Isuzu Commercial Truck of America is now offering a new limited powertrain warranty on used Class 3-5 trucks, which includes roadside assistance and free oil change.

With three options available – 3-months/10,000 mi.; 6-month/20,000 mi.; or 12 month/30,000 mi. – the warranty is for 2002 and newer vehicles and is an enhancement of its Gold Star Warranty Program for Isuzu-built N-Series and Chevrolet/GMC W-Series used vehicles.

According to Shaun Skinner, executive vp & gm, the offer is being made because Isuzu has found that the average trade-in cycle of its Class 3-5 trucks was at about 6 ½ years with many of the vehicles having fewer than 170,000 mi. on their diesel engines and less than 100,000 on the gas versions.

“We consider this to be low mileage, since our diesel models have an engine life of 310,000 mi. and our gas trucks have an engine design life of 200,000 mi.,” Skinner said. “We determined with our dealers that, after a comprehensive inspection, these vehicles would be a terrific value to customers wanting a less expensive but reliable low cab forward vehicle.”
