That's the problem with dishonesty. There is a tipping point where people just assume everyone is dishonest. I gave people a one year warranty, period. Some would ask about mileage, unlimited. Kept it simple and honored it, with a single exception, Proveable owner abuse.
A guy calls me about an alternator warranty. When he comes in the charge wire from the alternator is burned in two. Battery terminals are spot melted from reverse polarity jump starting. I spliced the burned wire and told him what had been done. Of course he denies everything. That was your warranty expiring, had you done that to a new car it would NOT be covered by warranty since it is obvious proveable abuse and ignorance is NOT an excuse.
The charging system still worked but the potential damage COULD have totalled the car.
In 14 years I never warranted a Nissan factory rebuilt alternator, $5 million in repairs over that time period.
So glad I don't have to deal with casual liars these days.
