POLL: How long do you think the 10 year Warranty will last?

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by jtees4, Aug 7, 2006.

  1. I think you raise a good point in suggesting that maybe it depends on
    who is issuing the warranty and what their reputation was before that
    point. I'm biased against Fords because of some bad experiences, so
    even with their new-and-improved warranties and pricing, they're not
    really on my radar because of that. Perhaps with better pricing and an
    even better warranty... nah.

  2. Regarding whether I'd dismiss a Toyota simply because its warranty is
    below industry average, absolutely. On the off chance that the Toyota
    transmission falls out of the vehicle in 5.5 years, is the Toyota name
    going to fix it? No, and there is no warranty to remedy the situation.
    On the slightly better chance that the Mitsubishi transmission fails
    around 9.5 years, will the Mitsubishi name fix it? No, but the 10-year
    warranty will.

    I understand how you look at it, Matt, but I'd prefer to have a
    warranty contract in place for car malfunctions, rather than hoping the
    local high-quality car dealer will "goodwill" me a new transmission. I
    guess that my faith in quality doesn't extend beyond the length of the

    One of the main reasons we bought a new Santa Fe was the warranty. I
    figure if Ford, GM and Chrysler. Toyota and Honda don't have enough
    faith in their product to warrant it the same as Hyundai, why should I
    have any faith in it.

    Toyota and Honda have faith in their own products. Their prices are higher
    and their warranties shorter because they can get away with it. They can get
    away with it because demand for their cars is high. You just helped the
    demand go down a little, so good for you!
