Limited warranties are made to the original purchaser only and are non-transferable.

If your receipt states Limited Lifetime Warranty, we will warrant the original part as long as you own the vehicle on which the part was originally installed. Batteries have various warranty periods, some of which are a “pro-rated warranty”. Battery warranties do not cover freezing.
