Freightliner introduces four year or 800,000km warranty


Freightliner introduces four year or 800,000km warranty – Freightliner has introduced Australia’s best warranty on any American truck.

The generous extended warranty covers the Argosy cab-over and Coronado 114 conventional truck for four years or 800,000km.

The extended warranty is not a short term offer, and will be made available for new customers all the way through until December 31, 2016.

“Freightliner is committed to supporting our customers and their businesses,” says Freightliner Australia director, Stephen Downes.

“Offering Australia’s best warranty on any American truck is a good example of that commitment.”

Mr Downes says Freightliner is prepared to back its product because of its quality.

“We are confident in our product and we want new customers to be able to share our confidence by knowing the truck is covered in the rare event there is an issue,” he says.

Freightliner customers are also supported by one of the strongest service networks in Australia, which is made up of more than 40 service points.

All Freightliner trucks are covered by a standard one year/unlimited km warranty, while the extended warranty has been introduced for the most popular models in the range, the Argosy and Coronado 114.

There are two parts to the extended warranty program. The first is the basic complimentary extended warranty for three years/800,000km, which incorporates the components originally covered by the basic vehicle warranty.

There is also the drivetrain component complimentary extended warranty for two years/800,000km, which covers such items as the transmission, clutch, driving axles and more.

Neither the standard or extended warranties cover the truck’s engine, which is covered by the engine manufacturer, being either Detroit or Cummins.

Potential customers should consult a Freightliner dealer for further details and exclusions.

The introduction of the extended warranty program comes as Freightliner further strengthens its product offering with the Cummins ISXe5 Argosy cab-over, the first Argosy to be offered with Selective Catalytic Reduction. Unlike some of its competitors, Freightliner offers its customers the choice of a Detroit engine or an optional Cummins powerplant in either Coronado or Argosy.
