Not many know that the founder of Lincoln was also the founder of Cadillac as well. In 1917, Henry Leland, the founder of the automobile company Cadillac, left because the majority of shareholders were against his plan to put his people to work. Expenses were too high, particularly with the U.S. entering World War I.
Yet Leland saw an opportunity with the American arms industry, so in 1917 Leland founded the Lincoln Motor Co., producing much needed aircraft engines for the military. The U.S. government broke the contract with Leland in 1921 and gave him the chance to move the segment of his business into car production. After a year passed, Ford purchased Lincoln and the company fitted the car with the no recognized Greyhound emblem.
The premiere vehicle saw the light of day in 1954 and was intended as a well-equipped sedan as counterpart to the Cadillac. From the very beginning, the designers put every effort to provide a technical, yet complex and well-equipped vehicle for the average American.
Has Your Lincoln Auto Warranty Expired or is it About to Expire?
Lincoln parts and labor are covered mainly by 1 year Wear Item Limited Warranty. However, the coverage for any parts that are purchased by Lincoln dealers and installed by one will include the replacement and labor as well. Every Lincoln is fully backed by a 4-year/50,000 mile replacement warranty.
Lincoln also has a Seat Belt Lifetime Warranty, where they will repair any seatbelt or any component that fails to work properly and they do this for as long as you have the car.
The Powertrain Limited Warranty is the same as the engine, transmission, water pump, drive train, transfer unit 4x4, turbo and super charger, seals and gaskets. This warranty runs 6 years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first. If you are planning on keeping the vehicle for any time longer than your warranty covers for, however, you may want to think about buying an extended auto warranty.
You can take your vehicle to any dealer for repairs concerning your warranty. All dealers should be happy to take on these services. If you should have any questions regarding the warranty, contact your local office for answers. Lincoln also gives warranties on your vehicle regardless of the amount of ownership changes, so be sure to ask about the current warranty when purchasing a previously owned Lincoln vehicle.
Why Extend Your Lincoln Auto Warranty?
One year goes by fast, and when Lincoln’s 1 year Wear Limited Warranty is up, the full cost of repairs reverts to you, the owner. As cars continue to become more complex, repair costs rise, and a final total at the repair shop can often result in sticker shock at the full price of parts and labor. While the manufacturer’s warranty is often gone for good, there are other options to keep warranty coverage in place.
A vehicle protection contract (formerly known as an extended auto warranty) is an extension of an auto warranty that takes effect only after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. Protection contracts extend coverage after the original expires and helps cover components that the lingering powertrain warranty does not. Often times, vehicle protection contracts also offer coverage on parts that may not have been included previously, such as electrical components and air conditioning. With a vehicle protection contract, you pay a deductible, and the contract provider takes care of the rest.
A vehicle protection contract can save you a lot on inevitable repairs, especially when that protection contract is with Vehicle Protection Headquarters.
