Nice difference.® Warranty
At Christian Brothers Automotive, we pride ourselves on offering a Nice difference.® to our customers. Whether it’s providing a cold beverage while you wait or pulling your vehicle right up to the door, we always strive to go the extra mile. That’s why we chose a warranty that goes above and beyond.
Most auto repair warranties expire at the earlier of the two limits, miles or months. The warranty we offer is the opposite. Your warranty will expire after two years or 24,000 miles—whichever benefits you the most.
That means if it takes you three years to put 24,000 miles on your car, your warranty will still be valid for that third year. But if you put 40,000 miles on your car in two years, your warranty will still be valid until the end of the second year.
Our 2-year/24,000-mile warranty is valid at every Christian Brothers location nationwide. If you have your car repaired at our Amarillo location and then the new part fails while you’re on vacation in Atlanta, you’re covered. Simply take your vehicle to any of our locations and we’ll take care of you.
The Christian Brothers Automotive Nice difference.® Warranty, the “Warranty”, is a 2-year/24,000-mile limited warranty on labor and new components installed against defects in manufacturer workmanship and materials. Normal operational wear, excessive or abusive use, performance modifications, and commercial use are not applicable.
Any limitations and exclusions detailed in your specific repair invoice are in addition to the following and take precedence over the general Terms, Limitations, and Exclusions.
The earliest effective date of the Warranty is 7/1/2013.
All Warranty service must be authorized by the originating Christian Brothers facility IN ADVANCE. Repairs performed without prior authorization will not be eligible for coverage or reimbursement under this Warranty. Authorization is available only during normal Christian Brothers business days and hours (7am – 6pm Monday through Friday, excluding holidays).
Warranty coverage will not exceed the dollar amount of the original repair.
Christian Brothers Automotive may utilize a third-party warranty provider for repairs beyond 25 miles from the originating repair facility. Authorization from this third-party provider must be obtained before Warranty repairs are approved or initiated.

Labor reimbursement resulting from the failure of any such part, and any damage related to or caused by the installed customer-supplied part, is not eligible for Warranty coverage. All customer-supplied parts may be installed on “as-is” basis, subject to a higher published installation labor rate, and/or at the discretion of the individual Christian Brothers Automotive location.
