judy was driving a joeks wagon passat when she bought that passat in redwood city, she also bought a few optional extended warranties to go along with it. >> i just bought the package i wanted the safety, the security, if i got dinged in the back, i wanted it fixed and i didn't want the hassle. and all of those things were covered by these warranties. >> reporter: when judy traded in the passat for her audi earlier this year, board walk told her she'd get a prorated refund but she didn't. she said she called the dealer several times asking for her money. >> i got no phone calls back. >> reporter: so judy reached out to us. >> i contacted nbc and nbc contacted volkswagen international and two days later, the check was in the mail. >> reporter: judy's refund? more than $6,000. >> i'm terribly grateful, because what's right is right, and it shouldn't take higher powers to get the job done, but
7:52 am
it does. and thank you, thank you, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome, you're welcome, you're welcome, judy. we're happy to help out. vw's corporate office declined to comment for this story. boardwalk volkswagen also declined to comment. there isn't a law requiring universal terms and conditions for extended warranties. they vary, so you need to read the fine print. california department of insurance offers this advice. ask about a prorated refund before buying a warranty. if you won't get it, weigh the value of that warranty against how long you plan to keep the car. if you have a consumer complaint, please call us. the number is 888-996-tips or log on to our website, nbc bay area.com/response. once you're there, click the yellow submit tips bar for our consumer clant form. you can share documents, photos, and videos to help us investigate your case. we respond to every call, every e-mail. have a great weekend, guys. well, we've all heard stories about how real estate
