Great news - maybe JD, Kubota, and New Holland will follow suit since they all claim great reliability. Nice to know a company has faith in its product!

Warranties can be very expensive, NOT because of product failure, but more tothefact tha are a lot of STUPID OWNERS out there and shicksters.
Dodge had the 3500 C+C and told people yup! you can put a 2-3 yard dump body on it andnot VOID the Warranty. Now the STUPID people step in, they put a 2-3 yard dump body on it, build the sides up and start hauling wet dirt, boulders etc and vastly exceed the GVWR and then when the suspensions break, and axel bearings are shot, they come in and demand Warranty Replacement.
Dodge had a 7 year 70,0000 Power Train Warranty that covered ALl INTERNAL PARTS of the engine, tranny, transfer case and drive shaft and axels. Now the KEY word was INTERNAL, we have been fighting with customers for years and the expense to bringvehicles in and then the BAD PR you get when you try to explain to a customer that the Radiator is NOT part of the Power Train or the Brake pads, or the Rotors etc etc.
Products can be reliable and Warranties will not make any difference to the reliability. Warranties if they are short, due however eliminate many many customer relation problems. Long Warranties will create some bad feelings.
JD offers an Extended Service contract and on my 4115, a 3 yr, 3000 hr extended warranty was going to be $1150. So JD could bury it in the price or I could pay for it and either way get the same results. Service Contracts have their coverages spelled out in pretty good detail and that saves alot of grief. We do have customers whoBuy Third Party Service Contracts where the Moon was promised but when it is time to pay for the work, the third Party denies coverage, Guess who gets to blame for that as ell? Yup! the dealer.... Not the third Party, but the Dealer. The dealer is usually DEMANDED by te customer to absorb the expense because their Third Party Service Contract said it was covered.
There are some Third Party Vendors who are calling OUR Customers and claiming they are representing Chrysler Corp, they are nNOT and it is the EWEST of Scams. The Internet has the Scams and so doesn'T real Life.
I suggest the Service Contract from the Proper manufacturer.

KIA is a good example. You can warranty JUNK for 20 year sif you want but te resale value is still ZERO after you buy it, because every SMART person knows it is JUNK. They get ONE good TEST Result and they ride it to the hilt.
Go to a manufacturer's Dealership on any given day and ask to tour their Service Area and then look t what is in there for Service, not oil Changes and Preps, but REAL service. It is usually the cheap brands and older vehicles. The manugfacturing Process is far better than it ever was, they can catch errors with in a few vehicles on te assembly line now versus, whoops! 250,000 have been shipped and there is a problem with the drive shaft. That is a real rarity now.... Sure there are the Gas Cap recalls and the other SAFETY Rcalls, but Performance Related recalls are almost nil. Except for the Ford 6.0L Diesel....... smile... Gotta get a Cumins

Yup! you are right.
Warranties are good for the first one or two years, preferrably two years, that way a consumerhas had the time to getout and work it and any adjustments, oversites etc are taken care of by the Warranty. After that, Service contract it.
Another BIG Complaint is RUST. Mopar/Jeep has a 5 year 60,000 mile RUST THRU WARRANTY. The warranty as any body who maes something will tell you is against MANUFACTURER DEFECTS and WORKMANSHIP, not what Salt can do to metal or other chemicals or rocks bouncing off the undercarriage. Yet epople beleive that if they see Rust, it HAS to be covered by warranty. Does anyone know if there is a RUST Proof Metal that is cheap enough to make cars out of? Galveneel or Galvanized metal will still rust just takes longer. Salt will raise Hell with Shiny Rims and NO WARRANTY is going to cover that. Yet they come in almost daily trying to collect on a warranty that was meant to warranty the workmanship of the product not the results when dipped in acid.

I don't think Kioti is backing their tractors due to the fact they are not as good as some. I talked with a Kioti dealer AL a few years back, not for a purchase and he claimed he had never had one of the DK's back and he sold about 40 per year. Kioti has control of all their parts, except the Perkins in the larger tractors. They are probably trying to establish themselves over the other new competition like Montana.

Dodge needs the rust and paint warranty. Look back at the early 90's cars especially the white and then at the neons. paint was all ways coming of those.

That was the Paint Process that they had changed to, it wasn't a metal or rust problem. That was not just with Chrysler Products, GM and Ford had the same problem.
The basis of what I was saying wasn't about how paint sticks to a electro treated metal but how people translate their warranty. Most do NOT think they only DEMAND. Dodge paid for the repainting of many of those vehicles if they had problems within the specified time and many got painted beyond the specified time.
I was merely pointing out that what a warranty actually covers and what people (who never read their warranty manuals) insist that the warranty covers is usually quite different.

I know what you meant. I was just shooting off. I deal with warranty from many different companies. And hundreds of irate customers that don't believe that they did any thing wrong. It is all ways this piece of junk broke, all by it self I did not do any thing. When they should be saying I did not follow the guidlines and I broke it.
