    Volkswagen announces five-year warranty – with a catch - HOME1.INFO

    Out with the old and in with the new … VW introduces five-year warranty coverage on new models. YET another car company has moved to five-year warranty with Volkswagen joining the growing list of brands putting pressure on market leader Toyota, who so far refuses to budge from three-year coverage. Most of the Top 10 brands now offer five-year factory-backed warranties, many increasing their coverage since the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ACCC embarked on its in-depth review of consumer rights in the car industry.

    While the disclaimer on the Volkswagen deal says the offer runs out at the end of this year, News Corp Australia understands it is likely to become permanent next year.

Therefore, many brands are formally increasing coverage from three years to five because they are obliged to fix the car under ACL in any case — if routine maintenance has not been neglected.

Holden spent much of flicking between five and seven years warranty, depending on the model, but has since settled on five-year protection.

    Subaru offers five-year warranty from time to time but says it has no current plans to offer extended coverage full time. Kia Australia has doubled its sales over the past four years and the company attributes much of that growth to seven-year warranty coverage.

    Five-year pioneer Hyundai says it is now considering boosting its coverage from five years to seven. Hyundai was first with five-year warranty coverage in Australia and is now considering a switch to seven. This reporter is on Twitter: Log in No account? Sign up Log out news.
