Firm to offer five-years of servicing, health checks, warranty, MOT cover and breakdown cover

Chevrolet has launched a new five-year promise scheme for all its models, which includes five-years of free servicing, a warranty, roadside assistance, MOT test cover and vehicle checks.

Chevrolet claims the new scheme is the most generous warranty and aftersales package ever seen in the UK. It covers every model in its range, including the recently-introduced Spark and Cruze models.

The package includes a five-year warranty, five years of free servicing, five years of roadside assistance, five years of annual vehicle healthchecks and free MOT test cover for five years.

“Other makers have offered long warranties, but never with the same level of back-up,” said Chevrolet’s UK MD Mark Terry. “We’re that confident in the quality of our products that we’re prepared to underwrite our reputation for dependable high value motoring with such a comprehensive, all-encompassing package.”

The firm has also said it will launch “another new generation of cars” at the Paris motor show in September.

Is two years extra warranty really worth more than 5 years of free servicing, roadside assistance, vehicle health checks AND MOT tests?

Apart from fuel, insurance and tyres, the Chevy deal sounds like 5 years free motoring to me.

Kia's 7-year warranty is nothing like as wide-ranging as this, and is full of caveats. This is a much better package.

To be honest, If I had purchased a new car, I would much prefer 5 years of free servicing, a warranty, roadside assistance, MOT test cover and vehicle checks, than just a 7 year warranty.

5 years of free MOT is worth either £40 or £80 depending on whether they give you a free test at the end of the 5th year, otherwise its just 1 test £40 big deal!. shopping around its easy to get a sub £40 MOT.

An MOT is what, £54 now? You'll have to have two of those (and if you go slightly early you can fit three in to the cover) - so saving £100-£150 already. Vehicle checks, two a year, maybe £250 saving there. Free servicing, now that's awesome. Perhaps GM will take Chevrolet's place in the European market seriously now - rather than just pedalling low-rate Daewoo tat (having said that the straight 6 in the "epica" is surprisingly nice!).

Why the quibbling over the details? Many people regard a car as no more than another domestic appliance and the likelihood of five years hassle free motoring could be enough to persuade them to buy a Chevrolet, instead of a similar car without a total package like this. For once Chevrolet should be applauded.

This kinda leave the question of how will Vauxhall/Opel respond? Surely if they are seen as the superior brand to Chevy they will have to offer equal if not better?

GM needs to be very careful how it starts to play its two main European brands against each other....or is the long term plan to dominate with Chevy and ditch Vauxhall/Opel once Chevy (Daewoo) outsells them in Europe?

Who knows what the 'new' GMs plans are! Here's hoping though they get their act together and make Vauxhall/Opel and Chevy into class leading cars (including after sales and warranty) to compete with VW and Seat/Skoda respectively
