Five-Year Warranty Released by Renault Australia

The first European brand to show full support for its new vehicle range with a five-year/unlimited km warranty is Renault Australia.

Until now, the company had for its model range a three-year/unlimited km warranty, but with the new improvement, Renault Australia joins Hyundai, Kia and Mitsubishi in the five-year/unlimited km warranty club.

Although all of the automaker's cars benefit form the new deal, there are some exceptions. One of them is the Renault Sport, which includes the Clio and Megane models offered with a a three-year/100,000km warranty. At the same time, the Renault Light Commercial Vehicles range continues to have a three-year/150,000km coverage.

Justin Hocevar, Renault Australia’s managing director, explains that it’s a strategic move to extend the warranty and by doing this, the value and competitiveness of the French automaker has improved.

We see the five-year warranty, coupled with this exceptional value proposition of our young range of modern, attainable vehicles, as adding a fundamental benefit to customers who are considering the purchase of a new Renault,” Hocevar said. “We are taking a firm leadership position as the first European brand to offer a five-year warranty. This underlines our commitment to this market and to our customers.” he added.

Reliability has been the main issue when it comes to French automakers and Renault was no exception. Hocevar said that the five-year/unlimited km warranty should boost the clients' confidence in choosing to purchase a Renault. “There is a business case behind this offer and it is built on the facts of modern-generation Renault reliability,” he explained.

There has been a perception in that past that Renault reliability was not great, but in the era of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, our warranty claims have fallen dramatically. We are confident this bold move by Renault will be quickly accepted by passenger car buyers across Australia,” he concluded.
