Why You Want The Warranty

Lifetime Limited Powertrain Warranty

When you’re searching for a vehicle that's safe and reliable for you and your family, wanting a warranty is a no-brainer. But it can be hard to discern which one is right for you. At Collierville Auto, we thoroughly inspect every vehicle. A car doesn't make it onto our lot until we've fixed any and every issue we found during this initial inspection. Every qualified vehicle at Collierville Auto Center comes with our Lifetime Limited Powertrain Warranty - this coverage is provided to you at no cost and is good for as long as you own the car. The Lifetime Limited Powertrain Warranty covers damage to all the necessary key components of your car, including the engine, transmission, all-wheel drive case/assembly and the drivetrain assembly, and even a towing allowance. Having this extra coverage could save you significant repair costs over the lifetime of your vehicle!

You’ve found the perfect certified pre-owned vehicle. You have obtained the Carfax, and now you have the added peace of mind of a Lifetime Limited Powertrain Warranty. But, what if you want a little extra? We offer a variety of extended service contracts, designed to fit your needs and your budget!

The following extended service contracts are also available for an added cost when you purchase your vehicle here at Collierville Auto Center.
  • Powertrain Plus
  • Standard
  • Premium
  • Elite Plus

When purchasing your vehicle from Collierville Auto, we will discuss these coverage options and help you make the best decision for your needs and your budget. Regardless of which option you choose, we also provide the following amenities: seals and gaskets, towing, rental, trip interruption, roadside service, lockout service and tire coverage. Even if you don't live in the Memphis area, you can still take advantage of these great offers - we have approved repair facilities all over the country!

Still not convinced? Consider these points:
  1. Warranties and extended service contracts can protect your vehicle long after the factory warranty ends. According to CNBC, the average length of ownership for a new vehicle has increased from 4.3 years to 6.5 years. Most factory warranties only cover up to between 35,000 or 50,000 miles or an average of a 36-month ownership.
  2. Your car warranty can pay for itself after one major repair! Whether you are buying a standard or luxury brand vehicle, car maintenance and repair can be costly. Thinking ahead about these costs and opting for a warranty instead can save you money over several years of ownership.
  3. Extended service contracts, like the ones you’ll find at Collierville Auto Center, can cover extra features and amenities - we have options for just about everything, even simple wear and tear!
  4. It can increase the resale value of your car. An extended warranty offers peace of mind, and if the warranty is not expired, it is possible it can be transferred to the new owner. Be sure to ask your dealer when you are purchasing your car.
