Why Dealership Lifetime Warranties Are Too Good to Be True
You may think a dealer offering a “lifetime warranty” is the best way to ensure your Toyota is covered for the road ahead. But the truth is, a dealership’s lifetime warranty policy may not give you the protection you need. Read on to learn more about this kind of policy’s drawbacks and how the Savannah Toyota team can help you get much better coverage at no additional cost.
Drawbacks of Standard Dealership Lifetime Warranties
- While a dealership’s free lifetime engine and powertrain warranties may seem attractive, they fail to cover significant vehicle components like seals and gaskets. These policies also come with unrealistic expectations for service requirements, voiding coverage if you don’t stick to the excessive service schedule stipulated in the policy.
- The “lifetime” term can be deceptive as it often refers to the vehicle’s lifetime as determined by the manufacturer, not the duration that you own the vehicle. Some additional restrictions include mileage limits or specific maintenance requirements that could void the warranty. Conversely, our Savannah 7 warranty offers more comprehensive coverage that goes beyond manufacturing defects, including wear and tear or unexpected breakdowns.
- Any commercial use of your vehicle will also void the warranty coverage, adding yet another restriction.
