The sizable service bays at the Cookeville Landmark locations can accommodate six tractors comfortably — the service building was added to the original building when the dealer moved from its former location several years ago.

Peterbilt announced a new warranty option for customers of its Red Oval Certified Pre-Owned used truck program. The new warranty option provides customers the ability to extend Peterbilt’s factory-backed comprehensive used warranty to two-years/250,000 miles. This warranty is offered and administered through Peterbilt’s more than 370 dealers and Paccar Financial Used Truck Centers. The company currently provides a standard one-year/125,000-mile Paccar Engine Pre-Owned Warranty for the MX engine and aftertreatment system with the purchase of a Peterbilt Red Oval Certified vehicle. Red Oval Certified vehicles pass a comprehensive 150-point factory certified inspection performed by factory-trained service technicians. All Red Oval certified trucks are reconditioned and serviced, including DPF cleaning and an oil and filter change. All Peterbilt Red Oval certified vehicles come with a 90-day buyer assurance plan covering major chassis components and a DOT-required annual inspection. Red Oval certified inventory is available via this link.

Kenworth’s pre-owned warranty expansion
Kenworth announced a new two-year, 250,000-mile factory-backed Pre-Owned Warranty option for Paccar engines available through the Kenworth Certified Pre-Owned Program. Like the Peterbilt extension, this gives customers the opportunity to add extended coverage on top of the standard one-year, 125,000-mile warranty for Certified Pre-Owned trucks. For KWs powered by Paccar engines, the one- and two-year warranty options cover 105 engine and aftertreatment components. Kenworth also offers a 90-day buyer assurance vehicle warranty that provides protection on 135 components, ranging from the HVAC system to select cab and sleeper components. In order to qualify for the Certified Pre-Owned Program, Kenworth trucks must be four (model) years in age or less, have mileage under 450,000, and pass a 150-point inspection completed by Kenworth certified technicians. Extended coverage options are also available for trucks five years old with 550,000 miles or fewer.
