Vehicle manufacturers take immense pride in their work and they understand that when you sign-up for a brand new car, you expect a certain level of reliability and quality. Regardless of whether it’s a budget-friendly brand or a more premium, prestigious or luxury make, you would still expect the various elements of the vehicle to work as they should.
To show how confident they are in their engineering skills and manufacturing processes, the manufacturer’s will guarantee their work with a Manufacturer’s Warranty. If there’s an issue, however, then the car maker will fix this issue at no extra cost. Also, the fault can be investigated and repaired at any franchised dealership, making it much more convenient for you.
Part of leasing is the acquisition of a brand new vehicle, so any new lease car will be covered under that manufacturer’s warranty.
What is Covered?
A manufacturer’s warranty will typically apply to any mechanical or electrical issue with the car, where it is a fault caused in the manufacturing of the vehicle. This usually includes issues with the engine, fuel and ignition systems, cooling systems, electrical systems, gearbox and clutch transmissions, steering and suspension.
Modern cars are closer related to computers than cars of yesteryear, so there is an increased range of intricate connections and components involved in the running of the car.
What’s not Covered?
Anything that is expected to deteriorate due to the car being driven in normal circumstances. So, things like brake pads and tyres are normally not covered - neither are consumables like engine oil, coolant and fuel.
Additionally, faults, damage and issues caused by driver misuse or an accident would not be covered under a manufacturer’s warranty.
How Long Does A Manufacturer’s Warranty Last?
This differs greatly from make to make - sometimes even model to model within the same make. Almost all will cover the car for the majority of a lease, if not the full term. You can usually expect the warranty to last for 3 years or until the car has been driven 60,000 miles, but always check to be certain.
