“We want our customers to feel that by choosing a SsangYong, they will be looked after the best,” commented Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK.
“Well engineered, extremely well-built in South Korea and consequently very reliable, we are backing our faith in the range by introducing the best and longest warranty available to all models,” said Mr Laird. “We announced a 7-year warranty when launching Musso in the summer for Musso and Rexton - on which the pick-up is based; it was so well received that we have decided to extend the same level of customer protection to all new models. No other vehicle on sale today comes with such comprehensive reassurance, and without the small-print of so many other manufacturer warranties.
“This outstanding industry leading 7-year warranty now applies to all new SsangYong vehicles registered from October 1st ,” he added.
This new warranty can be applied retrospectively to all new Rextons sold since it was launched in October last year, and customers wishing to apply the free upgrade can do so at their dealership or at their next service interval.
The new 7-year warranty can also be applied to all other models purchased between January 1st and September 30th at a cost of £500.
Designed to be totally transparent and give customers complete peace of mind, this new warranty covers all the major mechanical components including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components such as clutch discs and brake friction materials, which could have their life reduced by poor driving, are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
Made in Korea
SsangYong cars are manufactured in South Korea by SsangYong Motor, which is 73 per cent owned by the Indian engineering conglomerate Mahindra & Mahindra, and imported into the UK by SsangYong Motor UK. Established in 1954, SsangYong is Korea's oldest vehicle manufacturer and only 4x4 and SUV specialist producer. There are currently some 65 SsangYong dealers covering England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, with new locations being added to the network all the time.
