EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (CN) – Warrantech refuses to give customers refunds on canceled car warranties, according to a class action in Madison County Circuit Court.
Lead plaintiff Dean Ochotnicki says Warrantech’s practices violate the Illinois Service Contract Act.
He claims he canceled his five-year or 125,000-mile warranty on his 2005 Chevy Monte Carlo on Nov. 27, 2009, but never received his $1,097 refund.
The class consists of all Illinois residents who bought vehicle warranties from Warrantech since July 24, 2000 who did not receive the proper refund when they canceled the contract.
The class seeks damages for violations of the Illinois Service Contract Act and is represented by Mark Goldenberg of Goldenberg Heller Antognoli.
Defendants include Warrantech Automotive, Butler Financial Solutions, Vemeco and Capital Assurance Risk Retention Group, Warrantech’s insurer.
