LOGAN TOWNSHIP, NJ — Mitsubishi Fuso announced on May 16 that it has become the first manufacturer of medium-duty cabover trucks to augment its bumper-to-bumper warranty (36 months, unlimited mileage) with a limited 5-year powertrain warranty, available beginning with its new 2006 models. The new limited 5-year powertrain warranty extends coverage on the most important components of Mitsubishi Fuso’s Class 6 and Class 7 FK and FM model medium-duty cabover trucks for a full 60 months or 250,000 miles from warranty start date. And it covers all crucial powertrain components, including the engine, Mitsubishi or Eaton manual transmission (however equipped), clutch housing and pressure plate assembly, and rear axle housing and internal parts. There are limitations or exclusions to its Class 6 and Class 7 bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties, which are not necessarily limited to, but include the Allison automatic transmission (covered by Allison’s manufacturer’s warranty); as well as the expected list of fluids and filters; normal wear items like tires, brake and clutch linings and wiper blades; custom truck bodies; plus failures due to abuse, accident, improper maintenance and the like. The full warranty details and limitations are available from Mitsubishi Fuso authorized dealers.
