MORE COMES STANDARD WITH A CAT WARRANTY

When you buy Cat parts for your on-highway truck engine, they come with an unlimited-mileage 12-month warranty. Here’s what sets that coverage apart:

IT COVERS REPAIRS AT ANY AUTHORIZED CAT DEALER.
If you’re on the road, far from home, don’t worry about taking your truck back to the original selling or servicing dealer for repairs. Just find the closest authorized Cat dealer and get it fixed fast.

IT COVERS DEFECTIVE PARTS EVEN IF THEY WEREN'T INSTALLED BY A CAT DEALER.
As long as installation workmanship didn’t cause the covered part failure, we’ll pay for replacement Cat parts and installation labor at any authorized Cat dealer, no matter who performed the repair.

IT INCLUDES ENGINE OIL, COOLANT AND FILTER REPLACEMENT.
If any of these expensive items are contaminated during the failure of a covered component, we’ll replace them at no cost to you.

IT COVERS RESULTANT DAMAGE, TOO.
If a defect of a covered component causes damage to other Cat engine components, we cover the cost of those repairs as well.

over the counter option.
If returning your on-highway truck engine to an authorized Cat dealer for a repair of a defective part doesn’t fit your schedule or meet your needs, you can simply exchange the defective part at any authorized Cat dealer. Please note that parts that have sustained resultant damage, labor and fluids are not reimbursed over the counter.

 


 

KNOW YOUR OPTIONS

Because Cat on-highway truck engines run and run and run, it’s smart to extend your protection beyond the standard 12 months. Extended Service Coverage (ESC) gives you that option. It covers the cost of parts, labor on any covered defective part and any resultant damage to other Cat parts. It’s transferable at no additional cost, too, so having it may increase your resale value.

Here's a quick look at your ESC options — all provide up to four years of parts and labor coverage with no mileage or hour limits:

  • Precious metals kit ESC
  • Component Plus ESC
  • Overhaul Protection for Trucks (OPT)

Precious metals kit ESC and Component Plus ESC protect overhaul kits or parts you buy over the counter or through the shop. Choose 24-, 36- or 48-month coverage with $0 deductible and no transfer fees.

 

Overhaul Protection for Trucks (OPT) is another option available to protect your Cat on-highway truck engine. This coverage is only available for overhauls and rebuilds performed at an authorized Cat dealer. Contact your dealer for more information.

 


 

CONTACT YOUR CAT DEALER

Don’t let unexpected repair bills and rising parts and labor costs eat away at your profits. Choose engine parts backed by industry-leading standards and extended coverage so you can take to the road with peace of mind. See your authorized Cat dealer to learn more about ESC options and start the enrollment process.
