Porsche extends used car warranty

Carmaker Porsche has extended its warranty cover for approved used cars by two years.

The additional warranty would pay for all labour and material costs covering all parts of the engine, fuel system and cooling systems, transmission, steering/suspension, brakes, air-conditioning, electrics and body.

Motorists can take advantage of the scheme by buying pre-owned models under the Porsche Approved Used scheme.

Porsche grants its approval seal to used cars only after subjecting them to a 111-point check.

The new scheme can also potentially increase the re-sale value of a car since the two-year warranty is fully transferable if the vehicle is sold privately or back to a Porsche Centre.
