... Yes it's sucks, but why so you think the company puts a warranty on things? Cause that about how long they last before the object will break from use. You need to look ahead and saves up if the warranty expires in 10 years that's how long you have to save up for a new one. It's like an expiration date. If it last longer your lucky.
#24, and OP: While planning ahead to buy a replacement is always a good idea, not everything is built to last only as long as its warranty. When something dies so immediately after its warranty expires, it's worth contacting the company and finding out whether they'd still honor it or would at least offer a repair/replacement discount. At the worst, they'll say no, but many companies will go the extra step -- especially when you're otherwise about to switch brand loyalties to buy a new one from anyone other than them, and will tell all and sundry about your frustrating experience with that company's product.
it always works the way, things break right after the warranty is up.
#2, that's the best way from the manufacturer's point of view. Not only do they lose money if their product rated for 20 years lasts fifty, but sometimes they get sued if a 30-year-old unit fucks up. It's hard to convince a jury they weren't supposed to be using such an outdated product.
While OP runs out of the house in a panic they get attacked by the neighbors thought to be friendly dog then realizes the car is in the shop their cell phone just died and it starts raining on the one day when no one seems to be home. Of course all in the same day
