A new car, SUV or pickup truck is likely your second biggest purchase after a house and protecting that investment is significant. A new vehicle warranty from your vehicle manufacturer is essential to every new vehicle owner given the expansive number of components it covers. Warranties last varying lengths, with variants of 5 years and 90,000 kilometers among the longer warranty periods. Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oils help extend engine life and protect for up to 15 years or 800K kilometers, whichever comes first, guaranteed1.

The Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty demonstrates the confidence Pennzoil has in its Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil, so you can confidently choose the product that ensures you will be on the road for years to come. The Pennzoil Platinum line of full synthetic motor oils are all part of the Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty. Unlike traditional synthetic motor oils made from crude oil, Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oils is the first motor oil made from natural gas and are 99.5% free of engine clogging impurities.

Warranty Details

The Pennzoil Lubrication Limited Warranty provides options up to 15 years or 800,000 kilometers of protection and covers 15 vehicle engine parts that may fail due to engine wear or which experience abnormal wear. Engines have a lot of moving parts that generate a lot of friction. This constant rubbing produces a lot of heat and that heat causes the oil in your vehicle to become less viscous. If its protective layer thins out too much, your vehicle’s engine parts will begin to grind together causing wear and lessening performance and efficiency. No other leading synthetic motor oil provides better protection from friction3 than Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic motor oil.

It is important to follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendation for when to change your motor oil and which viscosity grade to use. Although synthetic motor oils are designed to provide better protection under extreme heat and heavy loads, only Pennzoil Platinum motor oil will help extend engine life and protect it for up to 15yrs/800K kilometers1.
