One of the downsides of this particular treadmills is the short warranty service window. Smith says via the post on Commercial Treadmills, "The warranty for the Reebok Competitor (1 year) is short when compared to other treadmills. With Reebok being such a large company it surprises me that they don’t trust the parts to last past a year."
