My neighbor was goofin on me for buying a Chevy.

"Don't you know Dodge has a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty? You should have bought a Dodge!"

What good is a warranty if the company goes bankrupt?

Is Hyundai going bankrupt? Hadn't heard that.

Airstream didn't end the lifetime warranty, the Feds did.

It changed when the Airstream serial numbers went to the 17 digits.

The feds said, you cannot have a lifetime warranty on a portion of the trailer. It must be all, or nothing.

Obviously, Airstream chose the limited period of time warranty, with a few exclusions.

That was Ok with the Feds.

Airstream spent more on Pearl Mains trailer, for warranty work, than she originally paid for the trailer.

Airstream spent over $5,000.00 for warranty repairs with us.

Yes, the factory was very aware of Pearl, as well as Larry Huttle.

Pearl was the reason a lock was put on the door that went to the executive offices.

But Pearl was a true blue "Wally" follower.

Andy,

The feds must have changed their opinion as Chrysler is now offering a "lifetime" warranty on the power train only for most vehicles.

Bill, I think the difference is it's the "lifetime of the power train"...not the "lifetime of the owner" like Airstream's was. We actually have a member of the DenCO Unit that is the original owner of his '63 Overlander!
