Vauxhall has rolled out its ‘lifetime’ warranty into its Network Q used car network.
It will apply to the second owners of cars less than 12 months old and with less than 30,000 miles on the odometer who buy the car from a Network Q retailer.
The scheme, dubbed Network Q Lifetime Warranty, follows the launch of Vauxhall’s Lifetime Warranty on new cars. The firm said that one in 10 buyers since the scheme was launched would not have bought their cars without it and a third said it was a critical factor in their purchase.
Like the Vauxhall Lifetime Warranty, the Network Q Lifetime Warranty covers all major components, including powertrain, steering system, brake system and electrical equipment.
It is limited to 100,000 miles but there is no time scale for it to expire, hence why it could last a lifetime.
Network Q sold 80,000 used cars in the UK last year and 80 per cent of those sold would have been eligible for the warranty.
The warranty will continue to be eligible provided owners take their cars into a Vauxhall retailer for an annual inspection and keep up with their cars service schedule.
