Goo Warranty 1

Proto Malaysia, together with Car Credo Malaysia and Opal Auto Mart, has officially introduced Goo Warranty at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today. The aftermarket warranty scheme will provide used car buyers with powertrain coverage on vehicles certified by the Goo Kantei inspection service.

The warranty service, which will be available from January starting in the Klang Valley area, covers powertrain components including the engine, transmission, engine control unit (ECU) and transmission control unit (TCU) for up to 12 months or 25,000 km, whichever comes first. Private-registered vehicles up to eight years old with mileage of up to 100,000 km are eligible for the warranty.

To be entitled for the service, the vehicle will be sent to Goo Kantei, where an inspection covering a maximum of 344 points around the vehicle’s structure, bodywork and engine will be conducted. The results will be described on a form, and the car will be given certification along with a star rating based on its condition. The inspection is certified by the Japan Automobile Appraisal Association (JAAA).

Warranty claims will be serviced by Opal and its 124 authorised panel workshops nationwide, and the service, claims Proto Malaysia, is designed to be underwritten by a “well-established and reputable insurance company” for added financial stability.
