse. Specifically excluded from this Limited Warranty are ordinary wear, tear and deterioration, rust, corrosion, scratches, and gravel or other marks or defects acquired from driving conditions. This Limited Warranty shall only apply if the vehicle is returned to Shepards Automotive Center and we are given the opportunity to perform the warranty service. This Limited Warranty is divided into four parts with specific additional conditions applying to each part as follows:

Metal Work: Shepards Automotive Center provides a lifetime of Limited Warranty against defective workmanship including welding and the application of materials utilized in making collision repairs to industry standards against cracking, flaking, pitting, or other non-excluded deterioration. Shepards Automotive Center, in its sole discretion, shall repair or replace and repaint any warranted metalwork.

Painting, Stripes, and Decals: Shepards Automotive Center provides a Limited Warranty on painting-related priming and paint work against solvent blistering, peeling, hazing, flaking, and cracking, and a Limited Warranty on the application and adhesion of decorative stripes and decals, excluding defects which are caused by extreme environmental conditions to which the vehicle may be exposed. This shop will, at our sole discretion, re-prime, re-stripe, or re-decal the specific section or sections of the vehicle warranted hereby. The painting, stripes and decal warranty is only valid when the paint and/or decals where applied over original factory finishes that were free of defect.

Parts: Shepards Automotive Center guarantees that parts or materials used by us are of top quality. Those parts or materials are subject to the guarantee of that supplier. We will assist in handling any claim under the supplier’s guarantee. We guarantee that used parts or parts other than original equipment manufactured parts were not used without authorization from you as noted on your repair order.

Mechanical Repairs: Shepards Automotive Center provides a Limited Warranty on all mechanical repairs pertaining directly to original collision damage, excluding suspension, air conditioning, or other electrical assemblies or components. This shop will, as our sole option, re-repair any mechanical assembly or component warranted hereby.

Parts: Shepards Automotive Center does not warrant parts. Parts or components or subassemblies are subject to the warranties of the supplier/manufacturer which are hereby assigned to you. Shepards Automotive Center will assist you in handling any claim under the supplier manufacturer’s guaranty.
