ZF Of NA Introduces Extended Service Plan For Marine Transmissions

One of the first extended service programs for marine transmissions has been introduced by ZF of North America, Inc., Lincolnshire, 111.

ZF, a worldwide manufacturer of major power train components, offers a Buyer Assurance Plan that pays 100 percent parts and labor for any original or like replacement part that fails to perform in normal use.

The plan also pays for service due to defects in materials and workmanship.

The Buyer Assurance Plan covers ZF Marine Transmissions for 24, 36, 48 or 60 months.

For a low upfront investment, the Buyer Assurance Plan offers owners of boats with ZF transmissions a number of important benefits, according to Kenneth Petrowski, manager of sales and marketing for the company's marine division.

"The plan allows customers to budget accurately for warrantable service costs by paying one, affordable preset fee," Mr. Petrowski said. "You lock in your cost for covered parts and service for up to five years. It's an excellent hedge against inflation—a way of keeping costs down no matter what happens to the economy." The coverage may be transferred for a small fee when the boat is sold—an option which enhanced resale value, Mr. Petrowski said.
