Standard Cummins Warranty: Everything You Need to Know

Standard Cummins Warranty: Everything You Need to Know

A Cummins warranty coverage is the best and most trusted type of diesel engine warranty today. Whether you're using a standard diesel engine that came with your passenger car, or you're a career trucker who relies on a powerhouse diesel engine for daily work, having at least a standard Cummins warranty is advised.

In this article, we'll explain why Cummins warranties are the best, and talk about the incredible benefits of having a Cummins warranty. We'll also touch on the specifics of Cummins heavy duty warranty, and what isn't part of a Cummins warranty.

Read on to learn more about how these types of warranties can greatly improve the value you get out of your diesel engine.

What is Cummins standard warranty?

The Cummins standard warranty is designed to cover the normal issues and defects an engine may experience during the first couple of years of its lifetime. This warranty lasts for 250,000 miles, or 2 years, whichever occurs first.

A standard Cummins warranty covers:

  • 100% parts and labor on warrantable failures (these include failures that happen as a result of faults in Cummins materials and factory workmanship).
  • Travel or towing in cases where an engine becomes disabled due to a warrantable failure.
  • Aftertreatment is also included.

This type of warranty is usually enough to cover most consumer-level uses of diesel engines.

However, if you're a professional or otherwise a heavy duty user, you may want to consider more advanced warranty packages. Keep reading to learn about extended Cummins warranties.

What does Cummins extended warranty include?

The Extended Warranty Program introduces extra peace of mind by extending the standard warranty and introducing additional coverage. It's bought at the time of generator purchase before the base warranty expires, or within one year of the expiration of the base warranty.

Extended Cummins warranty includes:

  • Repair of any failures that stem from defects in material, workmanship, or design.
  • Standard base Cummins warranty coverage (before extended warranty coverage begins).
  • Multiple coverage levels available.
  • Instantaneous benefit of coverage.

Things not included in your extended Cummins warranty coverage include:

  • Scheduled maintenance.
  • Repair of breakdowns that happen due to customer abuse, misuse, or neglect.
  • Product failures resulting from incorrect installation, application, maintenance, or storage.

What is Cummins ReCon engine warranty?

Although Cummins engines are extremely durable, no machine that contains mechanical part is immune to wear and tear in the long run. Eventually, every engine will need to have some of its major components replaced.

A reconditioned Cummins engine (ReCon) is an engine that has been utterly remanufactured and outfitted with latest upgrades in design and materials. This assures utmost reliability and excellent performance.

Cummins ReCon engine warranty covers all failures that occur during normal use and service, and are caused by defects in Cummins factory workmanship and materials. The coverage typically extends for two years, or 2000 hours, whichever happens first.

Where in San Diego can you buy an engine with dependable Cummins warranty coverage?

Most people aren't able to readily pay large sums for expensive repairs that may occur during the use of their vehicle. Warranties, therefore, are a much needed safety net that ensures you won't get stranded in the middle of nowhere, and that your work won't suffer considerable setbacks because of an engine failure.

As a company that has more than 40 years of diesel engine maintenance, replacement, and repair, PCE fully understands the need for a reliable warranty that can solve unexpected failures without unnecessary hassle.
