OIC orders Fife RV & Auto Center to stop selling warranties

OIC has ordered Fife RV & Auto Center to stop selling vehicle protection product warranties effective immediately. The company has been selling a warranty to repair any surface damage on the interior and exterior of vehicles. Since 2012, the company has sold 236 warranties to Washington consumers without being authorized to do so.    

Warranties are considered insurance under Washington state law and businesses must be authorized to sell them in Washington state.

The company has a right to demand a hearing and it must honor the terms of all warranties it sold to Washington consumers. Read more about warranties and service contracts sold in Washington.
