Vauxhall Creates "Lifetime Warranty"

Posted on by 15

Sometimes people just need to have a little confidence in the products they make. Whether it’s a pen or a car, if you think it’s going to break, it mostly likely will. That has not rung more true than right now. General Motors’ British subsidiary Vauxhall has created a lifetime warranty for their cars, but it’s not as good as it sounds and, apparently, neither are their cars.

Vauxhall has such little faith in their vehicles that the warranty is only for 100,000 miles, which, coincidentally, is the end of the car’s life, according to Vauxhall. Really? 100,000 miles? They should go longer than that, don;t you think?

The warranty covers the powertrain, steering, brakes, and electric components and to get it, owners must go to a Vauxhall authorized service facility for a free inspection. As of now, the warranty isn’t transferable, but second owners will soon be able to buy the coverage, according to Vauxhall.

This is an unusual move for the company, seeing as how most European cars have just one or two years of warranty, far shorter than what we get here in the U.S. Yet, Hyundai andToyota are now offering five years, withKia giving out seven.

Lifetime warranty? Man that one is great! It’s like you have already acquire an insurance for your car.

I agree with you. All of us are looking forward for a great and superb service. I’ve been wondering if there are any hidden charges in subscribing to lifetime warranty.

Yes, I agree that this thing is kind of an unusual move from a company just like the Vauxhall. I didn’t think that their car is good. But the for a lifetime warranty..I think its pleasing to hear. Well, its for you to decide because, still im not considering to buy one.

Oh yes! They are too overconfident in the good way. Both the manufacturer and the consumer benefits on this warranty. However, I haven’t read any future plan and production for Vauxhall. 

I have to say that I love their confidence, given a chance that its a lifetime warranty.
The consumer would probably enjoyed that much.

Well,that’s nice. Lifetime warranty seems like an overconfidence for the part of Vauxhall. So, they really think that there can go longer than 100,000 miles. I’m afraid that this one is actually a marketing strategy..It’s my guess anywaysmiley

I hate to admit this, but the Sebring sedan is starting to grow on me.

does it mean that the Vauxhall is being too over confident for giving a lifetime warranty for their car..which is a good thing though.

Yes, I wish GM would stop using "Consumer Digest Best Pick" in their marketing. It really devalues their product. Consumer Digest is a complete joke and I would not brag about having anything to do with them.

Haven’t heard a peep from Opel? Did research much did you?Actually, Opel came out first, but their warranty is a bit different. It’s a 5 year "new car" warranty or the first 10.000 km. Which is a bit shorter than Vauxhall, but extends to all owners, not just the first one

If you did less than 100k miles in your lifetime, you’d hope they’d honor it. If not, then they’d be breaking the contract.

nice, this is a good news to the vauxhall customers, I’m pretty sure they wanted to prove that their cars are very reliable and an perform well on the punishing roads.
