He can probably use a Yeshiva geared towards his needs, not just a mentor. There are numerous mesivtas for this crowd (Eatontown, Englewood, and plenty of others). Is there anyone who knows him well that knows yeshivas and can give a recommendation?

Match their warranty? Don't think anyone does.

Have you ever taken advantage of thier warranty? It sounds great, but it isn't practical.

I have Costco tires. One of my tires has a leak. I can't plug it because it will void the warranty. Instead I need to make an appointment, then drive there and get it fixed.

I'm assuming it will take 1.5 hours total. I can get it plugged in 10 min.

The other catch is that if your tire needs to be replaced bec irreparable, they prorate the cost of the new tire based on the tread left on the old tire.

Basically, it's not as amazing as it sounds 🙂
