The game may have changed overnight for your new car warranty
Mitsubish Motors Australia Limited overnight announced arguably the biggest change to new car warranty programs in over a decade. Embargoed until this morning Mitsubishi has become the company with the best new car warranty in Australia
The Diamond Advantage Program has three components:
- 10-year/ 200,000km new car warranty. If owners do not service with a Mitsubishi dealer, they will still be covered by Mitsubishi’s 5-year/100,000km warranty.
- 10 year/150,000km capped price servicing, and
- 4 year roadside assistance, if they service with an authorised Mitsubishi Dealer.
Mitsubishi Motors’ Director of Marketing and Operations, Rob Nazzari said:
“This new 10-year extended warranty puts owners in control. Every Mitsubishi already has at least a 5-year warranty. Now, with our 10-year Diamond Advantage program, owners that complete their scheduled capped-price services with an authorised Mitsubishi Dealer will enjoy a 10-year warranty, 10-year capped price servicing and up to 4 years of roadside assistance.”
And yes, there are some conditions to it, but if you’re a buyer of a Mitsubishi product and you service your vehicle with a Mitsubishi dealer, your car is covered for 10 years or 200,000 kilometres, whichever comes first
I was on the Mitsubishi Dealer Council sub committee when the company first launched its 5-year warranty and capped price service. Following Toyota’s capped price program was a game changer for Mitsubishi and it’s dealers and I expect this too will stur the market.
It remains to be seen whether Kia Motors Australia will trump the Mitsubishi effort as they’ve promised, but it will certainly have auto company CEO’s ‘Zooming’ with their respective dealer councils today
