I had a brake job done at a nationwide tire shop. They had a special deal going for LIFETIME of the car replacement, both labor and parts. Wow, since I planned on keeping the (classic) car forever, I figured it was a no-brainer.

Five years later, it needed new brake shoes. A different shop in another state refused to honor the warranty after the work was done. They said they never heard of such a thing, although I had the paperwork in his face.

To get my car back, I had to pay the bill. Then contact Corporate HQ. Turns out they have both "Franchise" and "Company Owned" stores. After arguing with them, they refunded the full amount.
