    Vauxhall announce Lifetime Warranty on new vehicles

    Announced at 2pm today, Vauxhall are now offering a lifetime warranty on new vehicles (excluding vans) registered from the 5th of August 2010 (and back dated to vehicles registered from the 1st of August).

    The warranty will cover the first registered keeper for either 100,000miles or for the lifetime that they own the vehicle. I'll post more details up as and when they arrive.

    Personally I think this is a great move for Vauxhall.

    Goes without saying really, you cant modify a car and still expect the manufacturer to pick up the bill.

    As with standard warranties exclusions apply, but basically yes the majority of your engine/mechanical parts are covered.

    Lifetime warranty basically means as long as you own the car, so buy the car and its warrantied until either 100,000miles or the warranty will continue for as long as you own the car, so keep the car for say 15years and its still under 100,000miles its still covered.

    As far as Im led to beleive if the car is sold then it will go back to the 3year/60k warranty.

    Just to add, The lifetime warranty is at the moment applicable to first registered keepers, however Vauxhall will shortly announce a second keeper programme which will enable second owners to take benefit of the lifetime warranty.

    I wonder if you need a full vauxhall service history for it to stay valid?

    Covers extends to fleet and retail sectors and appies to all major components throughout the car's life, including powertrain, steering system, brake system and electrical equipment. Upkeep of the warranty relies on customers visiting a Vauxhall dealer annually for a free vehicle inspection
    I wonder if they cover VXR turbos after they pop at 40K ??
