Jaguar is launching a new five-year warranty across its entire vehicle range in Ireland, including the electric Jaguar I-Pace, and all mild or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
This decision makes Jaguar the first luxury-car company to extend its warranty period beyond the industry-standard three years.
For five years, or 150,000km, whichever comes first, Jaguar will repair or replace manufacturing defects, according to the warranty regulations in material or workmanship, completely free of charge.
And with the smart combination of InControl Remote, which optimises breakdown assistance and includes automatic emergency calls and the ability to remotely interact with the vehicle from anywhere, it makes life easier when it really counts.
Jaguar expects the new five-year warranty to have a positive impact on the residual value of every vehicle in the range. This spells good news for customers as strong residual values ultimately translate into lower monthly lease rates.
Eddie Kavanagh, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Ireland, says the prolonged new car warranty "shows the confidence in quality and reliability in Jaguar Cars and has the potential to uplift Jaguar’s RVs by up to two per cent".
“Moreover, there will be customer benefits in assurance of cost certainty and predictability through reduced follow up cost because all or at least most of the potential parts are covered.”
