Mitsubishi reverts to five-year warranty, offers 10-year coverage on cars serviced at dealers

Mitsubishi has reverted to a five-year/100,000km warranty after offering seven-year coverage on its most popular models for almost two years – and will add 10-year/200,000km coverage to vehicles serviced within the dealer network from day one. Mitsubishi notified the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) of the change two weeks ago and the corporate watchdog is yet to announce any adverse findings.

Is your car's warranty at risk if you skip a scheduled service?

Although they're designed to make your life easier in the long run, scheduled services can be a pain when they pop up out of nowhere and add to your living expenses. It's easy for an annual service to slip through the cracks. Before you know it, it's six months since you got that first reminder and you're encountering some kind of mechanical issue that probably could have been avoided. Where does this leave you with your car's warranty?

Hyundai still not sold on permanent seven-year warranty

Hyundai is holding back on rolling out a permanent seven-year warranty across its range to match sister brand Kia – even though it was the pioneer of longer vehicle warranties, establishing five-year coverage more than 20 years ago. Hyundai introduced a seven-year warranty on most models in its range from October through to the end of December in 2019, and has applied the extra coverage intermittently to a smaller number of models in the first half of 2020.

Mercedes-Benz moves to five-year warranty, pressure builds on Audi, BMW, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover to follow

Mercedes-Benz has become the first German luxury car maker to introduce a five-year warranty across its entire range – a move certain to put pressure on rivals such as Audi, BMW, Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover to increase their three-year coverage which is now well below the industry average. To date, 14 of the Top 15 car brands have introduced five-, six- or seven-year warranties over the past three years.

Holden rules out seven-year warranty

Holden won't move to a seven-year warranty to win back buyers – but it could extend free servicing based on the success of its current offer on the Colorado four-wheel drive ute, and seven-seat Trailblazer and Acadia SUVs. Holden boss Dave Buttner said the company has no plans to match Kia's seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty – which has led the industry since October 2014, and could soon be matched by Mitsubishi.
