PENNZOIL LUBRICATION LIMITED WARRANTY
COVERING VEHICLE ENGINE PARTS FOR DO-IT-YOURSELF AND INSTALLED CUSTOMERS BY SOPUS PRODUCTS.
SOPUS Products warrants you, the vehicle owner or lessee whose name appears on the front of this Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty document (“you”), that it will repair or replace, at its option and at its expense, the engine parts listed below, that fail on account of engine wear or which experience abnormal wear, because Pennzoil ® motor oil failed to provide proper lubrication. The Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty includes all the terms listed below. This Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty is free. No one may charge you a fee for it, or change it, or make any exceptions to its terms. This Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty is available on Pennzoil ® motor oil to customers who change their own oil or have their oil changed by an installer, automotive center, commercial fast oil change facility, gasoline service station, or auto dealer and who use Pennzoil ® motor oil.
THIS PENNZOIL LUBRICATION LIMITED WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, AND THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS AND NONE SHALL BE IMPLIED. ALL WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE TERMS AND DURATION OF THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY. SOPUS PRODUCTS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OR FAILURE OF THIS PRODUCT, HOWEVER CAUSED. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED LIMITED WARRANTY LASTS,OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS PENNZOIL LUBRICATION LIMITED WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS, WHICH VARY FROM STATE TO STATE. THIS PENNZOIL LUBRICATION LIMITED WARRANTY DOES NOT EXTEND THE VEHICLE MANUFACTURER’S LIMITED WARRANTY.
A. How Long Does the Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty Last:
• Up to 10 years or 300,000 miles (whichever is first) – if you exclusively use other Pennzoil ® motor oil products (i.e., Pennzoil® Full Synthetic, Pennzoil ®, Pennzoil Professional ® motor oil, Pennzoil Gold ™, Pennzoil ® High Mileage, Pennzoil Platinum ®, or Pennzoil Platinum ® High Mileage Full Synthetic motor oil)
• Once your vehicle has more than 75,000 miles or is more than 72 months old, you may only change from 15 years/ 500,000 miles warranty protection to 10 years/300,000 miles warranty protection. The change becomes effective as soon as you stop using the Pennzoil ® top portfolio level full synthetic motor oil and start using the other Pennzoil motor oil products. This change cannot be reversed.
• Product names may change or a product may be substituted or discontinued without notice at SOPUS Products’ sole discretion.
• Vehicles used, registered or leased for commercial, agricultural or competition purposes do not qualify for the Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty.
