Actually a 100K mile warranty.

These offers are always a double edged sword to manufacturers. What this offer says to me is that Vauxhall only think their cars will last 100,000 miles.
#3
Is this a HotUKDeal?

I thought that it was permanent.
1 Like #4
ok,, good deal, only thing is, I would do 100k in 7 years, are they saying that the car will only last 7 years????!
#5
Good start Vauxhall but why is it not transferable?
Good I guess for people who will never drive 100k in there lifetime??
#6
Compels you always use the pricey Vauxhall dealer service and get all the recommended work done.

Yep thats the catch, and you cant transfer it either.

And how much are VX charging for these checks i bet they wont be cheap
#8
you dont have to have it serviced by dealer i dont think either way for most non company car purchases 100k is fine for the term of your ownership, i ordered a zafira model which is delivered in a couple of weeks and i reckon ill probs keep the car 4-5 years and i will probs average around 18-19k a year so seems good to me... bottom line vauxhalls are quite reliable anyway bought a new vectra in 08 done 45k miles and never needed any work done..
#9
also vauxhalls are reasonably cheap to service and the service interval is 18k miles
#10
Good on Vauxhall!!! 100K miles will be adaquate for most new car buyers as they tend to keep them only for the first 3 to 5 years (especially when used for company mileage). My Vectra 57 plate (company supplied car) has not been the most relible and this improved warranty demonstrates Vauxhalls confidance in their newer car ranges.

I have just purchased a 9 month old 59 registered Passat which only has the balance of the 3 years warranty. This is laughable when compared to other manufacturers warranties, especially Kia (7 years, unlimited) and Hyundai (5 years, unlimited miles).

You dont have to have it serviced, but you do need to do the yearly inspection to keep the warranty going with a dealer, you really need to work out how much that costs and if the work needs to be done by them
#12
Whats the odds Opel pull the Vaxuhall brand....

They are also doing 4 years deals on vans which look good and incl warranty servicing amongst other things...

I do fancy an Insignia, but dont feel comfortable with vauxhall at the moment.
#13
I have a 9 yr old merc and i bet it drives as good as any brand new vauxhall
Now that's a good car not these (and Ive had them too)
I am going to buy another merc when this ones knack-ed but when ? who knows., it might outlive me.
9yrs old and walked every MOT (tells you something doesn't it?)

#14
read the small print most of the parts are only covered for 12months as with their warranties now, ie all interior parts, seats carpets plastic door handles seat belts, the list is endless only engine gear box and diff are covered Sorry this is still a "m mouse" deal
#15
to compare a merc to a vauxhall is insane however newer mercs arent that great truth be told in terms of what they once were.. 5 year warrantee on a 12k car is great value for money

Have to say that I think you are lucky if your 9yr old Merc drives better than a new Vauxhall. Merc haven't screwed a car together properly "generally" speaking since 1995. They never do especially well in reliability surveys. In fact "http://www.reliabilityindex.com/top-100" has the Astra and Corsa above the first Merc.
#17
This will 'suck' some people in who might not fully appreciate what a new car warranty does actually cover. The biggest thing to remember is that a new car warranty will only ever cover faults and defects in materials and workmanship. So if at 95k miles your engine starts using a gallon of oil a week, please don't be fooled into thinking that VX will start to think about fixing it. I would fully expect them to claim fair wear and tear.

The Lifetime Warranty is valid only for the following components of the vehicle:

Engine and transmission and electronic parts of the powertain such as ECU.
Powertrain: drive shafts, differential gears, electronic parts of the powertrain.
Steering: steering gear, pump, electronic parts of the steering system.
Brake system: ABS/ESP system including hydraulic unit, brake booster, main and wheel brake cylinders, vacuum pump, brake proportioning valve.
Fuel system: fuel pump, injection pump, electronic parts of the fuel injection systems.
Exhaust system: Turbo charger including actuator, electronic parts of the exhaust system, Lambda Sond.
Cooling system: radiator, heater core, thermostat, water pump, radiator for the automatic transmission, cooling fan.
Safety systems: Electronic control unit for airbags and for seat-belt tensioners.
Aircondition: Compressor, evaporator, condenser, fan.
Electrical equipment: electronic control units excluding navigation, lighting and radar system, but including repair by flashing new software, generator, starter, electronic parts of the ignition system, ignition wiring, central electric units, instrument cluster unit, board computer, wiper motors, heating ventilator, horn, electronic parts of the window lifters, front/ rear window heaters (excluding breakage), electronic parts of the sunroof, the central door locking and the convertible roof.

Wiring harnesses, hoses and connectors are excluded.


I'm not voting either way. It'll be good for some but won't suit everyone.

