Holden offers new 7 year warranty

Holden offers new 7 year warranty

Kia and Holden are now the only two brands in Australia to offer a seven year warranty on new cars – but only for a limited time

HOLDEN has matched Kia’s seven-year factory-backed warranty with the new extended deal offered as standard for all vehicles purchased before December 31 this year, for up to 175,000km.

This includes the new-to-Australia Holden Equinox SUV, which goes on sale from December 1, as well as MY17 Commodores, which have previously been exempt from similar offers. The MY17 Commodore is the last Australian-built car available from Holden.

“Usually car companies reduce prices towards the end of the year as part of a plate clearance,” said Holden’s Executive Director of Sales, Michael Filazzola.

“Holden already has exceptional prices right across the board. This seven-year warranty offer across Holden’s range provides further tangible value to customers.

“This offer will hopefully instill confidence in those considering purchasing a Holden, and highlights our ongoing commitment to customers.”

Kia’s seven-year warranty remains the industry leader, as it is offered without a kilometre limit, unlike Holden’s 175,000km cap.

Toyota, Nissan and Ford offer three-year, 100,000km warranties, while Mazda provides customers with a three-year, unlimited kilometre guarantee.

Hyundai, Honda, Renault, Skoda, and Citroen offer five-year, unlimited kilometre warranties.

Holden also provides customers with lifetime capped-price servicing – something Ford, Mazda, and Hyundai also offer new car buyers.
