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.

Mitsubishi inches closer to seven-year warranty across the range

Mitsubishi has hinted for the second time in two months that it will move to a permanent seven-year warranty across the range, rather than as a special offer on the Triton ute. The seven-year/150,000km warranty — up from the standard five years/unlimited kilometres — was introduced with the facelifted Triton in December 2018.