That would do for me!! Had the water pump sieze in a 4-year old Saab 9-3 (40k miles, full dealer service history), which then threw the cam belt and mashed the valve gear. Saab don't schedule water pump replacement until 90k miles, but v. reluctant to assist with costs...

Conversely, just bought 2010 Merc C180 (to replace an earlier Saab 9-3). Too soon to comment on reliability, although seems OK at moment. However, M-B are offering free breakdown/recovery in UK and continental Europe for free - providing full service history by dealer - for something like 25 years!

It's actually not bad. Most cars have a 3 year warranty - used to be limited to 60K miles on those 3 years. Since then, Hyundai, Kia and Honda have improved their warranties - lets hope it continues!
#20
This this is good - If nothing else it moves the bar in the right direction after kia 7 year and toyota 5 year warranty. Ford will need to follow suit and then so will everyone else. Yes they will always try and weasle their way out if they can but this is a lot berrer than what was around before.
#21
What about all those pre-registered Vauxhalls on the dealers' forecourts?
It says that the warranty is not transferrable!

A very good point and I suspect it will have a big effect on the prices of those vehicles. Pre Registration is a large part of the way dealerships operate these days.
#23
Aren't 100k mile warranties standard in U.S. ???
At least it's a step in the right direction
#24
Better than not having it but not as good as the headlines suggest. Read the terms carefully to ensure they suit you. Hardly a reason to buy Vauxhall if it isn't your first choice of car but a good bonus if you are buying anyway.

Not really a Hot Deal but a worthwhile post anyway.
#25
One good thing about the recession is companies are having to try harder to tempt us to buy. Good on Vauxhall, seems to be happening with a few manufacturers hopefully all will follow. Bit gutted to anyone who bought one a month ago though!
#26
Sorry voted cold.
This is marketing hype at its very worst.
As other have stated its not a lifetime warranty as it is limited to 100,000 miles.
It is only available to the first registered owner.
You have to have it serviced at an authorised Vauxhall Repairer at least every 12 months to maintain the warranty.
Its a step in the right direction but, still lacking when compared to Kia and Hyundai.
Kia is 7 years warranty with unlimited mileage for the first 3 years thereafter its again capped at 100,000 miles.
Hyundai is 5 year warranty with unlimited mileage.
Along with the above BMW, Mercedes, Mini and Mitsubishi are the manufactures that have an unlimited mileage on their 3 year warranty.
What I would like to see is all the manufacturers starting to offer all inclusive servicing for 3 years included in the list price of the vehicles. So effectively your only outlay is consumables or wear and tear items.

I'd prefer it if they simply didn't keep trying to sell these cars at stupid prices.If that were the case dealers wouldn't be jam packed with preregistration deals.Just set an attractive price .

That was the original Daewoo marketting strategy...didn't do much for them to be honest.

Funny thing is that in the USA the Honda Fit (AKA Jazz) only requires oil and filters changes up to 100,000 miles. The local Honda dealer often has specials on that service for as little as $16.99!!!!

The car only gets serviced when the light comes on - not bad at all really - then again most "servicing" is really just an oil and filter change at the end of the day... ;)

Depending what Honda dealer you visit, the mark 1 Jazz only needs 4 spark plugs changed instead of the 8 the service book says.

Only about a year or two ago looked like vauxhall going to the wall with GM in crunch.
Warranty would then be worth nothing zilch!
In fact by the time youpaid for overpriced servicing might as well take out an aftermarket warranty, but there again your vauxhall will be tired by then and you'llprobably want rid anyway. cold for me
whichever way you look at it. just a bit of marketing that sounds good worth very little in reality.
#31
lol.. lifetime warranty with 100k millage limit.. that's like saying unlimited internet with 100gb fair use policy
#32
It's not a full warranty as it's limited to a handful of parts. it's a total con but people who buy Vauxhall deserve all they get...

The jazz has an 8 cylinder engine oO

Anyway, this is a step in the right direction imo. Due to pressure from kia/hyundai etc. warranties are getting longer, which can only be a good thing?
#34
No, a 4 cylinder one with twin sparks per cylinder.
#35
Does this mean they only expect their cars to manage 100k miles in a lifetime?

Isn't JD Power a bit subjective though? - It's not just about reliability and how little the cars breakdown.

If it was, I doubt you'd see any non-east Asian manufacturer other than perhaps Skoda in there?
#39
If I was buying a new car it wouldn't be a Vauxhall, too many chavs have them IMO, the Insignias are quite nice though

Saying 'lifetime warranty' is a bit of a con really as it only takes a few years to get to 100k, especially if you commute a lot. Most warranties are 100k anyway, voted warm
