One of the first things people ask when buying a new car is whether it comes with a warranty. The good news is that the Renault Warranty is one of our hallmarks which we stand by. As one of the leading car brands in South Africa, we believe in our product and have tailored a warranty that proves our unwavering faith in our workmanship.
Considering that every contract comes with fine print, we prefer doing business with complete transparency. Considering what it takes to read and completely understand a contract, we’ve compiled this article to explain the limitations of the Renault Warranty, and when it might be invalid.
What Are The Renault Warranty Exceptions?
The Renault Warranty safeguards you when buying any of our new vehicles against malfunctioning parts and components. Keep in mind though that battery, adjustment and the recharge of air conditioning are not covered for the full period of the Renault Warranty. These particular components fall under different warranty periods which we’ll cover in more detail with a later article so keep an eye on our blog for any updates.
For now, we take a closer look at when your warranty will actually be invalid:
- Any time when you use another technician to install accessories or equipment. You have to use a Renault technician at a registered dealership
- The Renault Warranty does not include tyre changes as this is a conditional item
- Parts and labour costs that form a part of the required or recommended maintenance service
- If your vehicle requires normal maintenance items during the course of your vehicle service which includes wheel balancing, wheel alignment, filter replacements and windshield wiper inserts among others. We recommend asking your Renault dealer for a full list of these items which they will happily provide you for reference purposes
- Any indication that your Renault’s odometer has been tampered with
- The Renault warranty does not cover inconvenience, commercial loss, incidental and consequential damages associated with the loss of a Renault vehicle
The Renault warranty includes the replacement or repair of a genuine Renault part or accessory, supplied by Renault, which proves to be defective. This extends to material or workmanship under normal use during the warranty period. Renault will repair or replace the part and/or accessory without additional charges but wear and tear parts are excluded.
We hope that this article has shed some light on the limitations of the Renault Warranty. As previously mentioned, keep an eye out for the next blog where we will touch on the list of excluded items in terms of damages and failures.
