Miami-based Ryder System has introduced an extended powertrain warranty package called Road Ready Plus for its Road-Ready pre-owned vehicles. According to Ryder, Road Ready Plus provides powertrain coverage up to 12 months or 100,000 miles, covering all manufacturers, as well as the injectors, air compressors, turbochargers, transmission and rear axles, among other items detailed in the warranty.

“The customer [gets] peace-of-mind with an extended power train warranty,” said Tom Havens, vp-vehicle sales for Ryder. He added that the company’s used vehicle warranty plan includes instant payment of claims and access to more than 2,000 repair facilities, while allowing customers to choose from a variety of warranty packages for heavy, medium and light-duty vehicles.

Road Ready used vehicles are single-owner trucks“equipped with quality components and part configurations that have been road-tested and performance-monitored within Ryder's fleet of more than 162,000 vehicles.” Sold at 50 company-owned retail outlets nationwide, they come with complete maintenance records and a base 10,000-mile or 30-day power train warranty.
