All other models, including Astra, Barina, Spark and Trax get a five-year warranty instead of the usual three years, with all warranty periods coming with roadside assist coverage.
Colorado and Trailblazer also get five-year warranty and roadside assist plus three-years’ free scheduled servicing, based on nine months/15,000km intervals.
2017 plate Holdens – new and demonstrator – also get the five-year warranty with roadside assist and the three years free scheduled servicing.
While the cynics among us would say extending the warranty is a way to discount slow-selling models, Holden’s executive director of marketing, Mark Holland says it reflects the brand’s self-assurance.
“We want more and more people to come and take a look at just how good these vehicles are and experience some of the great engineering work from our talented engineers – our new seven-year warranty on Commodore and Equinox shows just how confident we are.
“With extended warranties across the range and world-class new products, now is a great time to buy a Holden,”
The offer, which applies to vehicles purchased before March 31, sees Commodore and Equinox become the only non-Kia vehicles to be covered for seven years, and follows a similar offer at the end of last year, which proved successful.
