The Mitsubishi warranty is the best in the world…..and they have the awards to prove it. But what does that mean? It means their Powertrain Warranty and their Comprehensive (bumper to bumper) Warranty covers more components than any other auto maker.
So how can you improve on this? You can extend it.
During September, all new Mitsubishi purchasers will receive a 10-10-10 warranty. Brass tacks? That means you receive the regular 10 year Powertrain Warranty that is always offered by Mitsubishi Canada, but instead of 5 years/100 k Bumper to Bumper you receive 10 years/160 k. Instead of 5 years/unlimited km Roadside Assistance, you receive 10 years/unlimited km.
The fine print is this:
- Mitsubishi offers a 5 Year/100 km PLATINUM warranty with every vehicle, which is why they can say they have the best, as most dealers off the ‘gold’ warranty, or they offer the platinum for a smaller time allotment.
- With this upgrade, your additional 5 years bumper to bumper is GOLD warranty – which is still incredible, just not the ‘best in the world’.
- Roadside Assistance and Powertrain both offer the same components as the warranty offered permanently.
So how does this compare?
Well, Mazda will give you 3 years / unlimited kms on CERTAIN vehicles – but think of this – if the average person drives 25,000 km per year, then really you are only receiving a 3 year / 75,000 km warranty – and careful – as this is not offered on most vehicles.
Hyundai and Kia are the only auto manufacturers that come close to Mitsubishi, the rest fall quite behind. Hyundai and Kia offer 5 years/100 k bumper to bumper, roadside and powertrain – falling short by 5 years via the powertrain guarantee given by Mitsubishi.
Most domestic dealers offer 3 years, as does Volkswagen and Toyota – they both also offer only 3 years.
What does this mean to you? Let’s be realistic, auto makers are NOT in the business of losing money – how would they survive? So they stand behind their vehicles for as long as they feel they can without losing money. This means, to you, that the vehicle you may choose for looks and style may end up costing you thousands of dollars half-way into your car loan. Isn’t it worth a test drive at Mitsubishi? Every one of their vehicles has won leading edge awards in their class!
With Mitsubishi’s current promotion you won’t stress about repairs during your car loan, or for a very long time after, and we at Mitsubishi think that this is the meaning of customer service. We are standing behind our vehicles for twice as long as our competitors, three times as long as some – and that, according to us, speaks for itself.
