Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. has announced the enhancement of its Gold Star Warranty Program for Isuzu-built N-Series and Chevrolet/GMC W-Series class 3-5 used trucks.

The limited powertrain warranty coverage is available on inspected and qualified 2002 and newer vehicles at more than 225 nationwide Isuzu commercial truck dealers. Diesel vehicles in this program offer less than 170,000 miles and gas vehicles have less than 100,000 miles.

Shaun Skinner, executive vice president and general manager stated that "in response to requests from dealers and customers, we researched our vehicle usage and found that the average Isuzu class 3-5 truck was traded-in at about six and a half years, with many of these vehicles having less than 170,000 miles for diesel and under 100,000 miles for gas. We consider this to be low mileage, since our diesel models have an engine B-10 life of 310,000 miles and our gas trucks have an engine design life of 200,000 miles. 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."

Offered at a competitive price, the limited powertrain warranty coverage options are three months/10,000 miles, six months/20,000 miles or 12 months/30,000 miles. In addition, once the dealer registers the vehicle with Isuzu, it will include roadside assistance, and customers are provided with a coupon for a free oil change at participating dealers.
