While the German premium brands stubbornly guarantee their cars for only two years, which is the European legal minimum, Jaguar has been offering, for many years, a 3-year contract at no additional cost.
From now on, the warranty that accompanies all new Jaguars running for a shine, that is to say two additional years. For the builder, it is a way to raise the residual values of its range, which should make it possible to lower the rents of LOA and LLD. It is also proof of confidence in the reliability of its cars, which should appeal to some potential customers, who are still worried about the reputation of cars from across the Channel in this area.
What looks like good news will however make some disappointed: the big rollers. Indeed, while the previous 3-year warranty was without mileage limitation, the new expires automatically beyond 150,000 km. Motorists who travel more than 30,000 km per year will therefore no longer be covered before the announced time limit.
Jaguar specifies that even its mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid or electric models are affected by this development. Knowing that these vehicles have fewer breakdowns than the average, this choice seems totally obvious.
