Mitsubishi Warranty Programs

Warranties are an important consideration when purchasing a new vehicle. Each manufacturer offers its own warranty program, making it hard to know which is best. Below, we’ll outline what makes the Mitsubishi warranty program so great and discuss all the different options available to you. Whether you’re buying a new or certified pre-owned Mitsubishi model, you can be confident that your purchase will be protected with a full-coverage warranty. 

 

 

What is a Mitsubishi Warranty?

A Mitsubishi warranty is a protection program that comes with all new vehicles. When you purchase a new vehicle from Mitsubishi, this protection plan will cover repair costs for certain elements of your vehicle for a specified amount of time. Anyone who has been in a car accident before, or who has suddenly found their car broken down on the side of the road, knows how frustrating unexpected vehicle repair costs can be. With a Mitsubishi warranty, you don’t have to worry about this as much.

In addition to covering all new vehicles, some warranties are available on pre-owned vehicles. This is typically the case if the vehicle is newer and the original warranty did not expire yet. If you want to know if a specific vehicle is still under warranty protection, the sales staff at your local dealership can provide you with more information. 

Different Types of Mitsubishi Warranties

There are several different types of warranties that your Mitsubishi vehicle purchase might come with. Knowing the different warranty programs available can help to ensure you know exactly what you’re getting when you purchase a new Mitsubishi vehicle. Below are the types of Mitsubishi warranties you’ll likely come across when shopping for your next car:

New Vehicle Limited Warranty

The most common type of warranty on new Mitsubishi vehicles is the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. In this warranty, your car is covered for practically everything found from bumper to bumper. It lasts for five years or up to 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. This plan also includes Mitsubishi’s roadside assistance service, which can help you out when you experience a flat tire, run out of fuel, or need a jump-start, among other services. The roadside assistance plan lasts for five years, regardless of the number of miles you drive.

Powertrain Limited Warranty

If you’d like a longer warranty, you should look at Mitsubishi’s limited powertrain warranty. This warranty covers select aspects of your vehicle, such as the transmission, engine, and other powertrain components. Unlike the new vehicle limited warranty, this warranty lasts for up to 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This makes it ideal for those car buyers who intend on keeping their new vehicle for a long time, especially when you consider that vehicles are more likely to break down as they age.

Onboard Technology

While the two warranties above cover most of the mechanical equipment within your vehicle, Mitsubishi offers a separate warranty for its in-car audio and navigation systems. Should this equipment fail to work properly, the warranty will cover the cost of repairs. This shorter warranty lasts for 3 years and up to 36,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Other Warranties

In addition to the major warranties mentioned above, Mitsubishi also offers a few other warranties. For example, there is a warranty on the restraint system which lasts for 5 years and 60,000 miles. There’s also the anti-corrosion warranty which lasts for 7 years and 100,000 miles. Finally, some Mitsubishi models come with a federal emissions warranty, the length of which can vary from model to model.

Certified Pre-Owned Warranty

While warranties typically come on new vehicles, some are available through the certified pre-owned program. With this program, you purchase a car that has gone through a rigorous inspection to ensure it’s in good shape. These cars have also been released within the past 5 years and have less than 60,000 miles. When you get one of these vehicles, you’ll get the certified pre-owned warranty, which provides the same warranty coverage available to new vehicles.

Is There a Warranty on Mitsubishi Hybrid Vehicles?

Mitsubishi offers a special warranty for its hybrid models. There is one hybrid model as of 2021 and that is the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid. This model comes with the same warranty protection as the other vehicles but also an additional warranty for the plug-in system and the lithium-ion battery. This separate warranty lasts for 10 years or 100,000 miles. In addition, Mitsubishi will cover the cost of defective batteries for the first two years of ownership and 37 percent of the cost for the following 12 months.

Do I Need a Mitsubishi Warranty?

While you can technically drive a vehicle without a warranty, it’s not recommended in this case. That’s because the Mitsubishi warranty comes at no additional charge to you so there’s no reason not to have it. The Mitsubishi warranty will protect you against large repair costs for your first years of ownership, which can make affording a new vehicle a lot easier. Warranties are so useful that some people choose to purchase an extended warranty once their original warranty expires, just so that they can have some additional cost protection while they own the car.

How to Get a New Mitsubishi with a Warranty

If you’re interested in the cost protection that Mitsubishi offers with its warranty programs, then all you need to do is purchase a vehicle that’s under warranty coverage. That includes all new vehicles and some select pre-owned ones. This means you have plenty of options to choose from so you can not only get the vehicle you want but also great warranty coverage.
