Peugeot Malaysia reverts to 5-year warranty for new cars – 7-year coverage now optional, from RM895

Peugeot Malaysia has announced its new standard warranty package for all new Peugeot vehicles, which is coverage for five years or 150,000 km, effective immediately. The five-year warranty coverage consists of three years of manufacturer coverage and a two-year extended warranty, according to the company.

This new five-year warranty for new Peugeot vehicles may be extended with an additional two-year warranty package as a cost option, bringing the total coverage duration to seven years or 200,000 km. Customers may also purchase the extended warranty package within 90 days of vehicle purchase for a promotional price, or at normal pricing at any time before the final 90 days of their vehicles’ warranty period.

Promotional pricing for the extended warranty purchased in the first 90 days of vehicle purchase for new Peugeot vehicles start from RM895 for the 2008, or RM1,557 at normal pricing before the final 90 days of the vehicle’s warranty period. For the 3008 and the recently launched 408, this is RM957, or RM1,659 at the normal price. For the 5008, this is priced at RM1,049, or RM1,811 at the normal price.

This new standard warranty term replaces the previous seven-year coverage first introduced when Stellantis officially took over the Peugeot brand in Malaysia earlier in the year. The limited-time promotion has now ended (on May 31, 2024).

However, we have been informed that the cost of the optional extended warranty can be offset or absorbed with the ongoing rebates or cash offers available at Peugeot dealerships. Effectively, customers can choose to use the cash rebate to “pay” for the warranty extension (at no extra cost), or forgo the longer coverage to enjoy a lower downpayment amount. With the second option, the customer will still have the flexibility to extend the warranty at a later date.

The option of warranty extension also applies to the Landtrek pick-up truck, where its existing three-year, 100,000 km warranty may be extended by two years for a total coverage of five years or 150,000 km for a fee of RM2,942, or by four years for a total coverage of seven years or 200,000 km for a fee of RM5,148 within the first 90 days of purchasing the pick-up truck.

“Our customers are our top priority, and we want to ensure an enhanced worry-free ownership experience for all. We want to give our customers the flexibility to choose their warranty coverage based on their needs. We understand that purchasing a new car is a significant investment, and this extended coverage reflects our promise to build long lasting relationships with our valued Peugeot customers in Malaysia,” Stellantis Malaysia MD Jamie Francis Morais said in a statement.

On the the matter of customer vehicles purchased from the previous distributor, warranty for these vehicles will be carried over and be honoured by Stellantis Malaysia, though roadside assistance may vary. To check on a vehicle’s warranty status, customers may check with an authorised service centre, or call the one-stop call centre at 1-800-18-7852 to find out more.

    I think the issue here is not getting the people to go for the 7 years warranty but getting people to even enter the showroom to view the car. Stelantis need a lot of roadshow to re-brand the image. With China cars around the corner, it’s gonna be an uphill task with this kind of pricing.

    My Salesmen told me that basically you get an extra discount (rebate) if you dont take the 2 extra yrs EW. But if you want total 7 yrs, then they dont give you the discount (rebate). I think this is fair lah…Let the customer choose if they want discount or 2yrs EW
