SsangYong is introducing a seven-year/150,000-mile warranty for its new Musso pickup, along with the Rexton SUV that it’s based on.
Launching this summer, the new Musso has been designed to offer SUV-derived refinement and equipment levels to cater for more lifestyle buyers, boosted by the new warranty.
In the case of the Rexton, the new warranty is valid from 1 July and can be applied retrospectively to all new Rextons sold since launch, replacing the previous five-year limitless mileage warranty. The new warranty can also be applied to all other models purchased since 1 January 2018 at a cost of £500.
The warranty covers all the major mechanical components including wheel bearings, suspension joints and bushes, steering joints, shock absorbers and even the audio system. Wearable components are covered for one year or 12,500 miles, and the battery and paintwork for three years.
“We believe in the strength of our new truck,” said Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motor UK, “so we’re announcing this new warranty which will also apply to Rexton on which Musso is based. No other pick-up or SUV comes with such comprehensive reassurance, and without the small-print of so many other manufacturer warranties.”For more of the latest industry news, click here.
