Kenworth care package aims to safeguard customers
KIRKLAND, Wash. — The new Kenworth PremierCare Freedom Package provides Kenworth Class 8 on-highway truck owners with a combined preventive maintenance and extended warranty program.
It is the first time Kenworth has combined an extended basic vehicle warranty with a two-to five-year preventive maintenance program, according to Dick Von Lehman, Kenworth PremierCare national sales manager for service. The Freedom Package can be purchased with the Kenworth truck and wrapped into a finance package.
“The Kenworth PremierCare Freedom Package is an excellent peace of mind program for customers operating Kenworth T660, T800, W900 and T2000 models,” said Von Lehman. “There are some terrific savings for customers compared to purchasing an unbundled extended warranty package with a preventive maintenance program.
“The Freedom Package provides added vehicle protection plus all proper maintenance via B-level service (lube, oil/filter and 121-point safety inspection) and C-level service (comprehensive service with 147-point inspection) fulfilling the annual DOT, the quarterly California and most other state inspections,” said Von Lehman. “If you do some calculations, the program really pencils out. Cost per mile for maintenance can be as low as 4.2 cents per mile based on a five-year package.”
Von Lehman said that the program allows customers to schedule vehicle maintenance at any Kenworth dealership in the US and Canada, plus it includes automatic enrollment in Kenworth’s PremierCare Roadside Assistance Program and Bridgestone’s tire discount program (US only).
“This is a great package which helps to reduce downtime while containing maintenance expenses,” said Von Lehman. “What’s more, with documented maintenance by Kenworth at the proper intervals, it sets the stage for customers to receive maximum resale value for their Kenworth trucks.”
