No more 2 year warranty on Approved Used from September

Post by Ian_S » Wed Aug 14, 2019 6:46 pm

Just received an email from my dealer saying the 2 year approved used warranty is dropping to 1 year from September.... :o

Strange update to send you. Do you have an approved used that's within the warranty period?

Surely if you were part way through a two year warranty given as part of an approved used purchase the warranty would have to be honoured as it formed part of your contract at purchase?

OK, maybe I've phrased it badly. It was a sales email, meaning that from 1st September, Used Approved only come with a 1 year warranty, so if you want to get a used Land Rover with 2 yrs warranty (and a deposit contribution too...) then hurry up... :)

Existing warranties will remain unaffected.

However, if you were contemplating a used LR and a 2 year warranty was an important factor, it sounds like that's ending.

Interesting sales tactic i.e. a warranty is such a valuable thing on a LR that you’ll regret not having a longer one, so buy now! :-)

Shows their confidence in their product !

Or the marketing men wanting to sell extended warranties to get the profits back

What do other brands do in terms of used warranty period? I always thought 2 years was quite generous, perhaps they’ve realised no one else does it so why should LR?

Or maybe they don’t fancy trying to fix things at their Expense on a 5 year old car (assuming they sell up to 3 year old cars). Or their supplier has increased the cost to LR that they don’t want to bear.

:idea: Prehaps they are considering having a 5 year warranty like some other manufactures have on new vehicles :lol:

My 2 year warranty has been a godsend. Only 9 months in and already.

-tracking fixed
-satnav software updated (twice)
-exhaust rattle fixes
-new rear tail light fitted

Probably worth the extra I paid by getting it from the main dealer already.
