Why does my limited warranty for an eBay Motors item now show up in the view item page even though I set the LimitedWarrantyEligible tag to true in the AddItem call?

To specify the Limited Warranty for an eBay Motors items, which gives the buyer the option of Free1 month/1,000 mile Service Agreement, you need to set the following attribute: 

<
Attribute attributeID="25846">
  <Value>
    <ValueLiteral>Engine<ValueLiteral>
    <ValueID>-3<ValueID>
  <Value>
<
Attribute>

Here is a sample AddItem call for a passenger car with the limited warrantyspecified:

<?xml version="1.0"encoding="utf-8"?>
