A few people have mentioned that car companies offer transferable warranties: However, most car warranties insist that the car is serviced at their official test centres, therefore they still get money if the car is sold on within the warranty period. Plus they still get money from official, after-market parts.
How many here get their Specialized** serviced at an official Specialized** service centre and only use official, Specialized** after market parts? Of course, I do not include Specialized's** ranges of clothing, accessories etc, which are your choice to buy, not a requirement of a warranty.
**insert other company names as required**.
The fact is, that after a bike is sold the first time, that is the end of the money trail, so why would they put money into something they aren't going to get anything from?
