Your guide to warranties

A car warranty is a form of insurance policy. If an item breaks down due to the mechanical or electrical failure of a covered part, the warranty can cover the costs of replacement parts and labour and protect you from unexpected repair bills.

40%* of cars are known to suffer a breakdown in their fourth year, just after most manufacturer warranties expire! A good warranty will help you avoid big repair bills, allow you to budget and potentially be good for your peace of mind - and your pocket!
