BANDAG NATIONAL WARRANTY (CANADA)

  1. WARRANTY PERIOD. Every tire retreaded or repaired pursuant to a National Fleet Customer Agreement (or other form of agreement with Bridgestone Canada Inc. and Bandag Canada Ltd. (collectively, “Bridgestone”)) using the BANDAG® process by a franchised dealer of Bridgestone Bandag, LLC (“Bandag”) (a “BANDAG® Retread”) is warranted by Bandag Canada Ltd. (“Bandag”) against:
    1. Failure due to defects in workmanship and materials, other than casing defects, for a period of four years (two years for InterTransit RibTM Radial, InterTransit RibTM Bias, and any other application specific intermodal retread design (collectively, “Intermodal Retreads”); and
    2. Failure due to casing defects, for a period of two years.

    The warranty period begins on the later of: (i) the date the BANDAG Retread is manufactured, as indicated by the date portion of the DOT code (the “Manufacture Date”), or, (ii) the date of purchase, if Proof of Purchase is provided. “Proof of Purchase” means the customer’s original copy of the retread invoice or, in a Trade Vehicle Situation (as defined in Section 4), the vehicle bill of sale. The “Warranty Adjustment Date” is the date on which the customer makes a warranty claim.

  2. WARRANTY CREDIT CALCULATION. In the event of a tire failure covered by this warranty, a credit (“Warranty Credit”) will be issued toward the then current price of a BANDAG Retread, comparable in both tread design and tread depth. The Warranty Credit will be the product of the “Warranty Credit Base” multiplied by the applicable adjustment percentage (the “Adjustment Percentage”) determined in Section 3 below. If the customer provides a Proof of Purchase that separately itemizes the cost of the BANDAG Retread, the Warranty Credit Base will be the purchase price of the BANDAG Retread shown on the Proof of Purchase. In all other cases, the Warranty Credit Base will be the customer’s current buying price for the BANDAG Retread and/or repairs at the Warranty Adjustment Date.
