Peugeot joins warranty war
Published 06/11/2011 | 05:00
THE BATTLE for new car sales next year has moved up a gear with Peugeot now joining the fray in offering far better warranty terms. Hyundai and Kia have set the bar very high with respectively five-year and seven-year warranties. Peugeot has announced details of its four-year warranty across its passenger car range in Ireland. All passenger cars registered from January 1 up to the end of March 2012 will now come with a bonus of four years' warranty and four years' roadside recovery.
The four-year warranty and roadside recovery offer is applicable across the whole Peugeot range: the nippy Peugeot 107, winner of International Engine of the Year 2009 and 2010, the newly launched facelift Peugeot 207 and 308, a world record-setter in 2009 for best consumption, the 3008 Crossover, Continental Irish Car of the Year 2010, the Peugeot 5008 seven-seater MPV, Continental Irish Family Car of the Year 2011, the stylish Peugeot RCZ, Continental Irish Performance Car of the Year 2011 and the newly-launched Peugeot 508, winner of Fleet World's Best New Car 2011 award.
Mark Hayes, Peugeot marketing manager, said, "The Peugeot range has never been better, with an award-winning car to suit every motoring taste. We are moving from a three-year warranty to a four-year warranty in 2012, in a bid to give customers even more peace of mind motoring and even better motoring value."
Peugeot will continue to offer a three-year 100,000km warranty across its range of light commercial vehicles.
