Understanding Power Wheels Warranty

Any part in the Power Wheels, like battery, motor, or wiring, can malfunction. You can repair these malfunctions under the Power Wheels Warranty claim, so you do not have to pay.

The Power Wheels offer a bumper-to-bumper warranty for one year and a battery warranty for six months. These warranties are conditional, which only covers the malfunctions caused by the normal use of the Power Wheels. Accidentally damaged, abused, and unreasonably used parts are not covered.

Types of Power Wheels Warranty

Different brands in Power Wheels toys offer different warranties based on the time limit and the warranty items. The main Fisher-Price brand, which is the head brand of Power Wheels, offers two types of warranties: bumper-to-bumper warranty and battery warranty.

Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty

The bumper-to-bumper warranty in Power Wheels covers almost all the parts between the front and rear bumper. This warranty is for the defects in materials and workmanship. It is a one-year limited warranty provided by the Power Wheels brand. 

The warranty only covers the damages done on the normal use. If you have tried to repair the part yourself, that cannot be claimed in the warranty. Only the original buyer can claim the warranty. The warranty starts from the day of purchase. We recommend you do not repair the vehicle at home if the product still has a warranty.

What is Covered in Bumper to Bumper Warranty?

As mentioned above, the bumper-to-bumper warranty covers all the Power Wheels parts, which have malfunctions on normal use. It includes: 

  • Service from authorized expert
  • Motor
  • Controller
  • Wheels
  • Remote control
  • Wiring
  • Fuses
  • Lights
  • Music system
  • Radio etc

What is Not Covered in Bumper to Bumper Warranty?

The bumper-to-bumper warranty is conditional; it does cover all the parts mentioned above but only in particular conditions. The bumper-to-bumper warranty cannot be claimed if:

  • If you have tried to repair the part at home
  • Hired anybody to repair it who Power Wheels do not authorize.
  • Cosmetic parts (the parts which are not essential for any operation like mirrors and stickers)
  • Excess used tires (including excess wear and tear).
  • Damages caused by unreasonable use or misuse.
  • Damages caused by neglecting.
  • Damages caused by accident and abuse.
  • The battery is not covered in this warranty.
  • Modified Power Wheels in any way.
  • Rented or used for commercial purposes.
  • Damage caused by being overweight.
  • Any other thing violated from the instruction manual.

It should be mentioned that Power Wheels is not liable to any unintentional or intentional damage to any part of the ride-on toy.

Battery Warranty

The battery is not covered in Power Wheels bumper-to-bumper warranty; Power Wheels offer six months limited warranty for the battery.

This warranty is for the defects in materials of battery and the service of the battery. The warranty starts from the day of purchase.

What is Covered in Battery Warranty?

The battery warranty only covers the batteries that are dead on normal use. Suppose you have to replace a battery that is dead after the warranty limit.

In that case, you can opt to buy one from the Power Wheels brand because every battery from Power Wheels has a six-month warranty, no matter if it is the stock or a replacement battery. The replacement batteries are expensive, almost half of the price of Power Wheels.

What is Not Covered in Battery Warranty?

Again the battery warranty is conditional same as the bumper-to-bumper warranty. The battery warranty can not be claimed if:

  • Repaired battery or the battery tried to repair.
  • The battery is dead by overcharging.
  • Discharged battery because of long time no use.
  • Battery damaged by misuse, accident, and neglect.
  • The battery is used for other purposes.

Pros and Cons Power Wheels Warranty?

  • One year and six months-long periods in comparison to other brands’ 90 days warranty

How to Claim the Power Wheels Warranty?

Who Can Claim the Power Wheels Warranty?

Only the original buyer can claim the Power Wheels warranty; you have to buy the Power Wheels from authorized dealers.

Power Wheels Warranty Warning

As per Power Wheels warranty instructions: “This warranty does not cover, and is intended to exclude, any liability on the part of Power Wheels for any indirect or consequential damages for breach of warranty, whether under this warranty or implied by law.”

Because certain jurisdictions do not permit the exclusion or limitation, this restriction may not apply to you.”

Is It Possible to Get the Power Wheels Warranty Extended?

No, there is no such thing provided by the Fisher-Price. You can not extend the warranty of Power Wheels. However, if you want to repair your toy after the warranty, you can opt for the authorized power wheels stores where the experts provide the same services but with payment.

Or you can opt for the insurance plans offered by different agencies.

Are there any Aftermarket Protection Plans for Power Wheels Similar to the Warranty?

Yes, many aftermarket agencies provide protection plans for toys and electronics, including the Power Wheels. These protection plans cover more things and have fewer conditions on the repair claim than the Power Wheels warranty.

These protection plans are paid and sometimes similar to the price of Power Wheels itself. 

The only problem with these protection plans is that they only cover the products bought in the last 30 days. Your warranty will still be in use for malfunction.

Once the warranty is finished, the malfunctions are also covered in the plan. These protection plans have a period of three years or more.
