HIGH POINT, N.C. — Thomas Built Buses announced on Wednesday that it will extend its standard Saf-T-Liner C2 base warranty and the standard body and chassis paint coverage for all models.

The Saf-T-Liner C2 base warranty will provide three-year or 50,000-mile coverage, up from the previous one-year warranty, for units built on or after Oct. 1, 2014. The warranty will cover the chassis and many other components, including electrical and manual controls, safety equipment, assemblies and more. Normal wear items are excluded.

Also, Thomas Built’s standard body and chassis paint warranty will be extended from three years to five years. That applies to all models built on or after Oct. 1.

“We stand behind our quality and durability, and we are pleased to lengthen our C2 base warranty and our body and chassis paint coverage to help our customers lower their total cost of ownership even more,” said Kelley Platt, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses. “We believe that everyone who purchases a new bus from Thomas Built is entitled to extensive warranty protection, as well as peace of mind.”

For complete information about Thomas Built’s warranties, customers can consult their local dealer.

    I have never liked any kind of a bus built by Thomas. I would much rather have to drive an old Wayne or Carpenter than a Thomas any day.It is unfortunate that other manufacturers have gone out of business but Thomas is still hanging around. As for the IC bus, they should have stayed as Am Trans.
