Do NOT get an extended warranty for Lowe's lawnmower. We bought a Troy Bilt mower one year ago.
This year, it wouldn't start. Called Lowe's and they sent us to a service center 15 miles away - Northern Tool. They charged us $60 and said it was water in the tank and not covered under warranty. Took the mower home and it ran horribly.
Sounded like a car in constant rev, so we took it back and they tried again. Brought it home - same problem. Tried to mow the lawn anyway and it died any time there was any exertion on the engine - slight uphill grade, small clump of weeds, etc. Obviously, Northern Tool didn't know what they were doing.
Called Lowe's again, and their only solution is to have me take it to another dealer - minimum 20 miles away. They offered nothing in compensation for my $60 or my 90 miles in round trips for incompetent service. Also would not refund my cost of their useless warranty.
I live in Atlanta, not the boonies, and there are no "authorized" service centers within 20 miles. Warranty is useless to me.
