Peugeot, Citroen passenger cars get five-year warranty

8 February 2018 by Spencer Leech

Peugeot and Citroen Australia (PCA) has introduced a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty with five-year roadside assist for all MY18 passenger vehicles.

The new warranty will include all MY18 vehicles already sold, with the five-year countdown beginning from the date of first registration.

PCA managing director Anouk Poelmann hopes the new warranty will give customers more confidence in the Peugeot and Citroen brand.

"When Peugeot and Citroen arrived in Australia – almost 80 and 100 years ago respectively – reliability and durability was the key to the brand's early success and today that focus has not changed," she said.

"From design to engineering and manufacture, efforts at all levels of the business have focused on quality, durability and reliability, and this new five-year warranty underscores our confidence in the new-generation of Peugeot and Citroen product.

"Peugeot and Citroen are some of the oldest and most storied marques in Australia, and we at PCA and Groupe PSA are determined to make the next chapter one full of confidence and growth."

The warranty excludes Peugeot and Citroen light commercial vehicles, which retain a standard three-year/100,000km term.

This comes as one of the many changes introduced since Inchcape Australasia took over PCA distribution eight months ago.

For the last decade, Peugeot and Citroen have faced a heavy decline in sales numbers, but Inchcape hopes to flip the script by focusing in on the premium side of the market, and reinvigorating brand image with 'strong customer experience initiatives' as new models are released.
