Renault Decreases Warranty From Four to Three Years
Renault has made the decision to decrease its new car warranty to three years and 60,000 miles, which used to be at four years and 100,000 miles.
During the announcement of its new three-year servicing named Easylife Pack which consumers can avail of for £99 (roughly $140), they also mentioned they will be reducing the warranty across its range to three years as well.
There are exceptions to this rule, however. The Koleos SUV and the ZOE EV will get the same three-year warranty, but instead of being reduced to a 60,000-mile cap it will still retain the original coverage for 100,000 miles.
For those who wish to avail of the original four-year warranty, there will be three options. One is to pay a fee which ranges from £229 (almost $320) to £349 ($485) for an extra year, another is to shell out £300 (around $420) to get free breakdown cover aside from the extended warranty, or customers can opt to pay £400 (around $560) for a year’s extra warranty in combination with another year’s servicing.
A Renault spokesman said, “With a significant proportion of our customers renewing their car before the start of the fourth year warranty, and therefore seeing no benefit from the extension, we have chosen to enhance the ownership package offered.”
“The EasyLife Pack offers customers 3 years/30,000 miles servicing for just £99, saving up to £560 on the previous package offered,” the representative added.
Renault’s powertrain and electric battery warranty remains as it is.
