UPDATE: Jaguar Land Rover Australia has confirmed its limited-time warranty extension to five years and unlimited kilometres, has been extended to included vehicles sold and delivered before September 30 – up from the original June 30 end date. All other details remain as described below.
April 8: As brands work to boost their appeal through the hard months ahead, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Australia has added a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty to its offering for a limited time.
Available on new and demonstrator models sold and delivered between April 1 and June 30 2020 (Now September 30, see update above), the offer is joined by savings equivalent to the GST on each model and a 'Loyalty Bonus' up to $5000 – depending on the model (see bottom of article).
As with most extended warranty offers, the deal includes the standard three-year warranty with an additional two years added.
The stately XJ limousine is not included in the warranty offer, as it is now out of production and only a few vehicles remain available at a small number of dealerships.
For both brands, a Loyalty Bonus is also available, offering up to $5000 if you trade in your Land Rover or Jaguar for a new model in the next three months.
Whether the extended warranty offer evolves into a permanent change to Jaguar Land Rover's current three-year factory program remains to be seen, although other brands have tested the waters with longer warranty deals before taking the leap to a full-time increase.
Last month, when Mercedes-Benz increased its factory warranty to five years, a Jaguar Land Rover spokesperson told CarAdvice: “we always monitor the competitive environment but have no plans (to introduce five-year warranty) at this time”.
Speaking with CarAdvice again today, Jaguar Land Rover communications boss James Scrimshaw said the company had no announcement regarding a change to its permanent warranty.
"This is a strategic offering for the next three months and we're happy to be able to bring it to market. We're the only market in the world with this offer, so we're proud of that," he said.
