Citroen extends used van warranty

The French manufacturer is currently the only van maker in the UK to back a used van warranty, providing cover to owners of vans -or LCVs – in the UK.

Michael Brown, Citroën’s Head of Vehicle Remarketing, commented: "The Citroën Select Approved Used Vehicle Warranty is already the best of its type available in the UK LCV sector.

"Uniquely, for a warranty for used LCVs, it is backed by the manufacturer, based on our new vehicle warranty, rather than an insurance company and, as a result, is far more comprehensive and valuable to the customer."

The Select Approved Used Vehicle Warranty includes a years’ roadside assistance for all vans a quarter of a mile or further from base.

It also includes breakdown assistance to all vans broken down with a quarter of a mile and a recovery service for any destination and up to eight people.

The warranty services are provided by the AA and are available for all Citroen vans that are more than seven years old.

These have been added to the service on top of the standard checks and mileage guarantee and 30-day fault-based exchange offer currently offered by the manufacturer.

The warranty is available through all Perrys Citroen dealers in the UK and covers the entire Citroen van range, including the compact Citroen Nemo up to the large Citroen Relay panel van.

Citroen is currently one of the top five van producers in the UK and has seen sales increase by 25 per cent in the first two months of 2011 compared to the same period last year.
