New Limited Lifetime Warranty Highlights Quality of Every Monroe Quick-Strut Assembly

Tenneco Inc. has announced that every Monroe Quick-Strut assembly will be covered by a new limited lifetime warranty to highlight the premium quality and added confidence that come with the automotive service industry's best-selling all-in-one strut replacement solution.

Tenneco Inc. has announced that every Monroe Quick-Strut assembly will be covered by a new limited lifetime warranty to highlight the premium quality and added confidence that come with the automotive service industry’s best-selling all-in-one strut replacement solution.

Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies feature all of the premium-quality replacement components – including application-tuned strut, coil spring and bearing plate – needed for a complete strut replacement job. These pre-assembled, bolt-on units enable technicians to reduce by up to 50 percent the time required for a quality job on many applications. This innovative solution has proved so popular that Tenneco has increased Monroe Quick-Strut production capacity by more than 500 percent since 2003.

“A growing share of the strut replacement category is moving toward the Monroe Quick-Strut approach because shops recognize they can not only save time, but also help ensure they won’t face a quality-related comeback down the road,” said Bill Dennie, director, ride control channel management, North American aftermarket, Tenneco. “But these advantages can be lost by choosing a lower quality unit from an unproven offshore source.”

Tenneco’s addition of a limited lifetime warranty to the Monroe Quick-Strut product line helps highlight the dramatic quality differences encountered in today’s strut assembly category. As a leading global original equipment manufacturer, Tenneco precisely tunes each Monroe Quick-Strut assembly to address the unique ride and handling characteristics of the corresponding vehicle application. In addition, each Monroe unit is equipped with a premium-quality strut, OE-quality spring, and a bearing plate designed and manufactured to meet the company’s stringent performance and durability requirements. In some cases, Tenneco includes the same bearings as the OE units to ensure superior performance.

To meet the growing demand for the Monroe Quick-Strut solution, Tenneco will once again introduce dozens of new applications in the coming year. The company in 2008 expanded the Monroe Quick-Strut line to cover a wide range of popular light-truck and SUV models; new part numbers in 2009 will address an array of additional passenger applications entering their prime aftermarket replacement cycle.

Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies for passenger cars are equipped with a premium Sensa-Trac strut tuned to each application’s unique requirements to deliver superior ride and handling characteristics. For light trucks and SUVs, Tenneco offers Monroe Quick-Strut assemblies equipped with a premium Monroe Reflex strut tuned to provide the increased control needed for vehicles featuring a higher center of gravity. Units for the rear positions on light trucks and SUVs also include a precisely calibrated variable-rate coil spring for increased load-carrying capacity.

The benefit of R1234yf is simple. The new refrigerant lasts only 11 days in the atmosphere compared to 13 years for R134a. This is why the EPA is requiring R1234yf to be installed in all new systems by 2021. The European Union required the changeover on Jan. 1, 2017.
So, what does this mean for independent shop owners and technicians? Currently, there are approximately 20 million vehicles on the road with R1234yf in the HVAC system. It is not a question of if, but when your shop will have to deal with one of these systems. While working on R1234yf systems is not that different from the R134a variety in operation or theory, identifying the refrigerant and recharging the system has some new twists.
