Mitsubishi joins Hyundai, Toyota, Subaru, SsangYong as one of the select few car manufacturers to offer customers a five-year warranty on it’s vehicles.
Mitsubishi in the UK has recently introduced a comprehensive five year warranty as standard across its model line up. From January 1 2015, all their cars and commercial vehicles will come as standard with a fully comprehensive five-year warranty package.
By comparison, Renault presently offers a four year warranty, and Kia stands alone in offering its cars with seven year or 100,000 miles cover. Vauxhall did launch a Lifetime Warranty programme in August 2010 but as we recently reported, they decided to reduce it down to a three year/60,000 mile warranty.
Lance Bradley, the managing director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said “the move to a 5-year warranty reflected the brand’s confidence in the quality and reliability of its vehicles”.
On the back of an improved model line-up, Mitsubishi has been improving its sales while recruiting dealers. New car registrations in the year to November 2014 rose 74.4% to 14,443 units giving it a market share of 0.39%.
