Car Warranties are the Gifts that Keep on Giving

November 17th, 2017 by


When looking for a new car, consumers look at everything. All the tech features, the comfort of the interior, how the vehicle looks, how safe it is. What many tend to overlook is the car warranty. After all, every car warranty is the same, right? Wrong, bucko. Mitsubishi and Kia Motors, two brands available at Miami Lakes Automall, go above and beyond with their automobile warranties, giving drivers peace of mind for years to come.

Basic Warranty

The limited basic warranty that comes with many new vehicles covers the most basic car components, mostly aesthetics such as door handles, exterior mirrors, etc. Most auto brands have a limited basic warranty that lasts for 3 years or 36,000 miles, whichever one comes first. Mitsubishi Motors and Kia Motors up those numbers to 5-years/60,000 miles.

Powertrain Warranty

Get ready to see a pattern, because the powertrain warranty offered by most auto brands lasts for 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever one happens first. However, Mitsubishi and Kia go a little further, extending the powertrain warranty to 10 years and 100,000 miles, respectively. The powertrain warranty protects, as it states, the powertrain, or everything having to do with the engine, the transmission, and many other parts that keep an automobile running for a long time.

Other Types of Coverage

Although not usually talked about, many vehicles come with an anti-corrosion or anti-perforation warranty that protects the vehicle from rust, corroding parts, and the like. Most will last for only five years, but Mitsubishi Motors sets the bar high with a 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion warranty. Mitsubishi also offers roadside assistance for five years or an unlimited amount of miles; Kia Motors offers the same protection for five years and 60,000 miles.

Smart Gifts

Why are we talking about the warranties offered by Mitsubishi Motors and Kia Motors? Think about it. The holidays are closing in, some of our readers out there have kids growing up and going to college, and others are just tired of driving around an old clunker. When it comes to buying or leasing a vehicle, it’s a large investment to undertake, and it’s hard to really have any guarantee that a new or used car will last.

That’s where car warranties come in. Most vehicles are nearly for about five years and then they start to depreciate a lot quicker. However, most automobile brands only want to protect the look of the car for three years, and the powertrain for only five. Mitsubishi and Kia doesn’t agree with that philosophy, and want their consumers to enjoy their vehicles for as long as they can.

* With holiday spirit in the air, it’s the perfect time to get a new vehicle with a longer-lasting warranty for plenty of coverage for years to come. Feeling that holiday cheer? Check out the 2018 Mitsubishi models and 2018 Kia models at Miami Lakes Automall today. *
