Why You Need an Extended Warranty: Benefits of Cummins Coverage

Why You Need an Extended Warranty: Benefits of Cummins Coverage

In this day and age, having a reliable warranty coverage is a must. Simply put, when your engine experiences a loss of efficiency or a complete failure, having access to Cummins marine warranty repairs in San Diego can mean the difference between continued productivity and considerable business losses.

But is standard warranty enough? Do you need extended Cummins warranty, and why? While we're on that topic, what are the Cummins heavy duty warranty options, and what benefits that aren't included in a standard Cummins warranty do they include?

In this article, we'll talk about the Cummins standard warranty coverage specifics, as well as touch up on other types of warranties. These include emission warranties for Cummins engines and Cummins extended engine and generator warranties. Read on to learn more.

What does the extended Cummins warranty include?

A base Cummins warranty lasts 2 years (or for 250,000 miles, depending on what comes first), and protects the owner from failures that are caused by defects in Cummins materials and manufacture processes. It also provides towing services when necessary, and deals with aftertreatment.

The extended Cummins warranty can be bought at the time of the engine purchase, within a year of the expiration of the base warranty, or while the base warranty is still valid. It extends the period/mileage that the coverage lasts for, and introduces extra benefits.

Coverage benefits offered by the extended Cummins warranty include:

  • Repair of any breakdowns that occur due to defects in design, workmanship, or materials.
  • Immediate benefit of coverage.
  • Various different levels of coverage are available.
  • Base Cummins warranty coverage (before extended warranty coverage starts).

What does a Cummins emission warranty cover?

We live in a time when people are more aware than ever of the effects their technologies and daily practices have on the environment. Because of this, the US has specialized emission laws in place that govern the amounts of emissions specific engine types are legally allowed to release.

Cummins emission warranty guarantees that the engine in question is designed, equipped, and built in accordance with all US federal emission regulations applicable at the time of manufacture. It also warrants that the engine is free of defects in material or workmanship which would prevent it from conforming with these regulations.

The engine must meet these regulations during the following time periods:

  • Five years (or 100,000 miles, whichever happens first), as measured from the date of delivery of the engine to the first user.
  • The base engine warranty.

Why having a Cummins extended warranty is crucial?

Very few people possess enough disposable income to pay upfront for costly repairs or component replacements. Breakdowns are bad enough when they happen on passenger vehicles, but if you rely on the continued functioning of your engine for your work, a sudden failure can have a catastrophic impact on your future.

By investing in a top-notch warranty plan, you will be able to rely on professional assistance and total coverage should your engine experience a failure of some sort. This safety net is invaluable not only because it prevents productivity losses, but also because it gives you peace of mind you can't achieve otherwise.
