Michelin Offers Canadians More for Passenger, Light-Truck Tires

MICHELIN OFFERS CANADIANS MORE WITH NEW PROMISE PLAN FOR PASSENGER, LIGHT-TRUCK TIRES

Free Flat-Tire Assistance, 30-Day Guarantee and Additional Mileage Warranties  

 Laval, Quebec (Sept. 6, 2011) - Call it the real-wheel deal. Since Sept. 1, 2011, Canadian consumers who purchase a set of four MICHELIN® tires automatically receive the new Michelin Promise PlanTM, the first offer of its kind in the tire industry.

The Michelin Promise Plan delivers more than just safe, fuel-efficient and long-lasting tires. The program, which rolled into tire retailers last week, is a robust guarantee and warranty plan that’s sure to gain traction with consumers. The Plan offers a free 30-day satisfaction guarantee, three-year flat-tire changing assistance and additional mileage warranties on passenger and light-truck replacement tires*.

"This is an entirely new way of thinking about tire service, " said Peter Allen, president of Michelin Canada. "While other companies offer piecemeal warranty packages, we are the first to provide a comprehensive package, reminding consumers that with Michelin, you get more. Consumers can drive with peace of mind knowing that Michelin offers the highest quality product and the highest quality warranty in the industry."

The Michelin Promise Plan:

30-Day Satisfaction Guarantee: If you don’t like the tires, we’ll take them back!

If customers are not 100 percent satisfied with their purchase, they can bring their Michelin replacement tires back to the point of purchase within 30 days for a no-cost exchange, including all mounting and balancing charges - no questions asked.

Flat-Tire Changing Assistance: If you get a flat, we’ll change it or tow you for free!

Consumers can call a toll-free number 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for a qualified service professional to replace a flat tire with their inflated spare or request a tow to the nearest Michelin-approved tire dealer of their choice (up to 150 miles away) at no cost.

Treadwear Mileage Warranty: Michelin tires last; we’ll prove it.

Since Sept. 1, 2011, all standard Michelin passenger and light truck tires (replacement and original equipment) are covered by a limited warranty for treadwear.  All details, including applicable conditions and limitations, can be found at www.michelinman.ca/promise.
