Mitsubishi Introduce Five-Year Warranty as Standard

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi Motors have today introduced a comprehensive five-year warranty across all models including the excellent Outlander PHEV, giving customers extra confidence and peace of mind.

As of the 1st January 2015, all Mitsubishi cars and commercial vehicles will come as standard with a fully comprehensive five-year warranty package. Certain vehicles, such as the L200 benefit from an extended range warranty as standard, offering flexibility to commercial and small business owners (see footnote below).

In addition, all Mitsubishi models come with a three-year, pan European roadside assistance package – MAP (Mitsubishi Assistance Package) so that Mitsubishi customers can keep their vehicles on the road, without the worry of vehicle downtime.

The new warranty brings Mitsubishi into line with competitors such as Toyota who have offered a five year standard warranty for several years, but falls short of the likes of Kia who offer a seven year warranty.

In the UK, Mitsubishi Motors experienced a very successful 2014 with vehicle sales growing substantially by 74.4 per cent, compared to the UK market which grew by 9.4 per cent. Today’s announcement will undoubtedly increase dealer showroom traffic and boost sales further next year.

Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said:

“The move to a 5-year warranty is a reflection of Mitsubishi’s confidence in the unrivalled quality and reliability of our product. It is especially significant when you consider the hard working nature of some of our vehicles such as Shogun, and leading edge ultra-low emission technologies in the Outlander plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.”
