Free 30-day warranties for Auto Trader buyers

Fri, 02 Feb 2007
(Press Release):-

Car buyers can now benefit from the peace of mind offered by a free 30-day warranty on any vehicle bought through Auto Trader magazine or

Research shows that the failure rate of cars leaps up by 50 percent, and will break down on average a third of the time*, as the vehicle moves out of the comfort zone provided by the standard manufacturer’s 3-year warranty.

In a recent Auto Trader survey of more than 1,250 car owners, 86 percent said the peace of mind from a warranty is worthwhile, and with the majority of the cars featured in Auto Trader either approaching or past the 3-year mark, some initial protection against sudden failures will ease the minds of potential purchasers.

Auto Trader’s 30-day warranties includes cover for up to £500 parts and labour for repairs because of mechanical or electrical failure. Motorists can also choose where to get their vehicle repaired in the event of a breakdown.

Auto Trader Warranty is administered by Warranty Direct and Lloyds of London.
