Kenworth offers free Cummins extended warranty for new 2002 truck orders with 2002 EPA-certified ISX, ISM engines

| 9/18/2002

For a limited time, Kenworth is offering a Cummins extended warranty at no additional charge. To qualify, customers must purchase between Oct. 1, 2002, and Jan. 31, 2003, a Kenworth heavy-duty truck powered by either a Cummins ISX or ISM 2002 EPA-certified engine. The additional coverage is available in the United States and Canada for Kenworth's T600, T800, W900, T2000 and C500 models.

Buyers of new Kenworth on-highway vehicles will receive a 3-year, 300,000-mile extended warranty at no charge under the Cummins protection plan for 2002 EPA-certified ISX and ISM engines. That's above the current base coverage of 2 years, 250,000 miles. The extended coverage offers protection from fan hub to flywheel, including all cooled EGR subsystem components and variable geometry turbocharger. The Cummins base warranty provides Kenworth new truck buyers with 5-year, 500,000-mile standard coverage for major engine components, including all major castings and forgings.

In addition, Kenworth's vocational customers will benefit from Cummins' free, 5-year, 150,000-mile extended warranty on new Kenworth vehicles built between Oct. 1, 2002, and Jan. 31, 2003, with 2002 EPA-certified ISX and ISM engines.

Kenworth customers can save from $750 to $1,400 on Cummins' free extended-warranty coverage, depending upon horsepower and application. Optional protection plans with additional coverages are also available from Cummins.
