Long story: (scroll for the short story) I come from a recliner family. Everyone has a recliner they love and use the most. When I went to buy my first one, I knew I wanted La-Z-Boy because until that point, I was still using my parents' recliner which was over 25 years old at the time. I ended up finding a reasonably priced couch that matched and bought the set. We are now 7 years later, and my recliner broke. It has been pretty well used. I did work 80+ hour work weeks for most of the 7 years, but I live alone, so I typically eat and grade papers in it. So it has been well loved. La-Z-Boy has a lifetime warranty. One of the other reasons I went with them. Well, apparently labor isn't covered. When I called, they said it was $109 for the service call and repair. I wasn't pleased with the price, but I am going nuts without the foot rest (I put papers on it while grading :lol, so it was worth it. Well, I called to confirm my repair appointment. That is when they told me that the $109 was for the first hour only. Every 15 minutes was an additional $30. They estimate the repair will take 2-3.5 HOURS!!! That is $229-$409!!! I can buy a new one for not much more than that. Needless to say, I am very angry with La-Z-Boy. I guess I'm going to buy a new recliner, since I'm not spending that on a 7 year old recliner. Since I have had it with La-Z-Boy, I'm looking for brand recommendations. My sister was given a cheap $350 recliner as a baby shower gift. She really only sat in it while nursing and it is falling apart. She's had it for about a year. So I know a brand to avoid. Anyone have brand suggestions? Short story: I'm angry with La-Z-Boy and need a new recliner. I'm looking for a durable brand so that I can purchase a replacement.
