That's an interesting viewpoint. The way I see it, the company's contract to you is they will sell you a product that is working at that time, and guarantee that it will work at least till the end of the warranty period. Assuming this is after the warranty expires, the company's obligation is done already. Things do break out of warranty period. It sucks, but there's not much you can do about it. Electronics do age and fail, just like cars. If you have a car that breaks out of warranty period, do you just say that's crap and throw it away and buy a new one?
It's not about how much they cost. You guy a board, it is defective so not worth what you paid. Then you get caps, which you should not need to replace, and put in the time and effort to change them out. Possibly ruining the board in the process unless you know what you are doing. So now you either have a ruined board the company will not touch or you have a junk board you managed to repair for time and effort that you shouldn't need to invest and you always wonder what the next issue will be.
