New York State auto dealer refuses to refund an extended car warranty because the price of the warranty was included in the cost of the car and not listed as separate cost. Corporate will not help with a dealer's contract with a customer; will not comment on dealer practice of hiding warranty cost within price of the car.

Aside from the warranty contract, which indicates clearly that the warranty is refundable, is there any other law or argument that can be used in Small Claims Court to force the dealer to honor the warranty contract?

This issue is very difficult to address without having read the detailed contents of the contract. You may wish to have a local New York Contracts Lawyer look over your contract for possible options. Many lawyers do offer a free consultation.

Was the warranty issued by the dealer or by a third party warranty company. Should say so on the warranty papers.

If it was issued and backed by the dealer then all you need is the contract terms when you go to court.

If the warranty was issued and backed by a third party warranty company then the dealer is out of the picture and you deal with the warranty company.
