VAUXHALL is making second owners feel just as looked after with a new lifetime warranty for used cars.
After the introduction of its Lifetime Warranty to new car owners earlier this year, the firm is now making the warranty available on used cars.
The lifetime cover applies to the second owner of any Vauxhall purchased through Network Q that has covered less than 30,000 miles and is under 12 months old. Warranty coverage continues until the car reaches 100,000 miles.
Vauxhall MD Duncan Aldred said: ‘Vauxhall is so confident of the high quality levels built-in to its current range of cars that it is now offering its new ground-breaking lifetime warranty on used cars.
‘The Network Q Lifetime Warranty is designed to protect our customers against unexpected costs and to give reassurance and peace of mind long after they’ve taken delivery of their used Vauxhall.’
The powertrain, steering system, brake system and electrical equipment are all covered by the Network Q Lifetime Warranty. To keep the warranty valid, owners need to visit a Vauxhall retailer annually for a free vehicle inspection and sustain the manufacturer service schedule.
The news comes two days after Vauxhall were forced to issue a press statement denying reports that the Advertising Standards Authority had banned its Lifetime Warranty advert.
Vauxhall said: ‘The ASA requested that a small number of amendments to the advertising creative should be made to clarify the terms and conditions. In line with this ruling, the Vauxhall Lifetime Warranty Advertising creative was amended in line with ASA recommendations prior to Christmas and this very successful campaign continues to run on all media platforms.’
