    Been looking for an after market warranty option but everything that comes up on Google has terrible reviews. Wondering if any one here has purchased an aftermarket warranty that has worked good for them . Have a 2018 Peterbilt 640xxx miles . Was overhauled 40,000 miles ago. But would like a warranty option if there’s any good ones

    Cummins is supposed to have a used truck warranty. @Midwest Trucker might know about it.

    The Cummins Encore warranty or “2nd owner” warranty has to be inside 6 years and 600,000 miles I do believe.

    However, I’d still look it up on Cummins website if I was you @Brandon0928 as things may have changed.

    Edit: Did some leg work for you. You very well may be able to get coverage as it says 7 year 750k now as long as your the 2nd owner of the motor.

    Seems like a waste since most common issues are emissions related and that's not on the list?

    That’s true but I’ve had two complete overhauls paid for through this program that would have cost me a good $60,000 or more. So, it’s very worth it IMO. Chances are if you can’t easily afford brand new, then you can’t very easily afford an overhaul so it’s nice extra insurance.

    One of my old customers had Premium2k?

    It covered 50% IIRC of his ISX injectors, and 100% on a major APU repair. He said it covered his truck to 1 mil miles, and it cost 7k$ when he bought it.

    If it's a cummins go with encore warranty right from cummins. The other ones it will nickle and dime you for every little thing. If the shop ur using doesn't write it up right they will decline everything.
