Vauxhall has launched a new extended warranty service, specifically created for the Corsa driving school market.
Most extended warranty providers exclude cars used for driving instruction because of the higher annual mileage they incur. The new warranty offers extended cover for vehicles beyond the manufacturer warranty which is set at three years from new or 60,000 miles – whichever is reached first.
As it’s impossible to predict when a driving instructor’s vehicle will reach 60,000 miles, the extended warranty cover is available at the time of new car purchase by the driving school or independent instructor.
Mark Pinkney, director of aftersales from Vauxhall, said: “We pride ourselves on looking after the needs of our customers throughout the ownership experience and driving schools and their instructors are an important part of our customer family.
“The launch of this new extended warranty programme, designed specifically with them in mind, acknowledges their loyalty to the Vauxhall Corsa. By saving instructors the up-front cost if any covered parts fail, and the assurance that their vehicle will be repaired to Vauxhall’s standards, they can be confident their livelihood is protected, and that their pupils are in safe hands.”
The Vauxhall Corsa is one of the UK’s top two models chosen by driving schools.
