Don’t Be Fooled!! All warranties are not created equal. There are lots of Extended Warranties that extend coverage over drivetrain components. But CarpenterCare is the only extended warranty that covers the drivetrain components (Chassis), PLUS the non-drivetrain components (Body), like rear A/C units, electric door motors, lift components, and other items that every bus owner knows to be expensive to repair.
