Many car shoppers in and around the Palm Beach County and Palm Beach Gardens areas want the latest in technology and amenities with their new Toyota vehicle. But it’s also just as important to make sure they have the best warranty coverage possible to ensure their vehicle is covered and lasts for years to come. This is why West Palm Beach drivers are drawn to the idea of a free lifetime engine or powertrain warranty. This may sound good on paper, but these warranties are worthless, even failing to cover significant vehicle components like the seals and gaskets. Gets more details about the issues with these warranties and get one-on-one assistance with your vehicle search from Earl Stewart Toyota of North Palm Beach near Jupiter.

What’s the Problem With These Warranties?

While free lifetime engine and powertrain warranties from a dealership might sound perfect, they come with several problems, such as:

  • Inadequate Coverage – If an engine or powertrain fails under normal use, it’s almost certain that the parts that fail are either the seals or gaskets. The Toyota lifetime powertrain warranty and engine warranty from most Lake Park dealers do not cover these important parts, which means the warranty has essentially eliminated the most common reasons people would ever need to repair their engine or powertrain.
  • Unrealistic Maintenance Requirements – Most of these warranties require you to get maintenance on a schedule that goes beyond what the manufacturer recommends and requires you to have your maintenance performed at the dealer that sold you the car.
  • Vehicle Limitations – You won’t be able to use your car for commercial use, trailer towing, and other purposes.
