The cost of parts and services plays a significant role in the total cost of ownership. Obviously, the more you spend on parts and services throughout the year, the higher your total cost of ownership. Purchasing cheaper parts or skimping on maintenance and necessary service visits might lower your initial cost, but in the end you’ll pay much more when parts start to fail.
So how can you lower your total cost of ownership? By choosing a quality, durable product backed by a strong warranty.
Thomas Built Buses traditionally has offered some of the most robust warranties in the industry. And now it’s made two of those warranties even stronger, which means more savings for you. Thomas Built Buses has just lengthened the coverage period for both the company’s standard Saf-T-Liner® C2 base warranty and the standard body and chassis paint coverage for all models.
The Saf-T-Liner C2 base warranty will now provide three-year or 50,000 mile coverage as compared to the previous one-year warranty, starting with units built on or after October 1, 2014. The enhanced warranty will cover the chassis, as well as many other components including electrical and manual controls, safety equipment, assemblies and more. Normal wear items are excluded.
The standard body and chassis paint warranty, which covers all models built on or after October 1, 2014, will be extended from three years to five years.
Thomas Built Buses are built for durability, and with this new warranty extension, owners can save even more on parts and services for years to come.
