Welcome to part two of the Renault Warranty in-depth explanation for new vehicles. The previous article looked at specific situations where your warranty would be invalid, i.e. when the equipment was installed by a non-accredited technician. In part two, we will share more valuable insights into the particular damages and failures that are exempt from the cover provided by the Renault warranty.
What Damages And Failures Are Not Covered By The Renault Warranty?
The Renault warranty for new vehicles covers the cost of repair or replacement of defective parts, materials, or even defects related to assembly and manufacturing recognised by Renault. However, below is a list of damages and failures that are not covered by the Renault warranty:
- Damages as a result of misuse, accident, theft or fire (more information in your Renault Owner’s Manual)
- Issues due to the use of dirty or improper lubricants, fuel or fluids
- Damages as a direct result of fitting non-genuine Renault parts
- Poor repair work, alterations or tampering by a technician who is not Renault accredited
- All broken glass except if it is the result of material defects or shoddy workmanship
- Normal daily wear and tear including chips, scratches, dings and dents
- Damage as a result of environmental factors such as stone chipping, bodywork degradation from acid rain, tree sap or salt. Please note that this also includes any unforeseen weather events (natural disasters) like lightning, floods, wind- and sand storms, floods and hail
And this concludes the damages and failures that the Renault warranty will not cover. Remember, all of our parts are designed and manufactured to work harmoniously so any non-genuine parts could easily cause damage even if it was properly installed.
