What Does The Car Manufacturer Warranty Cover?

At Stable Vehicle Contracts, rest assured that each of our vehicles is accompanied by the standard manufacturer's warranty. This means when you drive off, you're shielded from unexpected expenses in case of any issues.

What is a Full Manufacturer's Warranty?

Consider a car warranty as a safety net. In the event of mechanical issues or faults like engine troubles or steering problems, a car warranty steps in to cover the costs of parts and labour needed for repairs. Essentially, it shields you from bearing the brunt of hefty repair bills, granted that the issue falls within the coverage of your warranty.

Typically lasting anywhere from one to three years, car warranties vary in duration, with some stretching shorter or longer than the standard term.

To qualify for a car warranty, vehicles generally need to meet certain criteria regarding age and mileage.

Now, let's delve into the diverse array of car warranties:

First off, there's the manufacturer's warranty, also referred to as a new car warranty. Every brand-new vehicle comes bundled with this warranty. It typically spans three years or a specific mileage threshold. The beauty of it? No extra steps are needed on your end; it automatically accompanies your new lease.

Keep in mind, that adherence to certain conditions, such as regular servicing, is imperative for the warranty to remain valid.

Then there's the extended car warranty, a viable option post-manufacturers' warranty expiration. It functions similarly in covering repair expenses, albeit with potentially stricter terms and more exclusions, particularly as your vehicle ages.

What is covered under the Full Manufacturer's Warranty for my new lease?

In essence, car warranties step in to foot the bill for repairs when something malfunctions within your vehicle's systems. These can encompass various components, including:

  • Engine
  • Fuel system
  • Gearbox and clutch
  • Steering mechanisms
  • Brakes
  • Electrical systems, encompassing in-car entertainment
  • Air conditioning

While some policies may extend coverage to additional parts, others might have specific exclusions. It's crucial to thoroughly review the warranty coverage details before committing to a policy.

Typically, wear and tear aspects aren't included in car warranties. Parts that undergo regular usage, often termed "consumables," are usually exempt from coverage. This category may include items like tyres, windscreen wipers, brake pads, and batteries, as their gradual deterioration is anticipated and necessitates replacement over time.

What isn't covered under the Full Manufacturer's Warranty?

As mentioned above, certain items are not covered by the full manufacturer's warranty. These are:

  • Batteries
  • Bulbs
  • Wheels
  • Tyres
  • Wear and tear
  • Cosmetic damage
  • Accidental damage
  • Third-party repairs or equipment
