Every day businesses are using every marketing technique possible to convince you that their products are the best of the best. What they don’t tell you however, is when those same products have manufacturing faults, faults that can lead to free fixes under warranty years after purchase or in some cases full refunds due to a product recall.
Many businesses will continue to highly promote products with known faults that will require repairs, and if questioned will argue that as long as the item is repaired for free, it is not a problem for the consumer and if worst comes to worst, they can always get a refund. The reality however is that on big ticket items such as large screen TVs, white goods etc, many do not have the finances available to buy replacements while waiting 14 – 30 days for a refund.
Bug Locker empowers consumers by ensuring they have the information they need to make an informed choice before making a purchase. We are a one-stop location for bugs, issues, product recall information and more. We are creating a global database of product recalls by collating information from organisations around the world including the OECD, UK Trading Standards and US CPSC. We also provide the facility for consumers to report their suspected product bugs and issues here where they can be discussed, reviewed and voted on by our great community.
Working together we can ensure that nobody needs to suffer with buggy or faulty products when there are great alternatives to meet their needs.
