#1

I have a 2014 Rav 4, extended warranty. Over the last couple of weeks the rubber around the sun roof is coming loose and rippling. Anyone with this problem. Dealer where i purchased vehicle says not under extended warranty


#2

Did you ask the dealer, What the hell good is the extended warranty?

You may have to carefully read the warranty and decide if you have a legitimate claim. The claim is probably is to be made to the warranty company and not the dealer. Your dealer may be right, but do your own read.


#4

Not a covered component. Warranties are sold with different levels of coverage, trim and weatherstrips are very rarely covered by extended warranties.


#5

That is probably the case. Still, the person covered by the warranty needs to do his/her own read of the warranty and then decide how to proceed.

I’d guess there’s many owners of sunroof equipped Rav4’s w/that problem. I wouldn’t expect that sort of thing to be covered in an extended warranty myself. Just like oil filter changes and light bulbs aren’t usually covered by an extended warranty. Weather-strip rubbers are a normally wearing item, and are fairly easily replaced. Buy the replacement parts without delay, so you’ll be sure you get them before they are discontinued.
