Default Auto Meter Gauges Question

Do they have life-time warranty. Like, if the freakin' needle pops off can you send it in for a replacement? They are so much more $$ than the competition, they HAVE to come with some type of life-time warranty right?

Thanks.

That's kinda what I was eluding to. The Livorsi gauges are so customizable and look so bad azz and cost a SH!T TON less than the autometers. The only reason I could see that being is they (autometer) have awesome customer service and will stand by their product. So, I'm hoping even with out a warranty I can be like, needle fell out, send me a new gauge(s) (5 to be exact).

We re-did the whole dash on the Top Gun with brushed silver faced Livorsi Guages and purple bezels and absolutely loved them and NEVER had one failure.

Auto meter has been great to me, I sent in my old cig gauges that they didn't make and they reconditioned them all for both engines for 200 bucks, they were awesome to deal with which is why i spent the money for them for the tiger and the 20, 3 full sets of gauges, there is a reason they are more, they are worth it.

Ah! That's kinda what I was hoping. I'd gladly even pay $200 to have them fixed rather than spend 10 to 15 times to replace them. Thanks for the feed back Rob.

I've found that if you email or talk to someone (a real person) at the company a lot of times they help you out.

I had awful luck with Livorsi when I put new gauges on my boat 10 years ago. The tach never worked. I replaced 3 water pressure gauges and finally gave up and tried Autometer. The gauge worked from the start and still works.

I used Autometer in my last project . I will know soon whether it is still a good gauge. In fairness to Livorsi, my first purchase of their gauges was first rate.
