In-Service Date

You are here

An in service date on a vehicle is when the original car warranty started on the vehicle when it was first purchased as a new vehicle. The in service date should not be confused with when the vehicle was originally manufactured, instead think of the in service date as the date that the first consumer drove the vehicle off the dealerships parking lot.

Lincoln Certified Warranty

With every certified pre-owned Lincoln comes a certified warranty. The Lincoln certified warranty includes a comprehensive warranty and roadside assistance. The Lincoln certified warranty begins the day the certified pre-owned vehicle is purchased.

Smart Powertrain Warranty

Unlike some car manufacturers, Smart does not offer a separate powertrain warranty. Repairs needed to the components of the powertrain, such as the engine, transmission, transaxle, and drive train systems, are covered under the Smart limited factory warranty if the failures are due to manufacturer defects or workmanship. The powertrain and its components are covered for 2 years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first and begins the date the vehicle is delivered to first owner (in-service date) or the date of first use.

MINI Factory Warranty

All new MINI vehicles come with a new vehicle limited, or factory, warranty.

The Buick roadside assistance program offer services such as emergency towing, battery jump start, fuel delivery services, lock out service and flat tire change. Buick roadside assistance begins at the date of delivery to the first owner (in-service date) or the date of first use.
