Limited One-Year Warranty on Radio(s) & Charger
•
For Products Purchased in Canada
Your new Cobra GMRS radios and charger are covered by a one-year replacement
warranty. If any manufacturing defect becomes apparent in this product within
one year from the original date of purchase, it will be replaced. Please return the
GMRS radio or charger to your dealer with original or copy of dated proof of
purchase. This warranty does not cover damages due to careless handling,
negligence, accident, abuse or failure to follow operating instructions. Alteration
of this product or defacing of the serial number cancels all obligations of this
warranty. This warranty gives you specified legal rights. Additional warranty
rights may be provided by law in some areas.
For Products Purchased in the U.S.A.
Cobra Electronics Corporation warrants that its Cobra GMRS radios and charger,
and the component parts thereof, will be free of defects in workmanship and
materials for a period of one year from the date of first consumer purchase.
This warranty may be enforced by the first consumer purchaser, provided
that the product is utilized within the U.S.A.
Cobra will, without charge, repair or replace, at its option, defective GMRS
radios, chargers, products or component parts upon delivery to the Cobra
Factory Service department, accompanied by proof of the date of first
consumer purchase, such as a duplicated copy of a sales receipt.
You must pay any initial shipping charges required to ship the product for warranty
service, but the return charges will be at Cobra’s expense, if the product is repaired or
replaced under warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may
also have other rights which may vary from state to state.
Exclusions: This limited warranty does not apply: 1) To any product damaged
by accident; 2) In the event of misuse or abuse of the product or as a result
of unauthorized alterations or repairs; 3) If the serial number has been altered,
defaced, or removed; 4) If the owner of the product resides outside the U.S.A.
All implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a
particular purpose are limited in duration to the length of this warranty. Cobra
shall not be liable for any incidental, consequential or other damages; including,
without limitation, damages resulting from loss of use or cost of installation.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts
and/or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitations may not apply to you.
For Products Purchased Outside Canada or the U.S.A.
Please contact your local dealer for warranty information.
