What is covered?
Two separate warranties apply to the tires on your new vehicle.
- The New Vehicle Limited Warranty covers tire defects in factory-supplied materials or workmanship until the earlier of: (i) expiration of the Basic Coverage period of 48 months or 80,000 km (whichever occurs first); or (ii) until the tire requires normal replacement, for 100% of labour costs and on a pro rata adjustment basis for parts (see the Reimbursement Schedule above).
- Defective tires will be replaced on a pro rata adjustment basis according to the preceding kilometre-based Reimbursement Schedule.
- The tire manufacturer also provides you with a separate tire warranty that may extend beyond the Basic Coverage terms or period. You will find the manufacturer’s tire warranty with the owner literature supplied with your new vehicle.
What is not covered?
Normal wear and/or worn-out tires are not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Other examples of items not covered are:
- Road hazard damage including cuts, snags, bruises, bulges and impact breaks (due to potholes and curbs or other road hazards)
- Damage caused by a puncture or tire repair
- Damage from improper inflation or alignment, tire chains, racing, spinning (e.g. when stuck in snow or mud), and improper mounting or dismounting
- Tire vibration or ride harshness is not covered beyond 12 months or 20,000 km (whichever occurs first) unless caused by a defect in factory supplied materials or workmanship
- Tires replaced other than pursuant to the New Vehicle Limited Warranty Tire Warranty are not eligible for the balance of the Tire Warranty, however they may carry their own warranty (see your dealer or the tire manufacturer for more information).
