If you bought an Audi within the last two years, then there's a bit of good news for you. The German automaker has announced that they will be extending warranties. This covers vehicles that are about to end their warranty periods between March 1, 2020 to May 31, 2020.
Audi has specified that only vehicles produced in Europe, Brazil, Mexico, and India will get the extended warranty, though. Since Philippine-market models are sourced from Europe, Audi vehicles sold here by the official distributor, PGA Cars, qualify under the program. The period for the extension ends three months after the expiration of the original new car or extended warranty, at the latest on 31st August 2020.
“Many of our dealer partners worldwide are still closed or just in the process of opening their doors again. We are therefore making adjustments in a number of areas in order to ensure our customers still have a premium experience with the Audi brand, as well as to ensure the future of our dealerships,” says Horst Hanschur, Vice President Retail Business Development and Customer Services.”
The warranty for local Audi models currently stands at two years, so if your warranty is about to expire, you get a 90-day (three-month) extension. Audi does say that mileage restrictions will remain in place, depending on the country where it's sold and the distributor's policy. Thankfully for Audi owners here, they get unlimited mileage warranty within those two years.
This warranty extension also applies to another brand distributed by PGA Cars: Porsche. Cars sold by the official distributor are also a part of the three-month extension, which should be a relief for those who bought cars from them, be it a Porsche or an Audi.
