Motorola apologizes for warranty delays, promises solutions
Motorola has been in the wars lately, from its upcoming Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus getting leaked every which way but sideways to a rather embarrassing issue with exchanging devices for those customers covered by warranty for which it copped a horrendous beating in Reddit which resulted in threats of a class action lawsuit.
The problem was that customers sending their Moto device or smartwatch back to Motorola under warranty were promised a replacement within days, but that timeframe often extended into weeks and months. The standard response seemed to be that Motorola didn’t have any replacement devices on hand. Uh huh.
Droid Life picked the story up and got the following response from Motorola:
We’re experiencing delays at our US repair center that is influencing repair times for some customers. We know how important it is for you to get your phone back as quickly as possible so we’re working hard to identify and implement solutions. We are dedicated to the highest quality service and this is not up to our standard of excellence. We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this situation has caused.
While this is hardly a solution for those that have been waiting for months to get a replacement device, at the very least it shows that Motorola is well aware of the situation and has now publicly pledged to address it. If you’re one of the affected masses, Motorola suggests you contact them (again). I’d suggest having the statement on hand and a record of your previous attempts to get your warranty replacement shipped out. Here’s the essential info:
