A spokesman for the company says the ‘VIP’ deal represented up to £3,000 worth of servicing and replacement parts, and would cover Range Rover owners for five years or 75,000 miles.
He adds the offer would not be extended to 2005 models, which are due to go into production from September, but would apply to all ’04 models until they go out of production. Range Rover claims the package does not mean dealers will make any less money from servicing the vehicles than they did before the offer became available.
Land Rover UK’s MD Phil Popham, comments: “This is an unbeatable value programme, which underlines our confidence in the vehicle. The initiative will benefit customers with a class-leading maintenance package, combined with residual values that reflect the attention paid to the vehicle during ownership.”
BMW offers a five-year warranty under its TLC package on Mini, costing £100, and Concours on the 7-series (£500). Hyundai is the only carmaker to offer a full five-year warranty as part of the purchase price.
