I am wondering. Normally extended warranty (like 2 years) is provided against manufacturing faults because the seller is convinced that his products are manufactured free of faults or he is not providing it because he is not certain.
By not providing warranty for for an extended period of time he puts the risk of his own manufacturing issues to the customer side. Lower prices are the result, since the customer is bearing that risk. It also leads to an advantage over competition regardless of quality control. Great, but it’s gambling from a customers perspective.
But then: “buying” warranty is the wring terminology, because in reality the customer is buying an insurance against the sellers manufacturing faults. Nothing else, because warranty can’t be purchased since it’s either provided by default or not.
It’s easier in the EU where you are required by law to provide a 2 years warranty. This applies for all products sold in the EU by the way!
