FLORENCE, Ky. ̶ Meritor announced the launch of its extended aftermarket wheel-end warranty today.
The program offers increased coverage to fleets that purchase and install Meritor wheel-end products together, the company said.
“The advantages of Meritor’s unique portfolio of wheel-end products become even stronger when products are installed together,” said Pete Freeman, product manager, aftermarket for Meritor. “The Meritor Wheel End Extended Warranty takes wheel-end warranty coverage to a new level of protection and value.”
According to Meritor, there are two extended-coverage options available. The first option offers coverage for three years or 300,000 miles when the customer purchases and installs Meritor hubcaps and Premium Meritor Wheel Seals as well as Temper-Loc spindle nuts. For even greater coverage, customers receive a 5-year, unlimited-mile warranty when purchasing and installing the same three wheel-end products along with Meritor PlatinumShield II-coated brake shoes.
