Powermax warranty is a joke

What is the deal with shipping my turbo to them and them saying it takes 6 weeks to decide on warranty. Truck has had oil changes every 4k with rotella t6 and oem oil filter, never shut off with egts above 300, never had egts above 1200, oem air filter it whole life, basically a very well maintained vehicle. Compressor wheel showed no FOD, turbine showed no signs of high egts. Just plain and simple the bearings wore out and and radial play was enough to start causing housing damage. Its amazing how they think 6 weeks is acceptable. Turbo is only 8-10 months old to. So now im debating buying another with the batmowheel, or getting a fixed just becuase i am fed up with garrette.

That sucks. I think 6 weeks is a little much as well. I could understand a 3 week turn around.

Re: Powermax warranty is a joke

That really doesnt make sense. 6 weeks to determine a faulty turbo?

Re: Powermax warranty is a joke

Sorry to hear that, seems excessive.

I would just call every single day. Being polite but persistent. When they get annoyed from always hearing from you, I would continue to be polite but persistent. Being a dic (not saying you are, but in general) will not get you very far.

Re: Powermax warranty is a joke

That sucks. If you don't have a turbo to put in your out of comission for 6 weeks. You basically are stuck buying a replacement then hoping they credit you the cost I guess. Non vgt turbos are looking better and better

Thats pretty standard Garrett warranty talk. Are you dealing with your vendor you bought it from?
