Mumbai. The Porsche Approved programme is now available across India with a comprehensive warranty on pre-owned cars for a minimum of 12 months, including access to the Porsche Assistance 24-hour roadside service after passing a rigorous 111-point inspection.
Ensuring peace of mind even after its new car warranty has expired, Porsche India is providing reassurance to new owners of pre-owned vehicles with the Porsche Approved programme, which includes a warranty that covers all the essentials beyond the regular new car contract.
Brand Director of Porsche India, Manolito Vujicic says Porsche Approved aims to ensure that more Porsches will remain active on Indian roads for many years to come: “Our Porsche Approved programme offers a high level of quality by passing a 111-point check on every pre-owned Porsche. This means that every vehicle should meet the standard of its original condition and thus enhances the value of any model carrying the ‘Approved’ seal. With this seal we certify that only genuine Porsche parts have been used and installed by qualified Porsche technicians.”
The 12-month warranty includes repairs to all vehicle components including labour charges, except consumables and wear and tear parts such as wiper blades, tyres, fluids and brake pads. While the term depends on the age of the vehicle, it mostly covers any Porsche that has not completed 200,000 km and is up to six years old.
Manolito Vujicic says: “This is an important step for Porsche India to extend our services into the pre-owned car segment, as it shows our commitment to customer satisfaction long after the car has been sold and even to customers who have never owned a new Porsche. Our goal is for every Porsche to maintain its high quality regardless of age as a token of our gratitude to our customers for their many years of loyalty and support.”
With the launch of Porsche Approved, customers can gain reassurance in purchasing pre-owned models. They can explore the range online through the Porsche Finder, safe in the knowledge that ‘Approved’ models have received the same care as new Porsche vehicles and offer the same driving pleasure as on the day they left the factory.
