There's nothing like an extended warranty to get sales moving.
It give buyers peace of mind, especially when you're an unknown quantity trying to break into the market place.
Guess Great Wall must be having a tougher time of it in the UK than it is here? News just through that the company has just extended the warranty on its ute to six years or 200,000km double what we get here.
The exended warranty applies to the Great Wall Steed dual cab utility, otherwise known as the V240 ute to Australian buyers. Here V240 gets only three years and 100,00km and there are no plans to alter it.
The extended six-year warranty comprises the 3 year/60,000 mile (100,000km) manufacturer warranty plus a further 3 year/125,000 (200,000km) mile powertrain extended warranty provided by Great Motor Distributors (UK) Limited. The six year warranty is available on all Steeds purchased between now and June 30, 2013.
As well as the new six-year /125,000-mile (200,000km) mechanical warranty, all Great Wall Steeds benefit from a six-year anti-perforation warranty, three-year paint warranty and three-year roadside assistance.
