When searching for a new car or truck, you may not be entirely interested in the details of its engine, transmission, suspension or other mechanical parts. But everyone becomes interested when one of those parts fails and needs to be replaced.


That’s when warranty comes in. Warranty acts a bit like an insurance policy. Whenever something breaks or needs maintenance, the manufacturer (or, rather, a certified dealership representing the manufacturer such as El Cajon Mitsubishi) will fix the problem for you free of charge, provided it’s covered by the warranty.


But what is covered and how long it’s covered will vary depending on the manufacturer, and that’s where Mitsubishi’s warranties look very good. So here’s a brief Mitsubishi warranty comparison vs. other manufacturers.


Mitsubishi’s Powertrain Limited Warranty lasts 10 years or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.  That’s at least five years and 40,000 miles more coverage than you get from Toyota, Honda, Ford, Mazda, Subaru, Volkswagen and just about every other car manufacturer imaginable. And that’s just the Powertrain Warranty — the warranty that covers repairs and replacements to your engine, transmission, and the ilk.


Similarly, Mitsubishi’s New Vehicle Limited Warranty lasts five years or 60,000 miles, which exceeds similar warranties offered by the vehicle manufacturers mentioned above, by an average of two years and 14,000 miles.


Mitsubishi vehicles also come with a New Vehicle Limited Warranty that covers all parts of your Mitsubishi for five years or 60,000 miles, except for battery, tires, air conditioner refrigerant, light bulbs and entertainment components (which actually carry their own warranties).


In other words, if you want the peace of mind that can only come with a great warranty, it’s a good bet to go with Mitsubishi. Learn more about all of the advantages of shopping Mitsubishi at El Cajon Mitsubishi.
