Visions Warranty Scam

We purchased a $4000 LG TV from Visions in 2009. Within 6 months the TV failed so it was covered under the manufactuerer warranty and it was promptly replaced.

The new LG TV got a red/dot/splatter problem within 8 months...now Visions is telling us the replacement TV is only got a 6 month warranty (not 1 full year from the manufactuer) because they replace the TV and they are counting it from the ORIGINAL TV we purchased.

We had bought the $800 extended warranty so now we had to deal with Visions repair for the red dot problem. They sent out some repair people who tried to fix it on site. Complained it was bad reception cable. Then left.

Still the problem was not fixed. We waited another 3 weeks for Visions to send out another repair company. Instead they send out the first Bozos. This time they take the TV. We were without it for 6 weeks (no loaner given). Finally they bring back the TV and the red/dot problem is solved. WOW!

2 months later we start getting horizontal red stripes appearing on the top of the TV. Back to Visions. This is our 3rd repair. Instead of replacing it under the "lemon clause" they want to fix it...again. Same Bozos from before.

The guy comes out and can't fix it, says its the power supply and Visions will give us a replacement TV. We wait another 6 weeks.

Now finally Visions says we can have a NEW LG TV...but the model we have is now changed and they will give us the LOWER MODEL retailing for about $1500. We paid $4000 and Visions replaces it with a $1500 TV with no PicNPic, and several lesser features.

We don't want that TV so we ask if we can upgrade. They agree to give us a $1200 credit for our $4000 18 mo old TV[/B]! :eek: Now lets do the math:

We paid an extra $800 for the TV warranty and Visions gives us a $1200 credit = $400 is what they are valuing our TV. We had to pay an extra $2000 on top of the $1200 credit just to get the TV with the same features as our old LG. This time we purchased Panasonic TV.

We will never purchase Visions Extended Warranty ever again. They jerk you around with the repairs, and then give you the depreciated value of your TV. Better to go to Future Shop who will replace your TV with no quesitons asked.
