What in the World is: A Corrosion Warranty?
This is Part Three of the “What in the World is: Warranty” series which began with the Powertrain Warranty, continued with the Bumper-to-Bumper Warranty and now we’re culminating with the Corrosion Warranty that is now offered on most new vehicles.
As with the previous warranties, this one will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer so be sure to get the exact details from your Owner’s Manual or from your Manufacturer’s website.
Unlike other warranties offered, Rust/Corrosion Warranties offered by the manufacturers usually do not have a mileage limit, though almost all still have a time limit ranging from 5-10 Years in most cases. In order for your Corrosion (also known as “Rust Perforation”) Warranty to cover repairs to your vehicle the body panels usually have to be rusted through. They only cover complete perforation (which is extremely rare in modern days with the rust and corrosion proofing most vehicles are put through. Policies will generally not provide coverage for rust and corrosion from acid rain, hail damage or rock chips.
