Audi Australia has announced it will provide five-year, unlimited kilometre warranties and five years free scheduled servicing for new cars sold in May and June.

The offer is available “across a significant number of vehicles” and also includes complimentary registration, stamp duty and CTP insurance. CarAdvice will update this story with confirmation of which cars are not included in the scheme.

The offer sees Audi join rival luxury brands Mercedes, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Genesis in offering five-year warranties, however the brand says it currently has no plans to offer the longer coverage permanently.

“There are no plans to offer [a five-year warranty] permanently at the moment, but we’re always monitoring the market,” Audi Australia’s corporate communications manager Shaun Cleary told CarAdvice.

Further to the extended warranty and servicing offer, Audi will also offer warranty extensions for any customers whose new-car warranty expires between March 1 and May 31.

Audi Australia has also backed its online sales system that launched earlier this month.

“Absolutely the online purchase platform is here to stay,” Mr Cleary told CarAdvice.

“We hope to use the feedback we get from customers to improve it over time. It’s very valuable.”
