Meritor announced the launch of the Meritor Aftermarket Wheel End Extended Warranty. The program offers increased coverage to fleets that purchase and install Meritor wheel-end products together, according to the company.
“The advantages of Meritor’s unique portfolio of wheel-end products become even stronger when products are installed together,” said Pete Freeman, product manager. “The Meritor Wheel End Extended Warranty takes wheel-end warranty coverage to a new level of protection and value.”
Two extended-coverage options are 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. 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, the company added.
Customers can go to MeritorPartsWarranty.com to register products purchased as part of an extended warranty package. When registering, customers are required to provide vehicle and part number identification along with the installation date of the associated parts.
Registration creates a unique confirmation code that can be used to instantly confirm extended coverage if future warranty assistance is required. The site also serves as a portal to register the Doctor Preload wheel-end adjustment tool for warranty coverage.
