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.
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.
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.
Mitsubishi has been leading the auto industry with their warranty coverage for quite some time. Having a warranty on one’s vehicle is important, it helps to save some cash when a repair or replacement part is needed. However, warranties always feel like they’re designed to last up until a component’s breaking point. With Mitsubishi Motors, warranties last a lot longer and cover a whole lot of car parts.

New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Most basic limited warranties offered by manufacturers cover a car for three years or 36,000 miles, but Mitsubishi extends their basic limited warranty for five years or 60,000 miles.
The basic warranty covers vehicle parts supplied by Mitsubishi Motors North America, excluding the batteries and the restraint system. If the battery needs to be replaced within two years of ownership, it can be replaced for free. If the battery needs to be replaced between two and three years of ownership, Mitsubishi will replace the battery at half price.
