Don't hesitate to call if you'd like to discuss this plan in more detail.Notes to remember:
- A few well known companies offer a 24-60 month unlimited mile warranty, but the contract clearly states that gradual wear and tear of a covered part isn't covered. The "gradual" makes it difficult to predict. I've witnessed some machines over 3,000 miles approved for a replacement part whereas some machines with 1900 miles will be denied. It's a terrible situation to be in whether you're the dealer or the end user because the coverage isn't consistent.
- Remember, the dealer plays a role when reporting the claim. When the service department is grumpy, too busy, or lacks customer service simply pick a different dealer
- The inspector is the wild card because anyone could be assigned to your unit if the claim exceeds over 750-1500 dollars. One inspector may not know the difference between a turbo and non turbo setup whereas another inspector may notice all the changes.
- I can't stress how important it is to clean your machine before dropping it off at your favorite garage. I know some people get annoyed the machine failed and deliver it straight to the dealer from the trail or farm. This is a terrible idea and most likely will cost you money if a picky inspector is assigned to your vehicle as they may determine misuse or abuse.
- Provide your service records if an engine, transmission, or front differential failure occurs while dropping off your unit. You be surprised how often some companies approve transmission claims over the phone vs sending out an inspector if service records readily available.
